The 8 Types of People You See on Valentine's Day

The 8 Types of People You See on Valentine's Day


No one hates on Valentine's Day more than single people, and if you have not tricked anyone into loving you this year, you will likely become one of the haterz. Welcome to the club. As the couples line up for their reservations at The Hound and Hamilton's, all of us single people will be over at Skybar dancing the night away and pretending we are not single. Here is a list of the different types of people you will probably see on V-Day.

1. The overly affectionate PDA couple.   

Yuck. Okay, maybe a little PDA is alright but c'mon, do you have to kiss in between every single word? These guys are the ones single people love to hate on the most, probably because its so obvious they are really into each other.

2. The #WCW and #MCM. 

These are the worst. I mean, they are bad enough on Mondays and Wednesdays, but especially on Valentine's Day. These are the people who will be blowing up your Insta newsfeed with every picture they have ever taken with their BF/GF, not to mention exactly what they bought them for Valentine's Day. I am thrilled that you love your BF/GF, but all of the internet does not want to hear every last sappy detail of your relationship. 

3. The couple who just could not handle the pressure.

This would be the couple who comes and meets up with their friends after dinner because something obviously wasn't going right. Usually because the girl had way too high expectations, or he thought he did something really nice and she just didn't notice. Either way, they are the ones that need some help from their friends, so they hop on over to the bars to take a little pressure off themselves. Better luck next year. 

4. The recent break-up.

Bitter ex-lovers. These are the ones you especially do not want to be around on Valentine's Day. They are not quite over their ex and, man, are you going to hear all about it. Beware of the recent break-up. 

5. The singles who are just trying to mingle.

We all know these people, and in all reality, we probably all fit into this category at one point or another. There is nothing wrong with getting out there, gettin' yo flirt on and having a good time. Be careful not to let the fact that it is Valentine's Day, and you may be more lonely than usual, turn you into a thirsty thot. 

6. The two friends who, obviously, have something going on.

These are the people that totally want to be together on Valentine's Day, but haven't  quite figured out how to make it work -- whether it is with a new friend you just discovered you totally have chemistry with, or the one you definitely like, but something is always getting in the way. This one sucks most of all. For whatever reason, they cannot be with their one on Valentine's Day. For that reason alone, you are the real MVP because this night is the worst for you. 

7. The couple just trying to have a good time.

These are the couples that will be downtown hanging with their friends all night, just trying to get their groove on. They don't get caught up in the whole Valentine's Day thing because it just isn't a big deal to them. They just want to get their drank on and have a good night. 

8. The couple completely perfect for each other and might as well already be married. 

These guys are the ones that hold Valentine's Day close to their hearts. This day is totally devoted to their significant other, and all they want to do is spend time together. I mean, you can't even hate on them because these are the people everyone secretly wants to be. So you keep doing you, and go about your day in complete oblivious romantic bliss.

This is them.

This is us.

Regardless of how you spend your Valentine's Day, it is a day set aside to tell the people you love just how much they mean to you. So, go out there and tell them because, after all, they are totally cool.

Sandra Oh was Nominated for an Emmy, and can I just say, It's about time

"Yeah, well, don't write your address on your suitcase in case it gets stolen by a psychopath." -Eve, Killing Eve (2018)


The Emmy's are a time for some of the best shows and performances of the year to get honored. This year, a handful of my favorites were up for nomination. "Black Mirror," "Portlandia," "Bob's Burgers," and actress Sandra Oh.

Sandra Oh was nominated for best lead actress in a drama series for "Killing Eve"; the first woman of Asian descent to ever be nominated for this category! Although, this isn't her first time being nominated. She was previously nominated five times for supporting actress for "Grey's Anatomy"––she never won.

I am a huge "Grey's Anatomy" fan. So you're telling me, after Sandra Oh's character, Christina Yang, had suffered an ectopic pregnancy which almost killed her, being left at the altar by Burke, suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after having a gun held to her head in the midst of trying to save Derek, gets cheated on by Hunt, goes through a divorce, survives a plane crash but watched her friends and colleagues die, and not to mention she deserved to win that Harper Avery award but didn't; you're telling me after all these extraordinary performances she didn't win at all? Not one of the five times? Unbelievable.

Although it won't be for "Grey's Anatomy" this time, it's about time Sandra Oh gets the recognition she deserves. Sandra Oh departed from Grey's Anatomy after season ten and has since grabbed viewers' attention for her role in "Killing Eve," the show that she is being nominated for. This show centers around Sandra Oh's character, Eve, a desk-bound M15 officer who finds herself in the midst of a cat and mouse game with an assassin. If you need a new show to watch, this is an intriguing one to start.

To think, Sandra Oh is the FIRST actress of Asian descent to be nominated for this category. It's 2018, and I can't emphasize enough how much representation matters. Growing up as an Asian-American, I found it hard to resonate with characters of Asian descent who fit the stereotypical identity that everyone makes assumptions about. That wasn't who I was, nor did I want to be. Hollywood has created a narrative around Asians and Asian-Americans to fit a typecast for films and television shows but I for one believe Sandra Oh has defied that logic. She's brilliant and has proven viewers everywhere the hardworking, versatile actress she can be. From the principal in "Princess Diaries" to a dedicated cardiothoracic surgeon on "Grey's Anatomy" to an M15 officer trying to find an assassin, the limit does not exist.

The lack of Asian descents taking home the famous statue has only been numbered down to two and let's be honest here, there needs to be a change. As much as the internet pushed for Leonardo DiCaprio to finally win that Oscar he deserved, we need to push for Sandra Oh to break the internet and give her the Emmy she deserves.
