    It never even occurred to me that men despise Valentines Day.

    Maybe women expect too much, seems to me like flowers or a box of chocolates or even a single living red rose are not a big deal to think of, but give that warm fuzzy that you care that you're in a relationship and you bothered to do something to express your love for your partner, or your current romantic interest whatever the relationship is. I do suppose in this age of equality it should be a two way street, or its a kind of a sexist holiday.

    To me it matters that something is done, it matters not how small that thing is, but a box of chocolates without a card is much better than a card without a box of chocolates.

    Still learning stuff every day...

    Since I'm a hopeless loner, all Valentine's day means is clearance chocolate on the 15th. Which is okay, I guess.

    Helpful Tip to all guys who hate valentines day.

    Give you girlfriend some flowers and a kiss the day before valentines day and simply say

    "I love you everyday, I don't need one specific day to say that to you" and you will be off the hook for valentines day. Worked for me today. Hope it works for you.

    I think you missed the his point! And as far as having the latest toys...that depends what web site you are buying them from. I've made my wife pretty happy by buying her some of the latest electronic....if you know what I mean.

    My wife and I laugh at how silly it is. Yes, when we were young we celebrated it but not anymore. Here's what I did.

    If your significant other is all hyped for valentines day, don't do anything. Wait till a week after and woe them with a nice dinner, flowers, and love. And say to them that you don't need a specific day to show how much you love them. You love them no more on the 14th than the 13th, 15th, or any other day. No special day increases the love you have for them.

    They won't ever make a big deal anymore. And once you're married, your anniversary will be more important than valentines day.

    It should work. Well...at least it worked for me.*

    It's a good idea, indeed BUT..... ( uh oh... he said but...)
    First of all, I never quite got the the concept of buying DEAD flowers.
    It's nice to give them, but don't you wonder how she feels a week later as she throws them in the garbage?

    I always buy a plant!.....something that will live on!

    Yeah I get that he's not saying they force you.

    I am curious how he feels about having the latest and greatest electronics, cars, clothing, etc...I think you get my point...pushed by corporations. Probably not an issue to run out and get those things. Yet holidays are an issue????

    I can just imagine you cringing in a corner cramming mounds of chocolate into your mouth.

    Folks? We all need to send thurask a HAPPY V CARD so he doesn't OD on all that candy.

    (besides... he's irreplaceable here!)

    I think it's more about what valentine's day represents for women. You should feel worse for the people who don't have anyone caring for them on valentines
    Having done Valentines attached and unattached, I much prefer doing it unattached. No ridiculous expectations, overpriced "specials" at crowded restaurants, etc. It's so much easier to watch a good movie!

    Well, let's look at the motive!
    It's the "roll in the hey!"

    So, instead of wining and dining her just ask her straight out...

    "Have you eaten?" Great!
