    we don’t celebrate it. i agree with your SO and think it’s more of an inconvenience than anything. and i don’t think it’s really fair that guys are expected to lavish gifts and affection on women. if Vday is important to you, why don’t YOU plan something fun and exciting?

    We both don’t care much, but I’ll always make the effort to get him a card. He usually forgets about it, but he has a stash of pre-bought cards so he goes through it and writes me a sweet note.

    As long as he makes the effort to celebrate anniversaries I don’t really care about Valentines Day…

    I don’t really fit into your poll. We do “recognize” Valentine’s Day, but it’s not like we go all out and make a huge production of it. I guess I’d fit into the “Yes, we’re both into it.” because he usually buys me flowers at some point during that week and we say Happy Valentine’s Day to each other on the day of, but that’s about it…

    I like your SO’s idea better of choosing your own Valentine’s Day to celebrate – and actually, I think I’d like it more if DH just surprised me with something romantic on some random day of the year…

    We don’t celebrate it either. If you want romance of Valentine’s day maybe treat your guy to something special? He’ll never see it coming.

    @ChicFoodist:  lol i agree with your SO

    I told DH its gives women an excuse to be mad at their DHs, SOs for “forgetting” its Vday.

    We don’t need a holiday to celebrate how much we love eachother, it should be done on a regular basis.

    We celebrate in the sense that we take the opportunity to go out eat & what not.  We don’t go all out for gifts or the fanciest dinner ever or anything, but we are pretty lovely dovey on the other 364 days so why not on Feb. 14th too?

    We don’t celebrate it. We might buy chocolate in discount the day after but that’s all. 😛

    @ChicFoodist:  We usually don’t do the whole box of chocolates, flowers, type of stuff but we do usually go out to a nice dinner or away for that weekend. This year since Valentines falls on a Fri we are going to Biloxi for the weekend…..we love to travel so anytime we can take a get away we do!

    I said only one of us is in it and the other obliges. Me being the one who likes it, and him obliging. I don’t like it to the point where we go all out. We just get each other something small and spend time together at home.

    @ChicFoodist:  We don’t care. We might splurge on a fancier meal to make at home, but we don’t get all dressed up and go out or get gifts or anything. We treat each other lovingly other days out of the year with gifts and special dinners.

    We have a very nice dinner at home and get drunk on wine. But, that’s basically every weekend at our house, so it’s not anything out of the ordinary. We probably drop more $$$ on the dinner ingredients than normal, maybe a nicer bottle of wine. But we certainly don’t exchange gifts.
