Your Guide on What NOT to Do on Valentine’s Day

You’ve been inundated with “Lover’s Packages” at hotels, “Sweetheart Specials” at restaurants, and countless “True Love Diamond Collections” at the jewelers, but, you’re not the kind of person to do what *everyone else *expects you to do for Valentine’s Day. Afteral, you’re something of a romance renegade, with your own ideas of what to do for your one-and-only this year. Here’s five of those clever ideas to cancel immediately.

No matter what. We mean it. Don’t do these things.

#One: Eww. Don’t.

Don’t post “Happy VD!” on your past conquest’s Facebook wall. It implies they now have venereal disease. Better yet, don’t give someone VD, use one of our Mogo Condoms! (Come by one of our Mogo stores for your free condom!)


#Two: Really? Don’t.

Don’t tell your friends you’re staying home on Valentine’s night to pamper yourself. Everyone knows what you really do when you’re alone anyway.

#Three: Yeah…don’t do that. 

Don’t make “trying that new laser-tag place” your best idea for having a non-traditional Valentine’s Day.


Date Night

#Four: Please don’t.

Don’t surprise your sweetheart with a music video of yourself belting out their favorite song. Trust, it will only be cute on the first viewing.

#Five Just don’t.

Don’t be a second-rate baller and charge multiple bottles of wine to your credit card at dinner.  You look great after a few drinks, but your debt will never look good.


#Six: Yeah!! Do!!

DO Uncreditcard your life and take your Valentine to a creatively stimulating night at Paintlounge in Toronto on Mogo. We’re giving away tickets to two sets of couples. $150 in paint classes and cocktails. Yeah!
