It's that time of the year again! Valentine’s Day, a loving holiday overflowing with love, couples and despair. If you’re single, getting over a breakup, left on read, or stuck in a situationship, February 14th is a massive trigger warning for all single people.

Valentines Day is for men who don’t put in any effort the rest of the year.— Building Better Fathers (@BldgBetterDads) February 10, 2022

Here are 5 Valentines Day struggles all single people can relate to:
1. It looks like the world vomited red hearts everywhere
From all the flashy store displays and mall decorations to the gaudy hype on the internet, it's almost as if the world vomited red hearts all over for us to mop up.
I really hate Valentines day. I know it's about love and ish but you have 365 days in a year to say to your partner that you love them. Why just now?! And it's fucking annoying seeing hearts everywhere. The only good thing is that tomorrow the chocolate is cheaper 🤷🏻♀️— Catarina (@meemars) February 14, 2021
2. There's couples everywhere
The streets are crawling with love-struck couples canoodling in tiny corners, shoving their relationship down our throats. As if the real world wasn't enough, social media is crammed with elaborate virtual gestures of romance as well. We get it, you're in love!
i haven’t been single on valentines day in a few years and I never realized how annoying it is to see cute couples all happy and in love until now.— fattie 🦶🏼 (@fattiecakesx) February 10, 2022
pls stop im gunna vomit thank u
3. Overwhelming emotions of despair
All year round you take pride in your single status. You brag about your independence, not being tied down, steering clear of the relationship drama. But as the dreaded V-Day nears, lingering thoughts of loneliness, self-loathing and desertion begin to creep up. "Why am I alone?" "Will I spend Valentines Day weeping into a bottle of tequila?"

4. Eating your feelings
You hide your loneliness in a pile of chocolate because people are temporary, but chocolate is forever.

You exude a bitter amount of hatred towards couples, romance and the holiday. On February 14th, love is the enemy. But in reality you are projecting your own heart ache.
The people who complain about Valentines Day are more annoying than the people who actually celebrate it. Let people be in love. You will survive. I promise.— Diana Daoud (@dianadaoudd) February 11, 2022
