NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Valentine's Day is finally here, and while the day may bring romance, fancy dinners, chocolates and warm feelings to many, it is also a time that makes others rather miserable or at very least, more than a tad cynical.
Luckily, we have the secret ingredient to make Valentine's Day bearable, even fun, for those who wish they were with someone on Feb. 14: wine.
Specifically, lots of wine. But we're not talking about the good stuff here. No, the good stuff is too expensive for this mission. We need the cheap stuff, the bargain bin booze, the stuff that even college students can afford.
So don't fret if the the fake hearts and the never-ending streams of jewelry commercials get you down. We agree Valentine's Day couldn't end quickly enough, and enough with all the pity because you may not have a date.
The antidote is wine. Without further commiserating, here are 7 Cheap Wines to Help You Totally Forget About Valentine's Day. (Note: We do not suggest combining these wines in one sitting. Pick one and stick with it.)
