13 Brutally Honest Valentine’s Day Cards Guaranteed to Keep You Single Forever

What may be the most polarizing Hallmark holiday — ever — is right around the corner.

What is supposed to be a day of warmth and happiness is also highly commercialized, and somehow always ends up being one of stress and fear — even for happily married couples.

Whether you adore or loathe the day when people across America celebrate their love with cuddly teddy bears, crimson roses, chocolate kisses and candlelit dinners for two, there’s no escaping it. Some people choose to play it safe during this corporate-sponsored time of the year and make the reservations or buy the cards and chocolate. Others want to buck the trend, but invariably do something sweet for their loved one nevertheless. Whatever your choice, it’s important to know that just like every year and just like every holiday, there are, of course, alternative Valentine’s Day options abound.

Since the majority of Valentine’s Day cards never seem to truly capture what you’re really trying to say, we’ve created some greetings that express the awkward, vulnerable, and not-so-nice truths in relationships.

So, if you happen to feel pressured to say something to someone just because it’s Valentine’s Day, here are 13 brutally honest Valentine’s Day cards to have some fun with this year.
