We usually don't make a big deal out of it because I feel the same way. But yesterday I got a huge arrangement of star gazer lilies, taken out to dinner, and then told we're going to San Diego for the weekend.Planderella said:This will be the first time that I've ever had a sweetheart for Valentine's Day. I've always been single at this time of the year. I jumped the gun and gave him his present last night (a leather jacket). My belief is one shouldn't have to wait until some commercially-recognized holiday to express their love for one another. :k :f
I find that if you purchase roses at a supermarket, they are much cheaper than a florist. My girlfriend makes me promise not to buy overpriced florist roses.giff57 said:I won't be buying the overpriced f'ng roses, that's for sure, but I'll worry about that tomorrow.
That's true, but they always look like they're from the supermarket. 'Spose you could re-wrap them in nicer paper. Or maybe your supermarket does a good job.jtfortin said:

It's the little things that make Valentines Day special, right Kel?KMateja said:This morning I gave rob his present - morning action.
I try not to schedule first or second dates on Valentine's Day. It's just too awkward ... too many expectations.JNL said:As for me, it's Valentines Day here already, and I have a date tonight! Only met this guy last week but I think we're not going out because it's Valentines Day, the date is just a coincidence.

I had dates last night (went great!), and there's a woman that I've already had two dates with; I'm seeing her again on Monday. Tomorrow I have another first date with someone. Tonight, I'm going to shampoo my carpet.
I can relate to this, a bit. My college boyfriend was my first serious fall in love sun moon and stars, wrapped up in each other one hundred percent was going to marry him and have his babies and our breakup mentally unhinged me in ways that make me cringe to this day to look back on. and while i don't think about him today, or most days even, i don't think i'll ever totally be over our relationship, even though I am happily married to man that makes me happier than i ever imagined i could be, and had i married the first guy, we'd likely be divorced by now or extremely unhappy.AntiPlannerMovement said:
I'm I nuts for thinkin' of two women on Valentine's Day?
