The true division in America

Ah, Valentines Day. The most divisive holiday of the year. How could the "holiday of lovers" be divisive you say? Well, that's simple... it further divides the single people of the world from the all the couples in the world. Couples already tend to divide themselves from the single people of the world. How many of us have had friends get a bf/gf, and then not see them for months until the relationship is over? Hell, we have all been guilty of this from time to time. When couples go out, they usually try to find other couples to do things with. It's almost as if being single was a disease that they were desperately trying to avoid.

As a single person, there is nothing more annoying than watching couples making out by my coffee stand. On Valentines Day, this effect is amplified all over campus. Couples already have anniversaries and birthdays to show their affection for each other. Why must they have yet another day of the year to celebrate?!?!

So, to Valentines Day I have two words: Screw You. To end this post, I will end with the two most bitter things that come to mind:
1) Most relationships fail within a few months.
2) Half of all marriages end in divorce.
