Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. I’m well aware that this is an unpopular opinion. One of the reasons it’s my favorite is because of a tradition that started back in high school.
No, I didn’t have a secret admirer profess their love for me on Valentine’s Day or anything else super sweet to make me love this day forever. It is actual the complete opposite. My bestie, Shan, and I were hella bitter about dudes and we started making mix CDs each year for Valentine’s Day entitled It Sucks to Be Single. You can read more about the origin story here.
Last year we brought this tradition back with a slightly different twist. Instead of focusing on how terrible it is being single we wanted to inspire some hope and to reassure our younger selves that it’s really not that bad.
We are ready to unveil this year’s masterpiece. Our anti anti-Valentine’s Day playlist. Celebrating unrequited love, breakups, and everything in between.
