Whether you celebrate it or not, Valentine's Day is widely considered one of the sappiest of holidays. You shower your significant other with Valentine's Day gifts and flowers and maybe even a proposal. But for some people, Valentine's Day has gone a little too far. Making a reservation four months in advance? No, thank you! Overpriced gifts exchanged over dinner at a crowded restaurant? Hard pass! Thankfully for the Valentine's skeptics — or those who don't take the holiday too seriously — there are plenty of Valentine's Day memes and jokes that help to take the lovefest down a notch or two.

Though February 14 has become a day associated with love and affection, the origins of V-Day are surprisingly darker. Historians believe the holiday originated in ancient Rome during the feast of Lupercalia, which sounds... far from romantic if you read up on it. But no matter whether you take issue with the origins of Valentine's Day, just aren't big on the whole "public display of affection" thing, or would rather celebrate Singles Awareness Day, here are the best Valentine's Day memes to get you through the lovey-dovey holiday. Cynical or not, these Valentine's Day jokes are sure to make you crack a smile.
