How To Survive Valentine’s As Told By A Single Person

Valentine’s Day is a very trying time for all of us out there who have to buy our own chocolate. The inescapable romance clogging up your timelines and couples coming out of the woodwork to force their love in your face. The best plan to avoid the unsightly mushy-gushy mess is to hide in your house and drown out all the love doves outside with your favorite Netflix shows. But what if you’re waiting on the latest season of your favorite show to finally hit Netflix? Then try out one of these Wolfpack Certified alternatives.


  1. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: The title says it all. Also, it’s a musical, who can resist musicals?
  2. Love Actually: Okay, so this is technically a romantic movie, but the couples on screen certainly seem unhappy. It just proves it’s better to stay single in these trying times.
  3. 500 Days Of Summer: It’ll make you feel better about your own failed relationships while also giving you a chance to marvel at Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
  4. The Walking Dead: What’s the best way to feel better? Watching Andrew Lincoln tear zombies apart, of course.
  5. Black Mirror: It’ll encourage you to delete your Tinder account.
  6. Titanic: It’s a classic. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, boy dies, girl goes on. What more could you want?
  7. Orange Is The New Black: Take your mind off your romantic problems by throwing yourself into these girls’ problems.
  8. Stranger Things: Those lovable kids could make even the most heartbroken of us smile.
  9. Breaking Bad: Just a little something to take the edge off.
  10. The Office: Pam and Jim might just have the greatest romance of all time. But if that’s not your cup of tea, you can watch purely for Michael Scott’s antics.
  11. Parks and Rec: Remind yourself that friends are the only ones who really matter with the iconic Galentine’s episode. And if you’re a glutton for pain you can watch all their Valentine’s episodes back-to-back.
  12. Gossip Girl: Talk about not needing a man in your life. These women show that girl power is all you need.
  13. Vampire Diaries: Let’s be honest, the number one reason to watch TVD is to drool over the eye candy. If you can’t catch a boy yourself, might as well live vicariously through Nina Dobrev.
  14. The Entire Star Wars Franchise: Leia and Luke? Padme and Anakin? What happened to Han Solo?! More like reasons never to fall in love.
