Around this time of year, almost everyone seems to be making bad decisions and getting in touch with their exes. That’s not because they realised their ex was a catch, but rather due to the sole purpose of Valentine’s Day pressure. Stop yourself from making that mistake by staying busy this weekend and keeping the toxicity of your ex as far away as possible. We are here to help you stay busy with our weekly guide. Find exciting events, and hopefully, you don’t run into your ex.
