My least favorite day of the year is quickly approaching, Valentine's Day. Am I a bitter single girl who hates Valentine's Day? Possibly. Do I hate Valentine's Day because I hate seeing happy couples while I'm eating chocolate alone? Pretty much. However, this year I gained a new perspective on my least favorite day of the year. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I need to take advantage of the perfect man who is standing right in front of me. This perfect man happens to be my dog. Here are some reasons why your dog is the perfect date for Valentine's Day.

1. They're always excited to see you.

Dogs make for a great V Day date because they're always happy when you come home. I mean, what's better than coming home to an excited, happy dog?

2. You don't have to get them a present.

Let's be honest, saving money is the best. All you have to give your dog as a gift for Valentine's Day is love and a belly rub.

3. There are no expectations for romantic gestures.


You don't expect red roses or a cheesy card from your dogs, but you can expect tons of puppy kisses.

4. They won't judge you if you cry while watching romcoms.

You can show your true emotions to your dog when watching "The Notebook" and sobbing uncontrollably. Also, they will more than likely comfort you when you're upset, and how perfect is that?

You never have to worry about having someone to cuddle with when your dog is around. Also, their fluffiness is perfect for cuddling and petting.
