Along with the boxes of chocolate, jewelry and red roses that accompany Valentine’s Day, there also comes quite a bit of stress. Expectations are high for an exotically amorous experience, and the pressure is on for men and women alike. However, for those who find themselves not caught up in a romantic entanglement, different types of stress occur, and most of us have experienced exactly what that’s like at one time or another.

So, for all the lonely hearts this V-Day we’ve compiled a montage of perfect moments from NBC’s “The Office” that demonstrates the feelings that most of the singles out there feel or have felt on this bittersweet Hallmark holiday. Order that bottle of wine for one, activate the beautiful box we call television, and treat yourself because “The Office” knows the feeling, is here to relate, and loves you for you. Here is:
