Let's face it, we all want to love and be loved. As cliché as it sounds, however, at the end of the day, this is what matters: you, your kids, your friends, your family.
Instead of asking "Where is he?," celebrate YOU on Valentine's Day. If you don't have a date, here's how you can make the most of it:
1. Host an "anti-Valentines Day" girls' night. Blogger Lisa Jey Davis, aka Ms. Cheevious suggests themes like 'As Single as I Wanna' Be' or 'I'd Rather Be Single Than with My Ex.'
2. Splurge on yourself because you deserve it: send yourself flowers and buy yourself the best, darkest chocolate.
3. Ask a man out, impulsively and on the spot.
5. Invite your girlfriends over. Let the kids watch a movie in the other room -- while you and your friends browse men online.
6. Wear a T-shirt that says, "Single Parents LOVE More."
7. Make heart cookies with your kids. Use extra vanilla frosting.
8. Rent a sappy single parent love movie, such as "Sleepless in Seattle," "Love Actually," or "Definitely Maybe."
9. Get your adrenaline rush by doing something passionate that doesn't involve a man: jump out of a parachute, go white water rafting.
10. Hydrate your flower.
