No matter how hard you may try, you can’t ignore Valentine’s Day. The greeting card aisle has been flaunting pink and red since Christmas, practically begging you to scoop up a handful of mushy cards to dole out. But what about Valentine’s Day cards for single people?
I’m not going to lie to you, Valentine’s Day can be hard out there for a single lady. Depending on your current state of relationship, it can be daunting, devastating, and downright depressing. On the other hand, it can be obnoxious. Sometimes, it’s just annoying to see the flower deliveries rolling in for everyone but you. And all the people holding hands? Don’t even get me started on the amount of unsolicited PDA that gets thrown around on Valentine’s Day. What about us singletons? Sure, maybe you don’t need flowers, or a box of chocolates, or someone to hold your hand.
That’s where Valentine’s Day cards for single people come into play. Cards are nice. Cards are thoughtful. Cards have gotten crazy witty over the last decade. Cards can remind you that love is love, whether it's romantic, platonic, or otherwise. So whether you’re a single lady presenting another single lady with a card, or you’re in a steady relationship and looking for a card to give to your single friend to remind them that even though they might be alone, they’re not really alone, this list is here to save the day.
