Your profile states that you are British.

I'm sorry but British people just never say "freakin", ever.

Either your profile is incorrect or there is something else wrong.

I did that once in Romania - with a Latin American woman who was a work colleague. We were both working late out there.

Upon returning to our hotel after work, I asked the hotel receptionist to book us a table at a nearby restaurant.

"Ah, a romantic meal with your wife on Valentine's Day"replied the man behind reception.

"She's not my wife", I replied.

"Even better!" was his response.

Gee you made me spill my hot breakfast coffee Burned my obvious

Re: What do guys want... Valentines Day

I'm making my husband brownies for valentines day, mainly because anything I buy him will be what Jim Jeffries said. So brownies.

I was going to say Valentines presents are meh.


But after seeing what that comic got for their 18th birthday, I'm rather jealous.




So to my enigmatic valentine out there: A nice big red firetruck would be sweet---with all the bells and whistles!

You forgot the hose

Erm.... I use it online instead of the other f word that I'm more prone to using. Please feel free to substitute the two words in your head.

One has to be professional about such matters, especially when one can swear quite proficiently in a few languages. One is...after all...a lady!

We might be baking on Valentine's Day some cyber cakes and then we will be flying high to the sky. As romantic as it can get

Being a lady is overrated. Feel free to swear, after all you are in the right place for that.

Other than the obvious, are guys even interested in getting something on Valentines Day?

I get my OH special chocolate (sugar addict) and littles gifts when I see something he might like.

Have I been sucked into this Hallmark Holiday? Or should I do something?

Full Disclosure: I've been told I'm getting breakfast in bed.
I would be happy with this

Re: What do guys want... Valentines Day

I tried to encourage my husband to want a fancy watch for our anniversary he just wasn't into it. I ended up getting him a significantly cheaper one and told him I'd add significantly cheaper ones to his watch collection (currently at a whooping 2) regularly instead. He doesn't understand why anyone would need more than 1 watch. Maybe instead of brownies ill get him a Swatch.

In the end, why don't you go for the obvious if that's what he wants ? I don't understand the need to find an alternative that might be less pleasant.

I agree with your husband. One watch is enough

I've got my OH an ultrasonic cleaner to clean his eyeglasses.
I know I know, how unromantic.

It's much wiser to have a single watch from a traditional brand than a collection of crap ones.

Why would you want more then one watch? You can only wear one at a time so as long as it is a reliable watch that tells the time you only need one! Otherwise it is just a oiece of jewellery that is a waste of money

Yes. I agree. Which is what I tried to tell my husband. He wasn't interested in a trafional or quailty watch. Hence the collection of crappy watches.

Watches are jewellery!

See above. But actually having more than one watch is quite nice. If you wear a casual watch with professional attire then you look like a noodle, and vise versa, but if you're happy with your one rolex then I salute you sir!

I'm quite certain, he appreciates your vocal discontent about him on an open forum.

Vocal discontent? ha! yes, I'm so disappointed in my life and the man I've chosen to spend it with. Oh how I wish he'd want a rolex, my life is so hard, my husband is such a pill.
