Ah, love is in the air. Or is it? Valentine's Day can be suffocating for singles, and even worse if you're just getting out of a relationship. Good news, you don't have to sit home with a pint ice cream, binge-watching crappy TV shows this year. Here are three fantastic ways to make you forget that cockroach. Which brings me to option number one:

Squash Him/Her! 

  • Several zoos are offering the opportunity to name a cockroach after your ex. Perhaps my favorite is the El Paso Zoo in Texas though. You can name them and then they'll live feed on Facebook, your ex (the cockroach) being eaten by a meerkat.

Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy! 

  • If cockroaches don't do it for you, how about naming a Salmon after him/her? And instead of a little meerkat, how about a bear? A Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Oregon wants to cure your broken heart with their Catch and Release program. You'll get to name a salmon before they feed it to the bears.

Eat Your Feelings!

  • Bring that picture of your ex that you've been holding onto to Hooters, and they'll help you choose the most satisfying method of disposal (shred it, destroy it with darts, bury it, or burn it). Then they'll hook you up with some free wings.
