If you're single, this time of year is absolutely depressing. It's cold, everywhere you go there are heart-shaped...EVERYTHINGS, and the next time you see a happy couple kissing in public, you might just spit on them.

If you're dreading this upcoming Tuesday, fear not. Valentine's Day does not exist for you. It is Single Persons Awareness Day, and here are some suggestions for how you can celebrate.

    Be Angry


    This one is a dangerous and slippery slope. The basic premise is, you stay home, blast Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill album, drink some wine, and curse anyone who is happily coupled off. It may or may not involve burning artifacts from your previous relationships. It's best to keep a pint of ice cream and your best friend at the ready for when the anger turns into bawling (or a fire extinguisher for when you spill the wine in the fire...).

    Have A Girls' Night Out


    Calling all of Beyonce's Single Ladies...this is your moment. Grab all your single gals, get dressed up, and hit the club. Yes, it's a Tuesday, and yes you will regret it the next day, but it's better than being that weird girl crying at home to Alanis Morrissette (not that there's anything wrong with that)...If I may recommend Bar A's Beat the Clock night? There won't be any couples there and you'll actually be able to get to the bar for those cheap drinks. Just a warning though, the clock WILL win.

    Pamper Yourself

    Indulge. You are fabulous and you should treat yourself fabulously. Hit the spa, book yourself a massage, a pedicure, maybe even a facial...go to a good place where you can really relax and enjoy it.

    Host A Singles' Party

    This one will take some effort. Round up every fellow single you can think of, and tell all of them to round up all the singles THEY know, and host a big party. Only singles are allowed -- no couples, I don't care how much anyone claims to like them because "No, REALLY, they aren't couple-y!!". You can even make it a themed party if you want, but this is not only a great way to spend the night, you never know who you'll meet!

    Find Puppy Love


    Head over to an animal shelter like the Monmouth County SPCA, and volunteer as a dogwalker, or just spend some time playing with the animals. Who could be upset when you're playing with a puppy?? Look at the face! Oh for cryin' out loud...
