\r\n\r\nThis coming Valentine's Day, the members of your favorite motoring magazine team will be spending the day with their cars (with the exception of Paulo, Barbs, and maybe Vernon. Definitely with the exceptional exception of Barbs).\r\n\r\nBut there's no need to feel sad when everyone else is suckered into believing the commercial exercise known as Valentine's Day. There's a saying that you may know what you're missing, but you should also know what you're being spared from.\r\n\r\nSo here are reasons why you can be grateful you're with your car this Valentine's Day. Of course these don't apply to, Barbs; she's one of the lucky few to be under the spell of true luhuv.\r\n\r\n1. Cars have warning lights when something is wrong. Girls become monosyllabic and walk faster.\r\n\r\n2. You can dress up your car the way you want.\r\n\r\n3. A car is more straightforward to lubricate.\r\n\r\n4. Cars will never tell you to dress up if you're going out with a group in the evening.\r\n\r\n5. When the car's speaker is loud, you can lower the volume. Or mute it!\r\n\r\n6. Cars don't ask you if they look fat.\r\n\r\n7. Cars don't ask why you haven't introduced them to your mother.\r\n\r\n8. Cars don't need to go to the restroom together and compare notes.\r\n\r\n9. It's less expensive to upgrade a car's bumpers.\r\n\r\n10. Cars are more likely to get along with your male buddies.\r\n\r\n11. You can love two cars at the same time and nobody will think you're a jerk.\r\n\r\n12. Cars don't ask you where 'this' is going. They go where you point the steering wheel.\r\n\r\n13. Cars don't feel insecure about the car you had before them.\r\n\r\n14. Cars don't give you hell for looking at other cars.
