Whether you're in a relationship or single, expectations are too high when Valentine's Day rolls around. Everything is weighted with too much meaning, too much strong-arming from the gods of paper hearts, which is why the only Valentine you need this year is the outrageously and contagiously positive Canadian Instagram star Donte Colley.
Donté Colley is a force on YouTube, by way of simple, peppy dance-move videos littered with emojis that make you feel like you can walk on air, and he counts stars like Leslie Jones and Busy Phillips among his fans. By now, you may have been tagged by a friend on one of his Instagram posts — he has taken the internet by storm. His videos offer messages that might seem trite, were they not delivered by a twerking man in an unassuming apartment with an absolute hurricane of conviction. His affirming vids have been embraced by the youths, and now they're here for us, the people too busy pouring our love into little people and compromising our plans for world domination as we rush out to an early pickup to affirm ourselves.
By day, Colley is a student at the University of Guelph Humber; by night, he's the Valentine we all need. So it's time he storms the chambers of our love muscle, as well. (Not that love muscle, you perverts. The one in our chests.)
Here's why you need to either give or receive a good Colley video this Valentine's Day.
