Who thinks Valentines day is a stupid day?
I DO

I just wanted to see what y'all think about V. Day,

I hate it because this year I HAD a boyfriend, and he dumped me early February, so it leaves me alone just before V. day. This sucks...

Anyway, what are your thoughts?

EDIT: Me and my friends have disowned V. day and we now celebrate Best Friends day, so now me and my Best mates go to town or something.

Seriously, I don't care at all for V-Day. I've never liked it, even as a kid. I'm single, yes, but that's not the reason why I don't like it. I just don't like how commercialized it is . The fact is, you don't need a specific day to run to Hallmark to buy a card and some chocolates for your sweetheart. >_>

I think it's really annoying because I had someone yelling at me on the phone about it today. The woman wanted to make reservations at the restaurant I work at but didn't call in advance so we had no space left at the time she wanted. 9_9 Stupid woman was so rude.

Ahaha, but Valentine's Day itself? I don't really mind it. I LOVED it as a kid because it usually meant free candy and chocolate and usually schoolwork would be interrupted for a day of mindless celebration. XD

I usually end up hating it. All my friends are single and they end up complaining about it all day, putting me in a depressing and/or annoyed mood all day.

I see it as another day, really.

Dating is troublesome, so it's never been a holiday of romance for me, just a time to find plenty of candy around to share with your friends. I usually just make simple gifts for my friends and family, and leave it at that. =p

I don't mind Valentine's Day. I still do receive gifts from friends and family. It's not like you have to have a significant other and be happy to celebrate it. Not to mention that Valentine's Day is also my father's birthday.

I just...more or less ignore it. :x Valentine's Day is a day like every other, as far as I'm concerned. I don't tend to do anything for it (at least, within recent years), and if I get anything myself then hey, cool. If not, oh well.

Though I do really dislike the commercialism that surrounds it. "You HAVE to buy your woman this really expensive diamond bracelet or she'll HATE YOU FOREVER!!", that kind of stuff. I think I wanted to smash in my radio the last time I heard a commercial like that, hmph.

V. Day is like any ordinary day for me.
Though I am kinda annoyed by these red cards here and there, red balloons here and there and new posters in the bulletin boards in red here and there IN OUR SCHOOL...

That is really annoying... But oh well...
I wouldn't care if V. Day will become a legal holiday, I always treat it like any ordinary day. And that's that!

But even so, it's always nice to be greeted by your friends, and it lets you know that they care for you. =3

And that's my opinion. Happy Valentines PC! <3

Normally it's just an "Oh, yeah, it's Valentine's Day" thing for me. I am handing out candy to my friends at school tomorrow. Candy's fun to get and stuff, but I don't think you really need a specific day to tell someone you love them. And I really don't like romantic things in general and I don't date or anything, so whatever. Hating it just because you're always single is silly, though, because that's pretty much admitting that you'd probably like it if you weren't.

I don't care too much for Valentines Day. Relationships sux and people make too big a deal over it. I like it because I get free chocolate, though. :'D

Aww, I love V-day.... All these 'pointless' holidays have are alright. It's a day where everyone isn't so dull. Mindless celebration is good for the soul :)

But the commercialism IS extremely annoying...

I started hating Valentine's Day last year when I spend a lot of money on Teddy Bears and passed them out to my special female friends. Didn't get a thank you from any of them, and one even REFUSED to take the gift.

I rather Dislike the holiday mainly b/c of the fact that Its pretty pointless if you're single and there's wayyyy too much pink involved
for those that really want a treat check out the spoiler in my sig. it contains one of the best descriptions of the holiday I've heard yet.

I have mixed feelings over Valentine's Day. Never really celebrated it. Got broken up with on it once. But I don't let myself get depressed over it. I can't see my boyfriend tomorrow (unless he surprises me), but I'm not upset. It's just a minor holiday - nothing to get worked up over.

...Let me sum this up as briefly as I can: "Valentine's Day" is simply a veiled attempt for companies to prey on the weak minds of the populous, and it should be treated as such.

Ya, it's basicaly just another day for me aswell.. I don't hate it though.
I'm sure if I was actually in a relationship right now, I would be saying the opposite thing.. I'm a big giver, I love giving presents to the people I care about.
Is that a bad thing?:P

Well I've never been the flower giving/receiving type, but it's only a bit of fun really the day. In the past Valentines Day hasn't mean't a thing to me, but this year it's marked a signifcant change in my life, as last night (day before V. Day) me and who I believe is my true love got together and are officially a couple now, so I couldn't be happier!

Valentines day is kind of fun, I like to get all the candy. XD
I love getting chocolate from my parents on VDay, who doesn't love chocolate, right? XD

Lol, confectionary... none of that on Valentine's over here.
Anyway, my better half knows I love her — I can't imagine we'd need a special day for it. On the whole, I've never celebrated St. Valentine's Day and don't really care for it.

You're not the only one, sweetie. I got my close friend a Buneary toy, candy, and sung her a poem. -///- I never told my parents because I have a feeling they will laugh, hard. XD

This is coming from a guy who HATES Valentine's day. >>

I really enjoy it, although... I hardly even associate it with romance since I don't have a significant other. XD It's just a day that I get (and give) lots of free chocolate and gifts from my family members.

There's also the fact that cute, pink stuff is almost everywhere and that makes me a happy person. ♥

Well, I can say I don't "Love" Valentine's day, but I certainly don't hate it.

I mean, today for instance I was given a stuffed animal by a girl and I gave a stuffed animal I bought back to her, and we sorta hugged each other at the end. :\ So I guess I can't hate it.

I love this day :>! I mean, you get free candy in class, everyone is generally cheerful AND THERE'S CHOCOLATE <3 I dunno, I always thought it was a fun day growing up and still today, even if I don't have a boyfriend.

I don't really care for it :x I am only making a big deal out of it right now cause its the first time I am accutly spending it with someone. The day is kind of pointless though. You really should express you love to someone everyday and not just on a holiday. Which is what I try to do. I guess this day is just a excuse for me to spoil my girlfriend XD

I dislike it. It kind of annoys me, how everyone around me is all giggly and mushy. XP Yup. >.<

The day makes it painfully aware that I don't have anyone to spend it with (despite what my sig says). I've never spent Valentine's Day with anyone closer to me than my best friends. Today, my three friends and I walked for a few good miles.

Really, it's just a day for me to sit in the corner and watch everyone else get things from friends, family, and their significant others. I just get shoved into a pond. xP

V.Day is well....just like any other day at school,
The only thing good about it is giving a rose to a girl you really like xD

I don't really care....nothing special....for me xD

When I had a girlfriend It's a kind of different... But know It's a normal day.... Really I only spend With my frinds drinking a $2 Rum (In my country we don't use $ to many so I'm making a comparison) With makes me a Stomachache....

Ya preatt stupid and scary.....

PD: I not got drunk..... XD

Valentine's is just a normal day for me. Is it even a real holiday? Or was it invented by companies to make more money? Eh, I dunno.

I gave the girl that I liked chocolates on Valentine's though. She took it as a friendly gesture. Ouch. xD

Okay. I don't just hate V. Day because I am alone, it's because everyone else isn't alone. They are like:

'Oh, i'm getting my boyfriend this! isn't it cute'
And then, camera lens on me, on my own, in the corner, drowning in my own sorrow, it sucks...

I can't really say I hate it, since it's the day of one of my good friends birthday, and his name is Valentino. Wow.

But I guess I don't really celebrate Valentines day, I guess I would if I had a partner.

Eh, its alright. This year was a bit weird, becuase I dated the same girl all four years of highschool, and we broke up in october. The first vday alone in 5 years! it wasnt so bad.

'Oh, i'm getting my boyfriend this! isn't it cute'
And then, camera lens on me, on my own, in the corner, drowning in my own sorrow, it sucks... I agree. It's annoying. I hate that people have to throw things like that in one's face. It's like people couples saying "Ha ha! I have someone special and you don't because you're single. :P I'm so happy with this person and no one likes you." That's mean. I had 2 people ask me to be their Valentine in 10th grade. (2 years ago) I said "no" to the girl (she likes girls) who asked me in the girls' locker room, but I said "yes" to the boy in the school library. Those were the only two people to ever ask me to be their Valentine. Sigh. Valentine's day is 10 days before my birthday. (Feb. 24th.)

Valentines day is okay :P
This was the only year I had a bf so it was good :D
I dont understand why people hate V.day so much tho ._.

I think people don't like it because either...
1. They're single, and feel left out. (Like me.)
2. Don't want to buy expensive gifts (jewelry) for the other one.
3. They just think it's stupid.
4. It's like people couples saying "Ha ha! I have someone special and you don't because you're single. :P" and people don't like that.
5. It's an excuse to spend a lot of money on useless things.

I don't care about getting gifts from someone, it's just nice to be with someone who ACTUALLY cares about you. (Even though, I'm single.)
