Valentine's Day Angst-o-Rama

Well, it's coming: in nine days it'll be VALENTINE'S DAY, perhaps the most feared holiday all year. Singles hate it (or ignore it) because they have no "special someone" at the moment; couples (especially guys, I think) dread it because of the outpouring of affection/gifts the day requires.

So: is it a dumb holiday? Will you be celebrating it? Are you opposed to its elimination? Share Valentine's Day thoughts, opinions, and anxiety here.

I used to celebrate SAD (Singles Awareness Day).

This year I get presents, though!

But it's the day after I get my wisdom teeth removed.

Valentine's Day sucks.

I've got nobody. But happy Valentine's Day to everybody who has a special one around.

my single friends and I will be celebrating it by having a lonely hearts dinner , going to Midtown Atlanta to look at the "Mile of Men" haha! yes, a local radio station has gathered a bunch of single men to make up a mile and will have them lined up on a street in Atlanta on Valentines! this should provide me with some good entertainment after i have had a few drinks! and later on we will head out to some bars and clubs it shouldn't be a terrible day, at least i hope not!

eh, its just another day and another reason for retailers to guilt everyone into thinking they need to buy things or risk looking like bad husbands/wives/boyfriends/girlfriends/partners, etc.

It used to be important to me but in the last few years, not so much.

It's purely commercial...a conspiracy by the candy and flower industries, to get us to spend more money on candy that will rot our teeth and make us fat, and flowers that will be dead the next day.





















okay I'm just bitter that I won't have a valentine this year

It's silly to pick one day to celebrate love because I celebrate it everyday.

I have no opinion. There is someone I care about, but don't plan on sending him anything that day. Valentine's Day is cheesy.
It's for kids... remember those cute Valentines we used to give out in class? That was fun. As for adults... it's a Hallmark holiday.
