With Valentine's approaching, I've seen some Internet advice that Valentine's day should NOT be the first date that you ask your crush out.
One is that there's too much pressure on that day to perform and meet expectations.
Two is that it is hard to find seats at the restaurant, movie or anywhere else. Or even the secret quiet place by the park you thought was secret is now peppered with couples everywhere.
Three is that it is inappropriate to be so romantic to someone you barely know. There is this disconnect, who is this person and why is he being so intimate?
Four is that if the relationship ever works out, your anniversary is now on Valentine's. Which is kind of being lazy since you only celebrate it once. If it was on any other day you'd have 2 special days for each other instead.
Do you think that for those who have yet to reach any official status or still complete strangers, Valentine's day should either be avoided or celebrated casually as an opportunity for a simple dinner out under the guise as friends or fellow singles?

First of all, you shouldn't have a crush. You should have asked her out like months ago probably.
General advice for being single on valentines: do not ask someone on a first date for valentines. Its too loaded.
Instead have an anti-valentines day party for singles. I foresee drunken making out.1
