Single on Valentine’s Day? These Quotes Will Cheer You Up

We’ve all been single on Valentine’s Day, and if you think about it, there’s many reasons why it’s better that way. First of all, you don’t have to spend money on gifts and chocolate, and second of all, you don’t have to come up with some elaborate date that outdoes last year’s February 14 festivities.

In fact, some of the best Valentine’s Days are spent alone, because nauseating couples have plans of their own, leaving those of us without SO’s with free range to go to the gym and not have to wait for the elliptical, treat ourselves by staying in and doing a face mask, or binge-watch our favorite TV shows.
