It should come as no surprise that I hate Valentine’s Day. Â And no, it’s not because i’m single. Â Because let’s face it, the relationship I have with my TIVO is one of the healthiest ones I’ve seen in a long time.
No, what I hate about Valentines day is how people in relationships think it is actually romantic. Â Tell me, how is sitting in a full restaurant with dozens of other couples ordering the same food and talking about the same thing romantic? Â Romance is supposed to be spontaneous and unexpected, going out on Valentines is no different than going to the dentist. Â It’s a regular check up that you should be doing anyway.
But I digress.
If you are in Calgary tonight there is a really cool event going on at the Mile One club. Â It’s hosted by Meet Market and it is the anti-valentines day party for singles. Â And it isn’t for the kinda singles that try to find errors in soduko puzzles or learn a language only spoken on Star Trek, no these events are always attended by cool singles that are just looking to meet new people and lord knows Calgary has A Â LOT of singles! Â At last count there were only about 28 tickets left so you know it’s actually going to be fun!
