And so begins another Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as Singles Awareness Day for many. I have always had mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day. Even in a relationship, I kind of feel guilty for professing love all over social media for the whole world to see because it just feels like an obligation today. But, one thing I won’t turn down are Rolex tickets, so I mean if someone wanted to step up and do that, I’d celebrate Valentine’s Day all day long. Until tomorrow, at least.

Speaking of which, you can get your (and your significant other’s) Rolex tickets right here.
