So, Valentine's Day is approaching in America; but I'm not sure about the rest of you guys outside of the states. ^^'

Anyway, do you plan to do anything special this Valentine's Day?

Are you going to spend the day with your other half? Or maybe take a chance and ask out the love of you life?

As for me, I'm taking on the latter. I'm going to gather up the courage to ask out a girl that I've loved for a long while now. I hope it goes over well ^^

Good luck!

As for me, we don't celebrate Valentine's Day in Brazil.
We have something that's kinda like it in the 12th of June, though. There's no tradition of giving chocolate or asking people out, though- it's just a day where you give a gift to your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/whatever [and not someone you want to be your girlfriend, for instance].

Valentines' Day is just a marketing ploy.

Can anyone justify why you should love your other half less and show less affection towards them on the other 364 days of the year?

I will be taking a series of trains to Dorchester, where I will be seeing my girlfriend, Camisado (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=75120), and having a day to ourselves. =3

True.
But, if they didn't have Valentine's Day wouldn't people be saying that there should be a day to celebrate love?
Sure, your argument would come back into play... but, it's just like saying no-one needs to celebrate their birthday because you shouldn't need a reason to celebrate someone you care for.
So, Valentine's day is just like a birthday... for all the couples of the world. =)

But I always spend time with my girlfriend.
But meh it really is just a marketing ploy

Well, seeing as everyone else is saying what they're doing... I guess I will too.
I will in fact be celebrating Valentine's Day by having a party with my friends and the girl that I like is going to be there, so... maybe I'll swallow my pride and ask her out.

I will be... oh, nice, I'll be home relaxing before I get a move on studying for my first Calculus midterm the next week. :P But yeah, no one "special" to spend it with and I don't really care. I adore romance in fictional settings but honestly if I had a boyfriend or girlfriend any extra affection or anything would just make me feel awkward so I don't mind sitting around at home doing nothing. XD;

Lots of people need special occasions for that stuff. I mean, you can't go all out for your significant other every day of the year. You don't even have to follow the commercialized version--just spend some time with or do something special with the person or people you care about. :( Everyone's always so cynical about it.

To be honest, I'd rather just spend Valentine's Day just doing what I've done almost everyday so far, spending it with the one I love the most. And that's really the greater treat in the long run.

I believe that's called an anniversary.

Also, just in regards to birthdays. A Birthday celebrates your birth, not specifically you, much like an engagement celebrates the 'birth' of a relationship.

As a non religios non christian I celebrate Christmas as a coming together of friends and family at the end of the year to reflect on the previous year. I'm sure others are purely present oriented, but the whole point is we should try and eliminate this, much like Valentine's Day.

Swift!
February 4th, 2009, 12:31 AM
Ok, here's my final thought on this.

Birthday - Christmas
Anniversary - Valentine's Day

Therefore, anyone who wants to get rid of Valentine's Day should also want to get rid of Christmas.
Sure, some people would say; "Fine, get rid of both of them." But still...

I really don't care for Valentine's Day. It's just another meaningless day in the year.

I can. Not everybody has the cash to spend on random expensive dates. That's obviously not something everybody can just go out and do.

I agree it's a great marketing scheme but it gives couples incentive to get off their butts and go out and do something. My fiance and I probably wouldn't randomly go out to an expensive dinner and date but we can say "Well, it's Valentines day." and then treat ourselves to it.

I don't think its usually the girl who does the asking, but even so, I'd be too shy to ask my crush out. And yeah, Valentines is a marketing ploy. And yes, I will be spending it handing out chocolates to my friends, and to a few random people, if I have any left over...like every other year.

It's pretty special, but I am not really that social.

Psh, you better ask that girl out or you'll hear much nagging from me >.>

Is maybe joking

Well, since I have no interest in love whatsoever, plus the fact that our week-long break begins around that time, I really have nothing planned. Unless you count visiting my dad for the whole week we have off, but I visit him at least once a month nowadays, though it only occurs on holiday weekends.

So yeah. I'll probably receive candy from my parents, but that'll be about it. There's absolutely no chance of me somehow falling in love before the 14th XD

I personally dont mind Valentines Day. It's a really nice holiday for couples to really just spend a day together.
What I dont like about it is how many people like to commercialize on it. It's not that I think that profiting off this holiday is wrong, but some companies get carried away in the advertising and such and it really annoys me. I just kinda think it's insensitive to throw this holiday in the faces of singles. That being said, I think Valentines day is only any fun IF you have someone to share it with, or someone you intend to confess/propose/whatever to.
Beyond that, it's really nothing more than another day to me.

Love. That is a word tossed around to much. How do you know that you love her? I mean, you have to go out with her first. She could end up being completely different when you date. I mean, you could think you love her, but I actually think people use it to much.

Anyways, referring to the topic, nothing. I am doing nothing. I have no one special, and I am no one's special person. I do not plan on it either. I want it to be a person that I actually can talk to, and stuff. I mean, I know a lot of people, but none of them really give that vibe.

Too true. But believe me, I love her. It's hard to explain, but after just four small years of knowing her, my feelings for her have skyrocketed.

Anyway, to add on to my own thread, Valentines is one of my favorite holidays; commercialization or not.

I only like it for the candy XD

I love sugary foods, ADD or not! But yeah.

I hope everyone else has a great Valentines Day. And Limey will feel my wrath if he does not ask that girl out Though I don't see how someone who hasn't asked someone out yet can really "love" them. Not to turn it into a huge other subject, but if you haven't asked the person out/haven't been dating them for too long, how is it that you can feel "love" towards them? 'Cause after all, the guy I once thought I was in love with turned out to be a complete failure. So really, I don't see how one could "love" someone when they haven't even asked them out or have dated them long.

Butbutbut, if they've been friends long enough, I can understand that :3

Don't turn this into another discussion about my one little remark, please DX

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
February 4th, 2009, 06:12 PM
ah! teh ebil commercialization!

anyhoo...nope, probably not. Valentine's isn't such a big thing in the UK and tbh, there aren't any girls that I'm interested in atm. I don't see the point in asking someone out who I don't like, just for one essentially meaningless day.

^ Yeah, same here, even though a lot of people I know are in relationships...

My other half is a theatre technician, so he'll be busy on the 14th, but I asked him a few weeks back if we could postpone Valentine's seeing as though I don't have a job and can't afford a present. Embarrassingly, we're both overtly extravagant people; so we get each other little gifts all the time, and we don't generally make a massive fuss over Feb 14th.

Although last year...my present was turtles ^___^

I'm working on Valentine's Day, but at least not in the floral department. Which is a fortunate thing. Everyone wants to get their flowers, balloons, stuffed bears, and cards on the actual holiday instead of a day before. So it's busy in the floral departments of all grocery stores in America. XD

Other than hiding out at work, I'm not doing anything special on that day. For one thing, I'm single, so there's no special person for me to spend time with with. Even if there was, I don't need the card stores/flower shops telling me to show that person that I care for them. =P

I am going to just hang out with my coworkers who are also single and either complain that we are or laugh at the people who come into the store late at night looking for a good rose.

Other than work, though, there's nothing to remind me that the day is Valentine's Day. Except for the cheap candy. So February 14th is just another day.
