Lucky are the taken bunch because heart’s day is coming, which is when everyone gets the excuse to go extra and show their partner how much they care through romantic gestures. But for us singles though, it’s just another normal Sunday — but that doesn’t mean we have to sulk all day! If you’ve got no plans for Valentine’s Day, go for a movie marathon alone or with your other single friends to celebrate the fact that being single isn’t too bad. Here are some suggestions:
Gone Girl (2014)
Gone Girl is that movie that will make you realize that relationships aren’t as #goals as they seem. “Perfect” marriages have their own cracks too, just like Amy and Nick’s. On the day of their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing, and Nick quickly becomes the primary suspect. But as with their marriage, Amy’s disappearance is not what it seems…
Someone Great (2019)
What’s the point of staying with someone who doesn’t see a future with you? Jenny Young finally lands her dream job as a music journalist but ends up getting dumped by her long-term boyfriend after he finds out she needs to move to the other side of the country. Going on one last big adventure in New York City, Jenny realizes that sometimes, all you need is a whole lot of booze, courage, good music, and two amazing best friends to get through a bad breakup.
The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
Maybe it’s time to accept that the true devil in this film is neither high fashion magazine EIC Miranda Priestly nor her secretary Emily Charlton but Andy’s boyfriend Nate all along. He’s that unsupportive BF who judges you for “changing” when clearly, you’re just doing your job well!
How to Be Single (2016)
Fresh out of college, Alice decides to take a break from her long-term relationship. Eager for adventure and new experiences, she moves to New York and begins working as a paralegal. There, she meets her wild co-worker Robin, who helps her navigate the dating scene again.
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
How far can revenge take you? Beginning with a wedding dress and an unborn child, the Bride promises to take revenge on the group of assassins and their leader Bill after they try to kill her and her baby. If you’re in the mood for some action on Valentine’s, this classic, including the many gory murders in it, is hella cathartic.
The First Wives Club (1996)
If you’re currently missing your girlfriends, this movie’s for you. What happens when a group of friends gets dumped by their husbands for younger women? You take revenge — together. If you’ve been recently dumped, you’ll realize it’s not so bad when you’ve got friends to help you recover along the way.
Relationships can get messy, especially when couples begin growing apart. Closer takes a deeper and more realistic look into relationships, particularly one where a man falls for the woman of another. If this happens to you in real life, will you be able to manage and turn a blind eye to all the lies of infidelities?
Legally Blonde (2001)
If it weren’t for heartbreak, Elle Woods wouldn’t find herself studying rigorously to enter Harvard Law. Initially entering law school with the goal of winning her ex back, Elle becomes something greater. As she breaks the dumb blonde stereotype, Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde proves that heartbreak can lead to the discovery of your best self. Who needs a man when you’ve got big dreams?
