I have been single for the last ten Valentine’s Days. Yes you read that right: T-E-N. So I’ve become quite the pro when it comes to navigating the day known to couples as ‘best day of the year’ and to singles, the day they want to curl up in a ball and die.

Those in a loved-up relationship will know the thrill of a big bunch of roses arriving at their work desk. To be paraded around the office as everyone comments “oh you lucky thing” while quietly filling their coffee cups up with hard liquor.

1. Singles that play together stay together

Gather your fellow single comrades and organize to be together. If you’re anything like me you will like having something fun to look forward to, so start organizing early.

2. Avoid restaurants at all costs

Let’s let the couples have their fancy reservations this year and praise the lords for Uber eats. Order up enough food to feed a small army and most importantly …
