Do you hate Valentine’s? That’s okay! Valentine’s is not for everyone; that much is true. In fact, if you’re reading this article, then you’re probably sick of all the Valentine’s Promos that have already started. If the thought of flowers being sold everywhere in the CBD and people dressed in red sickens you, then here are 8 quotes to properly get you into an “anti-Valentine’s” mood.
- Don’t want your heart-broken? Then don’t give it away…
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
― C.S. Lewis
2. For the ladies who love being single…
“If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.”
— Katharine Hepburn
3. For those who believe love is a lie…
“Deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.”
— Oscar Wilde
4. For those who believe love is both good and bad…
“Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.”
― Joan Crawford
5. For those who believe that love makes you gullible…
“You can never be wise and be in love at the same time.”
― Bob Dylan
6. Just in case you needed to say that again… Love makes you gullible…
Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.
―H. L. Mencken
7. Love is nothing but a means to an end.
Love: A dirty trick played on us to achieve continuation of the species.
―W. Somerset Maugham
8. For those who just don’t trust the idea of love.

I don’t feel anti-love. I feel suspicious of love, and I feel suspicious of what it means to be in love. And I also feel suspicious of what it means to feel pretend love for someone.
Try not to sound bitter when quoting these on Valentine’s!
