It’s that time of year again. Hearts seem to be on steroids, the color red seems to exist in every direction, and couples seem to be doubling in number by the second.
Well, that is of course if you are one of the single folks in the world at this point in time, it feels as though someone invented this holiday in order to make everyone aware of singleness.
On the contrary, this time of year is another excuse to eat lots of calories, (also known as chocolate) get roses, and spend a nice night out on the town with the one you love most.
On the bright side of things, this Valentine’s Day will be neither dreadful nor routine for any of you.
Due to the economic crisis, which includes an astounding loss of jobs, budget cuts, etc. there are plenty of way to make this holiday the best it can be, single or not.

Status: In a Relationship
San Diego’s Balboa Park has plenty of exciting events that take place daily, and because of the nature of students’ empty wallets, it is assuring to know that many of the events that Balboa Park holds are free.
So get on out there and save money while having a fun night.
Skip out on the cliché’ dinner and movie night and do something for Valentines days that you’ll remember years down the road.
Status: Single
Ladies, grab all your friends and have a singles mixer.
Better yet, let this be a ‘ladies only’ night on the town.
Now doesn’t that sound much better than sitting at home on Myspace all night long? Corvette Diner, located in Hillcrest gives you a fun environment and is very affordable in pricing.
Want to skip out on watching all the annoying couples hand feed one another in public? Rent a movie and stay in all night with all your friends. Whoever said being single was a bad thing anyways?
