Here's something interesting you may notice if you browse the Snopes fact check archive: Almost every rumor that gets sent our way about love is very specifically about romance gone wrong. It seems like people on the internet do not particularly care for love all that much, for some reason. As wedding singer Robbie Hart sang in the eponymous 1998 film, "Love Stinks!"

So for those of you who want to see jilted lovers, revenge, and drama on Valentine's Day, this collection is for you.

P.S. Have a romantic legend that needs verification, or a revenge rumor that sounds too good to be true? Send your questions to Team Snopes.
