It's Valentine’s Day, a holiday that is also known as the bane of my existence. I’m sure many of my fellow single people out there can relate, as can couples who are totally over this holiday altogether. To unite us in solidarity, these anti-Valentine’s Day memes will make you feel better about suffering through another Feb. 14. I mean, it’s coming whether we like it or not.

Regardless of your relationship status, Valentine’s Day can definitely be a downer. All that commercialized “love” floating around can make even the strongest of couples feel somewhat suffocated. (Obviously, I am not a fan, in case you couldn’t tell.) This year, why let yourself get sucked into a vortex of overpriced chocolate, wine, and irritation? Valentine’s Day is ridiculous, and while you may not feel like celebrating, you can at least crack a smile.

So let the Valentine’s Day blues flow over you one last time as you read through these anti-Valentine’s Day memes. Then get up, put on an outfit you love, find friends who share your anti-Valentine's Day sentiments, and have the time of your life this weekend. After all, there's no avoiding Valentine's Day. You might as well have a laugh.

My DMs are open.

It’s on, Ticketmaster.
