Still waiting for Cupid: Singles reflect on Valentine’s Day

by CJ Fiala, Carol Lucarelli–

Every year, Valentine’s Day brings a roller coaster of emotions along with the flowers, chocolates and cards. We are often reminded of the loved ones in our lives, or for those that are single, they are reminded of just how single they are.

We asked singles to reflect on their own feelings about Valentine’s Day. The News Feed Reporter CJ Fiala asked members of the Virginia Tech community at Turner Place to share some of their own thoughts. Answers varied drastically with some singles embracing the joy that other happy couples bring to the world on this holiday, while others look forward to the discounted price on chocolate the next day. Being single for Valentine’s Day most certainly has its pros and cons. Regardless if you are single or taken this Valentine’s Day, from all of us at the News Feed we wish you a happy Valentine’s Day.
