ME!  I think it’s dumb to have a designated day where you expect your guy to take you out to dinner, drop a ton of money on gifts or flowers, etc while he expects you to do some particularly exciting thing in the bedroom.  It’s just so artificial and forced.  We will usually just use it as an excuse to have a nice home-cooked meal together but skip all the other stuff (well except for the bedroom, lol).

It’s my half birthday, so I celebrate it for that fact…but I hate all the heart stuff.  It’s so lame.  Like…ONLY on this day do we show our love for each other.  Um, no.  That’s dumb.

I did see, however, a way to make hard-boiled eggs into heart shapes…so I might have to make some heart-shaped deviled eggs for my fiance…

@peachacid:  Where did you see the heart shaped eggs? My Darling Husband loooves deviled eggs!

And on topic, we don’t really celebrate it. Darling Husband usually sends me flowers at work (which I do love, but it could be any day and I wouldn’t care lol) but that’s about it.

My birthday is on V day, which I want to think is special, but all my birthdays pretty much sucked because my parents didn’t do anything for me. Fast forward to high school and not only do I not get to feel special on my birthday, EVERYBODY else gets presents and flowers and balloons… presents were delivered to the classrooms every period and never to me. I felt so left out. It was like it was being rubbed in my face. This birthday will be great though because I should be able to try on my custom orange sapphire e-ring from the best man ever! 

Oh, and as far as I am concerned, it isn’t V-day, it is my birthday, when it comes to what I expect from my FH. So I don’t want him to try and cover both bases.

We celebrate it, but not with store-bought overpriced candy and flowers. We make dinner together, drink wine, and watch a romantic comedy. Every once in a while we will go out to a restaurant, but honestly I like the at-home thing better. Suits our style.

Darling Husband and I order a lot of pizza on valentines day. I don’t really care about the holiday, but I do look to forward to the pizza binge!

I’m meh about it. Not opposed to celebrating it but not particularly inclined to.

I decided to leave it up to SO whether we would celebrate it so I asked him last year if he wanted us to celebrate Valentines and he answered “what’s that?” (he’s from a non-Christian country). So that was that.

I hated it when I was single, not because I was single but because everyone assumed I was miserable that day and acted all pitying around me. Even though I rather liked being single…

I’ve never cared much for Valentine’s Day… but I do love me some candy, so Fiance always buys me lots (particularly conversation hearts because those are like crack to me). Other than that we’ve never celebrated. I think our first 2 Valentine’s Days together we ended up going out and getting drunk with friends. And the third I made us dinner at home, but only because we had just brought our kitten home that day and I didn’t want her to have too much commotion. We’re very romantic like that.
