So I thought maybe we would skype for the evening but instead he went out to play a card game.
I’m upset- I feel like I’m being stupid for being upset- but I can’t seem to help how I feel.
Valentines day isn’t even a big deal right?

If you had set skype plans and he ditched- you can be totally upset
if you just kinda wanted to skype and didn’t tell him- maybe let it go, Valentines day probs just isn’t that important to him

I think you’re being a little too dramatic. There’s nothing wrong with him wanting to go out if the two of you can’t be together.

@accorn: i know to most females, valentine’s day is a huge deal so i can understand why you would be upset. but, having said that, what makes today really any different from yesterday or tomorrow? you can always skype with him tomorrow or any other day. he is probably just trying to keep his mind occupied. fwiw, i am in a LDR and it’s been 3 months since we’ve seen each other, with another month or so to go till we see each other again. we skyped last night….i’m sitting on my couch drinking wine, and he is on a plane to go somewhere for a boy’s weekend. i’d rather he be entertained than sitting around and missing out on things.

Well, I’m married and long distance and I’m sitting on weddingbee and watching Amazon prime videos tonight. If I hhad a card game I could be at – I absolutely would. But we’re celebrating V-day tomorrow. Did you guys discuss how and when you would celebrate V-day? If not, i wouldn’t be bad that he didn’t anticipate that you’d want to Skype. Just set up a romantic Skype night for another night! The actual date doesn’t really matter.

@accorn: Me and DH do not have a skype date planned so I will go out tonight. If he calls and gets upset then OH WELL because there was nothing planned! It will suck to miss a call but I can’t mope and wait on him all night!
It is a little different for us since his valentines day was yesterday….

@accorn: He’s probably totally bummed you can’t be together, so decided to hang with his friends to take the edge off. I was in a LDR with hubby before we got married. Skype would not have been an adequate replacement. Its even harder of guys. They have a harder time processing these kinds of feelings, and look for distraction and mask them instead of ruminating on them like women tend to.
