'Singles Awareness Day'

Anti-Valentine's Day party

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Let's face it: Valentine's Day isn't for everyone. A lot of cynics are out there, especially when it comes to love.

Inside Midtown Manhattan's Vander Bar, the anti-Valentine celebration is dripping with love. To those in attendance, February 14 is S.A.D.: Singles Awareness Day.

Even I feel bad. But, all you single people, don't feel so lonely. Two wise intellectuals (my father and comedian Larry David) say being with that someone special is not always what it's cracked up to be anyway.

A wise woman, Demetria Lucas, author of "A Belle in Brooklyn," says you shouldn't sweat the single stuff.

Another positive thing: you're not one of those contributing to the $17 billion spent on Valentine's Day, where 180 million cards are exchanged and 196 million roses handed out.

You only live once, even if you are alone.
