I Dread Valentine's Day

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 People

    I've always hated Valentines Day.

    Especially when single. But even when not... Why should there just be one day where you tell and show someone how much they mean to you? Shouldn't that be every day?

    Hate It Actually.

    Sono solo. I'm alone. I think Valentine's Day is just an excuse to make all single people feel like crap and think they're lame.... And it works! All the single people are sitting alone at home thinking about how much they would love for someone to ask them to be their valentine...
