It’s that time of year again when we totally reevaluate our love life – or lack thereof – and hate everyone around us. We have high hopes of what the day will bring. We have incredible expectations. And then real life happens.
1. Finding a Date
Expectation: Some mysterious, sexy secret admirer comes out of the woodwork and whisks us off our feet
Real Life: Everyone else has already been coupled off
Expectation: Everyone is paired off so perfectly
Real Life: Everyone is grossly paired off so perfectly that you want to vomit
3. The gifts
Expectation: Dozens of flowers show up at work, surprise chocolates delivered throughout the day and a new, little kitten waiting for you when you get home from work
Reality: You’re sneaking around stealing chocolates off other people’s desks at work
Expectation: A sweet date, at a trendy restaurant that your significant other reserved months ago as an overly romantic gesture
Real Life: You’re eating pizza… on the couch… by yourself
Expectation: You're happily in love with the most perfect partner, smiling from ear to ear and always light-hardheartedly laughing
Real Life: Food is love and love is food. That's it.
