It's that time of year again where red hearts and roses are as far as the eye can see and seemingly every couple starts competing for who can be most cringe-worthy on our socials. So for anyone enduring February 14, solo—here are the best single Valentine's Day memes to give you a laugh...

While many are out there excitedly planning their Valentine's Day outfits and getting their new Valentine's Day-themed nail art done, there's another demographic who might be finding this day downright torturous. Because really, is there anything worse than seeing all your friends post loved-up tributes to their "rock" or "soulmate"? *Shudder*

For anyone not feeling romantically inclined this month, social media can really become a cliche-filled minefield. It's enough to make you just want to lie down in your comfiest loungewear and have an Elle Woods moment by hurling half-eaten heart-shaped chocolates at the best rom-coms on TV.

So, for those who need a little rest bite from all the mushy stuff, here's a roundup of all the funniest Single Valentine's Day memes, to hopefully help crack a smile...
