What about some special sexual activity that you will only do on Valentine’s day? Then he gets to look forward to that every year.

@oracle: J says the exact same thing about Valentine’s Day.  I agree with him as well.  But you’re right, we should still do something.  Even if it’s silly.

Interestingly, I find that people who use the “love should be celebrated every day, not just one day” don’t really actually do that either. Like, it’s always the Valentine’s Day crabs who say stuff like that, but it’s not like they ACTUALLY give gifts on random days, or send flowers on Wednesday “just because” or bring home a Hallmark card for no real occasion. They just want an excuse not to like a fun day!

I love V-Day and I think it’s cute, and a fun way to break up the monotony of the dull space between Christmas and spring. AKA winter, LOL. But I don’t know how to encourage others to like it if they already don’t. ๐Ÿ™

@ohheavenlyday: Agreed. If every day should be celebrated…WHERE are my random “Oh hey it is Wednesday” flowers? I’ve never seen them.

Ever.

@ohheavenlyday: J does it for me, but I can see where you’re coming from.

I’m one of the few girls that doesn’t like V-Day, but when I find things I think Boyfriend or Best Friend will like, I pick them up for him, and he does the same for me. And I wash his underwear. ๐Ÿ˜€ 

However, this year we will be getting a heart-shaped pizza. I’ve always wanted one so I’m pretty excited. I know it is just pizza, but it’s in a heart. And that is cool.

I’m also in the Bee’s V-Day swap, so maybe the holiday is growing on me … and it’s an EXCELLENT excuse to eat a TON of good chocolate!

I love Valentines Day! My husband is the same way. He HATES it. Last year, he handed me a bear with candy and roses and said, “I didn’t know if you did the cheesy stuff, so I went with it to be safe.”

Love him. But… I’m planning something special for Vday. Hopefully it changes his mind. He’s not much of a romantic type so I’m trying to cater more to the things he enjoys.

And to avoid thread jacking, you could take him to see something he has wanted to see (sports game, movie) and make that a yearly tradition, followed by what @R.Elliott: said!
