Everyone knows how to play Facebook roulette. It's when you scroll through your Facebook feed, hopelessly trying to avoid engagement announcements and wedding photos posted by people you haven't seen or spoken to since your high school graduation.

In fact, it's actually kind of fun and did I mention packed with opportunity? Nothing like a day dedicated to celebrating true love to make you and everyone else on the guest list sink into their feels.
