I was in college too, living in a little house run by a cross-cultural organization. My birthday's the day before Valentine's Day, and I planned to go out for dinner with some friends on actual Valentine's day since that fell on a Friday.
However, most of the students at the house were single, so they all asked me whether they could me because they desperately didn't want to be alone on V.Day. So there were over 20 kids at the restaurant! We went to a little hole-in-the-wall Thai place and they were very sweet about it!
Unfortunately, nearly everyone gave me boxes of chocolate for gifts, and there was no way I could eat them all, so afterwards I went with my two friends to give out chocolates to all the homeless people sitting around! There are lots of homeless people in that city so they loved it, and that made us incredibly happy too!
