Loveless: Opting out on Valentine’s Day
Valentines Day can spike a feeling of loneliness for those not in a relationship, hence the reason Anti-Valentine’s Day parties came about.
And, for those people who feel lonely on such a romantic holiday, some of them have decided to band together to celebrate their own way with their own parties.
Anti-Valentines Day parties and what they entail vary depending on the people hosting. Generally, it consists of decorations saying phrases such as “love stinks” and food that aims to abolish the idea of Valentine’s Day.
Others take a different route from the celebratory tone by doing everything someone might do if they had a partner, such as watching romantic movies or eating chocolate, but they instead take part in these activities alone.
