Going Out On Couples Night Is The Quickest Way To Mend a Broken Heart
In fact, it’s more like the Wednesday before Thanksgiving in that it’s an “unofficial” party day, one created by people who are eager to go out because, like a mountain ready to be ascended, it’s there.
Valentine’s Day for those without a valentine can be a rough time, but it can also be a party time. And for singles, it’s a great party time. On the heels of the Super Bowl, it’s one of the first big party events of the year.
Valentine’s Day is great for singles because the only other people out that night are, well, singles. There’s no having to worry about that girl – or girls – sitting alone at the bar or booth is simply waiting for some damned boyfriend to emerge from the bathroom.
There’s no fear of a shadow coming over the shoulder followed by a “she’s with me” comment. Or for girls, of having a jealous girlfriend ask “who is this you’re talking to now!?”
Anyone who is a couple is out as a couple on this night.
Valentine’s Day is great for singles for another reason: The bars are full of people who just broke up with someone. It could have been coming for some time and, much like Christmas, one (or both) decided it was best to break up before spending money on someone who has no long-term prospects. They are out celebrating.
And there are also quite a number of people who are out because they just got ditched. These are the most venerable to new – read, quick – romances and are out to drown their sorrows. Quite often, these people are out with a group of friends trying to cheer them up, and they are ripe to talk with and meet new people.
Valentine’s Day 2016 is on a Sunday. It’s right after a Saturday night – talk about a great pickup line opportunity!
Elsewhere, don’t sweat it if you’re single. Because other singles will be out that night, as well.
