7 Reasons Valentine’s Day is the Most Disappointing Holiday (with GIFS)

Spoiler alert: This isn’t the year that Ryan Gosling professes his love for you.

Ever since I was kid, I always built up Valentine’s Day to be this magical holiday where anything could happen. It starts in kindergarten, when you put out your little shoebox, decorated in pink paper and red doily hearts, and hope that the love of your life drops an extra Scooby Doo Valentine card in it so you know that they feel the same way. Fast forward to high school, and you’re convinced that this is the year your crush will bust into history class with a balloon bouquet and a choir behind him, declaring his love for you. Sadly, these things don’t usually happen outside of Glee, leaving most of us disappointed every February 14th. Below we’ve listed our Vday expecations vs what really happens. Check it out and let us know if you agree!
