Expectations vs Reality: Valentine’s Day

Oh, Valentine’s Day. We meet again. With all the heart shaped balloons, those darn good heart shaped frosted sugar cookies, and the abundance of red & pink flowers that are filling the stores, (I REPEAT, I LIKE TULIPS) it’s no wonder why there is so much hype for this holiday. It seems like a lot of people have such high expectations for Valentine’s Day, but in all honesty…what is the fuss?? Let’s get real here: 

1. Expectation: Spending v-day with your soulmate.
