From roads to social media, red heart balloons and mushy posts can make singles feel left out during the Valentine's Week. Hence, Anti-Valentine's week is observed to celebrate the ones who are yet to find someone they want to be with, and people who had the courage to move out of a toxic relationship and find their happiness.
