10 Valentine’s Day ‘In the Real World’ Memes to Share Right Now

Valentine's Day isn't always all hearts and flowers. It's time to get real.

Sometimes love is temporary. But, internet memes? Well, those last forever. While Hallmark would have you believe that Valentine’s Day is all hearts and roses, sometimes, you just gotta keep it real.
