Personally, I do not hate Valentine's Day. I 100 percent understand the criticisms of a holiday that was basically invented to sell things and make single people feel bad about themselves, and even though I am now in a partnership, I did not even hate Valentine's Day when I was single. This is because my love of chocolate outweighs whatever loneliness and sadness Valentine's Day would cause me.
And now that I am part of a couple that barely acknowledges the holiday (we maybe go out to dinner, although, ugh, what a hassle), I know that I like Valentine's Day for one reason and one reason only (the aforementioned chocolate). And I completely understand if you don't have the same unhealthy obsession with the sweet stuff. I get that Valentine's Day sucks for a lot of people. If you hate Valentine's Day, know that you are not alone. Far from it. All these people on Twitter hate it too. And I can sympathize, even though I'm blinded by my love for Whitman's samplers.
If you feel like you want to give Valentine's Day the finger, go right ahead.Even people who don't necessarily hate the holiday themselves can understand exactly why you do. These tweets pretty much sum it up.

Joke's on youAw man, this is a sad one. But on Valentine's Day, and every other day, you can drown your sorrows in chocolate, so that's not so bad.

By any means necessaryUm, I love this. Valentine's Day, whether you are celebrating with someone or not, should be about making yourself happy. So go out and do that...by any means necessary.
