Whether your Facebook status says single or “it’s complicated,” everyone deserves a little TLC during Valentine’s Day. It’s the holiday of love, affection and – most importantly – free chocolate. Take the time out to #treatyoself and indulge in these fun and wallet-friendly date ideas.
How To Be Single
Alice, played by Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson, realizes that she needs to breakup with her boyfriend after her fourth year in college. She moves to New York to pursue her job as a paralegal and meets Robin, played by Rebel Wilson, who helps her around the city. With Robin’s partying, one-night stand loving personality, Alice learns how to love the single life.
Marvel antihero Deadpool makes his debut this Valentine’s Day. Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, is a Special Forces ex-operative turned mercenary. When Ajax, played by Ed Skrein, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool, it leaves him with super-human healing powers and a vulgar sense of humor. With help from his allies, he uses his newfound powers to find Ajax and bring him to justice.
