Are you depressed because it’s Valentines Day and no one loves you? I thought so. But cheer up, will ya? V-day is just an excuse for #tragic people to grope each other in public. Lovey-dovey people are lame and annoying and normally wear fleece. Trust me, you don’t want to be one of them. Because what’s important to remember about love is, if you feel like you need to parade it in front of people–if your affection needs an AUDIENCE–then there is something lacking elsewhere! Women who get giant bouquets of flowers delivered to them at work are the same women who get beaten up by their boyfriends after work, 4realz, and no amount of roses will make up for the bruises on your inner thighs. Oh, and if you are one of those icky lovey-dovey people, please, stop making out in public. It grosses everyone around you out. We don’t want to see the insides of your mouths. Hand holding, mild touching, and short, closed mouthed kisses are acceptable, but that’s it. SMILE!
