…or, I Didn’t Even Get Flowers.
Nope, not one. I got some candles that he said he got because they were on sale, and a card, and take out sushi. Oh, and I got, “Are you sad that I didn’t get you flowers? Sorry.” I don’t get it.
I am not feeling too optimistic today. Trying not to get upset over this stupid day with its stupid expectations.
If this were any other day on the calendar I’d be raving about what a great guy I have. Which is true. Just this stupid “holiday” setting me up for disappointment.
Love him. Love what he got for me. Just don’t get that he knew I wanted flowers and didn’t even stop to get me some…I wouldn’t have minded if he didn’t throw in that comment though.
Boo hoo hoo.
Who else is disappointed by this stupid pink heart on the calendar?

My SO and I went out on Saturday. He took me to a fancy restraunt and got me a card. It was really nice but of course I wanted a proposal that did not happen. I don’t know what is going to happen today. Hopefully, I will not have a melt down. That’s all I can hope for. I hope your day gets better.

I talked to my daughter online today and she told her Boyfriend or Best Friend has to work tonight. She and her BFF will go out to dinner after work. Not to trash the guy entirely, they did get away this last weekend and had a wonderful time.
No engagement for her today.

Yep, we went out for a nice weekend two weeks ago (which we called an early Valentines day). Well today’s the real Valentines day and nothing…he’s cooking me dinner but that happens a lot. The worst part is I have a sinking feeling there will be no proposal, even though the ring is sitting in the next room in a box. Hope we can all enjoy our days anyways.

i’m sorry to barge in on the waiting thread. I am engaged, but sorely SORELY disapointed by our first valentines day as an engaged couple. I got nothing and i mean nothing. and we had a HUGE fight because i couldn’t hide my disapointment. I think he thinks that because he’s popped the question after all these years he doesn’t have to ever work hard to keep me happy. he hates valentines day and i’m starting to hate it too!!!

Not waiting, but disappointed. He doesn’t believe in V-day and I have never been with a man that skipped it. It’s hard to think about the long weekend getaways and candle lit dinners with douchebag ex when I’m sitting here alone reasy to go get a bottle of wine and just get smashed and clean the house. *sighs*

Isn’t the card the best part? It is to me.

Got nothing, but at least I was told not to expect anything. But still.. the hopeful romantic inside me was reallllllyyy wishing for some surprise flowers, or chocolates, or even a card! But nada.. oh well.

I didn’t get anything and I’m not the least bit disappointed but I’m pretty indifferent when it comes to Valentine’s Day. I’d rather he randomly sent me flowers any other day of the year than feel obligated to do so on February 14th.
To the people who are disappointed – did you get him anything for V-Day?

@Meealissa: Technically, no I didn’t *get* him anything. But I did make him an amazing dinner with all his favourite foods.
ETA: and I made apple pie!

@Meealissa: I got him his favourite chocolates in the shape of a heart. And I’m not disappointed at the lack of a gift, since we did go away a couple of weeks ago, but more disappointed at the lack of a proposal!

@Meealissa: yep – got him the cufflinks for him to wear at our wedding. that really killed him, and sparked the fight. not the happiest camper today to be honest 🙁

@Gingersnap: yep – i hear ya – he’s a huge hater and feels like one of the PP does – would rather get me flowers any other day of the year than vday, yada yada yada…yeah well where are the flowes on May the 5th assh**e!!? So although i knew i likely wasn’t getting anything, the romantic in me still hoped…and thats what was disapointed!
