Nobody should be alone on Valentine's Day and pondering "what if?"

When it comes to love, the opportunities are out there for the taking as long as you've got the guts to grab them. Cupid's aim is unreliable, ladies.

No one knows this better than sex and relationships expert @Ooloni.

So she encouraged women to participate in the annual Valentine's Day challenge, where single ladies text message their crushes in the hopes of nabbing themselves a date on February 14.


"Ladies..who's ready for the Valentine's Day challenge this year?" @Ooloni tweeted on Tuesday to her army of female followers.

"Message your crush 'I've had a crush on you for some time. Would you like to go on a date with me this Valentine's Day?'"



Many answered the call, or rather, sent out their declarations of love.

It's not romantic, but it's an unexpected response.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
