    Well, I'm disappointed in you all, chaps!

    I expected to check in here today and find a thread, full of hearts, flowers, sweetness and love.

    I guess the fact that there isn't one must mean that you're all busy, treating your lovely ladies to a special, home-cooked feast, whilst pouring her a glass of pink champagne and presenting her with a gift bag, full of chocolates, perfume, jewellery, a dozen red roses and some beautiful underwear.

    Am I right? Or (as I suspect) are you in the "Valentine's Day is a load of commercial crap" camp?

    It IS a load of commercial crap. But, I've never yet met a woman, who'd say no to a bit of special treatment, whatever the date!

    HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, EVERYONE!

    Big kiss from me x

    P.S. If any of you feel the need to shower ME with gifts, you know where I am!! :y5: :tongue:

    P.P.S. Niko, if you're reading this, I'm waiting!!!

    I treat my girlfriend all the time, but won't do it on a day that is enforced upon me. Forced romance isn't at all romantic, the spontaneity of expressing you r feelings in whatever way you feel is romantic, buying a card that say's I love you on valentines day isn't. If a man wants to be romantic make a card himself on a random day nowhere near Valentines and she will love it (My missus does).

    It's all about surprising your lady with romance for me, not doing it because the calender says you should...
    liam,

    As I said to [MENTION=3786]Roscono3[/MENTION] earlier it's the one day a year where I can buy my wife flowers without he asking me why.

    Also as I work away a lot it's sometimes nice to cheer her up. I try to send her something nice (flowers, wine, chocolates) every now and again.

    I did use my imagination and send a pic of her wedding bouquet and asked them to copy it.

    I know I'm a soppy hit really but she does let me go to a lot of spurs games :)

    It is a load of commercialized crap. But as long as it increases my chances of getting laid, I will continue to observe it.

    Did something absolutely fooking stupid this weekend, so my would be valentine is a little unhappy with me today. I also had class from 8-8 today, so i couldn't really do anything to remedy the situation. I'll try tomorrow.



    P.S. I didn't cheat on anybody, i'm not that scummy.

    Valentine's day=Suckers spending more money on things you could get cheaper any other day.

    Tell your loved ones or your other half how much you care through the year, gifts are meant to come from the heart not a fake corporate made day.

    That may be so [MENTION=3255]Javi[/MENTION] but as I bought my misses a card, flowers and a few other things I get "thank you" sex and a "special" reward ;)

    It may be a corporate day but your misses will still appreciate it if you spoil her.

    Oh she would probably be pissed if you don't get her anything. She might not show it or say anything but seeing all her friends getting spoiled and her not is a sure way to masterbationville ;)

    Suck it up guys it's one day. You can still spoil them on other days as well, I'm sure she won't mind.

    For those complaining about price rises, buy early not two days before, also some websites like Ann Summers (if she is into things from there) actually have a 20% off sale for 3 days before the 14th with half price express delivery.

    I know you travel amigo so that thank you sex comes in handy lol. My main point is you could spoil your other half anytime if the year and some people sadly only do so on valentines day as if it were mandatory, as much as women like gifts and expect it on that day they they LOVE surprises. Not bashing on anyone getting things on this day but you could choose to do it any other day:). Also while sex is a great hey we like other gifts as well, men or the male figure in any relationship lol should not be the only ones forking over gifts.

    I made the ulitmate sacrifce for Valentine's day, Mrs Dorset is on half term holidays (no, I am not a peedo - she is a teacher not a pupil), so I took her to Weston-Super-Mare for fish and chips at Papa's - brilliant place, signed pictures of Jimmy Greaves, David Ginola and Glen Hoddle on the wall, £9.95 for a lunchtime special of cod and chips, coffee and a roll and butter - I'm SO classy eh?

    Then, without considering my own health and sanity - I took her to the big smoke (Taunton) to buy some shoes and other women's stuff. I did not wait for her in the pub for the many, many, many hours it took to select the shoes, no, I traipsed around with her saying things like 'they look nice Mrs Dorset' to the 70% off Debenhams shoes, and 'I don't think they really suit you' to the full priced Ecco shoes.

    Cooked Chicken Carbonara - That went tits up. She beat me at a game of monopoly. I fell asleep watching My Bloody Valentine with her and when I woke up I spilt my Fosters on the floor.

    Fcuk Valentines.
