Are you wallowing in self-pity? Are you knocking your head silly on the wall for not planning ahead for a date with a crush? Have you been hopelessly single? Do your crushes treat you like a close sibling of sorts? Do you want to get out of it and bare it all and scream "I AM A (WO)MAN AND I WANT YOU!!!"? Ok, maybe that was a little off, but you know what… ?

Seriously speaking, it doesn’t really matter since Valentine’s Day is already so commercialised. Moreover, if you really love a person, isn’t everyday supposed to be special anyway? 😉 Ok, ok. I get it. It’s just a "special day" thing right? So, what can you do if you are prince- or princess-less on Valentine’s Day? Fret not, because there are really a 1001 things you can do without standing out in the crowd as the "unwanted one".

  1. Ask a fellow single out for a meal. Dress casual and eat out anywhere and just have some great fun. Really, that can be fun too. 😉 Doesn’t matter if it’s 2 guys going out on a dinner date meal together. Everyone else will be too lovey dovey to notice anyway.
  2. Ask a few singles out for kopi! Make it a cuppa at Starbucks! Or the kopitiam of your choice 😉 … and join the other ah beis looking at the TV box or drinking Tiger
  3. Play <insert favourite multi-player game>. After all, this is the best time to up your points and lean over your opponents 🙂
  4. Join Ridzuan at Starbucks @ Raffles City to light up the place
  5. … erm … erm … Form a Singles Support Group?!

Okie… perhaps I am out of ideas, but really, it’s just another day. If you have a loved one, everyday should be like V-day, isn’t it? Not to mention that flowers would cost a fraction 😉

    are all of you single? for couples, its a day to express your love. you don’t buy flowers everyday right? Do you? you will want to choose a special day to propose to your loved one right? or choose this special day to have your solemnisation or wedding dinner etc. its a special day of the year for couples. if eating out and buying flowers are too expensive, just get a present (present prices are the same everyday) for your loved ones. you don’t buy presents for your loved ones everyday right? unless it is birthday, anniversary, christmas etc…
