Many a New York Times trend piece has attempted to explain the millennial generation's total disregard of traditional courtship rules. We millennials are apparently more fond of speed dating -- at least our their own form of it, comprising efficient meet-ups at bars and coffee shops -- than expensive dinner dates. Millennials like their "hookup culture." They might want to get married, someday, maybe? They're notoriously phone-skittish, preferring instead to text, or use one of a myriad dating apps available (mostly) for free. And all of this is making their love lives really confusing.

It's pretty hard out there for your modern relationship. Here are some Valentine's Day cards that totally get it:
