We've got tips to ensure you've got a date next Valentine's Day!
Also keep in mind who you are recruiting to come out with you. The last person you want to invite is your "Debbie Downer," next-door neighbor who is going to bitch and moan all night about how you guys are going to be single for the rest of your lives!
If you’re looking to have a good time and are seeking attention, perhaps you shouldn’t invite your hottest girlfriend to come out with you. “Rachelle” may be a good friend and all, but think about how you feel when you’re out with her. If you feel invisible and like you’re always second choice with all the guys when you're out with her, then maybe Valentine’s Day isn’t the night to invite your Brazilian supermodel friend out. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result—I’m just saying!
If you’re looking to meet men on Valentine’s Day here’s another hint…don’t hit the bars with your "gay husband." Everyone is going to think you guys are together, which won’t help either of your causes! Trust me, it took me like eight years of living in NYC to figure that one out.
If you don’t have a single girlfriend to go out with, be pro-active and find one. Post a platonic ad on Craig’s List looking for a single wing woman to go out with on Valentine’s Day. I’ve done this before and definitely met some super cool women, some of whom I’m still friends with. My dating agency also offers a "wing woman" speed networking event where you can meet 10-20 women in one night, one of which who could potentially be your new BFF and Valentine’s Day date.3. Milk It! Valentine’s Day is one of the most commercialized holidays ever. Just because you aren’t in a relationship doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take full advantage of all of the promotions and discounts made available to couples. Simply recruit your favorite wing woman, "gay husband" or platonic guy friend to take advantage of all of the “couples offers”. Book a “couples” massage, facial or manicure/pedicure together. Many restaurants will also be offering amazing tasting menus and special promotions on Valentine’s Day. As a single gal you definitely want to take full advantage of these types of Valentine’s Day offers. Use the money you would normally be spending on a significant other and splurge on yourself and/or your friends.
