The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

Eating a lot of string cheese? Listening to a lot of Adele? Then you must be celebrating “Anti-Valentines Day!”

Step away from social media immediately! Posting excessively on social media can result in side effects such as self-pity, romanticizing relationships, failing to be witty or sarcastic.

Seek medical help if attention-seeking worsens. Do not drive or operate machinery as it will probably result in you crying into your string cheese and cronut while driving.

Talk to your bestie, therapist – or pharmacist – to learn more about what it means to hold your own, to love yourself and to be okay with being alone.

The worst thing about Valentine’s Day for single people is everyone else’s social media posts. It’s like Coachella for couples: pictures, pictures, pictures – or it didn’t happen. Although it does smell better than Coachella.

Always keep in mind, social media perpetuates fakeness. We all know relationships are not all “I love you bae,” and rom-com dates.

Valentine’s Day might be romantic for couples, but not everyone wants to celebrate the holiday of love—especially when their single. To juxtapose Valentine’s Day, the day is now also known as “Singles Awareness Day.” Note the acronym for that one: SAD. I mean, it’s right there!

For those who are not in relationships, or recently went through a break up, the below list is for you.

Anti-Valentine’s Day quotes, and music. Filled with a little humor, sarcasm, and pessimism. The perfect combination for non-lovers!

-Carla Rea

  • "Being single is pretty good. It's a nice sense of irresponsibility."

    Michael Douglas. Probably when he was single.

    Valentines day

  • "Somebody That I Used To Know" - Gotye

    A bare-bones, beautiful track, all about full-on heartache – albeit of the dismissive, screw-you-I’m-fine variety!

  • "Roses are red. Violets are blue. Vodka is cheaper than dinner for two."

    “Unknown” said this. Unknown was very smart.

    Anti-Valentines day

  • "Forget You" - Cee Lo Green

    The real title of this song says it even better! Still starts with an F…

  • "Oh here's an idea: Let's make pictures of our internal organs and give them to other people we love on Valentine's Day. That's not weird at all."

    Very true – thank you Jimmy Fallon!

    Anti-Valentines Day

  • "Someone Like You" - Adele

    Adele basically wrote the book on tear-filled breakup ballads. ‘Someone Like You,’ is Adele at her most defeated and desperate as she attempts to reconnect with a lost love. Cause we’ve NEVER done that, have we?

  • "I wish I were a little girl again, because skinned knees are easier to fix than a broken heart."

    From the Pretty Woman herself, Julia Roberts

    Anti-Valentines Day

  • "Gives You Hell" - The All-American Rejects -

    If The All-American Rejects taught us anything, it’s that it can be okay to not wish someone well. Where’s your picket fence, love???

  • "Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke."

    Lynda Barry, is quite right! Lynda is an amazing, and unusual cartoonist – best known for her weekly comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek.

    Anti Valentines Day

  • "We Are Never Ever Getting Back together" - Taylor Swift

    Taylor Swift said this song was inspired by an unwanted studio run-in with an ex’s friend. “He made some comment about how he heard how I was gonna get back together with my ex. And after he left I was talking to my producers and was like, ‘We are never ever getting back together!’ she said at the time. “And after that happened I just grabbed my guitar.”  The hook is so contagious, you can’t get it out of your head no matter how hard you try – congratulations Taylor!.

  • "Valenties Day? Chin up - February 15 is half-price candy day!”

    Carla Rea – and so many others!

    Carla Rea

  • "You Oughta Know" Alanis Morissette

    I suppose for many women, it’s the ultimate breakup song. Cheers!
