Things to do for the lonely on Valentine's Day

I've already written my views on Valentine's Day, but since it exists and there won't be a way to prevent some of us to feel lonely and forsaken, because everything around will remind us that any of us have split, divorced or widowed and we've no one around to care for and be cared, we'll see what we can do instead to have a pleasant day.
I'd, for instance, take the day off from work if one happens to have a job. If one can't tell them that one has got its periods, one can always tell them that one got a bad migraine or whatever new ailment one can think of. Migraine is the cause of lot of absentism from work and I'm serious. Doctors know best.
After the call or email, one may go back to bed bit longer, but I'd have a chance to do these things that I'd love doing on week days, but I can't do because this time belongs to the boss, such as having a relaxing breakfast with almost no end while listening to one's favourite music.
Then, it'd be a foamy bath and to put on one's best clothes to go out.
Whether separated, divorced or widowed, I'd avoid these places where one can't see or be seen. That's why it's important to put on one's best clothes.
People that have been used to be in public places with a partner are always ashamed to be seen alone such as dining alone in a restaurant or having a drink in a bar. It may be unbelievable, but it's true. I've known quite a number of them. They rather stay at home pitying themselves than going out to face the world. Yet, the world is full of people eating or drinking on their own.
Have an uplifting stroll in the park, a meal in a good restaurant and a drink in a bar with live music and be afraid not to approach someone. They can't be offended if one approaches them politely and with a genuine smile. If they refuse talking to you too bad for them. They don't know what they're missing in having a good conversation with you.
It'll be a day to not think of that person you've lost, because you aren't going to retrieve them staying at home crying or moaning about them and you don't know who might sit by your table in this restaurant you've chosen or elbowing over the counter of this bar with live music. But be cautious if you happen to meet someone and to think that you've got a new lovable person in your life, because he or she may not be for this and you're going to make the same mistake again.
It's exactly what I'll do no matter of what I think of such a rosy day.

Valentines Day is too comercialized for me. I'll be spending it on my own.

Yes, one should move on. I like your attitude.
