Single Valentine's [Feb. 14th, 2008|11:18 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick

Like last year, I am again single on Valentine's day.

When I was moving my car out of the garage today onto the street, I briefly heard on the radio some hungover-sounding guy who had just celebrated his birthday last night.
DJ: "And hey, it's Valentine's today."

Hungover guy: "Oh, damn... yeah, you're right. Maaaan."

DJ: "Oh, what, is that a problem? Sorry, you in trouble? Forget to get a gift? Single? Didn't want to think about it?"

Hungover guy: "No, I'm single and I love it. That's not the problem. I just realized though that I'm going to have to be buying all these single girls drinks tonight at bars and stuff."
Hmm... does it really work like that? Single, lonely girls flocking to bars on Valentine's?

Because that's totally my scene, ya know!

go for the ones drinking tequila. Girls do one of two things when drinking tequila--they either 1)cry or 2)take their clothes off. You have a 50-50 chance;)

I was hoping a trip to the gym would (a) identify me as an elgible batchelor and (b) allow me to identify those in the Single category. Alas, it was mostly guys at the gym tonight. Plus, it can be tricky to chat someone up if you're out of breath, perspiring, and slightly stinky. OH WELL.

uhm yeah.

for more info see: http://collegecallgirl.blogspot.com/2008/02/my-box-is-fullof-valentines.html

Honestly, V-day is a free for all and it is so easy to find single girls looking to hook up at bars. Normally, you have to deal with trying to find the girls that are out trying to meet guys, but today, that is most girls.

1. I take the Feynman approach of never buying girls drinks.
2. I am totally up for drinking+talking to random girls in a bar tonight.
3. This girl documented her experience trying to find a valentine's date in SF yesterday: http://www.zannel.com/user.htm?name=karenthe13th

It's funny, I'm 29 and this is the first Valentine's Day that I've been bothered by being single on the day. I wonder if that's a sign of getting old.

Damn! I didn't know that!
Then we (me and my wife) have probably spoiled your day during your visit to russian St.Petersburg.. There were so many single girls in Tinkoff bar waiting for someone to buy them a drink. And we've surrounded you with silly chatting!

No, no... I had so much fun in St. Petersburg. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. It was great.

But maybe next time I should visit this "Tinkoff bar" you speak of? :)
