Being single has its perks. It's definitely much better to be on your own than to settle for any old person out there just because you don't want to deal with the social shame, stigma, or plain discomfort of not having a romantic partner in your life.
Because as painful as it is being alone, being stuck with someone you're not absolutely in love with is, in the long run, much, much worse.
Especially if you're looking forward to Valentine's day and out of nowhere they go and get you one of these lame gifts.
What a waste of good chocolate.
