If you're tired of people feeling sorry for you or thinking you're miserable on the so-called day of love, we hear you.

Valentine's Day is supposed to be about couples, but for some reason it often gets turned into a day of reminding single people they're alone. But this year, instead of being hard on yourself or people-watching couples at dinner (we all do it), embrace being single and everything that comes with it.

Single means freedom, and just like any other holiday, there's something amazing about saving money, buying presents for yourself and not having to worry about surprising anyone else with some brilliant romantic idea.

Here are the best things about being single on Valentine's Day. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below:
