This Lord of the Rings meme kinda hurts.
If you don't have a partner, then you know what to expect for Valentine's Day: nothing.
But if you are with someone, hopefully, you'll have a romantic day full of chocolate, heart, and love. But life doesn't always go to plan and for some people, Valentine's Day turned out to be far from the romantic day they had planned. These horror stories show that sometimes life can throw you a curveball when you least expect it; from being dumped via text, or getting food poisoning at your date's house, these tales will make you feel better about yourself whether you're single or attached.
Happy Valentine's Day! Today we celebrate love in all forms and it's a beautiful thing. When it comes to the love department, one source of inspiration I like to turn to is my favorite sitcom, "The Office". Not only is it is brilliantly genius, but a lesser-known fact about the show is how many pearls of wisdom on love and relationships it actually contains. Here are some of the most profound quotes from Michael Scott and his crew that teach us all the important lessons we need to know about love.
Oh and if you love the Dunder Mifflin crew as much as me, check out our previous post on Couples From "The Office" Who Inspire True Love?
Relationships aren't what they used to be. Somehow TV love seemed purer back in the '90s; something that was longer-lasting. I guess that's because there wasn't Tinder back then to screw everything up. As Valentine's Day approaches, let's use this Throwback Thursday to cast our minds back to a time when sitcoms showed true and lasting love in all its glory.
"Is there a typo in the title? Don't you mean Valentine's Day", I'm hearing you ask?
Nope - Galentine's Day is a concept, or holiday, created by Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec. It takes place on February 13, when, in her words, "My lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas."
So basically, it's a time for us babes to kick it back at brunch while celebrating ourselves and each other, and telling Valentine's Day to do one. Sounds pretty good to me! In the spirit of this great day, here are some of the best Galentine's Day tweets on the internet; inspired by Leslie Knope's genius, empowering women the world over, and giving strong female friendships the credit they deserve.
The world of dating and relationships is an absolute minefield. Between mustering up the strength to go on yet another Bumble date and trying your hardest to not f*ck it up if you manage to find someone you like and who likes you, it's a lot of work. Love certainly isn't for the faint-hearted. No one can really prove whether women have it harder than men, but the female population certainly has their own set of struggles. In honor of Valentine's Day coming up, here are some all-too-relatable tweets that accurately describe the world of love, dating and everything in between for women.
Valentine's Day is a day to tell you the person you love (or casually sleeping with) how you truly feel about them. But sometimes it's hard to articulate your emotions and these eCards do a great job at expressing the things that we wish we could say, but can't. You know, because social conventions and all that. And who knows, they might even inspire you to make a declaration of love (or lust) to your special someone this Valentine's Day.
"The Office" is, in my opinion, one of the best sitcoms to have ever been created. A show that has become a household classic, we have been blessed with nine seasons of laugh-out-loud, cringeworthy and heart-warming moments. Its genius lies in the way we get to know and fall in love with the characters and their idiosyncrasies as the show progresses. From Jim and Dwight's constant pranking to Michael's compulsive need to be adored by everyone, the characters and their interactions are understandable and relatable to the masses.
But most of all, I think the show is about the complex pursuit of love. "The Office" shows us just how painful but beautiful it can be to find and maintain true, lasting love. In honor of the lead-up to Valentine's Day, here are some of the show's most famous couples' and the journeys they went on to find love with each other.
January is finally over (my god, I thought it would never end!) and the month of love is upon us.
Following the success of my last post about New Year's Resolutions, I'm so excited to share my much-requested tips on how to create the perfect Valentine's Day which requires zero effort from your partner and still gives you everything you want and deserve. But first, here's a quick update on what I've been up to since you last heard from me.
