Never sleep alone
Finally a show that has been designed to help you hook up. What better wing man, in this case ‘wing show’ could you be looking for? At Joes Pub on Valentine’s Day, Dr. Alex Schiller brings together singles and curious individuals together in a night full of laughter and socio-sensual interaction. She insists that the audience sitting in the singles section be actually single and ready to interact with total strangers.
The whole idea is to set the stage for those connections and the all-important mood. So before you leave home for this event, ensure you have your bedroom in order, chances are you will not be sleeping alone. Definitely one of the best New York things to do this love season.

On the 12th
of February at Bell House, Evan and Rebecca interview couples from their audience to get some details on their love stories. Details like how they met, how they fell for each other and some other few major happenings in the relationship. They do this just because they can and yes, because they are Nosey. Moments later they take these little bits and pieces given to them and create an improvised musical complete with a band. There is no better way to get a couple more in love than this.
Love at Times Square on Valentine’s Day
Being surrounded by people whom you share an interest with, in this case whose who are a lot and are madly in love with their better halves and cannot help but showcase it to the world is a great way to get you inspired to do something totally insane yet romantic with your lover. In New York and at the Times Square specifically (one of the most popular New York attractions
there is), lots of couples gather to showcase their love in style on Valentine’s Day. There are those who play out their surprise weeding proposals (that they have been planning for weeks or even months), those who renew their vows to each other and those who actually get wedded.
Get lost under the stars
Lying on a beach somewhere watching the vast dark sky with some stars is romantic. But truth be told, the natural sky does not have enough action to keep you entertained. Your creativity can only take you so far. That said, you still can get that feeling and sight, but only with more to see. At the American Museum of Natural History, at the Rose Center for Earth and Space
, you will enjoy seeing all bodies the universe has to offer flying in the ‘sky’. You will also enjoy an open bar with drinks that you fancy from champagne to cocktails. You will also be treated to intriguing and insightful love stories of cosmos mythology. This is going down on the 14th
of February. If you intend to go on a New York vacation
, then this is one of the New York sites you cannot afford to skip.
You can express your feelings to your lover any day any time. That said, you cannot possibly let Valentine’s Day just fly by. Try and do something different this year. And since you are in New York, try the above events for a blast. New York attractions to visit this Valentines are plenty but you can still get entertained if you dare enough.
