(Newser) – Valentine’s Day can be exhausting—for singles looking to avoid nauseating sightings of canoodling lovers. Travel and Leisure magazine offers tips on how to sidestep Cupid:

  • Ditch New England B&Bs for “groovy southwestern spas known for their (cough, cough) group activities.”
  • Candlelit restaurants are “a regrettable reminder that no one’s heart burns for you.” Instead, choose “nightclubs with flattering lighting.”

  • Skip the cozy ski lodge—“woe betide the lodger with no snow bunny of his own”—and hit slopes like Jackson Hole, where hot singles congregate.
  • Chocolate shops will have you gorging on “your own box of bittersweet bites,” but at cafés-cum-bars, small talk can become big love.
