If you didn't get to celebrate Valentine's Day on 14 Feb, you may want to take a cue from this South Korean 'holiday' happening tomorrow.
Every year on 14 Apr, singles in Korea who didn't receive any gifts on "White Valentine's" celebrate Black Valentine's by basically having a treat-yourself day.
Here's how you can follow in their footsteps and throw a self-lovin' party, Korean style:
Take a chance with speed-dating
A huge trend in South Korea, speed-dating and blind dates are a popular way of making new friends and scoping out the market for a potential partner. Black Valentine’s serves as an extra push for singles to head out and meet new folks – there are whole gatherings, mass meet-ups and the works revolving around speed-dating.
The South Korean government even sponsors some of these events, so they are often held on a pretty large scale.
