There's really no easy way around it — being a singleton on Valentine's Day is generally, less than pleasant. Between your family asking you about your love life as they do on every other national holiday, your coworkers asking you about your plans, and the entire world being covered in pink and red, it's hard to escape the idea that love is in the air and you're just suffocating. Luckily, as usual, the internet comes through for single folks with Valentine's Day memes for single people. Because if you're going to be alone on Valentine's Day, you might as well get a laugh out of it and enjoy yourself.
Whether you're stinging from a breakup, feeling lonely, or waiting for someone to call you, the following memes pretty much cover every angle of single life on Valentine's Day. So you can scroll through these expertly (and cynically) crafted memes when you're feeling inundated with the world of conversation hearts and flower deliveries to escape the inevitable feelings of forever alone on the most celebrated romantic holiday of the year. And just remember, if you're feeling alone, you're not really alone, because I'm here with you. And so are these memes.
1For The 'Star Wars' Fiends
Honestly though, is there a better way to spend Valentine's Day than with '80s Harrison Ford? Me thinks not.
2For The Foodies
This is me. This is so very me. Heart-shaped pizzas are child's play when you've got Chrissy Teigen's cookbook and the notion to treat your self.
4For The Smart Singles
There's no chance of disappointment if you have a date with your couch, am I right?
5For Those Who Need A Cocktail
In college, I remember diligently celebrating V-is-for-Vodka-Day instead of Valentine's Day. Who needs roses when you've got a martini?
6For The Brave Solo Diners
Just because it's Valentine's Day doesn't mean you can't take yourself out for a night on the town, at this table for one.
7For Those Who Look On The Bright Side
Wouldn't you rather be alone than in a miserable relationship? Bright side, friends, bright side.
8For The Schrute Lovers
Yes, Dwight Schrute is my date for Valentine's Day. I'll be enjoying his comedic stylings via Netflix.
9For The Hopeful
At least if you're alone, there's nobody to see your face fall when it's really the wrong number.
11For The Dairy Lovers
The harsh reality reminder of your milk jug might send you running to the land o' memes to laugh your tears away.
12For Those Looking For Love
I mean, if you're secretly in love with me, you're more than welcome to tell me any time. But sooner is better than later, because of chocolate.
13For The Practical
Yes, nerds are your best friend to combat this "love is in the air" nonsense this Valentine's Day.
