I didn't have a valentine - in fact, my love life is pathetic right now - but I had a great time with a mixed group of friends, having drinks, dinner and laughs.

I'm sorry yours sucked! :(

Well, my bf and I kept getting into these mini arguments.

But I wouldn't say it sucked.

I've decided to not celebrate V-Day anymore....it's way overrated :(

Mine sucked....bf and i didn't have a good day. Maybe I take v-day too seriously? He could have at least gotten me something...our views on v-day are totally different.

This was the first V. Day I got to enjoy in 4 years....but we didn't see eachother until 10PM (he got stuck at work, I took a long nap waiting)...so my mental outlook was OK, but we'll have to celebrate V. Day again this weekend.

LOL sorry but that sounds funny.....but you're better than me

When my bf says something that hurts my feelings, I fire back at him with something equally hurtful....I know, I know, I've got lots of growing up to do!!

Mine sucked because I could not be with my bf this year. It is long distance, and he is in the middle of dealing with some serious family problems right now, and that kept us apart. :(

:hug: To all.

I hate valentines day, there is WAY too much pressure to be perfect and have the perfect day. Why should this one day be perfect when none of my others are?? I told the bf NOT to do anything, we've pretty much never done anything in the 7 years we've dated. This year he suprised me with flowers (cheap because I hate it when he spends lots of something htats going to die), and a huge bag of cut up broccoli, oh and he did the dishes. He also had the day off. The main reason he did all of that is because we got in a HUGE fight earlier in the week and I was really hurt by it..

Honestly I think it's better not to have expectations of the day, and if you do to talk about it with your significant other and come up with something you both agree on.

And there always is the weekend!

Swim girl ~ SOOOO TRUE i guess i pumped it up way to much
oh and by the way our fight last night was about the forums we are on HE is on a bobybuilding forum and im here so of course you can see the difference in dieting that we cant see eye too eye on
I was kinnda mean telling him that those chicks on his forum all look like men do to the fact they do steriods (sp?) and have no boobs I guess thats why he fired back with what he said
JERK LOL

I'm perpetually single...Yesterday I got stuck in the Nor'Easter.... I left work at 330 so I could get home ok cause of the weather and it was torrential down pouring and icing and I had no umbrella.... The streets were flooded so by the time I got from my office to the train station my jeans were soaked to mid-thigh, I got splashed by cars driving really fast through the flooded slush-water... I got to my second round of trains to get out of the city and all my trains were delayed so I had to sit at the station for an hour and wait....while soaked.... only to get home where the weather had been all snow and had to push a car out of the snowbank. Overall my commute took nearly 4 hours.... I couldn't get to the gym cause the roads were to bad.

The only valentines I got was a card from my parents reminding me how much money I owe them and chocolate which I'm trying not to eat.... and a 'happy valentines ' instant message from my 'friend with benefits' who told me all about the dinner he was having out with someone else. And to add the icing on the cake it was day one of TOM.
I went home alone, hung out with my cat & had a glass of wine!
(don't get me wrong....I'm not complaining...more having a good chuckle about how bad my luck can really be somedays....Valentines day is so overrated!)

Let's see my V-day started with me shoveling my vehicle out to go to work. The dreaded EX stopped by with a big Valentine bag for DD (if he didn't we both would have killed him), sent text messages to my friends wishing XOXOXOXO to all, worked late, took DD to gymnastics, downloaded cheer music at home, ate two valentine cookies that DD couldn't take to school because it was a snow day, went to bed. Basically a typical day I guess.

Maybe my love life will become more than me loving to watch Love Jones over and over and over.....

I can't stand Valentine's Day and other "holidays" that make people feel pressured to buy a card or candy or something. It's sad how a lot (maybe all) holidays have lost their true meaning and become more materialistic.

I had a good vday but we don't celebrate it. We had leftovers for dinner, watched tv together and do what we normally do on any day. No exchange of gifts.

Angie and I exchanged cards from each other, e-mailed each other a card and exchaged cards from each other to mom and dad from our retrievers! I made macaroni and cheese from a new recipe I saw, Angie made salad. I watched American Idol, she read a book. Angie went to bed, I fell asleep in my chair. Married! ;)

I won't ever forget the first few years though ;) :carrot: :woohoo: :woohoo: :cheer: :woohoo: :woohoo: :cheer2: :woohoo: :woohoo: :carrot:

I had a bit of a bad day. I went through a bad break-up in December. I've been fine, but yesterday it seemed like every one of my friends wanted to call me and whine about their own love lives (whether it was because they were long-distance and missing the person, because the person didn't treat V-Day with hearts and stars and roses, whatever). It shouldn't have affected me so much, but I could not help but feel as though they were at least lucky to have someone and I had to go home and cry.

Then I went to the gym, made a sandwich, and watched TV while decidedly ignoring the motion I have to have drafted by Friday. I guess it turned out all right.

I think your avatar reflects that LOL!!

My v-day was a normal day except for exchanging verbal "Happy Valentine's Day" to a few people. I found this photo on a labrador chat board that I also belong to. It is just priceless.

My Valentines Day?

Well, let's see. My boyfriend sent me cheap flowers with a card saying he thought it was about time he "moved onto greener pastures", so I spent my evening plotting the eminent demise of his 1973 Corvette with a friend of mine.

Other than that, I exercised, played with my dogs, went for a swim, and stayed on-plan for the day. So mreh, I guess it all comes out in the wash.

Our 4 legged babies are so cute!!! My "littlest" came to us at age 11 months, so I'll never know what he looked like as a pup, but he is cute now.

An awful, unfun disagreement with the boyfriend. He made a beautiful dinner for me- my favorite- but I was too stuck wallowing in my sadness to really enjoy it. It was a bummer.

Then you've got to join the labrador chat board. I'm really a newbie there, but it is so fun to look at the photos of everyone's dogs. I don't know if I can post the link here, but I found it by Googling Labrador Chat.

I had a fabulous valentines day!!...after a scrumptious meal that I made for dh (steak, roasted veggies, roasted sweet potatoes and pudding/fruit parfait) I went to bed (ALONE) at 8:30 when ds did and slept until he needed fed at FIVE a.m.

8 1/2 uninterrupted hours of sleep. Sheer bliss.

Married...2 kids.

I did make Valentines bags and cards for my 2 kids ages 21 and 14 and they both liked them. I didn't see DH because he pulled a 16 hr. shift yesterday .My SD that has been here with her 2 kids for 10 days left and went to my MIL's (thank God) so that was an awesome VD gift for me. I just kicked back, watched a movie and played cards with my DD. It snowed hard last night and I waited up all night to see that my son finallly made it home safely from work at 4AM.

DH did take me and DD out to dinner tonite for a late VD's dinner. It was a good and I controlled myself and stayed in my calorie limit for the day. So, not a bad VD afterall.

My V-day was blah. I didn't go in to work because of the nor'easter (hehe:devil:) Stayed home. BF didn't write to me (after sending him a card), didn't send me a card, nothing. All I wanted was a "Happy v-day!" but nothing. So I was pissy the entire day. I tried to be like you guys - not caring about v-day but I really do care. So anyway, I got a card from him at around midnight so I was appeased. :p :D

I'm almost reluctant to say I had a good V-day, when so many of you seem unhappy about yours....

But I did! I always do. Mainly because I always speak up & tell Hubby exactly what I want; that way there's no disappointment, no surprises, & no Hubby feeling like crap because he "can't read my mind." I don't usually care for the traditional red roses - I like pink roses! -but my favorite flower is pink carnations. But this year, he felt like going with "the classic" ... A dozen roses & a beautiful card = lucky hubby. ;)

I feel the same way. I told DH in advance that I wasn't buying him a gift and he wasn't going to buy me a gift. No need for flowers or any other trinkets either. We were snowed in anyway but I did mean to go to Trader Joe's and buy a dessert. That didn't happen but we survived :)

We never do anything for VD, so it was no different than any other day. But today I got a package from my son (who lives in Oregon). It was actually the gift he got me for Christmas but never mailed. He was hoping it would arrive in time for VD, but it was two days late. That's OK. :-)

He sent me some Stumptown coffee beans (locally roasted in Portland in antique coffee roasters--so yummy), some chocolate (which I can't eat and put away for later--much later), and some port (which I also can't drink now, so I'm saving it). It made my day to get the package.
