7 Unrealistic Things TV Shows Taught You About Valentine’s Day

I will be the first to admit that TV shows are, 99 percent of the time, overly dramatic. I mean, that’s why we watch them, right? To get our fill of drama without having to stir things up IRL? That’s why I watch them, anyway. But sometimes the fact that they give us the most unrealistic expectations about what it’s actually like to be a person can be super confusing. Even though I’m old enough now to admit that none of these situations will happen to me in my actual day-to-day life, it’s still fun to point out all of the whack things that happen in TV shows that would NEVER happen in real life. More specifically, it’s fun to see how inaccurately they portray Valentine’s Day in TV shows.

Let’s be honest for a second: Valentine’s Day isn’t as big of a deal as everybody makes it out to be. TV shows have special Valentine’s Day episodes that give you the expectation that your bae is supposed to make this grand romantic gesture and spend hundreds of dollars on you. That…doesn’t really happen. And that’s okay! Valentine’s Day isn’t a huge deal, and there is all of this pressure to make it the best day ever. In reality, just spending time with your bae should be all the matters, right? I mean, Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year, so it’s not like you can do much. Just being with your SO should be enough! But, since we love drama, I will show you all of the most ridiculous things that TV shows teach us about Valentine’s Day, and why none of them will actually happen to you this year, whether you’re single or have a bae.
