Try using the arrow keys

Ah, Valentine’s Day. If you’re coupled up, it’s a nice excuse to go out on the town with your honey or send them flowers at the office (why is that considered an appropriate gesture, by the way? That’s their workplace). You could be dating someone or be single but still be totally neutral on the holiday — good for you! What a great chance to binge-watch season two of House of Cards on the very day it’s released. But maybe you’re a tad bitter about all this love business. That’s fine, we all have our things. But stop littering your friends’ newsfeeds with rants about the consumerism and meaninglessness of it all and pick up a good book to commiserate with.
