So, Valentine’s Day is just about upon us. Have you been conned into buying outrageously expensive roses and chocolates for your other half? Many have chucked in the greeting card holiday and spent the cash on something they actually want.

Luckily for us, the good folk over at the Daily Edge have reminded us of the reality of most Valentine’s Days. Nice one.

Sometimes people just want to profess their love for pizza and that’s fine too.
