My husband and I buy each other those cards that we used to hand out in elementary school. Then we go out on some kind of date, come home and uh..., find a way to entertain ourselves most of the night, then we go out the next day and buy candy for 80% off and sit on the couch all day eating it all without shame. I think most women are content with sex and something off those red cardboard displays at convenient because then they know at least you thought of them. This article is poo.

What a load of horse poo. Seriously, who dates a girl so shallow that she needs such things, or so insecure in the relationship that VD is super important?

ugh.. i think this is way too harsh, it makes it sound like it`s damn near impossible to please your woman. i expect nothing more than a card and some time alone with my boyfriend. anything more than that and i`m ecstatic. this year i`m packing a lunch and my boyfriend and i are going to picnic by the pond by his house, then we`re going to a movie.

why even celebrate valentine`s day? do you not show each other enough throughout the year, or on your anniversaries, that you love each other and care about each other? you have to buy a card with a nice saying, and plan a fancy date night?

nah. i feel like valentine`s day is for the insecure. and i`m about to be married and have never wanted to celebrate it. except in elementary school where everyone gave each other scooby doo and powerpuff girl and xmen valentines, and they had tacky sayings on them. those are awesome....

I`m pretty sure valentines are more to do with death than love.

Agree with everything except #6. If my boyfriend showed up in khakis or dress slacks I`d assume something`s weird. Last time I saw him wearing either it was a board hearing for his job and a funeral, respectively.

I disagree with #4... I find it romantic when my hubby sends me lovey texts, even a emoticon flower --&-@ They are only dissappointing when the sender thinks they are a substitute for a real card, instead of an addition to it.
I also think a great idea is to take turns "hosting". I make all the plans one year, he gets the next year. I love it because I get to surprise AND be surprised. The key word here is EFFORT.

I`m just worried about what I`m doing for my husband. We just moved into a new apartment two weeks ago, so we`re completely broke. I`m planning on drawing him a picture (I`m an artist) and dressing in my sexy clothes/having relations. :P

I`ll participate, but I don`t take Valentines Day seriously enough to hate it.

This all seems like terrible advice to me, but I absolutely hate Valentines day now. I`ve been through a lot of bad ones, and the worst are when I`m in a real relationship because I`m always with the least romantic men on the face of the earth. It`s a severe disappointment. The only good one I had was when a guy who was just a friend to me suddenly gave me chocolate. Unfortunately I had to turn him down, but the unexpected love really did feel good.

LOL Gerry- The day after Valentines (I`m cheap) I buy my husband Nerds (the candy not nerds as hookers)

He loves them! Couldn`t be happier!

Hmm...last Valentines day.
Went on a boat ride. Dove and speared an aku together.
Cleaned it by the campfire and ate coconut, limu and aku for dinner on the beach. Toasted with sake. Then camped out and went surfing that morning. This is why I love my wife. What a fabulous day.

Notice it`s all on the men?

Why don`t women have to buy their men something
expensive and nice?... like a hooker for a 3-way.

That`s the gift of love, right there!

Well, Valentines day (or V.D. as I like to call it :P ) really is just a consumerist ploy. My boyfriend and bought each other gifts for V.D. once and they were pocket knives. Screw V.D. !

Go old school and break out the public nudity and goatskin whips!

It`s a ancient fertility ritual, which the Christian church plopped their own meaning onto, made up specifically to cover up the pre-Christian meaning. Like most (all?) Christian holy days.

I have agree with Kemmy, I pretty much agree with most of that. As long as the man isn`t running into the store and not putting any thought into what to get. I don`t mind a card as long as they spent time picking one out and not just grabbed any ole one.

A long time ago I told my (then) girlfriend that IMO Valentine`s Day was nothing but "a ploy for consumers" AND that it was completely one-sided... but that as we both considered ourselves romantics, we should take turns observing it. Even years, I go all-out to give her something to enjoy and to brag about to her friends. Odd years, it`s her turn to woo me.

We`ve been married nineteen years now, and we`ve never stopped courting each other as well as loving each other. Never let the romance fade... but THIS year I get the teddy bear, candy and romantic dinner!

I`m a female and, personally, I disagreed with most of the article. Poor guys out there :(.
I just don`t want my guy getting me anything expensive and impractical. Dollar store box of Candy Hearts and a peck on the cheek is a good Valentine`s Day.

Picking me up ater class and greeting me with a smile and sweet words would mean a lot more to me than a card and material gifts - cept maybe for that uber-cute skirt...

What a bunch of cr*p!! I don`t need a rose or a teddy bear once a year to show me that a man cares for me! I don`t even need him to take me out for dinner!! Valentine`s day is everyday. Shown in respect and care towards each other 24/7

I find that the only people that hate Valentine`s day are the ones bringing youthful bitterness into their current relationship. Its fine to not celebrate Valentine`s Day, but why people bad mouth it when others do is ridiculous and immature.

We celebrate our relationship everyday, but on Valentine`s day we celebrate a little more, like we do on our anniversary. No cards and teddys, but perhaps a $1100 TV. Its Valentine`s Day which means its justified!"

So says the female

Bah, materialistic garbage, love is all fine a dandy, but it doesn`t put food on the table, doesn`t raise kids, doesn`t protect (what ever you hold dear). Feed those corporations, idiots.

I, personally, would love a giant teddy >> I`m a college student who collects SOME stuffed animals still lol... Or a giant stuffed heart. But I agree with mot everything else, except... Who the **** cares if it`s valentines day? wanna be sweet? do something you would normally do on valentines day on any other day of the year.

Well my husband will be in the desert on Valentine`s Day, and I don`t think my 2-year-old can make any of these mistakes. Except, I`m pretty sure he`ll be expecting me to make any plans and he`ll probably be under dressed :)

I should add that he never forgets to take out the garbage and never gets mad at me when I wake him up at two a.m. to kill a spider on the ceiling. Now that`s love.

Meh.

I`ve gotten to the point in the relationship where I just no longer flippin` care. She`s dropped my butt into debt and I`ve consigned myself to a personal hell of listening to her bitch and moan about every possible thing in the universe.

So come Valentine`s day, I take it as my one chance to get piss drunk so I can tolerate a blippin` conversation with her.

Poor guys... some people are so materialistic. I don`t need or want gifts to prove my husband loves me. We do little things all year long spontaneously.

And I don`t understand why anyone would think it`s ok to spend 30 dollars or more on roses when you can get them for 10 the rest of the year!!!

I agree with you 100%. So unorigonal to go out and get soemthing for the one you love when knowing everyone else is doing the same thing. I rather my guy think for himself, not be like a sheep and follow a crowed of people who are all doing the same thing.

i have been happily married 15 years,my wife is more than happy with "just" a card.if i were to spend anymore on gifts,she would not use she would consider it a waste of money moneyand would much rather put that money towards our annual holiday. this list has been written by a very selfish lady who would have no idea about what being in a real realationship is all about.

on a side note to anyone who thinks st valentines day is just a made up holiday i recomend them going to my home country of Malta and see how this made up holiday is celebrated

I offer this as Exibit A. Proof that women lie on surveys.

Every chick I know bitches to me, their personal gay, on February 15th about what their men did not give them. "heartfelt notes" has never been mentioned .

1. i would rather have candy, infact, i dont even appreciate cards, so just dont bother
2. i want the jewellery thanks, its ALL about the money. but yes no bears.
3. it is a marketing scam, i dont mind if we miss it all together
4. im good with a text, or an email
5. i dont care who makes the plans, if i make them, im gonna like them, so i cant see a problem with this
6. ok, yeah, make an effort.


most of this is presuming that every women is some hopeless romantic. not that being romantic is bad, just i imagine it only applies to those kind of girls...

This holiday needs to go away. When you are single, it just reminds you of how alone you are. When you are married, it`s a strange, awkward holiday where neither of you want to do anything, but feel obligated to.

I tell my wife I love her, every day. We`ve been married for 13 years now and we still enjoy spending time with each other. We don`t need a special day to remind us. And if you`re only treating each other with love and attention, one day a year, your relationship is doomed anyway.

Any woman who believes this drivvle should be burned at the stake. I dumped a chick on V-day because she flipped out that we were`nt going to do something special.

As if the last 6 months we weren`t going out to dinner, having a great time at clubs, party`s, spending money on her. Exactly how effing special do these women think they are?
