Ah, Valentine's Day. It's probably the corniest holiday of all time, and yet you can't help but love it. Who can resist hearts, candy, chocolates, and roses? Who still gets nostalgic about passing around Valentine's Day cards to every kid in class back in school? Even though it may be overflowing with clichés, what each zodiac sign loves about Valentine's Day is proof that, secretly, everyone's obsessed with love.
Sure, everyone's least favorite thing about Valentine's Day is the way it showcases what's going on in your love life. If you're single, it could make you feel so alone watching other couples bask in romantic Valentine's Day festivities. If you're in a relationship and it's unsatisfactory, you might feel obligated to keep up with appearances, making all the romance feel forced. And even if you're in a great relationship, there's the stress of finding a gift and/or activity your SO will appreciate. At the end of the day, all that lovey-dovey stuff can feel more like pressure than something to look forward to.
However, it doesn't have to be so complicated. Why not let Valentine's Day be the day you celebrate all the love in your life? Saccharine gestures of romance aside, I'm sure you're surrounded by love. Why not simply enjoy Valentine's Day for what it is?
