Valentine's Day is an expensive and stressful holiday for couples all over Missoula. Why not just break up at one of these local places and have a relaxing evening to yourself?

I'll admit it. It sounds pretty cold to break up with your significant other around Valentine's Day. Do you know what else is cold? The price of dinner, drinks, hotels, flowers, chocolate, and gifts. What if you just took all of that time and money and spent it all on yourself? You're amazing and you deserve it. Even if you did break up with your sweetie just before or on Valentine's day.

So it's decided. Time to go solo and do what you want to do.  But where should you do the deed? Well, I've come up with a few places that will not only minimize collateral damage, but you might just have some fun after it's said and done.

5. The Movie Theater

This one might be tricky, but the payoff is big. Is there a new flick you've been wanting to see? Wouldn't it be great to see it alone, all along with your own pop and popcorn? You won't have to share candy or explain the plot of the movie the whole time. The key here is to break up in the theatre lobby. This way they will be less tempted to make a scene and hopefully just storm off. Then you can watch the movie by yourself, and since you have to turn your phone on silent, you won't be bothered with "I hate your guts" texts. It's a win-win.

4. Concert at The Wilma

This location gives you a few different strategic moves that will benefit you greatly. Like with the movie, as soon as the deed is done, you can enjoy the concert all by yourself. Now if you have already purchased the ticket for both, you are obviously going to want to use the packed crowd to your advantage and just disappear into the crowd to avoid any awkward contact. You will also save tons of money not having to purchase drinks for two.

3.  Wal-Mart at 3 a.m

This one is a bit tricky, but I've actually seen this happen and it works. Just hear me out. Breaking up in public can be very embarrassing. If you want to let the other party down easy, do it at Wal-Mart at 3 a.m. Nobody is going to care. Let them throw a fit and call you every name in the book. People at Wal-Mart at 3 a.m have other problems to deal with and your loud breakup is the least of their worries.

2. Outside of Your Favorite Now Closed Restaraunt

Chances are you and your sweetie dined at one of our many now-closed restaurants. Plan a date night at one of them (make sure they don't know it's closed). When you get there break down in tears and proclaim "this whole town is falling apart, just like our relationship. This is the last straw. I just can't do this anymore". Feel free to ad-lib here

1. The Fox Club

Chances are if you bring your date here on Valentine's Day, they might just do the dirty work and break up with you first. If not, within about 40 minutes they probably will. Chances are there will be a huge blowout from this choice, but the reward is top-notch. After you are single you now have a fistful of dollar bills and some scantily clad company to ease your broken heart.
