DO send valentines the lazy way by sending a sassy e-card to whomever you adore.
DON’T assume that the holiday justifies tacky heart accessories that NEVER look cool on anyone over the age of six.
DO go out with a gal pal for margaritas if a date doesn’t pan out.
DON’T go out with the “nice dude” you totally aren’t into just for the hell of it. (Unless you want non-stop rambly phone messages, whiny emo ballad mix CDs you never asked for, and that creepy kind of nervous habit characteristic of female characters in Lifetime movies who peek around door frames to assure dude isn’t lurking around the corner with a bouquet of her favorite flowers.) The bottom line: if you try and make it into something it’s not, you’ll have a story to contribute to this fine work of chick lit.
DO send a mass text. Apparently tomorrow will be a record breaking day for mobile messaging. SRSLY! And by mass text, I’m assuming you already know to take your douchey ex out of the list of recipients.
DON’T sit through a date with a text-er. LAME.
