Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love and kinship, and there’s no other more significant than your bestie. Take it from Abbi and Ilana: You don’t need romance to have a memorable date night. Whether you’re at a classy prix fixe meal or out on the town scouting for boys, it’s impossible to have FOMO when you’re with your BFF.
A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES
Movie dates are perfect for low-key pals who just want to kick back with smuggled-in bodega snacks and hop from flick to flick. And unlike on romantic movie dates, your BFF won’t try to get handsy in the middle of the film. Most of the time, at least.
BE EACH OTHER’S WINGWOMEN
Hitting the town is always easier when you’re with your partner in crime. The only downside to using the buddy system is that you sometimes end up going home with a pair of douchey-but-cute DJs who will inevitably try to coax you both into group sex.
A PRICEY SHELLFISH DINNER FOR TWO
Making reservations at fancy-pants restaurants isn’t just for those official-on-Facebook types. Dining out with your best gal pal means you can dish about basically anything, whether it’s a tricky condom situation or your secret cartoon crush. (No judgment.)
HIT UP A WEEZY SHOW
Planning dates can be complicated, but scrambling last-minute to see Lil Wayne IRL is the kind of thing you two do best. Even if your BFF would rather not make a fuss, you know that fronting the cash is totally worth it. After all, you two are so close that you’re practically having cyber threesomes.
