This Is What It's Like Seeing "Fifty Shades Of Grey" By Yourself On Valentine's Day

This is rock bottom.

Posted on

Feb. 14 started like any other day. I woke bursting with glee. IT WAS VALENTINE'S DAY, AND I WAS SINGLE AND FREE! :D

I ran downstairs to hang with my roommates, but to my displeasure they were already busy.

So yeah. Both my roommates are with their girlfriends.

I realised that I was once again single on Valentine's Day and all my friends were busy. I started to panic.

So I messaged a ~friend~ to see if she wanted to "hang out".

That didn't work out, but luckily I finally got a match on Tinder.

With everything failing I knew I was spending the day alone, so I decided to see a movie.

I shaved and put on a pro wrestling shirt, to remind myself why I'm single.

I arrived at the cinema and awkwardly purchased my ticket...for one.

This was really happening.

As expected, the cinema was full of couples...making me feel weird and lonely.

After the trailer for the new Vince Vaughn film...

Fifty minutes in, the first sex scene finally came.

People are looking at me weird during this sex scene… #50ShadesOfGrey

I should be writing down tips here. Christian’s love making is causing Ana to make noises that I’ve never heard from a girl #50ShadesOfGrey

But I couldn't do it! I left the movie early...feeling violated.

I didn’t need to sit through the whole movie to know that it deserved zero stars.

No like seriously. There was no sex for the first hour of the movie! Just awkward talking! So pretty much my dating life. #50ShadesOfGrey

At least when I got home, I saw something that made me feel better about being single.

One of my roommates is letting his girlfriend win on the Playstation. If this is what a relationship is, then I'm glad as fuck I'm single

I couldn't let the fact that I was single on Valentine's Day and had spent $17.50 on a horrible movie get me down. There were always other activities to lift my spirits.
