Valentine’s Day is that moment in February where men are reluctantly ‘forced’ to shower their women with affection, parade themselves in posh spots in the city with withered roses before retreating in cranky matatus to some neighbourhoods in the city.
It is thus not surprising that some men dread this day and look for every imaginable excuse to wiggle their way out of it with the sole intention to apologize to their wives or girlfriends on the 15th when all the expectations have died down.
Some literally flee three days in advance and switch their phones off, others come down with illnesses that have not been discovered yet while others lock themselves in unending meetings and seminars or simply feign ignorance of the lover’s day. The cheek of it.

Women can, however, attest to this that today the 13th, some men are in the hunt for any little mistake and are finding fault in whatever they do with the intention to dump them and avoid Valentines all together.
Here are some of the memes and jokes doing rounds on social media in relation to the subject..
