Add Valentine's Day to the list of things I hate

I'm having a bit of a problem here. I hate Valentine's Day. I think it is a day where guys are forced to express things that they otherwise would not. Dont get me wrong, I love my girlfriend very much, but I dont think that I should be required to give her gifts just because its Valentine's Day. I buy her stuff all the time, so why should the 14th be special? The thing that sucks is that if I tell her this, I'll probably break her heart and get her thinking that our relationship is in trouble. All because she has been convinced by Hallmark that I'm supposed to go that extra step to impress her tomorrow. Bah.

So umm... anyone have any good ideas for a last minute gift? This is our third Valentine's Day together, so I somehow have to come up with something original or risk my girlfriend's wrath.

Welcome to the club man....get used to it.

I actually tell my finace how much I think the holiday has been commercialized and how bad I hate it.

But we still get each other small things.

I dunno what to tell ya, just write her something nice in a heartfelt card, some flowers, and a valentines day trinket or something. Like a bear, figurine, something like that. Just keep it simple and be nice. If she acts like a ***** because you get her something like I suggested...she aint worth it. My guess is she will be happy with you as long as you put in some effort.

Valentines day isn't any more special than today. Today is the greatest day I've ever known. And I like wheat.

It's just a holiday invented by Hallmark to sell cards and candy and stuff. It should be dumped.

look at your right hand, it spells the word Jill, takes some imagination.
Or you can have a three-some with the Jill twins.

I'll be working security at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the LA Convention Center :D . I still hate Valentine's Day though. I never did like it, then I got dumped on Valentine's Day, now I straight despise it.

Hey! I should walk down the street and cause a ruckus. Then you can come kick my *** out. It would give you something fun to do.

11 years later my wife has come to the conclusion that I dont play this **** !! Xmas , anniversary , Bday maybe - but not a over hyped commercial rip off . That being said she was kind to me the other night - so I got her a card and a 5 dollar bouquet of flowers .. :lol:

I ended up getting her an engraved photo album for ~$30 from Things Remembered. Its nice and it only cost me the aforementioned cash and 10 minutes in a mall. Not too shabby for sure-thing lovin', eh?

Oh yeah, I don't see that whole Jill thing in my right hand, so I'll keep the name I already gave it.

Borg Philosophy of Valentine's Day

To quote the Borg:

"Love is irrelevant, resistance is futile."

If you love someone, you shouldn't love them only one day a year and you should show it all the time. However, women have become accustomed to Valentine's Day as a "I get something" day, often from men that can't express themselves, so no matter how much you care, you have to go an extra mile on VD.

For me, I only have to worry about my sister's B-day...thank God I'm single (and loving it!)

I never did really hate it until the same thing happened to me today.
