1. Go out to dinner with your friends. If you have other single friends, call them up and tell them that you're going out. Keeping in mind that most restaurants are going to be packed and some require reservations for Valentine's Day, so be flexible if you don't already have plans.
2. Hit the clubs. There is no better way to meet other singles than to hit the clubs. Sure, you're going to run into the pawing couples, but there are a going to plenty of other singles anxious to meet new people.
3. Not in the mood to get all dolled up? Fine, go to Barnes and Nobles. There's you might run into a well-read man, or possibly a fellow geek hanging out in the technology section.
4. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Don't hesitate in making the first move. Guys sometimes get the wrong impression. We don't always send the right signals that tells a guy we're interested, or even available. So, if you see a guy, think he's cute, just say, "Hello." What's the worst that can happen?
5. Stop feeling sorry for yourself! Not every girl getting flowers is happy in her relationship. Valentine's Day lasts for 24 hours, but a happy relationship is more than a dozen roses.
Remember, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being single, just don’t be a pitiful single. People can smell desperation from miles away and they usually run in the opposite direction. No matter what you end up doing, don't let it be in front of the tube and please put the ice cream down. There's a whole world out there. Now get out and enjoy it!
