EVERYONE BE COOL, IT’S ONLY FEBRUARY. NO PRESSURE DATING SEASON IS UPON US.
It’s the Hallmark Incorporated season of love. The stakes are never higher than in February to impress your signif’ other with the date to end all dates.
Feelin’ stressed? Don’t worry. We gotchu, love birds.
Whether you’re going on a Bumble date, trying to cuff that hottie, or keepin’ the spice alive in your LTR, allow us to be your cute lil’ baby cupid guide to all your Valentine’s needs with February’s NYC date guide.
Keep in mind that there is more to February than just V-Day. Mardi Gras... Chinese New Year... Restaurant Week... Let's get creative.
1. Check Out an Exhibit
February has got to be the worst month to start dating someone new because of the impending “V” word.
The trick to not scaring off a first date in the month of LUUURVE? Keep it easy breezy!
Why not make yourself seem super cool and smart by hitting up the Exhibitionism: Rolling Stones exhibit in it’s last few weeks at Industria!
Tickets are only $30, and the exhibit is in the final weeks, so it’s a good excuse to go on a date with a new boo in the high stakes month of February for a reason other than expressing eternal love.
Afterwards grab a drink at The Jane, or one of the many cute bars in the Meatpacking District.
2. Mardi Gras!
February isn't all about Valentine's Day, you guys!
