It is Valentine’s Day, and there are many things for couples to do, as those of you who are single already know. But, those looking for love have some good choices too. Patch put together a list of things going on around the community that is geared just for those of you who are flying solo.
So, this Valentine’s Day, rather than stay at home and watch DVD’s of love story after love story and eat the chocolates you bought yourself on the way home, get out and mingle with other singles in the community. You just may feel the sweet sting of Cupid’s arrow and make a love connection with Mr. or Mrs. Right.
