Imagine being single…

10. Play video games

One of the best ways to escape from the reality of being single.

9. Watch a movie while crying into a tub of ice cream

Bonus points if the protagonist of the film is also watching a movie while crying into a tub of ice cream.

8. Think about your dream college

Love is temporary, but college admission is forever.

7. Look for romantic couples in the park to see how the other half lives

There’s bound to be a few of them. Maybe check the benches.

6. Ask your friend out

We’ll just go out as “friends.” No one will think we’re dating.

5. Cancel Valentine’s Day on change.org

I mean at least a third of the population that would sign that petition. 

4. Use your imagination

If you’re handy enough, your imaginary significant other may almost become real. 

3. Tell your friends you’re in a long-distance relationship

That’s why you’ve never seen them before. They definitely exist, though.

2. Stalk the person you like on social media

Don’t worry, most people do this on the daily anyway.

1. Read The Saratoga Falcon Life Section

In case you skipped directly to the backpage, the double page is Valentine’s Day themed.
