    Default Valentines! Valentines! Valentines!

    If you say it three times fast, maybe it will transform into a holiday that doesn't suck for you?

    LOL.

    Ok, I'm not bitter. (Except when I am)

    This is a thread for people to post their thoughts, feelings, anecdotes, rants, poems (okay, maybe not poems), and *plans* etc. about Valentine's.

    Does it make you feel lonely?
    Is it annoying b/c you feel obligated to do something with your S/O?
    Does it fill you with anxiety because you foolishly started dating someone on 1/31 and now you wonder how to proceed on the dreaded V-day?
    Will you be partaking in the Vagina Monologues or anti-trafficking demonstration or some other kind of meaningful twist on the day?
    Is it just another day?
    Best and worst Valentine's?
    What will you be doing on February 14, 2009?

    Ok, my contribution. I am 'dating' at the moment but I am choosing to take a road trip to Miami with a set of single friends. Jjjjyeaaaah! I will get my fake-bake on, hardcore.

    In the past, I have met Valentine's with boredom, loneliness, and irritation. I always seem to be single when Valentine's happens! WTH! How old am I gonna be before I actually do a friggin' Valentine's date?

    And I get annoyed when other people call Valentine's "cheesy" and "commercial" -- hello, we (most of us on the forum anyhow) live in the super industrialized free-market first world. EVERY holiday, including your birthday, is commercialized. It's called ritual folks! It's the glue that keep society (and chocolate and card and florist companies) together!

    So I don't care if it's conventional and hokey! Millions of other people get to experience conventional and hokey, why can't I?????

    The only reason people don't step up to the plate (for me) on Valentine's is because they buckle under the pressure. Boo. They should rise to the occasion and do something creative.

    Oh, a customer once asked me out as his Valentine's date. That was awkward.

    Valentines day is a lonely day.

    (But actually, every holiday is).

    Oy. I wish I had more to say.. Generally, I'll give close friends small gifts, which I won't be able to do this year for monetary reasons. I'll probably spend it alone at the house again.

    Is it just another day?

    Yes. I think that about all holidays.

    Guys. I'm feeling some potential here. By the way, MP, I love you, man. You're welcome to call me up on VD. I mean. It sounds gay, but I'd hate for you to be lonely.

    What's shitting me the most at the moment is all the girls at work making a great big fuss over how they are so deprived cause they wont be getting any flowers and how unfortunate they are.

    First fact is material things are irrelevant.
    Second fact is they will get something.
    Third fact is it is a very lonely day when youre single.

    Lastly you might wanna read up the Aussie newspapers the day after to see if I go postal and make my co-workers eat the damn roses their other halfs send them thorns and all cause they wouldn't stfu about how they deserve more :steam:

    "Hey everyone! Christmas is over, and the retailers need another reason to sap money out of the populace and attempt to use all of our resources as quickly as possible! Let's call it Valentine's Day and make people think that celebrating it proves that they "love" other people! It's much easier to buy a box of gamble chocolate and hand it over than to say, actually care about someone, right?!"
