“The National Retail Federation predicts that Americans will spend a total of $19 billion on Valentine’s giving this year. That averages out to $142 per person celebrating the holiday.” Read more at http://time.com/3703157/valentines-day-single-is-better/
But that is for couples! You are single so how much will you spend? Nothing, you say? You are not seeing anyone so why would you have to spend any money on February 14th? I will tell you why. I recommend that you attend an event for singles, which may have a small cost.
This year is the first that I have gotten so many emails about events for singles. This is great. On a day when a lot of singles feel depressed and frustrated about their love lives for not having anyone to share it with, THIS year singles are going to be out having fun, meeting potentials and cutting a rug. (see below for a sample of events)
Here are a few of the events I’ve seen advertised:
Mix, Mingle & Match – Speed Dating in the Art District
Saturday, February 14, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Mount Rainier, MD
Valentine’s Day Virginia Winery Tour
Saturday, February 14, 2015 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Valentine’s Day Poetry Slam
Friday, February 13, 2015 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Ball
Saturday, February 14, 2015 at 8:00 PM – Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 12:00 AM (EST)

The Velvet Rope Affair – An Affair to Remember
Saturday, February 14, 2015 at 9:00 PM – Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 12:00 AM (EST)

And of course my own flirt instructors will be teaching singles how to mingle and flirt with the opposite sex at our COED FLIRT NIGHT for $20 in Chinatown on Friday, Feb. 13. Join them by registering HERE!
Check out Eventbrite and other event sites for events in your area and DO SOMETHING FUN this Valentine’s Day. Spending $40 or $50 should be in your dating budget for this holiday. The Day is about LOVE and celebrating the possibility of romance. It is coming for you….so embrace it!
