Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and stores are filling up with flowers, cards, and candy galore. Whether you’re a true romantic or a V-Day hater, there is no escaping the holiday. Thankfully, there are lots of funny Valentine’s Day memes to poke fun at this saccharine day and bring a laugh to singles and couples alike.

Drawing on pop culture references and the Internet's particular brand of humor, these memes perfectly parody the typical Valentine’s Day cards, or at least express sentiments that many people feel this time of year. (I mean, who doesn’t look forward to discount candy on Feb. 15?) And like any collection of memes, some are clever, some are cute, and some are just out there (in the best possible way).

So if you need a refuge from the onslaught of cutesy cards and sweet sentiments, these memes can help give you a breather and a laugh. And although many memes run their course in a matter of weeks or even days, there’s something about the spot-on Valentine's Day parody that has some real staying power. You can even share a V-Day meme with your own Valentine if so inspired. After all, nothing says “I love you!” like sharing something funny from the Internet.
