Let's face it no one wants to be alone on Valentine's Day. Even if you are okay with being single, the 14th of February has a funny way of making you feel lonely and sorry for yourself.
But being single on Valentine's Day can also be fun, exciting and full of surprises. We have come up with a survival guide to getting you through Valentine's this year, which doesn't involve a box of tissues, call to your therapist, or breaking of dishes… Just get out
Get out of the house and mingle with other people. Get together with the people who do love you. Throw a party with close friends, dance the night away and forget all about it.
Or put a twist on it — if your ex was less than desirable, then throw a party called 'I'd rather be single than be with my ex'.
Invite a bunch of friends who feel the same way and have a 'Trash your ex-party'. Your friends can bring old resemblances of their ex-mates such as clothing, cards or letters, to be discarded at the manner of your choice at the party. Play games and be sure to play songs such as 'I'm a survivor' and 'What's Love Got to do with it'.
