50 Anti-Valentine's Quotes Anyone Who Hates Valentine's Day Can Relate To

People call it Valentine's Day, I call it Tuesday.

If you're like me and you're really, really single, you probably hate Valentine's Day. I've never had a romantic Valentine's Day in my life. Because of that, it's always been a day I've tried to avoid like the plague.

I used to love the cheesy holiday as a kid because as a child, Valentine's Day was about love in general. It was a day to get candy from your classmates and cute little cards. My mom would come home with chocolate hearts for me and I'd help my dad pick out beautiful roses for my mom.

As we get older, Valentine's Day just becomes about couples, leaving us single people to fend for ourselves. It's strictly a day to distinguish who is in a relationship and who is single.

It's the one day of the whole year that I wish I had someone. If you feel that way, just know you're not alone.
