People are calling for Valentine's Day to be cancelled because they're single

People are calling for Valentine's Day to be cancelled because they're single

It's Valentine's Day, so you know what that means: a bunch of loved-up couples going gooey-eyed at each other.

Or, you have the flip side of things, which is a bunch of sad singles whining because they're alone.

Newsflash, singles: you're lonely every other day of the year, so why is this one any harder?

That being said, this writer might be joining you soon, if the never ending singing card I bought my fiancé is anything to go by.

So it could be worse, single folk. You could be dating me.

Plenty of sad single Pringles have taken to social media to lament the day set aside for lovers.

One person commented: "Valentine's Day is a microaggression against single people."

A second added: "Dear President, please cancel valentine's day. Some of us are single."

A third chipped in with: "Hey I'm single, let's cancel Valentine's Day."

A fourth quipped: "I vote to cancel this year Valentine's day & my birthday as well because I'm single."

Meanwhile, another social media user said: "I hate Valentine’s Day (it’s my first valentines single since I was 15) we should cancel it this year! (I just want some flowers)."

Someone just send the girl some flowers, for Saint Valentine's sake.

But back to my point: you can't cancel love, losers.

What you can do though is set yourself up for next year.

There's a whole month set aside in the Irish village of Lisdoonvarna.

It has a month-long Match-Making Festival, and if two folk getting frisky on the road last year is anything to go by, it works.

We're sure police are going to urge organisers to pass on the message that it needs to remain pants-on while in public from now on after last year's shenanigans.

The festival has been based in the streets of Lisdoonvarna for more than 160 years and has been responsible for many happy couplings.

Although perhaps not literally coupling right there on the main strip.

So, singles, maybe give that a go or risk crushing loneliness next year as well.

The month-long bash involves the hotels, pubs, and restaurants across the Country Clare village.

Singletons can enjoy days of singing and dancing or meet with third-generation famous Irish matchmaker Willie Daly at the aptly named Matchmaker Bar.

Hopefully, this year saucy singletons will keep it a tad more private in the future.
