I know it's commercial, but I don't care.<br><br>
It's fun, and I look forward to it every year (even if I'm solo - - I send those little mini valentines to all my friends) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I don't really know what to put..<br><br><br><br>
Personally I treat it as just any other day.. But I guess I do go out of my way to be nicer on it..<br><br><br><br>
Just like everyother gift-giving holiday, I think it's become way too commercialized. And I'm fully not into that part.<br><br><br><br>
But I think the idea of it can be really sweet! Like I plan on picking my friend some flowers tomorrow! I think it's like anything, it's the thought that counts.<br><br>
You can spend $1000000 on something if you can afford it, but a simple flower, or even smile.. could mean more than the the expensive gift, as the thoughts there.<br><br><br><br>
I guess it's good since it makes more people be all "lovey".. and happy.. And I'm a strong supporter of HAPPINESS! YAY!<br><br><br><br>
But some people get really bitter about it, which I think is very uncalled for.<br><br>
If it's not your cup of tea, you don't need to knock it for others.<br><br><br><br>
Yeah I guess people could give flowers or whatever any other day.. Well.. Why don't they as well? There isn't a limit of days in the year when you can give you SO or good-friends gifts, or messages of love.<br><br><br><br>
The more love the better the world will be, but I don't really see Valentines day as a huge embassedor for love... But yeah, even if it makes one person more loving, for just one day.. then it's fully worth it!

I voted the first answer because I guess it fits best, although I wouldn't say I hate it. It's just that I am always so single! And I always end up having to babysit my siblings while my mom goes out with my stepdad who I don't really like for some "surprise" that she already knew about anyway, and was dreading because he always thinks of crap things to do with her. This year it is his work Christmas party which she didn't want to go to anyway and told him so, but he is making it out to be her surprise vday getaway. Go figure! But it doesn't make it a very happy holiday.<br><br><br><br>
ONE year there was a someone special (or on the verge of something at least) but I was sick with a killer flu, coughing, vomiting, couldn't talk or move basically, with a temp of about 103 degrees F. That wasn't my favorite day either.<br><br><br><br>
Sorry to be such a party pooper, but Valentine's day just doesn't ever bring me good feelings!

Even though I am getting married on Valentines day, we don't usually celebrate it at all. I think its kinda superfical and cheesy. The only reason I agreed to get married on this day is because its my grandparents 50th wedding anniversiry.

I think it's kinda sweet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ...though a bit too commercialized.

I voted <i>and I care because?</i> not just to be cynical but because I'm totally spoilt by my SO the whole year through so I don't usually think about valentines day that much. I totally forgot about it until someone at work asked me what I would be doing. But now that I've been reminded, I still wont be buying into that over-commercialized love crap <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It think it's crap. It's just another stupid Hallmark Holiday. There shouldn't need to be a reason to do something nice for someone. Flowers? Candy? Stuffed Animals? Ooh.. how creative and original. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:">

I could take it or leave it. We try to do nice things for each other throughout the year, so we don't really do anything special for V day. There may be some flowers, chocolates, and nekkid time involved, though.

It's mostly commercialized crap, but it is a good excuse to eat expensive chocolates and drink pink champagne.<br><br><br><br>
I think V-day is a conspiracy to make the single people feel bad about being single.

I used to really hate it and would even dress in black for the occasion <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">. However this year is a bit better as I'll be going home for the weekend to spend time with my mom and help her celebrate her birthday which is on 2/15 (for the first time in five years) so I am feeling more accepting about the whole day. So much so that today I am wearing pink <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Plus, I got a box from my veggieboard secret cupid (which I haven't opened yet) so that made me feel like someone cared <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I think it's overcommercialized crap, but I also look forward to spending time with my sweetie. Then again, I always look forward to spending time with my sweetie. So, yes, I did something nice for my sweetie, but I really don't care if he gets me a gift or something in return b/c he's awesome all the time.

I picked the last one, cause this year I actually have someone to spend it with <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Otherwise it's just another day for me really.<br><br><br><br>
I agree that it's way too commercialised, that's why I'm giving my bf some flowers picked out of my garden as well as the gift I bought him, and I also made a home-made card.<br><br><br><br>
It's the thought that counts, not how much you spend in my opinion <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I already answered in the other V-Day thread, so I'm not gonna repeat it here.
