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.
When people complain about not seeing their boyfriend/girlfriend and it’s only been a few days:
Jealously (and drunkenly) looking at couples post perfect pictures of their dinner dates:
How romantic it is when the wifi drops out during Facetime:
Snuggling with your pets and pretending they’re a person:
Bitterly walking past couples on your way to the nearest packy for cheap wine:
While you love saving money on presents….
…you also hate not receiving any:
Sending so many emoji kisses instead of being able actually kiss:
NOT HAVING TO SHAVE:
(Just don’t wear capris to the gym…)
Spending Valentine’s Day with the true love of your life… your mom:
Realizing how difficult it is to be sexy via text:
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.
