You have time for activities that you've always wanted to do.

Whether it's yoga at Moksha or that spin class at YEG Cycle.

Edmonton hands down has the best bakeries and foodie spots for post-breakup recovery.

Duchess Bakery, Prairie Noodle Shop, Doughnut Party, Love PIZZA, shall we keep going?

There's always fun events happening in the city for you and your single friends.

From Western Canada Fashion Week, PARKSHOW, Oilers game at Rogers Place.

You get all the JACEK treats to yourself.

Do we need to go into detail with this one?

You can enjoy the 50% off V-Day chocolates tomorrow.

Hit up Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, Superstore. Don't worry, we got you on this one.

You don't have to worry about making reservations at restaurants.

No more reservations at La Ronde, The Harvest Room, Wildflower. Your wallet is smiling right now.

No more last minute shopping for that Valentine's Day outfit at Workhall or The Helm.

Now you can shop whenever you want, wherever you want. And the best part is, you can look good for yourself.

Less trips to Bunches Flowers.

But it doesn't mean that you shouldn't buy them for yourself. We just mean that it's one less person to buy flowers for.

It's an excuse to hang out with your single friends at Cactus Club.

Followed by a night out at The Bower on a Friday night.

You're less likely to be on the Kiss Cam during an Oilers Game at Rogers Place.

Even if you do end up on the kiss cam, just kiss that $12 cup of beer in your hand.

Your S/O comes in the form of that giant stuffed bear or body pillow from Costco.

So if you ever feel down, you'll have someone to cuddle with.
