Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s Day can go suck itself and choke on it too. Ok, maybe slightly harsh, but being alone on the dreaded VD can be tough.. right?! It’s like “kick em when they’re down” in February, what with having to cope with unwanted “words of wisdom” from married Mandy in the office “It will happen when you stop looking” AND the constant tirade of over the top and quite frankly predictable, boring social media updates “OH MY GAWD…. we got engaged!!!!!” YEH COS THAT’S ORIGINAL.
Valentine’s Day smug is inevitably going to infiltrate your entire body and pump it full with the dull ache of loneliness unless…… unless you grab hold of that sweet shining single spade and dig your fine ass out of that shit pit.
