Being Single on Valentine’s Day


Sophie Capparelli, Staff Writer

Ah, Valentine’s Day.  A day devoted to celebrate couples and partners all around the world. “I love you’s” fill the air along with chocolate caramels. You can also spend it with loved ones like your parents, friends, or in Brooklyn Heim’s case, her cat. But, there are lonely, single people on this planet too. Freshman Maia Egan, freshman Abby English, and freshman Brooklyn Heim opened up their feeling about this mushy holiday. English said “It’s not a holiday!” All though many people go out to dinner or watch the classic V day movies like The Notebook; Egan, English, and Heim all agreed it’s better to spend this holiday with themselves eating on sale chocolate and binge watching their favorite Netflix series. Many single people do not look forward to this holiday. As it brings them sadness and pain to see couples around every corner. English is actually looking forward to this date because candy is on sale.  English also said that it really doesn’t make a difference to her whether she is single or not. Heim, on the other hand, wishes she could spend Valentine’s Day with a special someone nicknamed Don. As a matter of fact, they all like to be single rather than not. “Then I don’t have to expect stuff from other people” Egan said about being single.
“Valentine’s Day is for couples. Us SINGLES have the other 364 days of the year to enjoy ourselves!” – Unknown
