Guest blogger Rachel Sarah: If you're a single mom like me, Valentine's Day just might be that sore reminder that your current adult companion is really an imaginary friend.

Let's face it, we all want to love and be loved. As clichè 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.

4. One of my favorite ideas comes from Wendy Merrill, author of "Falling Into Manholes": Make a list of 10 things you love about yourself.

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.
