1. It’s all about you – Fall in love yourself on Valentine’s Day! Realize that you are phenomenal on your own, and reward yourself for it. Book a spa day, plan a vacation with friends - pamper yourself! 2. Get out of the house – The worst way to spend Valentine’s Day single is home on your couch watching The Notebook. Head out with your single friends and do something fun and active like night skiing, ping pong, or yoga class. 3. Stay positive – you may find yourself muttering snarky quips about your attached friends under your breath, but lets try and stay positive. Maybe stay off Facebook today... 4. Be proactive – it’s never too soon to work on finding a date for next year! Make a resolution to open yourself up to meeting people, whether it be online or offline. Become a participator, join a club or a group that interests you. 5. Play FlipMe - anti–Valentine's Day thoughts are thrown of out of the window when you gather with your single gal pals and hit the town equipped with a savvy way to flirt! Simply stock up on sexy, sweet and sassy-statement cards, find a prospective mate and FLIP them as an invitation to meet online.

So many expectations, so few fulfilled…

happy-early-someone-already-valentines-day-ecard-someecards With Valentine's Day less than a week away we have been fielding tons of questions on what to expect from the guy in your life on the "big day". Frankly, while we all love a good holiday that guilts the loved ones in our lives to shower us with gifts and sweet nothings, we'd like to provide a little perspective. 99% of guys don't really care about Valentine's Day. Actually, that number might actually be a little light. It's more likely that 99.99% of guys don't care about Valentine's Day. The only reason they might pretend to care is to not make you mad make you happy.  The key to this holiday is to keep your expectations low. If you are expecting to be swept off your feet, and get a card, its probably going to piss you off. If you are expecting a card, and get a dinner its a win. Expect Nothing + Get Something = Be Satisfied. We'd prefer to spend Valentine's Day focusing on what the people we are dating do the rest of the 364 days. Do they call? Do they make plans? Do they make you feel good? These are the things that will last a lot longer than those flowers dying in the vase on your counter. So give your guy a break if he doesn't rent a private jet to take you to dinner in Paris on V-Day.
