Happy Valentines Day

Thu Feb 14, 2008 4:17 pm

Well, I just thought I would say Happy Valentine's Day to you all, as I don't have anyone special to say it to.

Anyone else on the single shelf and feeling a bit lonely today?

The official term for your situation is S.A.D. - Single Awareness Day.  Wink

As for me, this is my first year truly celebrating V-Day with my fiance. So I am happy as a clam! An amazing woman who loves me, a great job, a nice house; what more can a man ask for?  Smile

Half half, I'm on the single shelf but I'm not feeling lonely. Valentines day is a commercial thing anyways.

Hi,

I guess I'm celebrating S.A.D.(!) Although I guess I can't complain because I have my parents and they're pretty cool so maybe I'll celebrate happy parents day!

That would be me. What's worse, I'm at work (thanks to having to work Australian business days), I feel lonely every day, I am on the single shelf and just want this overcommercialised day to end right now!

Happy Valentines Day to you all as well.

I got kicked out of work early today because of jet lag (just came back from Australia and it hit me hard this time for some reason), so I'm cleaning the house in prep for my GF's return from work at 5pm. Then we're doing a lame cooking dinner, drinking bottleS (yes, plural) of wine, and watching movies. My goal is to get her drunk enough to be pissed when she wakes up that I am taking tomorrow off work and she isn't.

I was in a postcard shop in Swords outside Dublin, Ireland, a few days ago (severe hinting by my fiancee, Valentines day is not very popular in Germany, no matter what the postcard and flower shop try to tell us), and the place was full of men desperate to find postcards for their womenfolk, anticipating the refrigerator treatment if they would forget it.

I suspect you just gave a nail a headache. I had a Happy Valentine's Day for the reason that I didn't get anything! I have a habit of acquiring admirers... something to do with being nice and listening to people rather than just ignoring them, and I was scared I'd receive a Valentine's card from one of them today and have to explain to whichever parent or sibling opened it accidentally or sneakily when the post arrived. Some friends have commented that I give people the wrong idea, but all I'm doing is being nice. I've even spent evenings consoling these people when they're upset that the secret person that they're in love with (who they "don't want to embarrass") doesn't return their affection!
I sometimes think I should get a token male partner so I could at least have the excuse of being a "gay best friend" (but don't get too excited Trekster Big grin ) and not get myself into so many difficult situations with people I don't want to go out with.

Yes its a big thing here. People expect presents/teddy bears/flowers etc.... Some people bought Teddy bears for EUR100 !!!! How crazy is that ..... on the flip side of the coin I was at a train station this morning and there was a really pretty young girl crying her eyes out whilst being comforted by a friend. I have to say it kinda upset me a bit as you dont want to see anyone crying their eyes out on such a day . I just felt sorry for her.

I loathe these import holidays, Halloween and Valentine's Day most prominently. Chocolate bunnies in stores in January are bad enough, we don't really need another holiday for the kitsch industry to get over those three months in between Christmas and Easter.

Nice one! I'd like to suggest "Happy Buy More Hideous Tat Day". I have yet to understand why, supposedly, women are in desperate need to be given red roses and tacky cards to know that we men love them. I'm going to be travelling a couple hundred kilometres to see her tomorrow, should think that's quite a bit better!  Silly

Because that's what the evil Hallmark empire wants you to believe.  Wink While I enjoy receiving flowers (what woman doesn't?), I don't mind not getting them today; they're ridiculously overpriced around this date anyway... Then again, keep in mind that I'm a hopeless geek, and us geeks tend to view things differently, so the above point of view may not apply to your girlfriend/wife/significant other.  Silly

Myself, I would settle for a plane ticket and my travel documentation in order... alas, no can do at the moment  Sad

Thursday night isn't really conducive to romance for a couple of HS juniors, and given the distance (28 miles is long-distance when one can't drive-although that will be changing soon), all I got was a nice phone call. We'll be celebrating in person a week from tomorrow.
