On social media, you might see a barrage of photos of how they celebrated their romance. Don’t let it affect you. Don't worry if you find yourself alone on Valentine’s Day. Just because you don’t have anyone to share it with, doesn’t mean the day itself can’t be special. Make this Valentine’s Day special by loving yourself and treat yourself to these 10 classes.
