I normally don't care too much about Valentine's Day.

So, why am I angry and bitter this year?

Even now that I'm hitched, I still think it's a really stupid holiday. REALLY stupid. I actually liked it more whan I was single because it was a good excuse to round up the girls and get shitfaced on a weekday.

seconded.

I always had way more fun on V day before I was married.
(or when i was with someone even)

Aubs: V day for couples is usually not what its like on TV. I dont think most couples even exchange gifts or cards or candy, and if they do its like a rushed afterthought.

I guess we're planning on going to dinner this weekend, but ya know, probably with laurel and we often go to dinner once a month or so anyway, so its really.. ya know.. not a big romantic thing.

exactly. David and I will probably order in from our fav takeout place and maybe get a cheap bottle of wine. no big steak dinners, no boxes from Tiffany's, no flowers, no chocolates. Because we actually like takeout and cheap wine. It's so weird that we've accepted as a country that we have to pretend to be this formal, over-spending couple at least once a year.

I also second the "rushed afterthought" thing. "Here baby... I got you this rose for $1.99 at the 7-11." It's all so much pressure that it's really not fun or romantic at all. UGH.

Oh heck yes, especially if they're the fabric ones that stink funny and have a tiny fuzzy bear on them!

Plus, if a couple does choose to go out, they get to have their intimate dinner in loud, jam-packed restaurants (and pay out the wazoo for the privilege). Not fun...

I totally understand that, even worse if they have to get a babysitter, too!

I never thought it was like anything on tv, and am constantly laughing at all of the companies shouting out that they're the ones to shop at, and that the ONLY way you can "win her love" is if you invest in tons of jewelry! I think it is more of... my friend joe and i used to go out every Valentine's Day and pretend it was our first date - get dressed up and stuff. Now he lives in Dallas with a very serious boyfriend, and I'm far, far away.

Once I looked further into it, I think it was mostly missing that tradition, with another slight chunk of it being yet ANOTHER year that I'm single - six years of being single, and only once having a boyfriend over VDay, when I was sixteen.

I normally don't care much that I'm single. I generally LOVE my singleness!

Wish I knew. I'm not terribly fond of it either, but I'm still going to surprise Jerry with a rose since he's the closest thing I've got to a valentine. :)

Awww. I used to go out with my friend Joe for years every Valentine's Day. We would act like it was our first date and dress up and go to a nice restaurant, etc. Now, he lives in Dallas and has a boyfriend, and most of my friends here are coupled. I think it's more of a ... missing the old habit of going out with Joe for VDay.
