#GALentine's Day – the single girl's survival guide

Yes, Valentine's Day is a date reserved for those that are loved up, but what about for us single gals? Whether this is the ideal time for you to catch the eye of a potential suitor or just to make your ex way more sorry that he lost you – I have an ASOS wish list to make sure you got this.

Boy, bye.

Sometimes, the best way to get over somebody is to get the attention of somebody else and look absolutely fire whilst doing it. Trust me, if you walk into the bar wearing this with some killer black jeans and some chunky heels, you’ll not struggle for Instagram likes...

Bring the bedroom to the bar

Whether you’re heading out for drinks with the gals or going on a cleverly timed Tinder date - the link back to bed by wearing the kimono trend with this Warehouse pyjama blouse will definitely get potential baes thoughts racing. RESULT.

Looking to turn things around? Learn from the best...

Sometimes Valentine's Day reminds us that maybe we shouldn’t have thrown that drink over our ex and maybe we should of given that nice guy another date. If you’re looking to improve your relationship skills or maybe send it to your friends-with-benefits as a very direct hint, this School of Life book is ideal.

Not the relationship type?

Why not leave this cheeky card on your fit work colleague’s desk or pop it under their room door if they're a flatmate and see what happens? Maybe anonymously to avoid the awkwardness of rejection…

Show the love to your best gal

It has been said that our girlfriends are our soulmates and boys are just there for fun. Why not treat the special gal in your life to this cute set of phone cases; best friend necklaces are so 2001.

Completely gone off boys? Yeah, me too.

Whether you’ve just been dumped at the completely inconvenient time of February or you want to go out on Valentine's weekend without the entire single population trying it on with you, why not wear this fun and informative pin to really show how you feel?

Feeling vengeful? A little black book with a twist…

Valentine's day can bring back a lot of bad memories and it’s always best to get our feeling down on paper. Why not write down your exes in this aptly titled book with their credentials, it’ll absolutely make for hilarious reading with the girls. Slightly crazy, but definitely funny. It's like the Burn Book, but better!

Feeling more unattractive than ever? Stop.

Can I just say, as a single girl myself, Valentine's Day isn’t exactly my favourite occasion. However, a good way to perk yourself up if you’re feeling undesirable is definitely a good old tan. Nothing makes me feel better naked (or dressed) than buffed tanned skin. Go out and get ‘em you bronzed goddess.
