Executive Search Dating's Top 10 Best and Worst Valentine's Day Dating Tips for Vancouver Singles

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Executive Search Dating, Vancouver's #1 personalized matchmaking service for single professionals, wants to help Vancouver singles survive the most stressful day on the singles calendar: Valentine's Day!

"How you feel about Valentine's Day depends on your relationship status," says Paddi Rice, President and Owner of Executive Search Dating. "If you have found your special someone, it's an opportunity to show them you care. But if you're still single, the best part of Valentine's Day may be that it heralds the beginning of the spring 'Matchmaking Season'!"

Here are Executive Search Dating's Top 10 best and worst Valentine's Day Dating Tips for Vancouver singles:

Best:

1.  Be classy, keep it classic: flowers, chocolates, and a nice card or note
    to your loved one are time-tested Valentine's Day winners. 
    
2.  Get creative: who says Valentine's Day has to be an over-priced dinner
    at a fancy restaurant? Try ice skating at Robson Square, or snowshoeing
    on a local mountain. 
    
3.  Be cultured: take your date on a tour of the Vancouver Art Gallery or
    Museum of Vancouver, followed by a post gallery drink and good
    conversation. 
    
4.  Pick another night: avoid the emotional and physical stress of making
    dinner reservations on Valentine's eve. Choose another night and make it
    your own personal Valentine's Day! 
    
5.  Take back Valentine's Day: if you're single, don't sit alone at home
    feeling sorry for yourself; gather some single friends at your favourite
    pub or live music venue. You'll likely run into other Valentine's Day
    refugees and maybe even meet someone new. 
    

Worst:

1.  Rush it: don't feel pressured to do something on Valentine's Day that
    you wouldn't otherwise do... it can be a nice night to show someone you
    care, but save the marriage proposal for another night. 
    
2.  Get an expensive or cheesy gift: cliche though it may be, it really is
    the thought that counts. Try a thoughtful, handwritten card instead of
    expensive jewellery or lingerie.  
    
3.  Lead someone on: if you do invite someone out on Valentine's Day, be
    sure to manage expectations accordingly... if you see it as a simple
    friend's get together, make sure your date knows that it's not
    necessarily the start of something more serious. 
    
4.  Ignore it completely if you're a couple: yes, Valentine's Day is a
    'Hallmark Holiday' and shouldn't be a life-altering event, but if you
    have someone special in your life show them you care with a simple gift,
    thought or kind act. 
    
5.  Get depressed: if you're single, focus on the positive. The arrival of
    Valentine's Day means that spring, the 'Matchmaking Season', is right
    around the corner!

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
