Just because you are single doesn't mean you should be left out of Valentine's Day - instead - throw a Valentine's Day party for yourself and all of your single friends, and, ask each one of them to bring at least one other single friend with them.
Keep people circulating by having a buffet instead of a sit-down dinner. Menu items could include:
- Crab Cakes
- Shrimp Cocktail
- Brie en Croute
- Spicy Cocktail Meatballs
- Baked Ziti or Pasta in Alfredo Sauce
- Sliced Tenderlion of Beef
- Roast Turkey Breast
- Chocolate Cake
- White Chocolate Mousse
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
Besides having guests circulating and mingling, you could offer Karaoke with all romantic songs or even set up a speed dating game to help break the ice.

Keep it simple - use reds, pinks and whites and you won't go wrong. You can keep as simple as a red or pink tablecloth to going all out with Valentine's Day decorations throughout your house or apartment.
And, who knows, you might just meet your Mr. or Ms. Right at your own Valentine's Day party. Have fun and enjoy yourself!
