As Valentine's Day approaches, everyone sees the chocolate displays and the overflowing shelves of stuffed animals. They smell the overpowering scent of every flower in existence while at the grocery store and struggle to find a candy bar that is not heart-shaped. All of these sights and experiences grow to be quite irritating for all the lonely souls out there as they rush to the self-checkout all alone. They persist in fighting against the urge to buy those overpriced Dove chocolates after all and just for their sweet Valentine: themselves.

So, without further ado, here is the perfect playlist for all of you looking to sulk your way through Valentine's Day.

1. "La Vie En Rose" by Daniela Andrade

The French phrase 'la vie en rose' directly translates to 'life in pink'. All singles' lives are drowned in pink packaging around this time of year, so in a way you're living your own 'life in pink'. I suppose it isn't the exact same...

2. "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Dave Thomas Junior

No, you can't make them love you if they don't, BUT what if you have no one to begin with? You've lucked out, my friend!

3. "The Night We Met" by Lord Huron

Correction: "The Night You Met Nobody"

4. "I Want To Know What Love Is" by Foreigner

This is a classic song for a classic cry. Grab your tissues now.

5. "Someone You Loved" by Lewis Capaldi

Not only is Capaldi's voice gonna make you weep, but so is the fact that the word 'loved' is most definitely in past tense.

6. "Where's My Love" by SYML

... I feel as though the title is self-explanatory.

7. "Almost Lover" by A Fine Frenzy

The key word here is 'almost'.

8. "Love Stinks" by J. Geils Band

Yes, yes it does stink, and we are here for it.

9. "Hello" by Adele

What would I be doing if Adele, the queen of wallowing, didn't make it on this playlist? Listen and weep, my friends.

10. "All By Myself" by Celine Dion

Celine Dion always makes for a good sob session, right? All. By. Yourself.

11. "Landfill" by Daughter

Literally, the first line of this song is "throw me in the landfill". I suppose you may very well feel like trash right now...

12. "Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran

Oh, Ed... Please, give these people love.

13. "Love Song" by Sara Bareilles

OK, OK, for your last song, let's get a little bit more joyous, shall we? This song is upbeat, it's catchy, and you can relate to Sara Bareilles. She didn't want to write a love song and you don't have anyone to write a love song about.

Happy Valentine's Day, all you crazy singles! Just be glad you don't have to share your chocolates.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
