    *sigh* Once again, the day I hate the most is here again. February 14th... Valentines day.

    Don't get me wrong here, Valentines day is a wonderful idea. Dedicating a whole day to that very special someone in your life, showing the many ways you love someone with maybe a romantic dinner, or just spending the evening with a good movie.

    Now, this would be true, for everyone that have had the fortune to meet that special someone. For us that haven’t, it just feels like a punch in the guts. Every time I walk past a store, I see valentines cards, hearts and all little doodads, every single time I feel depressed. Knowing that I still haven’t got a girlfriend, never have had that special someone beside me, never had someone to keep company during those cold and lonely nights... And always, I get that feeling, that I never will either, because I'm the most unattractive guy in the whole world, and no one could ever love someone like me.

    So yeah, I hate valentines day with a capital H. Anyone else?

    Dude, chin up. I used to feel the same way, thinking that happiness with another person was for everyone but me. Then I realized something. I wasn't the problem, they were. It's all about attitude and confidence. I became confident of myself. It took a while, but eventually I was the one turning away the girls. Don't let V-Day depress you. Instead, think of the woman you saw once who was dating the total jerk, you know who I'm talking about, and feel sorry for her.

    Just remember, confidence is the key.

    I also hate Valentines day with a passion for the same reason. I know my love life godddamm trainwreck, I don´t need a freaking special day to remind me of that.

    It's expensive and bullshit and I am ashamed that so many human beings buy in to it, including my girlfriend.

    I like the fact that chocolate gets marked down after valentines day.

    I <3 Valentines Day. It's probably better when you are a girl :D 

    Oh yeah mark downs are great! The same thing after Christmas.

    What you need to do is look foward to buying yourself some chocolate after Valentine's Day sales. Stop being so down and look to the future and look foward to that day you will meet that someone you are waiting for.

    We barely celebrate. We'll go out, but normally something relatively cheap but good, like Panera. My wife's one demand is a homemade construction paper card. Also cheap. Yea, wife!

    I try not to buy too much into the whole Greetings Card Industry's idealised Valentines Day, they just want you to spend your money on more shit, they have a few days throughout the year to keep them going between Christmas each year.

    I'll get my girlfriend a card and a small gift, but I hate the commercialisation of the day. I can fully appreciate the effect of the incessant advertising and products on people who are single as well.

    I despise Valentine's Day. I do like pink, though. So I guess it evens itself out.

    I don't understand how you're feeling, mainly because I've never really been interested in love and all that jazz. Just don't try to beat yourself up so much. And don't think you're the "most unattractive guy in the world" just because you can't find someone!

    Neither one of us is really into Valentine's Day, especially my girlfriend. She actually finds it kind of ridiculous. I expect if anything, we're probably going to order a pizza and watch a movie or something low key like that. It'll be just another day for us.

    The commercialisation of the day? There would be no day if it wasn't for the commercialism. It is nothing more than a name day for St Valentine and to be honest every day is a name day. The holiday is completely commercial.

    Personally I've gone through Valentine's day with and without a g/f and I don't celebrate either day.

    To the dude that started this thread, you are very hard on yourself. It is not your looks that is keeping you single it is your attitude. Heck even if a girl was interested in you, your confidence is so shot you wouldn't know it. Trust me I know I use to suffer from that problem.

    Screw this holiday it is nothing more than another way from the commercial machine to dip into our pockets. Love is a 365 day a year job not 1.

    Thanx

    P.S. This Valentine's day I am single and I have a woman taking me to go see my very first Toronto Maple Leafs game. As a Torontonian in a hockey town this is a huge event and guess what.....I'm not in love lol.

    For those that dont have someone for valentines day, you should go to the strip joints and reap the specials. :)

    Valentine's day is painful for me this year as there is a girli like, a lot. But i don't want to ask her out at this time because it's too predictable.

    This is why I love my girlfriend because we both see Valentines Day as a bullshit non-holiday. I feel that I don't need card, flower, and candy companies to tell me what day I should let my woman know I love her. Fuck all that noise. I love her everyday and make sure she knows it.

    We still use it as an excuse to get each other a few gifts like toys and shit, but we dont give cards or candy or flowers, we do that whenever we want. Our anniversary holds way more importance to us than February 14th, if we have any ONE special day it is that one.

    And what are we doing for dinner this Valentines Day? Let me just say my woman made us some reservations at a very special White Castle nearby...
