Timehop realizes you might not want to see photos of your ex on Valentine’s Day

Break-ups are rough, but on days like today (it’s Valentine’s Day, if you managed to forget), being alone can be especially difficult.

There’s a desperate torch song: Dusty Springfield’s truly pitiful “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.” There’s Drake, alone and drunk in a basement: “Look What You’ve Done.” There’s the Violent Femmes’ pleading, self-loathing “Please Do Not Go.” A few loops should take you through the night. I…
