Yes, I know. Valentine’s Day is a manufactured holiday, concocted by corporate interests to manipulate some of humanity’s deepest and most valuable emotions — as well as people’s anxieties about those emotions — in order to sell candy, cards, lingerie, jewelry, vacations, and more.

Saw this on a Huffington Post piece, 21 Awkward Valentine’s Day Cards For Your Confusing Modern Relationship, and couldn’t resist.
Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetie!
