If you don’t have the emotional willpower to withstand couples whispering “I love you” in each other's ear, take control of February14th. Claim your own personal love day for yourself. Just think, you’ll avoid cupid-struck crowds and probably score a reservation at that new restaurant that you’ve wanted to try.
Host a Cocktail Party
Find a babysitter or family relative willing to watch your children in the comfort of their own home while you host a living single Valentine’s Day party in yours. Carol, 32, mimicked an episode from the hit show Sex and the City by inviting friends to a themed cocktail event, asking each guest to forgo the gift of wine or dessert and bring a single friend of the opposite sex instead. Carol’s party offered people food, drinks and a chance to meet someone new.
Instead of trying to force your single situation into one that’s filled with couples, take yourself to where the single folks go. Search your local area for single groups, events or social gatherings taking place on Valentine’s Day. Most cities host Single Balls, concerts and other activities for dateless hearts. Some even have anti-valentine’s day themes to carry you through the evening. Look in your local newspaper or online for Valentine’s Day single events in your area.
