Thanks to Valentine’s Day, romantic relationships tend to get all the love in February. And don’t get it twisted, the partner who has had your back through thick and thin deserves homemade Valentine’s Day breakfast, awesome gifts and maybe even a special night out if that’s your thing. But for those of us who don’t have a special someone, or want to celebrate their pals too, don’t forget about Galentine’s Day.
