10 Things To Do If You're Single On Valentine's Day In Montreal

Because life is about so much more than romance
10 Things To Do If You're Single On Valentine's Day In Montreal

Let's not mince words here: Valentine's Day has a lot of people feeling like they're going to be #foreveralone. The romance in the air is so oppressively over-the-top that sometimes you just want to run away into la campagne rurale just to escape everyone.

Instead of taking such drastic measures, consider instead keeping yourself busy with some fun activities. Whether you want to dance the night away, meet other people who are just as fed up with this commercial holiday as you are, or eat your heart out, I've got the perfect event for you.
