No need for singles to be sad on the most romantic day of the year.

The fun gets underway at Liam Maguire’s on Valentine’s Day night at 9pm when the first bachelor and three possible bachelorettes girls go first. In the same format as the beloved Dating Game Show, the bachelor asks the three bachelorettes tongue-in-cheek questions and based upon their answers, chooses his mate. Next a chosen Bachelorette takes the stage and chooses from three bachelors in the same format. A third round occurs if time allows and bachelors and bachelorettes are chosen from the audience. Bachelorettes receive a rose a-la 'The Bachelor' and the winning couples get a $75 gift certificate for dinner at Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub for a "date”.

Just so to prove this really works, three years ago reluctant bachelor, Mike Ball, a UNH alum and Falmouth native, picked Naomi Blinick from the three bachelorettes. They went on their awarded “date” and low and behold, they are still together today!

Best of all, dateless singles fear not. Palmer House Inn has created the perfect way to celebrate the “right hand ring” Valentine’s Day! Their Falmouth Singles Valentine’s Day package includes a one night getaway with a $50.00 gift certificate to enjoy the “Dateless Game” at Liam Maguire’s, plus roses, chocolates and a split of champagne waiting for you in your room, plus a right hand ring to honor your single status, starting at $229. Bring a friend for moral support and a room with two beds is just $239.00.

And for the millions of American couples looking for the ultimate date (vs. dateless) night, two of the Falmouth B&Bs are offering Valentine’s Day packages filled with all the extras. Leave the romance planning to the innkeepers in Falmouth, and try one of these Valentine’s Day packages.
