    They actually had a giraffe, but it looked sinister. She does like that one Eddie Izzard sketch, though.

    The actual reason is the movie Indecent Proposal. At the end Woody Harrelson gets Demi Moore back after selling her to a millionaire by spending all his money on a hippo. We watched it together and my GF told me that would always be my get-out clause: buying a hippo.

    We got together on valentine's day last year so this is actually our anniversary. The hippo is an apology for not having come up with a better present.

    As I said: could go really well, could go really fucking badly.
    one million billion trillion times better than buying some fucking flowers and a card. THIS is what valentines day should be about.

    embarrassingly this is the first v day I plan to partake in...but i dont understand...am i supposed to plan the whole day/evening and expect her to be ok with it (or more likely not be happy with it)? or ask her what she wants to do, it seems like she wants me to plan it and still somehow have her be happy...wtf o_0

    Yeah basically you plan and pay for everything and years later she moans about how terrible it actually was.

    Could try booking a spa/massage though, that tends to be a pretty safe choice.

    either that or tie a red ribbon round your cock, and shout "surprise" whilst opening your raincoat. ;->

    Don't pay stupid prices for stuff just because people say you should. It's nonsense.

    You can do something far cheaper and just as nice, if not nicer. Why not create a "night in box" - partner's favourite drink, some popcorn/chocolates and a new movie or something she's been wanting to see. Then you can just have a nice evening together. Cheaper, thoughtful, leads to sex. Boom!

    Well I would, but we live together in a student house; so staying in to watch a movie is how we spend a lot of our time together :-/
    I can't even decide where in the heirarchy of poshness to go for food wise; I found a place where I know she'll like the food on the menu and is affordable, but is a bit informal; and a few places where it's posh, food is ok, prices are extortionate.
    can we not just celebrate it on another day?! this is stupid.

    Dude, go to the place that's affordable, with good food you know she's like. It's not about how much you spend, and if it is, she's not worth it ;)

    yeah, I was more just worried about the atmosphere, but you're right, I think I'll go to the cheaper/nicer place and then we can always go somewhere nice afterwards or something.
    This is the most organised I've ever been :)

    Hehe she'll appreciate it all I'm sure! Even if she moans about the "commercialism" of it all...

    Luckily my GF isn't a brainwashed idiot so she thinks valentines day is as shit as me. Is there anything less romantic than being told to be only on a certain day?

    And if that's how you're meant to treat a woman, then surely only doing it once a year just highlights how badly you treat her the rest of the time?

    On another note though, I hear going into town on valentines day is good because there are a lot of desperate single women.

    I never got the point of it either. One day of organised fun then back to ignoring her the next day. But I guess some women like the grand gestures so they can brag about it to their girlfriends, I know my gf does.

    Restauramts are generally rubbish on Valentines Day as well, they only have set menus an its just reheated. Don't bother going anywhere fancy, you will get ripped off.

    I don't mind having the big romantic gestures, just not at the same night as every other couple in the country are having there's.

    I blame the sheep mentality

    I cursed the day I was ejected onto this miserable planet.

    So pretty much the same as every other day :-)

    My books, contests, reviews and author interviews on my blog

    Bought each other identical cards which is probably a good sign right before we get married! Stayed in, ordered pizza, watched a film, ordered our wedding rings (ouch), had super awesome fun time.

    @TechnoHippy
    :) so nothing then? I spent it in bed with missus, nothing kinky. We both have a terrible flu at the moment. Spent most of the day asleep :'(

    I bitched about it being a corporate holiday for idiots. The girlfriend agreed and we stayed in with a tikka from Iceland, watched TV and languished in our smug dullness. In bed and asleep by nine and didn't waste a penny or a moment on romance like all the suckers!

    Actually because I am not a miserable tight bastard I did send flowers and took the missus out for a massive steak and a few whiskies at Gaucho Grill, walked to a cab and went home for some shagging.

    Any woman who isn't afraid to use a strap-on on her man gets a thumbs up from me.
