Celebrating Valentine’s Day in a LDR

February 14th: the infamous date that is hated by singles and loved by lovers. But what happens when your Valentine is in another state or even country? When you’re in a LDR, or long distance relationship, Valentine’s Day becomes an emotional and complex holiday that can only be described in one way: through gifs, of course.

Spending Valentine’s Day with the true love of your life… your mom:

Shamelessly releasing all your emotions at the gym (which will be absolutely empty, by the way):

After a day filled with Barefoot and bear hugs from mom, you realize how materialistic Valentine’s Day has become. You two don’t need store bought roses or Russel Stover’s. You simply have each other, and that’s all you need.
