By Brian Worley

While “Virginia is for Lovers,” Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating your lover. However, relationships and love are overrated. Don’t stress out if you are among the more than half of the single population in the U.S. that will be celebrating this romantic holiday solo, because you are not alone. According to a report on Bloomberg.com, you are one of the 124.6 million single Americans that will not be contributing to the $13.19 billion annual spend on roses, candy, candlelit dinners and stuffed cupids. Take this dating advice, and put love on hold, if not only for the amount of money you can save!

The average consumer spends $116.21 on Valentine’s Day, so pocket the cash and follow these sexy, single and ready to mingle tips that could potentially leave you with Cupid’s arrow piercing your heart or a bunch of mental memories of another night on the town where you have the time of your life and can still keep searching for that relationship and love.

Love is an amazing thing. However, there are times when we have questions about a particular relationship or want to know when we’ll meet a special someone. You might even be wondering if you’ll meet ‘the one’ on Valentine’s Day. That is where the Love Lenormand reading by Yolanda Shoshana will help!¬†The reading includes an in-depth, nine-card spread about your love life completed with the Lenormand Silhouette deck — a deck that is perfect for love readings due to soft and romantic images of lovers in Paris on one side and the traditional Lenormand images on the other.

Lenormand fortune cards were inspired by the French gypsy, Marie Anne Lenormand, and have been used since the 15th century. The 36-card deck is similar to tarot cards but offer a different experience. The cards have a touch of astrology and numerology in them to help with making predictions.

For the reading, you will send your questions via email. After your questions are received, a reading will be completed and sent via email with a mp3 voice recording of the session. Why wait for a secret admirer to step up or pine over a would-be lover? You can find out if Mr. or Mrs. Right is heading your way!

This Valentine’s Day, CupidsPulse.com will be giving away one Love Lenormand reading from Yolanda Shoshana!

By Kristin Mattern

One of the greatest ways to show someone you love them is by cooking them up a delicious meal. Another way some couples and families show their affection is by having a rousing argument around the dinner table while surrounded by a yummy landscape of food: a tradition carried on by the stars of Mob Wives and the Graziano sisters.

Mob Wives creator and executive producer Jennifer, Mob Wives star Renee, and restaurateur Lana have come together to provide you with sensational recipes that will make you a star in your own kitchen and give you something to banter over this Valentine’s Day.

Their new book,¬†“How To Use A Meat Cleaver” is a¬†full-color cookbook which features 100 of their most-coveted family recipes including Lana’s Famous Meatballs, Lobster Arriagiatta,¬†Sunday Gravy, Sausage and Peppers, Fillet Mignon and more. The girls also share some personal family stories with their readers.

Instead of braving the crowds and eating mediocre-mass-produced-food this Valentine’s Day, cook like a Graziano and create cuisine that will impress your partner or your girlfriends with your culinary prowess. After all, sometimes the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach! Especially if you’re dating a foodie.

This Valentine’s Day, CupidsPulse.com will be giving away¬†a signed copy of “How to Use a Meat Cleaver!”

To enter for a chance to win please email¬†cupid@cupidspulse.com¬†with your full name, address, email, and daytime phone number NO LATER THAN¬†4 p.m.¬†EST today.

Valentine’s Day has come again, and now is the time to make it one to remember. Elizabeth Arden worked with Mariah Carey to create a fragrance that can live up to even your wildest dreams. If you’re going for “happily ever after” this year, then this scent is for you.

The multi-award winning artist wanted to put together a classic, captivating, and sexy scent, and she delivers with Dreams. She invites you to celebrate life and its many stages along the way and reminds you to cherish its most intimate moments.

The fragrance smells of salted caramel apple and star anise combined with bergamot and toasted almonds. There’s also a drop of honeysuckle intertwined with inviting freesia and a small undertone of lily of the valley that gives it a feminine touch. The last few ingredients are a blend of warm patchouli, Tonka bean, and Madagascar vanilla grounds. Yum!

Whether you are coupled or single, you can now arouse the senses with the intoxicating scent of Dreams.

This Valentine’s Day CupidsPulse.com will be giving away Dreams perfume from Elizabeth Arden!¬†

This post is sponsored by ‘Til DIVORCE Do Us Part.

By Kristin Mattern

Marriage doesn’t always end up being the fairy tale we imagine it will be and sometimes we don’t make it through “until death do us part.” ¬†But, whether you make it or not, you can now walk on the distopic side of love this Valentine’s Day by getting together with the girls and heading on over to see ‘TIL DIVORCE DO US PART: THE MUSICAL.

Yes, a musical about divorce! This original comedy was inspired by the true story of a Broadway producers’ wife who is suddenly dumped by her husband after years of marriage. Rather than sink into sadness, she decides to celebrate this new chapter in her life. Along with her spunky friends, they get their revenge through song and dance, and laugh their way through the stages of divorce and self-discovery.

You don’t need to be a divorcee to enjoy cabaret and vaudevillian melodies like “A Whole Lot Cuter” and “Better Glad Than Mad!’ Everyone whose ever been in love will sympathize with the touching moments the play reveals and root for these women who have turned to the comical side of divorce to heal their wounds. It’s a musical comedy that romps through all of the emotions that relationships and breakups bring. Therefore, it’s good for your sensitive man as well!

Everyone deserves to see this hysterical show, and now they can! We are offering our visitors a 30% discount when you purchase your tickets today! Simply buy online at BroadWayOffers.com or call 212-947-8844 and use the discount code: TLLSP52.
