February 14 is quickly approaching and even if you're single it's fun to make plans. While couples typically celebrate this romantic holiday, there is no reason single people can't join in the fun and make it a special night for you. You're worth it! We found 12 super fun things to do if you're single on Valentine's Day in Calgary.

You might not want to spend the evening in a restaurant packed with couples, but there are a ton of other fun ways you can spend Valentines day solo or with your other single friends.

One of the best parts about being single is you don't need to wait to see what your date planned. Instead, you can go ahead and do whatever you want.

Which means you can go ahead and indulge in a delicious hot chocolate tasting tour, or explore breathtaking light installations at Calgary's Glow Festival. Better yet, you could do both.

Meanwhile, romantics will want to take cute selfies at the adorable candy heart pop-up at The CORE Shopping Centre.

Or you could sip wine at a laid back painting class where you'll get to paint a tree of hearts.
