    Same here but without the sex :)


    Oh, that's a big difference isn't it? :(

    Yeah this is the point I was making with the above. It is all about having an excuse to do these things. Imo, valentines day - like christmas - represents one of those excuses. And I'm happy for that.

    it really puzzles me the effort people go to to see their family at xmas, a time when nothing is open, transport routes run at half their normal operating rate yet a time when everyone else is over-using it during a weather period which is inhospitable at best.

    its like how everyone goes into town early on a saturday to "beat the rush".

    You can, like I said, but it just so happens that today is the day a lot of people are doing it and I'm not petulant enough to purposely not buy flowers just because everyone else is. I like having an excuse to do something nice for her, valentines day is one of those excuses. If you people really can't see this and can only focus on the fact that it is a commercialised holiday then I feel for you. As it stands this is just a nice day where we both do something nice for each other and put just a tiny bit of extra effort into our relationship.

    Keep fighting the system while I'm having freaky sex. I'm sure Rage Against the Machine and your girlfriend really appreciate it. :)
    i dont think anyones really having a go at you mowgli (and im glad the debate is light hearted), you can choose to do your romancing with your partner at any time of the year and its nice that you and the missus do something every sunday, but too much importance is focussed on this day.

    i think what grates the most is the idea that these things are forumlaic, you have one day where you HAVE to do something romantic, and the idea of that romance is a card, chocolate, flowers etc. i certainly dont subscribe to that being the idea of romance and im sure you and a great number of people on here dont either.

    this wouldnt be so bad if i hadnt had a glut of people this year saying "so what are you doing for valentines for your gf?" and then feeling the wrath of disaproval when i say "nothing". its up to me and her when we choose to be romantic with each other, not mr hallmark.

    and besides, anyone who has to jump through hoops in order to get sex obviously isnt doing it right :op

    my point (blunt and ignorant as it is) is that if you need an excuse in the first place, theres something wrong.

    But I'm not saying you need an excuse, it is just nice (imo) to have another one. I think I don't have a problem with it because I don't work at the moment so am not exposed to the daily pressures and people asking me what I will be doing. My opinion will probably change when I start working full time.

    Though if there is something wrong, sometimes an excuse - or reminder - can be a catalyst for improved quality of relations...

    So, getting a Happy Valentines Day text from an ex you may or may not have drunkenly accidentally attempted (but failed) to booty call a night or two previously... What does that mean then?

    It means her accidental drunken booty call to someone else also failed ;)

    relationships always take effort, all of the time, you're never going to foster a good relationship with anyone or anything unless you put the work in. the good news is that when you truly love someone or something, it doesnt feel like effort at all.

    That would actually probably be a best case scenario! I'm going with this explanation.

    If your chat-up techniques are lacking, you can skip the small talk, by applying traumatic force to the back of her head.

    No matter what you guys think of today, a lot of girls think quite a lot of it. If you don't make some semblance of effort, they'll bitch about you to their friends, guaranteed.

    We don't do presents, i am cooking dinner. Its not like i dont cook her dinner at other times, but gotta make sure that she has SOME story to tell her mates tomorrow without them all bitching about me :D

    One of the days you wish you were in a gay relationship.

    "What shall we do today?"
    "Bolton/Spurs in the FA Cup."
    "Down the pub it is then. Sorted."

    You know you've found 'the one' when she's happy to watch the match with you.

    I gave my missus a card that I forgot to give her last year. Job done. I even get to watch the rugby. Wasn't allowed out drinking with my bro for the football though

    Well happy and won't keep bringing it up for the next ten years. But such girls do exist. One of my closest mates is one of them. Always "letting" her BF out... although to be honest, she's the one usually out drinking, while he works constantly.
