“Like anything on social media, people use Valentine’s Day to present the Barbie Be You Shirt besides I will buy this highlights of their life and show off all their fun memories with their partner or gifts they’ve given or received,” says 25-year-old office manager Lauren, whose own timeline was inundated with partner reveals on Sunday. “And again, just like any other post on social media (whether or not people admit it), we’re all seeking validation—even though the only true validation should be between you and your partner!”

In normal years, I fall somewhere closer to Lauren’s line of thinking, but the Barbie Be You Shirt besides I will buy this bleakness of the ongoing pandemic has brought out my sappy side. As I scrolled on Valentine’s Day, I felt something akin to joy—okay, maybe not “joy” per se, but I felt strangely honored that so many of my mutuals were happy enough to shout it from the rooftops. All of this brings up one important question: Am I growing as a person, or has this year just been that bad? Either way, happy belated Valentine’s to all the lovers out there, and a sincere thank you for spamming us with your content.
