    What they've done is they've made one more opportunity to make money off of something meaningful. Like Mother's Day. And Father's Day. And Grandparent's Day. And Secretary's Day. And Halloween. And Thanksgiving. And the 4th of July. And New Year's. Pretty much it WILL be a day like any other because we have to buy stuff for people every day of the flipping year. Or buy candy. Or rockets. Or a shit-load of food you don't need.

    I hate this obligatory stuff. Whatever happened to getting stuff for people just because you thought of them? No, now you have to remember all these crappy days along with birthdays and anniversaries and this day and that day and Christmas and going over people's houses, and blah blah blah.

    Dude, I hate trying to remember five thousand days a year. Maybe I should just buy gifts every day to prepare. You know? Sort of like a future investment.

    I like V-day. It gives the naturally unromantic of us, who want to be romantic for our partners, an excuse to hide behind out of fear of displaying our gushy side.

    I've never really disliked the event. When I was single, it was just another day. Most of the V-day haters are the bitterly single, it seems.
    Um, yeah.

    I wish I could invent a holiday that guilt trips the whole country into buying a whole lot of the product my company produces. What a brilliant business model.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I personally like Valentines day. Never had a Valentine though.
    One day it'll happen!

    so last year the funniest thing happened the day after V day. At that point I was acting like a stupid little kid and had a crush on an ENTP-who of course got me nothing. I was a bit sad, meh, but I have never actually gotten anything for V day, so it wasn't a big deal.

    So the next day I get an email greeting card.

    "Happy Valentine's Day, Someone loves you!!!" My hand went for the mouse and I ALMOST clicked to download the card. Muhahahaha, it was a virus email...

    How many silly women clicked that fateful day...

    Bad holiday!!!!

    Yeah, the truth is that I kind of like valentine's day. I like all the cute stuff - the stuffed animals, the flowers, the pink and the red. I remember being a little kid and decorating pretty little valentine's boxes in class. I like the idea of people running around telling each other they love each other (or like each other, or whatever). I'm an ENF that way, I guess.

    I dunno - it's CUTE dammit!...even if I'm not in a relationship, I can still appreciate the cuteness of it.

    I lost my virigininininity on V-day, so it has real meaning to me. But there's room for V-day haters and participators.
