    That's not a big deal?

    Yeah you're right it sounds like a big deal.
    But people give out giri choco (obligation chocolate) a lot so you don't know whether the girl really likes you or not.

    giri choco (obligation chocolate) is what you give to people that you have some relationship with. Work etc.

    Am I making sense?

    I think so. Similar to our American friends, I think. We have a much narrower scope in Australia. You only get someone a Valentine pressy if you're hot on them.

    Well for me is sort of a sad day but not for what you imagine. I grew up with my grandparents since I was 3 years old so I always considered them like my parents. Well so happens that my grandmother died on Valentines day many years back but I that is what it reminds me of every year.

    What do you do when you're "talking" and interested in someone but not technically "dating"? Also, when this person is a few hours away in distance?

    Socially engineered, and I'm split between socially efficient (allowing both partners, notably male, to be more lazy during the year and then make it up all at once = less energy spent) and socially inefficient (leading to an increase of lazy partners who celebrate it for external reasons = more failed relationships).

    Either way, I don't celebrate it.

    It's like any other holiday, it's what you make of it. If people get some legitimate joy out of it, then that's great. It doesn't make me lonely...frankly, I don't think too much about it.

    The only thing that bothers me a little about it is that the expectations are rather narrow, and therefore require little effort to produce. It's sort of like how people call New Year's Eve "amateur night", except it's about paying attention to your SO instead of drinking.
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Valentines day only matters to me when I'm with someone. It's another one of those "oh shit I better do something" holidays when you are seeing someone.

    Overall, I think it produces more stress and tension than good feelings.
