It seems cliche, but it happens every year -- people get straight up dumped around the holidays.

And what happens? You grit your teeth through Santa's hearty laughter, thinking about all the fun you should have been having. Soon you're kiss-less at the strike of midnight on New Year's Eve, and when you wake from this misery, Valentine's Day is looming around the corner. Crap.

Well, we feel your pain (seriously, we were tossed recently, too). And so do hotels, so they're offering what we refer to as "Lonely-Hearts Packages" (many dressed up as "Guys Getaways").

Here's a rundown of some ideas to pitch to your good buddies. Remember to play up how much your heart hurts and give them the proper guilt trip to come along and get you back in the game. You would do it for them!

Swig Whiskey Slopeside in Park City: The Mancation package from The Sky Lodge includes a two bedroom Sky suite, a 50-minute massage, a private, in-suite whiskey tasting by High West Distillery, VIP passes to The Downstairs dance club, a discount for ski and snowboard rentals and lift tickets to Park City Mountain Resort. Rates per person, per night start at $380 until April 15 (blackout dates: Jan. 17 to 27). Think of all the snow bunnies you'll mingle with!

Beckon Your Bachelor Swagger in Vegas: For $219/night, the Palazzo gives you a luxury suite for two nights, a $50 F & B credit to Lagasse's Stadium, complimentary admission to LAVO club, dinner and beer pairing for two at Public House, and a $50 beverage credit at the Bourbon Room. Play the ultimate payback card: Spend money you would have spent on her on scandalous Vegas ventures. Jackpot!

Report to Spring Training: You'll have to wait until the beginning of March, but we all know that the simple presence of plans in the future -- the realization you won't be miserable for the rest of your life -- can go a long way to curing a case of the blues. And what brings more hope than the anticipation of Opening Day? You'll be in a better place when the time comes to take the trip in March, and you'll have one hell of a time drinking beer in the Phoenix desert, hearing the crack of the bat and looking for love in a box of Cracker Jacks. The Royal Palms Resort will give you a third night free, and you can also find deals offered through specific ball clubs, such as this deal from the Oakland Athletics.
