Place To Avoid: Resorts To a Tropical Destination

Place To Avoid: Candlelit Restaurants
Reason: If your at a romantic restaurant alone or with a friend, it’s not an ideal place to be because it’s such an intimate setting from the darkness of the room and the candles being lit. And for some couple it’s the perfect place to get engaged.
Where To Go: If you are single you should go somewhere fun that has bright lighting and loud entertainment such as; Dave & Busters, a nightclub or bar to place you in an upbeat vibe.
Place To Avoid: Hallmark
Reason: Around this time of year, Hallmark is selling rows of mushy Valentine’s Day cards, teddy bears, boxes of chocolates and whatever else they can think of that they can sell of the lover’s holidays.
