Tip no. 1: Go out
Ok so maybe you feel like burying yourself under a blanket with a bottle of wine and a box (or two) of chocolates, watching Bridget Jones on repeat.
But as Doug points out, Valentine's Day is the perfect night for a singleton to go out because it's the one day of the year when you can guarantee that the majority of people who are out are single.
A bar of single people? That's surely enough incentive to get those high heels on.
"The trick is to do something you'd like to do on any other day: go out dancing with the girls, go to a bar you like or spend the evening in a fun restaurant," says Doug. "Just have in the back of your mind that if you come across a guy you like, there's a great chance he's single."
