People are offering their third wheel ‘services’ this Valentine’s Day

It may be a universal celebration of love, but let’s be honest here: Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone. Some people will be celebrating the holiday listening to Céline Dion’s “All By Myself,” raising a glass to their lonely hearts or simply not joining the ruckus of lovers out and about on February 14. But just because you don’t have someone special to spend Valentine’s Day this doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of the holiday.

Some people thought about making use of their time and certain “skills” to offer their services for couples on Valentine’s Day. If you need someone to third wheel with you and your loved one, just hit them up, and they’re willing to offer you a good deal.

But if you’re looking for a partner in crime who you can hire to take vengeance against your ex, this one may be up for it.

And just like a real business-minded person, some are offering “freebies” to potential customers.

Others are willing to do it for the love of free food.

Or give you cheap rates and a free shoulder to cry on. We all need one sometimes, especially on a day like Valentine’s.

Those who have skills in photography are willing to third wheel with you and give you IG-worthy and #couplegoals shots. Think about it—you’d get to keep your special day in well-captured photos as a keepsake, and you’d also help support these photographers and their art.

This may have been a trend a few years back but single people can also “rent a boyfriend” on Valentine’s Day. For a day, you can hire someone to pose as your boyfriend so you can finally end your Tita’s question: “Kailan ka magkakaboyfriend?

See, there’s no need to be sad if you’re single on Valentine’s Day or if you don’t have a special date. February 14 could be just like any other day or an opportunity for you to make money. After all, just like any other holiday, Valentine’s Day is also a marketing ploy for businesses. And the best thing is, it’s payday for some people, too!
