You’re either into Valentine’s Day or you just can’t stand it.
Year after year this holiday creates beautiful moments, touching memories and life-changing revelations, single or not.
If you love Valentine’s day you can’t wait for that feeling. You know… the feeling. On February 14, the air is warm. The figurative butterflies from your stomach come alive. Chocolate is sweeter and flowers smell like love itself. There’s a certain aura about the day of lovers that lingers onto your skin, gives you a glow and seeps into your bloodstream until you’re skipping around like a lovesick Shakespeare character.
Now if you hate Valentine’s day, your day is probably a bit different. The nonstop presence of happy couples in red and pink surrounds you. The air is probably filled with nauseating cheer. Restaurants are covered in red glitter hearts and pink balloons. Chocolate is more expensive and the price of flowers skyrockets.
