Tinder Live! With Lane Moore
Union Hall, 702 Union St., nr. Fifth Ave., Park Slope; 718-638-4400; February 13, 8 p.m.
Lane Moore puts in the work, digging through the garbage that Tinder has to offer to provide you with a hilarious comedy show. Moore isn't cynical about love, she's just put in a lot of time in the trenches. And she knows that if you have to kiss a few princes (or guys with weird back hair), then you might as well have a little fun with it.
$10 ($12 day of event)

The Rejection Show Valentine's Day Heartbreak Haven
Littlefield, 622 Degraw St., nr. Fourth Ave., Gowanus; 8 p.m.
This comedy night is sure to keep things very real. Performers, writers, and comedians including Myq Kaplan, Aparna Nancherla, Corinne Fisher, and Mara Wilson will be sharing their own tales of rejection, proving that you can make getting shot down look crazy cool.
$10 ($12 day of event)

Brooklyn Chocolate Takedown
The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, 514 Union St., nr. Nevins St., Gowanus; 347-223-4410; noon to 2 p.m.
Head to Royal Palms to gorge yourself on chocolate goodness from 20 Brooklyn home cooks. (They get the prizes, but really, you reap the rewards.) And if someone catches your eye, you can flirt over an intense game of shuffleboard. Bonus incentive: Apparently, four now-married couples have met at this event.

Unloveable: A Smiths & Morrissey Valentine's Day

Sadie Hawkins Night
The People's Improv Theater, 123 E. 24th St., nr. Lexington Ave.; 212-563-7488; 6 p.m.

The Dream
Bowery Ballroom; 6 Delancey St., nr. Bowery; 212-533-2111; 9 p.m.
The co-writer of seminal pop classics like "Umbrella," "Me Against the Music," and "Single Ladies" definitely knows how to have a good time and deliver top-notch hits. Check him out and dance on your own.

Justin Vivian Bond: Love is Crazy

The Lynn Redgrave Theater, 45 Bleecker St., nr. Lafayette St.; 212-925-1806; 4:30, 7:30
Ira Glass's good friend Mike Birbiglia is a funny, insightful storyteller whose show is all about what makes a joke funny to some people and not to others. So if your last breakup happened over differing senses of humor, you might get a bonus bit of catharsis out of this evening.

An Evening of Love: The Valentine’s Day Show featuring Stephanie Mills & Will Downing
The Beacon Theater, 2124 Broadway, nr. 74th St.; 212-465-6225; 8 p.m.
This is a pretty lovey-dovey option, but hear us out: These powerhouse voices will make you believe anything is possible. Remember Broadway legend Stephanie Mills from The Wiz. This is what you'll be getting, all night long!
