10 options for Valentine's Day in Toronto if you're single

Flying solo on Valentine's Day in Toronto isn't a tragedy but if you'd rather avoid all the swooning couples and jam-packed restaurants, it's nice to find like-minded company. Whether you're looking to enjoy a dinner free of saccharine spectacles or aiming to soothe your lonely hearty with booze and loud music, this list offers options where singles like you can unite.

Here are 10 options for Valentine's Day 2015 in Toronto if you're single.

DINE AT AN ANTI-VALENTINE'S DAY RESTAURANT

1. The Bedford Academy and Bar Wellington invite the unattached to enjoy their annual anti-Valentine's Day menus featuring dishes like impaled heart-shaped ravioli.

2. The FU V-Day menu at The County General features three courses for $45, cheekily dubbed; the first date, intercourse, and the breakup.

3. Flying solo? La Carnita on College Street is hosting singles night with Mexican street eats and cheap cans of Labatt Crystal.

GET HAPPINESS DELIVERED

4. Sullivan & Bleeker bakery is happy to deliver to your party of one (unless Netflix counts as a +1) by offering free deliveries for any order of $40 or more.

MIX IT UP WITH OTHER SINGLES

5. Have you been looking for love in all the wrong places? Consider hitting four venues in one night. Purchase advance tickets to the Anti-Valentine's Day Pub Crawl ($30 solo, or $40 with a wingman) for a chance to party at Bar 244, McVeigh's, Cube (for a pillow fight) and Uniun (for a 50 Shades of Grey themed party). The cost of the ticket covers priority entrance, transportation between venues and mingling games.

6. The Anti-Valentines Day Dance Party being held at Junction City Music Hall bills itself as a "distraction from this stupid holiday." Try out the new cocktail menu, dance, and maybe eat some un-love cupcakes - there's no cover so, really, there's nothing to lose.

7. Once couple's dinner and sex talks are over, The Steady hosts a F*ck Love edition of Tramp. Singles are welcome for the dance party starting at 11pm.

8. Swipe your way to a new match with Scarlett BoBo's ValenTinder at Wayla Bar on Queen East. Cover is $5 and doors open at 10pm.

9. Show off your paddle moves at SPiN Toronto which hosts SPiN The Paddle, an evening of fun flirty games of ping pong complete with menu specials and mingling games for singles. 9pm onwards.

10. Get your lit on at Forno Cultura which hosts This Ain't No 50 Shades of Grey, a reading from a Theft by Chocolate for King West singles (a.k.a Kingles).
