But how is one to spend this 'lovey-dovey' day, without a valentine to cuddle up with at night?The best way to beat this "holiday" is to keep one constantly busy. By staying busy, no matter if its by engulfing one in homework or by just hanging out with friends, the purpose is to keep the mind off of the whole couple aspect. Hanging out with friends is one of the best remedies to beat the loneliness Valentine's Day brings along. Attending a movie, going on a road trip, babysitting are just a few activities most single students partake in during these lonely times. If being busy is not your cup of tea, there are other ways to keep occupied during this lovely holiday. Such as, making other couples miserable, one way would be by throwing water balloons at couples passing by. Naturally, it is not right, but it can be extremely funny to watch their day go down the drain. Hopefully they won't be a bad sport about the whole incident, but if not just be prepared to run.
