5 reasons why Valentine's Day is a nightmare for everyone

Anyone else feeling a distinct lack of love for 14 February? Here's why we're so over Valentine's Day...

Why we hate Valentine's day
From the pressure it places on couples to everyone's mad obsession with making everything heart shaped, here's why we just don't get Valentine's Day...


Valentine's Day forces new couples to have awkward relationship conversations


What's the protocol for approaching Valentine's Day when you're in a new relationship? Should you ignore it completely or get him a gift just in case? And what if he ignores it, does that mean he doesn't see the relationship going anywhere? Lord, help us.

Valentine's gives men an excuse to forget romance for the rest of the year


Even though we'd like little romantic touches from our blokes every day of the year (you know, hand holding, flowers, kind words, an hour without the football), Valentine's Day seems to give them permission to be idiots in exchange for one blissful 24 hour period. So. Not. Good.


Valentine's Day ruins restaurant meals out


On 14 February it's almost impossible to go to a restaurant without being force fed sharing platters, while surrounded by couples who are either acting indecently or sitting uncomfortably through a forced romantic meal. Who even likes sharing food anyway?

Heart shaped novelty food isn't very exciting


Contrary to popular belief, women don't prefer heart-shaped biscuits to normal digestives. It's just a biscuit with a new shape, that is in many ways more difficult to eat. Pink icing doesn't even taste nice.


Valentine's Day turns single people into moaning idiots


If you're single, hearing loved-up couples calling each other pooky bear will make you want to vomit, but that doesn't mean you have to put on Joni Mitchell and cry in a corner. Your single and ready to mingle, baby! Own it.
