25 Thoughts Every Single New Yorker Has On Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day is coming up, which means it’s time for all the single people to brood over their single-ness. Here are 25 thoughts every single New Yorker has on Valentine’s day:


1. It’s just an ordinary day. No big deal.

2. Maybe I’ll go out tonight and have a date with myself.

3. Let me just check Twitter…

4. *Sees all the Valentine’s Day Content*


5. Let me just check Facebook…

6. *Sees disgustingly cute pictures of friends in relationships*

7. I think I’ll stay away from social media today.

8. And I should probably avoid the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, and all other romantic locations.
