For thousands of years, across all cultures, living as a family unit has been the building block of society. In the past, food, shelter and safety depended on interconnectedness. Exile was considered the most severe form of punishment, second only to death. As our culture has become increasingly individualistic, living alone has become a desirable luxury for singletons.

SINGLES don't have to be holed up at home on Friday. You can go out without getting swamped by couples.

There are a number of events aimed at the Valentine's Day Dateless.

Lucha Loco's Anti-Valentine's Day Party
This party promises to be a blast for all singles and lovers of Mexican food.
If you are feeling particularly vengeful, you can take a photo of your ex and attach it to a pinata there for bashing.
With a bunch of fun games designed to get you mingling, and with a number of DJs on-site, this is the funkiest way to get through a night of enforced romance.
When: Friday, 9pm
Where: Lucha Loco, 15 Duxton Hill, Tanjong Pagar
How much: Free. For more information, contact info@luchaloco.com

Valentine Vendetta 2014
Billed as Singapore's No. 1 Valentine's Day singles party, this is the fourth Vendetta.
A combination of games and free shots should take the pressure off meeting new people.
If you're too shy, fill in some information and there will be "cupids" available to introduce you to your type.
There are a lot of prizes on offer. Best kiss wins a pair of diamond earrings.
When: Friday, 7pm
Where: New Asia, 71-72/F Equinox Complex, Swissotel The Stamford, 2 Stamford Road
How much: From $25 for online pre-sale to $45 for men at the door; tickets and bottle packages also available online at www.vday.sg

Hopefully the dream comes true. It is less painful this way.

Where: Medzs, Orchard Central #B2-01

Talk to someone and make new friends. Console one another, being in the same boat. It is a harsh world in the world of love.

No. 1 Valentine's Day singles party, no gifts necessary. It is already painful enough because there is no comfort for you.

Are You The One?

STOCK: Anastasia posing elegantly on a rock (Sitting)
PHOTO: Different environment has its own unique beauty although with the same sad heart. Try as you may, being the only one of its kind, unlike anything else, but the lingering thoughts cannot passed away completely. You are still unwanted.

Apparently very graceful outside but deep in the heart is heavy rainfall. Elegance has no value when you are been told that nobody wants you, especially from the one whom you thought could be your companion for the rest of your life.
