It’s that time of the year again. While the whole world drowns in a sea of heart-shaped balloons and overpriced chocolates, you use every ounce of your strength to try and control your reflexive eye rolls.
Here are 10 things you can relate to if Valentine’s is your least favourite time of the year.
You wonder why couples think Valentine’s Day is an excuse to go all out on the PDA.
You snicker as people plan elaborate surprises for their SOs, like they’re pressured to prove their love.
You see right through the marketing gimmicks and commercials. “What better way to show your love than to….” SHUT UP.
You stare in disbelief at couples who have dysfunctional relationships 364 days of the year, but suddenly act like they’re in a fairy tale.
If you’re in a relationship, you hate that people won’t stop asking you what your plans are.
It feels like the end of the world when you find out your boyfriend loves V-Day.
If you’re single, you find yourself at the receiving end of pity you don’t want or need.
You start looking for friends you can pose with as a couple to exploit club and restaurant discounts.
Every year, for just a fleeting moment, you wonder if you’d turn into a love monster too, given a chance.
But you know that you’re on the right side. Money you don’t spend on gifts = money you can spend on yourself. Do the math!
