If the holiday, often regarded as “Singles Awareness Day,” has left you feeling S.A.D. for yourself here are some ways to secure a last minute Valentine or rejoice in your singlehood this year.
It’s not too late! If you want to get a date fast…
Grab an App – Mobile dating (meaning using dating apps/sites on your phone) was up 40% in 2015. The biggest difference between apps and traditional sites is that the speed is faster. Time to set up a profile is shorter, communication happens faster, you get offline more quickly. Using an app like Happn allows you to connect with people in your immediate area and make a quicker connection offline.
Go to a Meet Up or Mixer – Instead of moping about your singlehood, let it propel you towards saying yes to things you’d otherwise pass up – like a Valentine’s Day singles event. Use my top flirting tips like eye contact, casual touch, and smiling to make a connection once you’re there.
If you’re going to be spending Valentine’s Day single take comfort in:
- Saving Your Money
Restaurants all double their prices on Valentine’s Day knowing that poor romantics will pay the price. Rejoice in the fact that the money you’ll save on February 14th could be enough for two dates down the road.
- Watching Your Waistline
The #1 New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. However, by this time of the year, it’s also one of the most broken resolutions. Without the pressure to eat the Valentine’s Day candies and chocolates, you can stick to your plan, save your waistline and be beach ready by Spring.
- Connecting With Friends
The most memorable Valentine’s Days I spent single were enjoyed in the company of good friends. Get a group of singles together if you’re not celebrating with a date this weekend and celebrate your friendship and yourselves. Celebrate this Galentine’s Day by seeing the new movie How to Be Single – opening today!
