So tomorrow, many people will be bum rushing stores across the nation in search of flowers, candy and cards because once again, they forgot that it's Valentine's day and woe betide any male with a significant other that doesn't have the prerequisite items of affection. What does this have to do with us, a subculture that is decidedly smarter than that nonsense? Well, I'm glad you asked!

Fun story time!
Almost exactly a year ago, I was in a long distance relationship with the man of my dreams - I really thought I was going to marry this chap. The previous 2 years, we celebrated Valentine's day dutifully, even if my presents were a little more awesome (homemade. truffles. duddeee). Well, the 3rd year rolls around and suddenly, there's no phone call, no e-mail, no card - not one little mention of V Day.
Bwah? What happened? Was the calender wrong? Was it some other day?
Nope, boyfriend decided without telling me that he didn't want to celebrate Valentine's Day anymore ("it's such a commercial holiday!") and since my "gift" was going to be seeing him in a week or so, he didn't need to even mention the holiday, get me a gift or say he loved me a little extra.
I went ballistic.
It wasn't about the gifts - it was about the declarations of love. Our relationship was in a really tough spot at that time and needed every little bit of help it could get, commercial or no.
It finally ended with me screaming through tears, "You didn't have to get me one damn thing, just write an e-mail for God's sake! I just want to know how you feel!"

He dumped me less than a month later over the phone and I haven't heard from him since.

What's the moral of the story?

Well, for one, my ex-boyfriend was an jerk.
Two, gifts aren't necessary as long as you're expressing your feelings come tomorrow. Make a crappy paper heart and write down a love poem you two enjoy. That cost all of, what, 30 cents?
Show you care, whether or not you paid for that 90$ box of Belgian luxury dark 80% fair trade organic chocolate or made your 30 cent card.
You'll know you did right when you see your loved one's eyes light up! <3

And remember, all you single folks:
Half. Off. Belgian luxury dark 80% fair trade organic chocolate. Wednesday.

HUZZAH!

Sorry to hear all of that D:

I've never been one for the holiday myself; sure back when I was a teenager and started dating it was kind of a big deal to me. These days I care more about my birthday which is several days after and a much more awesome time than any valentine's day ever is.

Link totally related to Valentine's Day though.

I don't care for it since, it is another holiday like Halloween and Christmas. I look forward to see what my brother has yet eaten and I get stuck with nothing. I did get an early card from him though. :0: :glomp:

I just like looking at all of the giant stuffed animals they put out in the stores. I don't think I'd be allowed to have one in my barracks, though!

^ you two are so cute /creeps moar/

I just love the decorations and cute baking things I can get at this time ;A; /obsessed with hearts and red+pink/ Since I'm not into relationships, I mostly just use it as an excuse to bake cute things for my friends and family. To me it's international sweets day more than anything.

Needless to say, I'll be spending it playing otomege :]

I hate this holiday; I prefer celebrating the 14th as Singles' Awareness Day. Technically, I'm not single yet, but since my boyfriend and I haven't spoken in six months (I've sent plenty of texts, emails, phone calls, and IMs, but received none in return), I guess I'm better off toting myself as single. I understand having a long-distance relationship is tough, but still. XP

Yeah, that sounds very single to me. O_o
Took four - fourteen days of silence to realize I was probably getting dumped with a couple boyfriends.

I'm the same way! And I'm sorry to hear about that. :( I honestly don't really believe in Valentine's day because I feel EVERYDAY you should show someone how much you care about them with gifts and all. For example, my dad will just randomly come home with flowers/chocolate/or just a little something for my mom and tell her how much he loves her throughout the year. He does so much for my mom because he loves her. In my opinion, it's just another consumerist day driving people to spend, spend and spend more money.

So happy singles awareness day! All of us singles....UNITE AND BE LOUD N PROUD FOR BEING SINGLE!

Sorry to hear about sad love stories and "forever alone" claims. Not to be sappy sap but I've never really had a date on Valentines Day as I usually end up breaking up before V-Day or have just been single, damn. :P Anyway, I'm not letting today get me down nor should any of the single people here either. To those that have a special someone, have fun today, even if
You don't go all out! You guys deserve it.

Now I'm going to shill a piece I wrote for my website today called "7 Women I Want As My Valentine." I hope some of you may appreciate it.

Salty day commences. I never celebrated the holiday, but I honestly don't care. Im not spiteful to the couples, nor the single awareness day stuff.
Honestly, this day needs less anger and rage. I treat it like most other holidays...a regular day lol and I work all day today lol

To be honest, I never really cared for the holiday. The past few years I would send a portillo's ten pack to one of my female friends. The card would say" what is seven inches long and feels great in your mouth".
