I have been to many places with my family but never been on a solo trip. So I decided to celebrate this Valentine’s with a just-me-and-my-bag visit to Shillong. I don't need any love tips, I love myself!
To avoid the last minute rush, I booked tickets much in advance and now plan to spend 14th February in the lap of the mountains – away from the madding city crowd.

Eat out with single friends
I know at least ten singles (boys and girls) from school and college. One day, I created a Whatsapp group called ‘Sexy Singles’ for all of us where to give love tips! Now we all plan to hang out together on V-Day!
I have already searched for a really good restaurant that serves awesome food and booked a table in advance! We plan to dine, dance and enjoy our singlehood together.

Movie date with myself
Have you experienced the thrill of sitting alone in a cinema hall, watching your favourite movie? This Valentine’s Day, I want to do exactly this.
I have booked advanced tickets for ‘Gully Boy’. When Ranveer is on the screen to give love tips, I don’t really need any other company!

Be the change
I was raised in a conservative family. I was never allowed to have boys as friends and studied in a girls-only school. But things have changed now.
I started working for an IT firm in Bangalore. My mother has moved in with me for now and is aware that I have many male colleagues, some of whom are also friends. So this Valentine’s Day, she has invited all my office friends – both men and women, to our home on the eve of Valentine’s for maa ke haath ka khana. Guess what! Everyone confirmed with a yes!

Prepare for the next Valentine's
I hope to celebrate the next V Day with a partner listening to her love tips. So I have taken the first step, creating an online profile on dating websites, including Tinder.
I also plan to create a list of qualities that I want to see in my partner. Based on that I would want to assess myself and see if I have the same qualities.
