Top 10 Worst About Things Valentine's Day

We don't even pretend that it's a good holiday, so let's look into the sucktastic things about Valentine's Day, shall we?
The Top Ten
1 Many people break up on Valentine's Day

Ah, yes. Nothing like a little irony in the day that is all about love being a breakup hotspot. Usually, this is usually caused by people being overly idealistic, with what a good Valentine's Day is supposed to be, and when the individual's "perfect Valentine's Day" is not what happens, they get angry with whoever didn't meet the high expectations, and decide "If you can't make this the perfect Valentine's Day, I'll have to find someone who can!" Yeah, love is in the air, but so are hate and idealism are, too.

That's kind of ironic in my opinion, since I first thought that this day was all about love and bring couples. I definitely didn't know the disturbing origins of this day...

I had maccas on this day. Normally I have pizza didn't break up with pizza tho, we're just on a break. I'll consider coming back to it next year. I still sometimes have it in my life. What? pizza wanted to spend so much time with me before Valentine's Day. LOL

Honestly it's kinda messed up like no matter how bad things get at least be civil enough to not end things on Valentines Day.

2 Lots of people are depressed

We all know that those who don't actually have a Valentine on the big day beat themselves up over the matter, and tend to act extra miserable, given they don't exactly fit in, on Valentine's Day, but it's even worse for those who are already depressed. Suicides on Valentine's Day are not unheard of.

Being Single on Valentine's Day Sucks... there's no sugarcoating it. I was there at one point and it's not a fun place to be. My best advice is to stay off social media and to just focus on you. If you don't have anyone else then treat yourself.

Indeed, especially considering there is the fact that not everyone has a date to go out with.

Actually yes. A lot of people commit suicide on Valentine's Day

3 You'll probably get bad service if you bring your date out for dinner

A fancy, expensive dinner is a popular idea for what to do on Valentine's Day, but that also makes booking a date for a restaurant much more difficult and strenuous. Given just about everyone is trying to do dinner, it's harder to get actual seats so and a huge wait, which anyone would agree is burdensome. And waiters and waitresses are more busy than usual on Valentine's Day, so it's more likely that they will screw up your orders.

4 There's the pressure to propose

Valentine's Day is perhaps the most popular day of the year for someone to ask the four word question: "Will you marry me?" Most people ask it in public, which can appear as cute, but it's also adding pressure not only to the singles out there to get the ball rolling, but also for the person being asked to say "Yes" even if they actually want to say "No," not to mention this becomes a competition on Valentine's Day, due to the increase in commercialism in recent years.

Just take things at your own speed. Just because other people are doing it doesn't mean you have to. Only do it when you're ready

5 First dates on Valentine's Day usually don't go well

Considering the weird competitiveness that Valentine's Day has established in the past twenty years, give or take a few, the pressure to get into your relationship quickly is so drastic that even if you're in a relationship, you'd more than likely try your first date on any of the remaining 364 days of the year. Especially given you'd be rushing into the relationship at a rapid speed, which is more likely to cause the relationship to fail, if you were to actually have your first date on Valentine's Day

Again don't go too fast just because everyone else is going on a date you should take things slow at first and go at what speed you're both comfortable with First dates are already nerve-racking as it is Valentines makes it even more so.

6 If they're not man and woman, couples get discriminated against

Okay, hear me out: I don't agree with the people who judge these couples (and in all honesty, that's probably partially because I haven't been exposed to this kind of thing yet), nor do I agree with the LGBT, but I can kind of see why these couples are viewed differently than male/female couples. If you have a restaurant packed with couples on Valentine's Day, and they're all man and woman, and then two guys come walking in, holding hands, there's bound to be at least a few people wondering what went wrong with raising those two, although the world has become more accepting since 2012 or so.

honestly you do you.. whatever makes people happy let them be. Don't bother them if they aren't bothering you discrimination is unnecessary especially nowadays like just No

7 Secret admirers are essentially stalkers

Am I seriously the only person who thinks this way? I know it's a kind of dark way of putting it, but the only differences are people, especially females, gush over having a secret admirer, but they are understandably creeped out by having a stalker. Secret admirers follow the person they are admiring as secretly as possible (hence they are "secret admirers"), and they are typically are those clingy guys who have had their eyes set on a certain girl, although five or six percent of men have stalkers. On Valentine's Day, these creeps get free passes. Disgusting

8 Seeing boring romantic movies in theaters with your date

Okay, sure, there are more impressive things you can do with your special someone, but given everyone is headed to fancy restaurants like moths to the flame, sometimes this is your best option.

Instead of boring romance movies, I would much rather see an exciting action movie.

9 The origins of the holiday are quite disturbing

From February 13th to February 15th, the Romans celebrated "the feast of Lupercalia." Sound weird, to begin with, but men sacrificed goats and dogs during the feast, and then they would proceed beat women with the hides of the dogs and goats they killed. The weird part about this is the women would actually get in lines for this abuse, as it was thought that it would make them more fertile. But the weirdest part is how Valentine's Day got its name: the Ronan Emperor, Claudius VII executed two men named Valentine on February 14th. So, how did it get all about love?

Okay, this is truly messed up. Imagine wanting to get abused for no reason. Much worse than breakups.

10 Cupid is almost evil

We see him as a cute baby who flies around wearing a diaper, and shooting lovebirds in a comical way in the modern world, but Cupid was not anything cute or funny when he first showed up. In Greek and Roman mythology, Cupid was the god of desire, but he flipped sides based on stories. Cupid was the god of love, shooting arrows at people to make them fall in love, like he does these days, but sometimes in the myths, Cupid was also a rather sinister god who made people lovesick from unrequited love.

The Contenders
11 It’s just a corporate cash grab

If you think about it, it's not much of a surprise. If it's a holiday with peculiar mascots like Christmas, Halloween, New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day (duh) and Easter, they're all overly commercial. Valentine's Day is the third most corrupt national holiday out there, being beaten only by Halloween and Christmas.

I'm one of those,I'm sure you heard before, that thinks I shouldn't be told I need to express my love on a certain day. I try to express my love for my wife one way or another every single day. Now with that being said, I do celebrate it so I don't end up "in the doghouse".

12 The amount of chocolate bought by Americans on Valentine's Day is almost half as heavy as the Titanic

The Titanic weighed 115.3 million pounds, which is quite an impressive vessel, especially for its time. The amount of chocolate bought for Valentine's Day is roughly 58 million pounds of chocolate per year, and while this is an impressive accomplishment for Americans, even if it's not something we're aware of, but the issue with this incredible amount of chocolate is not only is it not exactly a healthy diet, but most of it won't be consumed. Waste of time and money.

13 Not receiving Valentine's cards in your classroom

Especially when you learn the miserable revelation that this is only done in elementary school.

14 Valentine's Day is becoming more sexualized

Um, yeah...long story short, this is actually quite the problem. I'm gonna keep your innocent minds innocent and not explain why.

15 Bad tasting chocolate gifts

I mean...that's kind of subjective. Most people I know hate dark chocolate, but some don't.

16 All your friends ditch you for their dates
17 Oversized stuffed animals that won't fit in your bedroom door
18 Not receiving any kind of gift, even if you give something away

To be honest, there are worse things, but okay.

19 Loneliness
