Watch: Find Love in Cyberspace
For those of you who are dateless and still would like to find a Valentine, finding love online might be the opportunity you’re looking for.
The good news is an eHarmony survey showed that 70% of singles would go on a blind date or first date on Valentine’s, so get yourself date-ready, grab your red lipstick and favorite red dress, and let’s get started.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to ramp up your flirting skills. Go ahead and wish that secret crush in the office a Happy Valentine’s Day. Ask him or her who their Valentine is this year. If they tell you they don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day, be spontaneous and suggest going to a casual dinner or movie. Log onto OpenTable.com and see if there are any restaurants in your area and price range that you’d like to check out.
Let technology be your best friend today. I’m a big fan of online dating and it’s peak season for new members on dating sites. There are over 1500 sites to pick from. If you’re already a member of an Internet dating site, log on and see who has recently winked at you, flirted with you, or viewed your profile. Jump out of your digital comfort zone and wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day. Chances are they’ll enjoy that message in their inbox and you might end up putting a date on the calendar.
Keep your mobile phone handy during your lunch break and stop at the makeup counter at a local department store and get a mini-makeover. If you’re a Mac enthusiast, stop by the Apple Store, where it’s easy to flirt with others taking the same lesson. Send a text message saying Happy Valentine’s day to the cute guy at the gym and remember to smile wherever you go today.
Remember, romance and love are something to strive for all year long. Wishing you much love and joy in cyberspace, or wherever you may roam.
