By Sheena Siao on February 2, 2015

Professing love gets a little bit harder every year. Thanks to the Jason Magbanuas of the world, women’s expectations keep getting higher. Suddenly, everything needs to be swoon-level, tear-in-your-eye video-worthy. But does all these stuff of dreams translate to reality? Can the grand romantic gesture survive under the fluorescent haze of an office?

Here are possible reasons that might just take the giddiness out of Valentine’s Day – including you!

1. Uso pa ba ang harana a.k.a. Surprise Serenades in the Office

Please take note:

Serenading when you’re young

When you’re slightly older (and in the 80s)

When you’re older and in the year 2015

Sometimes you just have to let the day pass.
