To the single women of New York City, Valentine's Day can be a pretty despicable and dreaded day-- and even more detestable for those who are newly single.

There's countless things to do in the big city to make this holiday a regular day, especially for those who want to hurl at the couples parading their love in the form of generic red roses and bad tasting chocolates.

No worries, I got you, girls. This day is about you and embracing your fabulous single life with your single girlfriends.

This is about Gal-entine's Day, also known as love for your girlfriends day. Here are 32 things that are better than a boyfriend on Valentines Day.

1. Taking a SoulCycle class


2. Staring at your smoking hot SoulCycle instructor

3. A bottomless mimosa brunch with your besties


4. Netflix... evidently
