How to Survive Valentine's Day from yourtango.com
Whether you're single or taken, here's woman-to-woman advice for getting through the most-hyped holiday of the year:
Since he can't read your mind, let your partner know exactly what gift would make your heart sing. Just send him a website link. You both win: You'll be thrilled and he gets the applause.
Cook for him. Preparing a special meal is like foreplay, and feeding someone is an act of love. Even better, cook together.
If you're single, watch a movie like Dirty Dancing or Sleepless in
Buy your own chocolate! But not from the drugstore — go someplace decadent like Godiva and spend $30 on a box of the good stuff. It's so luxe to treat yourself.
Drink a really good bottle of pink champagne. As a single woman, it will help make all those hand-holding couples appear almost as cute as they think they are. If you're hitched, it will help you forget that your husband canceled your dinner plans to work late.
Make someone's day by sending an anonymous Valentine. Mail it to a friend, cousin, or neighbor — anyone who could use a little love, which is most everyone!
15 Ways To Avoid Valentine’s Day from the frisky.com
If you are a single on Valentine’s Day—you basically have two options. You can embrace the day and make it your own. Or you can boycott. If you choose the latter, it might not be as hard as you think.
1.It’s winter, so take the opportunity to hibernate. Stay home alone all day and night on Valentine’s Day.
2.Set your computer and phone date to February 15, as if the big day never even happened. If you have a page-a-day calendar, flip that sucker forward too.
3.Steer clear of Hallmarks and the chocolate heart filled aisles at the drug store.
4.Go to see a slasher movie. Trust, this is not the movie selection couples will be making.
5.Do your taxes. Hey, you need to file them sometime.
6.Don’t email back when friends ask you what you are up to for V-Day. Ignore, ignore, ignore.
7.Or let your friends in on the game and make a pact not to discuss the holiday at hand.
8.Do not go out to dinner, in the name of all things holy. If you do want to go out, think fast food or buffets—places couples will not be.
9.Pick another holiday to celebrate, like your half-birthday or something an throw an unrelated party that evening.
10.Don’t watch TV, unless it is shows you have already DVR'd from the week before. In other words, not the Valentine’s Day episodes.
11.Spend the day/night with someone who is too old or too young to care what day it is, like your infirm grandma or your nieces and nephews.
12.Avoid Facebook. Or unfriend everyone in a relationship. Although that might be extreme.
13.Go to the gym. Hey, it’ll be couple free and you won’t have to wait for the treadmill.
14.On February 13th, do a symbolic burning of Valentine’s paraphernalia. Consider it a cleansing.
15.Make the day into a historical reenactment of 300 A.D., before the holiday existed
