5. You Don't Have to Be on the Scene
There's nothing like hitting the club on Valentine's Day. The place is wall-to-wall with a kind of thirst usually reserved for Kim Kardashian's Instagram. Rampant "independence" and desperate loneliness create a rich environment that effortlessly trumps better judgement. If you're starting the night single, it probably won't end that way. And if you're starting the night STD-free, you definitely won't leave that way.
Stay home, and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you're not that guy at the club creeping chicks out.
