Valentine's Day is one of those holidays you either love or hate, and if you hate it, chances are you call this day by a different name entirely — Singles Awareness Day. Don't worry, you're not the only one. These Singles Awareness Day memes show that there is a huge, wide corner of the Internet that hates Feb. 14 just as much as you do, and it's getting creative in the name of solidarity. Hey, Valentine's Day can't exactly be avoided, but it's probably better to laugh about it rather than hide yourself in your room all day with nothing but your rage and love-peppered newsfeed to keep you company, am I right?
And honestly, what's so terrible about being single, anyway? Let the couples have their day of overpriced dinners and ridiculous expectations. You don't need some absurdly large plush teddy bear to know that you are loved. It may seem cathartic to aggressively roll your eyes at every couple you see proclaiming their love on Facebook, but singles can have just as great a holiday as their loved up counterparts. Singles Awareness Day? Let's try Singles Appreciation Day. I like the sound of that much better. Let these memes help you crack a smile.

Probably best to just stay off Facebook today.
And you know what? I think I prefer it that way.
