Now, since this is a guide, that's a love story you wanna avoid. Don't be the Echo to a buzzkill Narcissus. Nope. Illustration: Ankita Mitra

There’s no love like self-love. No, really. Often, in a bid to celebrate the idea of love and loved ones, you forget the most important person in your life — yourself. In the words of Geet, the famous love doyenne from Jab We Met, try telling yourself: “Main apni sabse favourite hoon” (I am my most favourite). Do it today.

Hindi cinema’s favourite bubbly heroine underlined a love you’re not used to celebrating. She wasn’t far from echoing the great author Charles Bukowski: “If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.”

Go ahead, worship yourself but don’t be a psycho about it like that moronic, mythical Narcissus. Since no one tells you to love yourself anymore, we present a case for celebrating narcissistic love on Valentine’s Day.

The extreme narcissistic lover, the perfect narcissistic couple, the overconfident narcissist — it’s all in here. We give you 5 stories from the point of view of people who love themselves to bits. This can also act as a guide, just in case you’ve decided to give the clichéd idea of Valentine’s Day a miss.
