Just thought I would see if anyone else out there HATED Valentine's Day as much as I do?

The Wifey gets a new diamond every year. Other than that the kids usually get little Teddy Bears. Hey, what's not to love? All the best, LongHorn

I hate it. More money to spend. And it means I'll have to spend more time with the wife rather than with my beloved virtual areoplanes!

I think it´s stupid. I really don´t need to be given a special day to make a gift to my girlfriend...I guess it´s just a commercial strategy.

I think its wonderful as long as I can share it with someone. I'm 48 and not very picky and this year a few roses buys a sweet smile, and more http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

A bittersweet holiday...

Was once broken into a few years ago on Valentines day. They took everything. It really sucked.

I tend to subscribe to the ideas behind Saint Valentine's Day.

Wife gets the dozen roses each year without fail.

Being married to me.... I feel she deserves them.

The whole idea of being extra sweet to your sweetie on a certain day is wacked.You should always be extra sweet and tolerant towards them.
That being said,I think Valentines Day is absurd.A cheap ploy by candy,card,and jewelry merchants to try and sell their wares.I started seeing V Day advertising in the stores over a month ago.
So I love the idea of Valentines Day,but I hate what it is commercially.

all you guys getting negative about valentines day are seriously missing the point. hey im not sentimental at all. im not emotional. i dont buy into commercialism. but all that doesnt matter.

every one of you shmoes that has a girlfriend or is married should know that women think totally different than men. they may even act stupid or do bad things or not pay attention to you. but that also does not matter.

all women expect something nice on valentines day. even if they havent got one thing in ten years. when valentines rolls around they still expect it.even if they know they wont get a thing they still hope. and for those that always give gifts all year long to their woman... those women feel the same way. all women want to feel special on valentines day. they dont want to be the woman that goes into work and sees 3 other women with flowers at their desks or balloons and candy when they have nothing. even if you just bought them a house they will feel like crud if they have nothing on this day and someone else got a 5 dollar box of candy.

women are that way. they are touchy feely. they put up with our macho bull all year long and our ignoring them while we fly online at nights. you think they enjoy that? this is the only day of the year for all women to feel someone cares about them and they want to be able to brag about it or let others see that someone loves them. and if you blow that off you really dont understand women at all.


now time is running out and if i have to spend my last 200 bucks in my bank account to take my girlfriend out to a french restaurant tonight you guys can at LEAST buy flowers.

ok im done ranting. and ill put away my soapbox until next year.

Well BlackShrike,at least you're in touch with your feminine side. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Seriously though,I understand what you are saying.But my point is that instead of pampering her and giving her what she EXPECTS one day out of the year,why not give her what she DOESN"T expect on the other 364 days of the year.Not to exclude V Day,just make everyday day V Day.

I'm not a shmoe,I just don't buy into that commercial **** of having to spend $ on a certain day of the year because it's "for her".
(Even though I will)

Make everyday "for her".Sure,pay extra attention to her on Feb.14th.Buy roses,send her a card,take her out to eat and blow the last 200 dollars in your bank account,give her a massage,light some candles,put on some romantic music and give her a night she won't forget. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It's the times when you do these things and she's NOT expecting them that will really make her feel special.

Since she has no concept of someone else's feelings, her only interest is in getting what she wants. And don't be fooled -- some apparently very "nice" girls are the greediest of them all."

Valentine's Day sucks when you're alone.

Besides, the only woman I want to spend time with is a real live airplane or sailing vessel.
