Don’t let being single get you down this Valentine’s Day. Think of it this way – you don’t have to drop a ton of cash on flowers, chocolates, or dinner. Not only that, there are tons of ways to celebrate your singlehood at events all over the city. Here are some of our favorites.
Anti-Valentine Singles Party
(Feb 9) If you’re single and ready to mingle, head to the Anti-Valentine’s Singles Party. More than 400 singles are expected to attend this fun event at The Ainsworth, and last year’s event sold out with a huge waiting list. DJ Easy Calderon will spin while you enjoy complimentary appetizers and fun icebreakers with prizes.
NYC’s Biggest Speed Dating Event
(Feb 9) If you’re in your 20s or 30s and ready to find that special someone, then check out NYC’s Biggest Speed Dating Event. 50 men and 50 women will each go on a three-minute mini-date. You’ll keep track of whom you like on a “match card.” If the same person chooses you on their match card, the party organizers will send you each other’s contact info.
Valentine’s Self Love Event
(Feb 9) There’s no better way to express love for yourself than a day of mind/body healing. You can get just that at the Valentine’s Self Love Event hosted by the Manhattan Healing Center.

(Feb 10 & 13) Another great event that focuses on your health is the Healthy Loving Heart at Remedies Herb Shop in Brooklyn.

(Feb 13) Gather up your gal pals and head to Grey Lady NYC for their Galentine’s Day Drunk Yoga experience. Gear up for class with a 15-minute happy hour, enjoy a glass of wine during class, and then “wine-down” for another 30-minutes after your workout.
