6 ways to spend Valentine’s when you have beef with Cupid

Sometimes Valentine’s Day is just not “the vibe”. Our team shared 6 fun ways to spend the day, even if you are currently not on speaking terms with Cupid (or your significant other).

“Roses are red, violets are blue,
Valentine’s Day - we’re coming for you! 😈”

Whilst at Uber Carshare we're all about sharing the love (and your neighbour’s car), we understand that sometimes you just don't feel romantically inclined on Valentines Day.

That’s cool. We get it. We’ve all been there. Seems like some of our team are still there based on their responses (savage).

Here are our top 6 recommendations for how to spend Valentine’s when you are beefing with Cupid.

Less of a jungle, more of a zoo

Sometimes karma just isn’t quick enough, and that’s why there's a zoo that'll let you name a cockroach after your ex.

While you won’t ever get those misspent years back, YOU WILL be able to inform your ex that a cockroach with their name has provided a delicious meal to a zoo animal.

Laughter is the best medicine

Whilst leaving maniacal laughter on a voicemail is creepy and probably illegal - laughing at a comedy show is not. That’s why we recommend hitting up a comedy show and letting laughter cure what ails your broken heart. If you are Sydney based (or visiting) we recommend hitting up The Comedy Store Galentines Day Showcase.

Moving on is easy

Well, maybe not easy, but having access to vans via Uber Carshare (so you can move out of that tiny one-bedroom apartment you share with your ex) sure helps.

Reclaim Valentine’s Day for friends

With an epic scavenger hunt. Sick of couples hogging the bars and restaurants? Never fear, the anti-romance scavenger hunt is here. Round up your friends and plan for a night of romance-busting shenanigans. Bonus points if you go to the window of the fanciest restaurant in town and interrupt a date with inappropriate facial expressions.

We’re not talking about facials and long baths (snooze fest). We are talking about real self-care, you know, like eating a burrito for every person who's dented your heart.

Leave town

They say change is as good as a holiday, but sometimes change sucks and a holiday is much more fun. It doesn’t take much for our team to suggest a road trip (and with access to thousands of cars around Australia… why not?), but a beef with Cupid seems like a totally valid reason. Have your own local Eat, Love, Pray moment and give Valentine’s Day the flick.
