Singles don't have to be holed up at home on Friday. You can go out without getting swamped by couples.
There are a number of events aimed at the Valentine's Day Dateless.
Lucha Loco's Anti-Valentine's Day Party
This party promises to be a blast for all singles and lovers of Mexican food.
If you are feeling particularly vengeful, you can take a photo of your ex and attach it to a pinata there for bashing.
With a bunch of fun games designed to get you mingling, and with a number of DJs on-site, this is the funkiest way to get through a night of enforced romance.
When: Friday, 9pm
Where: Lucha Loco, 15 Duxton Hill, Tanjong Pagar
How much: Free. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Valentine Vendetta 2014
Billed as Singapore's No. 1 Valentine's Day singles party, this is the fourth Vendetta.
A combination of games and free shots should take the pressure off meeting new people.
If you're too shy, fill in some information and there will be "cupids" available to introduce you to your type.
There are a lot of prizes on offer. Best kiss wins a pair of diamond earrings.
When: Friday, 7pm
Where: New Asia, 71-72/F Equinox Complex, Swissotel The Stamford, 2 Stamford Road
How much: From $25 for online pre-sale to $45 for men at the door; tickets and bottle packages also available online at www.vday.sg
This Dream Date
If you are the sit-and-talk type, this combines Mediterranean food and mingling.
There's even a rotation programme to see that you talk to everyone and make new friends. Or at least some new friends to add to your Facebook.
When: Friday, 7pm to 9.30pm
Where: Medzs, Orchard Central #B2-01
How much: $15. Go to vivaone.com.sg for more information.
