Valentine’s Day solo can be a bit of a minefield. Some choose to celebrate their friends with a Parks & Rec-esque Galentine's Day. Some choose to throw an anti-Valentine’s-Day party, and rock out with their anti-hearts-and-flowers friends.

It could be the perfect set up with the guy (or gal) of their dreams. It could be an awful three hours listening to your mom’s college roommate’s son, Kevin, talk about how fast his new car goes.
