Valentine's Day

5 of the oddest things you can actually do this Valentine's Day

Who said romance was dead?

WHETHER YOU ARE loved up or flying solo, deciding what to do on Valentine’s Day is a pain.

For couples there’s the annual ‘will we go out for it?’ dilemma, while singles face the prospect of being labelled bitter no matter what they do.

If you go out to ‘celebrate being single with the girls’ you’re bitter. If you sit at home you’re bitter.

And if you complain about being labelled bitter, you’re most definitely bitter.

All is not lost though: There are a variety of alternatives out there for those who want to celebrate the day their own way.

 … enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly, get to know a furry friend in the Cat Cuddle Booths (until 7.30pm) and potentially meet the cat-ch you’ve always dreamed of.

There’s only one problem though:


Perhaps consider seeking love in the supermarket?

Ok so this is technically something you’ll need to do before the day itself but it’s a good way to sort yourself out with a date, wha?
