Contrary to common perception, single people don’t tend to wallow around in their PJs eating ice-cream (or if they do, it’s not *because* they’re single). But if ever there was an occasion to break out the Ben and Jerry’s, it’s the countdown to Valentine’s Day.

This annual festival of mass-produced romance love is pretty much guaranteed to make single people feel bad about themselves. Everywhere you go, garish hearts and sappy sentiments follow, in a consumerist frenzy that seems entirely blind to the fact that a.) Many people are genuinely happier alone and b.) a teddy bear bearing the slogan “Be Mine” is hardly the key to lust-fuelled passion in any case.

As for being alone on V-Day itself, it’s surely better than simpering over a plate of underdone spaghetti, with the weight of expectation looming unbearably large between you and your amour (it’s no coincidence that many couples fight on this day of ultimate romantic pressure).

So, if you feel as cynical as we do about the approach of cupid’s calendar highlight, take heart in our pick of classic anti-Valentine’s cards. From the heartwarming to the hilarious, these on-point greetings are everything you need to reclaim your single life in style:
