Valentine's Day is creepy

Prove it with some of this eerily-suitable cards.

There’s something about syrupy sweet about Valentine’s Day that begs you to be subversive. Huge boxes of chocolate need some cayenne pepper. Romantic movies need a follow up with too many kids, boredom and midlife crises. But most of all, adorable Valentine’s messages need some implication of murder and cannibalism.

Good luck we have history to look towards to find our Valentine’s Day sadism.

Women: Alone again on Valentine's Day?

Be sad! says Hollywood

Almost every movie or television show I’ve ever seen gives women who are alone on Valentine’s Day a sad trombone. Wah-wah. We’ve seen the working woman who is alone on Valentine’s Day because she’s such a bitch; the sad woman who has been dumped because she’s so dopey; the woman too mousy and frumpy to even turn the losers’ heads. Valentine’s Day is the perfect framework for punishing single women on-screen.

Valentine Astrology: Why you should never get married on Valentine's Day!

There's a reason September and October are coveted times for marrying. These months contain dates in the Libra season. In astrology, Libra is the sun sign of love and partnership.

When is Valentine's Day? It falls during the time of Aquarius. Just so you know, the sun sign of Aquarius is the MOST emotionally detached sun energy in the entire Zodiac. If you marry during this time, be prepared for your marriage to become rather cold and devoid of lovey-dovey closeness. When an event is laden with Aquarius energy, there might arise confusion over how to express or even acknowledge emotion.

Valentine's Day Isn't About How Much Money You Spend.

With a little imagination and creativity, you can make your sweetie happy without breaking the bank.

It's February, which means it's again that time of the year: the time to show your significant other exactly how much he or she means to you.  Depending on the relationship this can mean jewelry, lingerie, roses, chocolate, perfume or cologne, or a romantic dinner out. Whichever you choose, you can be certain that the price for these things goes up -- way up. In some, cities the price of roses doubles. And so, does the price of chocolates, if only because it is encased in a heart-shaped box.
