Love Never Looked So Embarrassing: Happy Awkward Valentine's Day! (PHOTOS)

Awkward Family Photos Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is one of those awful holidays that reminds you that either way, you’re pretty much damned.

If you treat it like a big deal, you’re usually disappointed in the end because it can be hard to achieve the unrealistic expectations that have been built up over time. On the other hand, if you brush it off as another Hallmark holiday, it might just be because you’re trying to convince yourself that it’s OK to be alone.

But no matter which way you look at it, at least your Valentine’s Day can’t possibly be as awkward as that of the following people:
