Top Anti-Valentine Sites, Apps, Pages & More!

People react to occasions differently – especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day…

Some people love it and consider it a great way to show your love to a lover or partner, while others hate it either because they are single at the time or because they feel it’s a commercial event designed to make you pay more for the romantic gestures which can be done every day throughout the year!

No, I won't Be Your Valentine!

This year, I will be taking the anti-Valentiners’ side and I will be sharing with you the top anti-Valentine sites, tools & applications which you might enjoy – and even get a laugh out of!

The page is clearly against all Valentine’s Day activities and promotes being someone’s anti-Valentine!

If anyone was able to get their hands on that cookie, they would be able to “impersonate” you on that website. That is exactly what Firesheep allows you to do.

It Is That Simple!
