It can be tough being single on Valentine’s Day. It can be particularly tough being single for Valentine’s during a pandemic!
That’s the subject of the latest video from YouTube comic, Michael Henry, which besides being humorous, finds Henry in a more reflective mood and revealing he’s “Never had a Valentine.” and “Never had a boyfriend. Never been in love.”
Although a friend (played by the drag queen, Meatball) reassures him Valentine’s Day is just a “silly holiday”, Henry wonders why some people seem to find it so easy to fall in love, while others do not.
After further probing from the friend, it seems Henry’s experiences with “love” have all involved “games, chasing, rejection, and feeling crushed,” … something which, well, many others might be able to relate to.

Indeed, the commentators on YouTube appreciate Henry’s honesty.
“I’ll be 33 this year and have never had a boyfriend. It gets lonely,” says one.
“My Valentine is my little doggie and we usually cry together and go to bed early,” offered another.
