For many people, the words ‘Valentines Day’ send shivers down their spine. Thinking back to when they were in primary school, as a snotty pig-tailed child, who the boys wouldn’t chase in a game of kiss chase, and then realise, things haven’t really changed. Therefore it’s easy to look at this day of sickening love as a time to get the drinks in and party. Solo. Though there are plenty of Valentine's Day Parties out there, Anti-valentines day is all the rage in 2013, so look through our recommended single valentines events in London, from club nights to singles mixers, we have a little something for every Manchester singleton.
