Traditionally Valentine’s Day is for couples, although it can be a day to celebrate family as well by spending it with a parent, grandparent, child or sibling. Valentine’s Day can also be a day when you meet that special someone one by going to a Valentine’s event for singles.

This year the Boston Young Professionals Association (BYPA)  has an event for singles they’ve dubbed Hollywood Nights: A Classy Valentine’s Singles Event. The event takes place in the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel’s Oval Ballroom and its a mix between party and party game. As of this writing there are 35 tickets available for women and 40 tickets available for men. This event runs from 7 – 9 PM on Valentine’s Day.

Then from 9PM to 2AM the partying continues with the BYPA’s Red Carpet Romance Valentine’s Ball where you can dance the night away. This event is included in the price of the Hollywood Nights event ticket, or can be purchased separately.

For a singles party with less structured games there’ s Flirt Fest 2009 taking place at Vinalia and presented by BostonEventGuide.com

Those singles wanting to celebrate their status can do so at the St. Singles Day Party at Upstairs on the Square in Cambridge. Upstairs on the Square has dubbed this as “a day that celebrates the freedoms of singularity and the ability to find mono-happiness without the tacky cards”. This event takes place Friday February 13th from 9PM – 1AM in the Monday Club Bar.

For singles wanting to drown their sorrows in a few drinks they can do so downstairs in Hell at Vox Populi from 6PM to 1AM, where there will be passed appetizers and a specialty cocktail appropriately named “The Broken Heart”. For more information forget their website it’s not there. Instead call 617.424.8300.
