There are two kinds of couples: those who think the ideal Valentineâ€™s Day includes roses, a bubble bath and a fancy dinner, and those who would much rather spend it on the couch eating snacks and binge-watching a new show. If you and your significant other fall into the latter camp, then youâ€™ve come to the right place. Below, weâ€™ve compiled 22 anti-Valentineâ€™s Day cards for couples who are more snarky than sappy.Â
Just because you’re married doesn’t mean that you and your boo are huge proponents of Valentine’s Day and all of the mushy-gushy, red rose B.S. it typically entails. That being said, there’s no reason happy couples shouldn’t find a less nauseating way to celebrate their love. Below we’ve rounded up 17 alternative V-Day cards for couples with a less traditional definition of romance.
After 18 years of marriage and two kids, cartoonist Adrienne Hedger has accumulated plenty of fodder for her comic series, Hedger Humor. “I happened to marry someone who is my opposite in many ways, so it makes for a lot of humorous situations,” she told HuffPost. “Sometimes when these events play out, they aren’t funny in the moment — but I know that they might make a good cartoon later.”Hedger constantly finds inspiration in everyday life with her husband and daughters, ages 12 and 14.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
