Of course, there are plenty of valid reasons to dread 14th February. If you're coupled, you feel the pressure to make a grand gesture, and if you're (unhappily) single, you feel the disgust of being surrounded by over-the-top romantic gestures.
But, what about the people who are unabashedly pro-Valentine's Day? Is the world safe for them anymore? Can they buy their oversized teddy bears in peace? Maybe one day, but for now, it's safe to say that anti-Valentiners are the vocal majority.
As for our take on the holiday? There's nothing wrong with indulging in a little Hallmark-fuelled, candy-filled romance — but there's nothing wrong with being a conscientious objector, either. When V-Day rolls around, we suggest that you do you.
