Is Valentine's Day a good time for singles to meet someone?

Any ideas? Where and how?

  • Horrible day to find someone in my opinion. Valentine's Day is the day that really test the will of unhappily single people. Sitting around knowing that a good portion of the world is out loving each other while you're alone can push a lot of people into sadness. So when an option comes along people desperately jump on it. And desperation usually leads to impaired thinking and unhealthy over attachment. I always disappear on Valentine's Day and wait about a week or two before trying anything. Although Valentine's Day is a holiday it isn't magic. People aren't magically going to bond just because of what day it is. But Valentine's Day does present that illusion. A lot of couples are out there struggling but are putting on loving masks just for this day. Good relationships take intimacy, commitment, and passion. And changing what day of the year it is isn't going to change that. I'd advise avoiding clubs, bars, and speed dating places (where everyone will be desperately lunging at unhealthy targets because they're lonely and single on Valentine's day) and sticking strictly to places that cater towards your own specific passions about life.

  • Honestly I'm a bit skeptical. Lots of people feel lonely on V-day so they grab on to the first best thing they can find. And a few days later, they realize they were just acting out on their loneliness and picked the wrong person. Alternatively, a lot of people (mostly men) know just how lonely a lot of people (mostly women) might be. So they use that to their advantage to fuck around and get as much sex as possible. And then just dump the girls.
    So I dunno. I'd rather pick a more normal day when the tension (and expectations) aren't so high.

  • I only see it as an opportunity for guys. Since a lot of single chicks have their lonely girls night out.

    And guys on the prowl are just looking to get laid

  • Valentine's Day is a good day to get laid, so many women desperate not to be alone on that day and will hook up with anyone that shows them attention.

    It is not a good day, to try to meet someone and try to have a long term relationship with.

    I do not play the Valentine game, if you are in a committed relationship and you are into your partner. Every day should be Valentine's Day, and you do not need some commercially sponsored day to do something nice or special for the person you are supposed to be in love with.

    Why is it that bunch of roses that cost $12, 364 days of the year on a certain day the same roses cost $80. Valentine's Day is not about love, it is about businesses exploiting emotions.

  • in my town a cool old mansion holds an event called Hearts and Hops. it's a beer tasting. I know a lot of couples but also lots of singles w/ their friends go. I think events like that may be good places to meet singles.

  • Where do you meet at a Valentines day party? If that's the case then yes but I have not seen those before for singles

  • For hooking up yes. But for a solid dating relationship no. There's an air of desperation on Valentine's day. Getting with someone when you are desperate leads to accepting things you normally wouldn't and overlooking things because you have this intense need.

  • It's as good a day as any if you ask me. As to where and how? I wouldn't know. Personally, I'm a coffeehouse/24-hour pancake joint type of guy.

  • How do you know someone's single on Valentine's Day?

    They'll tell you.

    It's kind of like Spot the Vegan.

    But I think that V-Day adds too much pressure. Like... you're both single. But V-Day implies excess romance and that's not always good for first dates, ya know?

  • I would think it would be as good a day to meet someone as any other day. However, I find with Valentines day, sometimes people can be very skittish. They are afraid of things meaning more than they should, especially at the early stages.

    But maybe that's just been my experience.

    There's clubs and bars that have speed dating events on that day. If you search in your area, you'll find plenty of places.

  • Actually I do not think so. I think that if you are single on Valentine's day then you should embrace it and spend it with people who already love you. Family members, friends, and even pets. After the holiday is over, feel free to go out looking for someone but on Valentine's day our expectations are raised to an unnatural level so anyone we meet will be put to some weird subconscious test. Do yourself a favor and just don't...

    • And another thing, you may not realize it but you may lower your standards on that day in particular due to your want for love.

  • I don't why not. I mean there's probably like a 50/50 chance that you will. If there are any social gatherings/family events/weddings/clubs/shows/etc. that you could go to, it would probably increase your chances. If not then maybe you could go to a few coffee shops lol. Just don't try the clubs or a bar. I don't think that would be a best bet. You're more likely to meet a decent guy at family oriented places.

  • Yes it can be, probably at some events at bars or resturants wher they have these "valentines day" night they usually have some discount for ladies too. You can have fun and probably meet a single guy, and if you don't you get to have some fun with your single girlfriends or just make friends with others single guys, who might have a friend what you like.
