Valentines For Singles – how to survive the hearts, chocolates and smug couples

Hate Valentines Day? Yes yes yes, it’s very American and cheesy. And we don’t need one day of the year to tell people we love them do we? Of course not. But, isn’t it nice to have an excuse to do that? I love a lame card and box of chocolates. I mean what girl would ever turn down a box of chocolates? In fact, if you have an uneaten box of chocolates just lying around you should definitely send them to the SpeedDater office.

So where does that leave our single Valentines? Curled up on the sofa with a ready meal for one? HELL NO. Get out and embrace being single. Some couples are probably jealous of single Valentines and their freedom! Firstly you need to avoid all smug couples – don’t even think about going out to dinner or a show on your own. You need to be around your own kind on Valentines Day. You need to remind yourself how great it can be to be single. The best way to do that – guaranteed – is to grab a load of your single and fabulous mates and attend a Valentines for singles event or party.
