What do you call singles dating on Valentine's Day?

Roses, heart-shaped chocolates and mushy romantic songs airing over the radio – it’s Valentine’s Day again and as the saying goes, love is in the air. Couples will book fancy restaurants for dinner, buy each other gifts and send dedications over the radio, while on the streets there will be an abundance of roses on sale to celebrate ‘love season’.

Forget about the romantic dinners, Valentine's Day is not only for couples, friends too, can get together on Valentine’s Day to celebrate their friendship. I think there was no reason that single people shouldn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day just because they weren’t attached.

My friends and I spending the romantic night of Valentine at Mcdonald. We just order a drink for each of us and we sembang until 3am. A bunch of us talking our 18 years old stories, you know, our ups and downs, left to right. Some may say it’s pathetic and sad that single people gang up together on the most romantic day of the year, but with my secondary schoolmates, our days was always a blast, all of us goes home happy. Cheers, glad we're still single. We very enjoy our life now. We can do whatever we want. We don't need to think what's the plan for Valentines. Some of our friend that were couple, headache when it comes to Valentines, anniversary, or birthday, they have to think to buy present or something else. They have to make everything different each year and every year. We, the singles, don't need to that. Do we have to do that?

So whether you’re single, in a relationship, in denial or ‘it’s complicated’, remember that Valentine’s Day is for everyone. Would you want to miss out on the whole mood of this once-a-year celebration?
