Valentine’s Day is next weekend, so it’s only fitting to share this hilariousness. Cuz boyyyyy do things change!
1. Valentine’s Day Cards
At 10: You get a card from everyone in class featuring your favorite people and characters.
At 20: People mask their increasing bitterness with layers of sarcasm and irony.
At 30: You send a text with ~dirty~ emojis.
2. Candy Hearts
At 10: You’ll eat anything that’s made of sugar, even if it kinda sorta definitely tastes like chalk.
At 20: You give “jokey” candies to mask your fear of rejection and protect your poor, vulnerable heart.
At 30: Save the candy hearts, give us pizza.
At 10: No. You are 10.
At 20: Bring me your finest cheapest champagne!
At 30: More like ValenWINE. Haha. Sigh.
At 10: You’re not really sure what the big deal is. Won’t they die, like, right away?
At 20: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
At 30: You will give and receive roses and then wait much, much too long to finally throw them away.
(Unless they’re bacon roses, as seen above.)
At 10: You think it’s kinda gross, tbh.
At 20: You are all about it.
At 30: You’ll smooch after six hours of Netflix, maybe.
6. Love Songs
At 10: You MIGHT listen to a certain lovey-dovey song in private, but would never admit it.
At 20: You belt out your favorite romantic song in the shower.
At 30: You still think about that one love song you used to sing all the time when you were 20.
7. Secret Admirers
At 10: You feel awkward and great and terrible about knowing someone likes you.
At 20: You still feel kind of awkward. And also pretty thirsty.
At 30: You feel awkward, STILL. But also like maybe your admirer should take a number, because you know you’re crush-worthy.
At 10: Yes.
At 20: Yes.
At 30: Yes.
Moral of the story? Chocolate is always the answer, no matter your age.
