Ah, Valentine’s Day. For those of us with a significant other, it can be one of the best days of the year. (Though that’s most definitely not a guarantee.) For those of us who are single AF, it’s often considered a yearly reminder we might grow old and die alone. It seems everyone has a V-Day story, good or bad. And when a “Worst Valentine’s Day story” is bad, it’s really bad.
We decided to ask Hornet users about their worst Valentine’s Day stories as the latest installment of our #10WordChallenge. (And, sure, their best ones, too.) And, as always, they didn’t fail to deliver the goods.
From nice nights on the town including chicken wings (or a Spice Girls concert) to the ultimate in Valentine’s Day tragedy, here’s what a select few Hornet users had to say about their varied history of V-Day experiences.
Here are what some Hornet users called their best Valentine’s Day ever:

Wine and chocolate on my bed watching a good anime. –Bri
