Valentine’s Day Movie Marathon Suggestions
Are your Valentine’s Day plans for this year shaping up to involve your bed, a playlist of Lana Del Rey, a box of chocolates, and a tissue box? If your ideal celebration leans toward introspective alone time rather than the traditional romantic rendezvous, sometimes without a choice, you’ve landed in the right spot. While some revel in the day with a significant other, chocolates, and flowers, or others celebrate with friends and a bottle of champagne while discussing past relationships, there’s a unique charm in embracing solitude this upcoming V-day. Feel free to indulge in some self-care – grab those chocolates, shed a few tears, and accompany your alone time with a quintessential Valentine’s Day movie.
Approaching a solo V-day movie binge offers various options, so let’s explore them. If you’re not in the mood for wallowing over Hollywood heartthrobs and prefer a more lighthearted experience, opt for a romantic comedy. A classic rom-com serves as the perfect choice to partake in the day of love while relishing in self-care. Some must-watch classics include “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” “10 Things I Hate About You,” “Notting Hill,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” and “Crazy Stupid Love.” For those fully immersed in the spirit, consider the aptly titled film “Valentine’s Day.”
On the opposite end of the emotional spectrum, if you’re inclined to spend the day immersed in heart-wrenching tales and shedding a few tears over a past love, there are options tailored for that mood. Films like “The Notebook,” “Me Before You,” “Five Feet Apart,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” and the timeless classic “Titanic” promise to elicit heartfelt emotions, providing a suitable way to spend your Valentine’s Day if tears are in order.
Regardless of how you choose to spend Valentine’s Day, embracing a solo personal day can be a powerful antidote to single sadness. So, fire up your TV, break free from a lingering funk (or embrace it if a day of crying and wallowing is in order), and treat yourself to a classic romance movie this upcoming Valentine’s Day.
