February 14th, can be the most depressing day of the year for many of us, the day that sickens singles to their stomach. People that aren't in relationships get singled out from the rest of the world and have their hearts cut into pieces from the love in the air. Single Awareness Day should be celebrated just as enthusiastically as Valentine's Day - after all, the two facetious holidays are during the same twenty-four hour period.
Yes, there are many events organized for the love birds. But thankfully, we live in the best city ever and there are some pretty cool Anti-Valentine's day parties in Toronto this weekend.
Don't sit at home and gobble down a block of chocolate, go out and have some fun! There are plenty of things to do, for all the single people in Toronto and this list we put together proves it:
1.Subspace Anti- Valentines Ball @ The Opera House // 735 Queen St. E
