Alone this Valentine's? It doesn't mean you have to be moping at home in front of the TV, or cursing under your breath whilst bemoaning the lack of eligible guys while you stuff your face with Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.
Here's a list of 5 places where you might meet Mr Right (maybe not in time for this Valentine's Day, but hey it's worth a shot!)
Whether or not you're the exercising type, get off your seat and do some physical activity. It is scientifically proven to make you feel happier. Join one of the running clubs in Singapore - for instance, Team Fatbird! Running groups have been found to motivate and encourage greater participation and accountability in your personal exercise regime. Furthermore, you may even meet Mr Right there!

2. Watch a comedy
Whether its How I Met Your Mother or The Big Bang Theory, indulge in a little comedy to take your mind off wondering who your ex is with now.
If these fail to cheer you up, go Youtube for "VR Man" - and see our first (and hopefully the last) Singaporean TV superhero. Actually, I take that back, I hope they bring back VR Man (yes, VR stands for Virtual Reality). That was the best local comedy ever, if you ask me. And I guess it was a bit of eye-candy for the girls; you gotta admit, James Lye was pretty hot back then :)

Get silly drunk. Hang out with your other single gal pals. Why you're still single will be the last thing on your mind once the other single guys out there get as drunk as you.

4. Stalk FB
If all that positive-energy stuff is not your thing, might as well go the other way. ALL the way. Enter the dark side. Put on your Darth Vader-esque hoodie, lock the door and bring on the hate!
Spying on your ex's FB can be enraging, and very engrossing. Before you've finished looking at all their lovey-dovey photos together and smirking at their disgustingly-sweet shout outs to each other, Valentine's Day would be over! And you can then put that hoodie away until Feb 14 2013.

5. Eat potato chips and ice cream while watching Lady Vengeance on DVD
Empower yourself. Do what you want. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Lays, Pringles, Calbee Hot and Spicy. Go for it. Haagen Dazs, Ben & Jerrys, or even better, Udders D24 durian ice cream. Don't scrimp on the toppings.
The best girl-power movie to watch while you assert your victory over Valentine's day? Lady Vengeance.
