Your Best Valentine's Day Stories

Everybody's got at least one, so put 'em up here!

Adam: Look guys, I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

that time three years ago when you said you wouldn't kill me since it was valentine's day.

and your heart beats so slow through the sleet and driving snow, across the fields of mourning lights in the distance...
ME! all day, every day!

1996 I went to see the Ramones while girlfriend stayed home, she couldn't believe I'd rather spend Valentine's with Joey than her ...surprisingly she married me in 1998.

Well, there's one good story in the making, I think.

Amazingly enough, the two I was with my ex we were apart (it was a long distance thing). We did call each other and open the gifts we mailed each other, so that was kind of sweet and special to me.

Other than that, they have all sucked.
This year looks to be shaping up to be the same way.

My love bought me roses, but put them in the refrigerator until he could get them to me. His plan was to give them to me that night when I was at work. Unfortunately, they froze in his fridge and turned black!

I married him the next year anyway!

I don't have any Valentines stories but here's a good one. Last year at school (I'm currently a high school senior) this boy I know bought his girlfriend roses and gave one rose to each of her teachers before school. As she went to her classes, each of the teachers gave her the rose from him. So she got a new rose every 45 minutes. I thought it was a simple, romantic gesture. She's a lucky girl

That sounds kinda familiar.. Like every single year of my entire life except for this year. I can't even really trying to outdo my whole prom suit with flowers and stuffed animals in the hospital thing, and she actually told me i'm not supposed to get her anything, but I'm going to give her my Running to Stand Still painting, a card, and perhaps a rose, then we're going out for dinner. Pretty standard. And then the big huge bummer is that The Weakerthans (one of my favourite bands) is playing in London of all places tomorrow night, so I'm going there, but unfortunately Melissa isn't allowed to come, which for me sucks a lot because when i found out they were playing I imagined how perfect it would be with her along, and I was all planning on it and then *kerthunk* not happening. so that was a bit of a bummer. I mean it will still be awesome, but GAH!

I'm shutting up now.

Valentine's day 1999. My wife finds out I have an online girlfriend and we are having a BDSM relationship.

She moved out. I'm divorced now.

My freshman year of high school was when I had my first date. However, he dumped me at the dance for this dork who would sit and pick her nose and eat it in class (yeah, WTF???). I was left crying on the curb, waiting for my sister to pick me up. However, she ended up dumping him on Valentine's Day.

It made my day!

Hmm. My junior year of college, I had a piano literature class (I was a piano major) with only 3 other people in there. One of them (who is now a close friend) I got to know through that class and liked her from the start. (Erm...this is going to sound geeky for anyone who's not into classical music, but...) When we were studying Liszt, she said that she thought Franz Liszt was quite handsome and romantic. So I decided to surprise her on Valentines with a card from Franz Liszt - spent some time looking for some good pictures on the net and put together a little v-day card where Liszt confessed his feelings for her. (Yeah, I'm a sweetheart )

Anyway, she loved it and invited me over for dinner. I helped her out making spaghetti and we shared a quiet dinner together getting to know each other better. And then we spent some time on the couch looking through photos of her Europe trip and just talking (nothing happened! If it did, I'd be bragging now! ).

That was the best Valentines I've had. To this day she says that v-day card is the sweetest thing anyone's done for her. Unfortunately nothing romantic came of that, but oh well, can't win em all, I suppose.

Two years ago, my girlfriend (now ex) and I flew to Paris for Valentine's Day...pretty cool! Very romantic.

P.S. Bonochick, this was supposed to be post your good story, not one how you were dumped for a nose-picker.

Two years ago, my then boyfriend let me read the journal I had given him for Christmas. There were only two pages written, but it was about how much he loved me, and felt as though he was with the one person who understood and loved him for who he is. He said he loved everything about me, and always would. He never wanted to be with anyone else again, and was ready to make the commitment to grow old with me. He said he wanted to marry me.

Things have changed since then, but looking back, it makes me remember what it's like to really be in love. It gives me hope that someday I might find that kind of love again.

I have a really standout Valentine's day to look back on as of yesterday. I'd tell you all about it but I'm tired and I'm going to bed as soon as Bullet Proof (I wish I was) is over, unless i get addicted to another song.

No...it WAS good! He didn't ditch me for the nosepicker on Valentine's Day...she dumped him on Valentine's Day! So it was good for me!

The year my hubby took me to see a Spanish ballad singer.
My husband is not into smoochy songs, he doesn't speak Spanish and I didn't even ask him to take me.
