Anti-Valentine's Day Sentiment

But for some people, Valentine's Day isn't all about chocolate, teddy bears, roses and diamonds. Some believe Valentine's Day is yet another over-hyped, commercialized holiday that really has nothing to do with love at all. It's about the almighty dollar.

And for some single people, Valentine's Day is a reminder of being alone in a couple's world. While some may embrace being single, it can also be a difficult time for folks who are alone.

Singles Awareness Day

It's the perfect day to embrace the most important person in your life - you! In honor of Singles Awareness Day, check out the silly, serious and sentimental quotes and sayings for singles.
