Remember, if you hate today, instead of being a whiny butthole, you should bring flowers to someone at a nursing home–just ask the staff who gets flowers the least–or send funny lolcat cards to everyone in a burn ward, or bring vegan cookies to the staff of the local humane society for all their hard work.
The holiday’s roots are twisted indeed, but it’s come to be an occasion for showing love, not getting love. So don’t be selfish. If Valentine’s Day sucks, it’s because you’re sulking instead of participating.
Go make someone feel like the world is a better place.
