Date someone because you want to be with him/her - not because you want to have a date for Valentine's Day.

I agree that having a Valentine for the sake of having one isn't great but if you insist, ask a friend to match you up with one of their compatible single friends NOW and hope that things work out in time for Valentines. If that's a no-go, start online dating. Else, ask out the next handsome (single) guy you see while pursuing a favorite hobby. If all else fails, I highly advise against purchasing the services of a gigolo but it's an option.
