Let all the other couples pretend to be extra in love. You have fun to attend to.

3. And just think about it: all that money you would have spent on that significant other? IT'S ALL YOURS NOW!

None of that awkward "Do you want dessert?" "I think I'm good. Do you?" "Nah, I'm pretty full actually" talk (even though you TOTALLY wanted dessert).
