NO DATE THIS VALENTINE'S? DOs & DONTs!

Let's admit it! Not everyone has a someone special to be with this Valentine's, and by special, I mean the "lover" type, because I'm pretty sure people would comment that FAMILY & FRIENDS are special too, and I strongly agree with that, but the thing is, I'm referring to the whole boyfriend-girlfriend thing.


The 2012 Official / Updated Midlifebachelor.com List of:
What TO DO on Valentine's Day When You Do Not Have a Date

Drink with your buddies at their house and talk about how you don't really need a relationship right now.
Of course, if you are the only one of your friends without a date or relationship, then you'll have to keep reading.

Go to the gym.
Nothing is better for this kind of stress than working out. You should be going to the gym and working out regardless.

Watch TV alone.
Sure - you can always watch TV alone at home, but this way no one else knows you don't have a date!

Join an online dating service.
There are several outstanding online dating services out there - I am sure you'll find the right one. You might take a look at our Online Dating Discounts page so that you can at least save yourself some money!

Spend time with your family.
You should be spending time with your family regardless, but this is an especially great day to do it - if you don't have a date.

Throw a party for others who are dateless.
Having a "no couples allowed" party (also known as a "Loser's Party") might be fun. Or maybe not.

Do whatever you would normally do any other day.
In other words, you can simply ignore the day!

Recognize that marriage is the number one cause of divorce.
If you are not married, and don't even have a date - then you certainly don't have to worry about a divorce. And that's a great thing.

Recognize that by not having a girlfriend - that everyplace you go by yourself is HALF OFF the price!
Since you are dateless, you are only paying for yourself ... and that is at least fifty percent cheaper than if you had a date. You can even choose to go NOWHERE and spend NOTHING, if you wish! And you won't wind up in the doghouse for being cheap either!

What NOT to Do on Valentine’s Day when you don’t have a date

Do not call or email an ex to see how she's doing.
Your ex doesn't care about you, and she's probably busy doing someone else. Sorry!

Do not go out to dinner alone on Valentine's Day!
If you go out to dinner on V-day, all you will see is happy couples, and you may want to throw rocks at them! If you have to go out to eat, then get fast food via the drive-through.

Do not go out on a first date with someone new on Valentine's Day.
I did this once years ago, and wow was that ever stupid - as it puts a lot of pressure on both parties to make the date into something it isn't.

Do not say anything negative to others you encounter during the day who have received flowers and/or gifts for Valentine's Day.
If you do, then they may think you are a LOSER with no date! ha ha ;o)

Do not let your neighbors see you washing your car, or gardening, or tooling around outside in the early evening on Valentine's Day.
Otherwise they may think you are a LOSER with no damn date!

Do not intentionally harm yourself if you are dateless on V-day!
Sure - you don't have date this year, but things will get better in the future, and you will eventually find yourself imprisoned in another relationship (ha ha) ... so look forward to that time, and think about how much money you saved by not having a girlfriend this year!
