This is the difference between being single and taken on V-Day.


Single vs Taken on Valentine’s Day


Out of all the holidays, Valentine’s Day seems to be the day that inspires the most rage. No emotion is as strong as love is and a day that is all about love (and Hallmark) is obviously going to inspire strong emotions into people.

The interesting thing about Valentine’s Day is how differently it is celebrated between two segments of society, the single person and the taken person. I have composed a simple list to highlight the differences between how single people and taken people view and celebrate Valentine’s Day.
