Single Girls Want A Little Romance And A Hug; Single Guys Want Sex
In fact, they should rejoice, for Valentine’s Day is right up there with the Wednesday before Thanksgiving as one of the top non-holiday party nights of the year. It’s a night to celebrate being single, to be independent with no significant other to worry about (or tell you what to do), to be accountable only to yourself.
Bars have Valentine’s Day specials – usually offering shots with names like the Heart Stabber or the Angry Girlfriend – and this year could be one of the biggest ever because Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday, which in many places means Taco Tuesday, and that means specials on cerzezas and margaritas.
Instead of sitting in a fancy restaurant over soft light and softer conversation, single people are up dancing and laughing and carrying on at the bar. They are out with friends or really want to be meeting new friends. Perhaps, even, a new girlfriend or boyfriend. Or just out for a one night stand.
Valentine’s Day is, for guys, a New Year’s Eve type of potential event.
This is an especially ripe time for guys because girls tend to be emotional on Valentine’s Day if they don’t have a date. They want someone to hug and hold them, so they are likely to release their standards like a water skier does the ski rope. Guys, of course, will gladly spare the emotions of not having a date as long as they can have sex.
Of course, guys don’t really need Valentine’s Day to feel that way.
