Scenario 1: Single, broke and despondent.
Celebrate at: Hooters
Nothing soothes a damaged soul like boneless wings, cheap beer and cheery scantily-clad waitresses. Grab a friend and enjoy 20 boneless wings for 2 for only $9.99. Added bonus: You can get drunk on their $5 margaritas and bad-mouth your exes.
Scenario 2: You have won $20,000 on a scratch-off lottery ticket and you can finally afford to propose to your girlfriend (and pay your electric bill).
Celebrate at: Pizza Hut
For the first time ever, Pizza Hut is offering a $10,010 "proposal package" that will help you pop the question with fireworks, a limo, a ruby ring, flowers, a videographer and of course, a $10 dinner box featuring pizza, breadsticks and cinnamon sticks.
Scenario 3: You're a hipster couple that loves irony.
Celebrate at: White Castle
Make your V-Day "hot and steamy" with the burgers at your nearby White Castle. For the sixth year in a row, the chain gets dressed up for the occasion with red tablecloths and plastic flowers, offering free dessert and a complimentary photo to all V-day diners. A favorite V-Day destination of broke/ironic lovers everywhere.
Scenario 4: You want to break up with your significant other immediately after Valentine's Day.
Celebrate at: Papa John's
If you want to say "I'm trying" without actually trying, hit up Papa John's and snag a $15 heart-shaped pizza - the deal includes one topping and a free Cinapple dessert. The heart-shaped pie will help you break the news to your soon-to-be ex that you'll both be spending Valentine's Day home in sweatpants.
Scenario 5: You live in the South and you love waffles.
Celebrate at: Waffle House
The beloved Southern chain will go reservation-only for the eve of the 14th, offering a tablecloth-clad/candlelit dinner service. Why dress up for V-Day? Enjoy a waffle dinner with your honey in this casual romantic environment. See the list of participating locations here.
