Why someone should summarize the love in one day only ?
Because it's cheaper than doing it for 365 days?

Just to totally spoil the heartwarming sentiment of the original post, let me say that V-day is a holiday created by women and for women to torture men everywhere.

I gave it some (sweet) thought and after long pondering I arrived at the answer:

Me buys+ She loves= Happy ending

Re: Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

Sorry but Im a new age, metrosexual, revolutionary man. I expect to be treated nice and showered with gifts and attention on the Valentines.

This manipulation of men has to stop now!

Re: Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

Ok, lets be serious. I think for the Valentine's Im going to buy some expensive chocolates, some fine wine and couples of bottles of Tequila and cook a nice meal, pack it all in a picnic basket and go to some secluded spot by the lake (would be brilliant if it would be clear starry night) with some blankets or thorws to keep us warm, with my mates and share some jokes and laughter.

We're also gonna play this game, whoever's girlfriend or wife rings, he'd have to cancel the call and take a Tequila shot. The one who passes out first will be the most loved among us.

wrong - created by florists and chocolate manufacturers.
I think women would never create a day they'd feel nothing but disappointment over their guy's unability to get them something nice


well nothing hubby could do would top his wedding proposal back in 2009 so we just skip that date and buy each other roses whenever we feel like.

And I got married on Valentine's Day. But you have also touched on something here when you say that you buy each other roses ... I don't think this day is just for the women and I always treat my husband

Re: Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

Got my wife a bracelet for Valentine's made of silver (one of them pandora numbers). Had a look at it today and it's already got marks of tarnish.

Hope they aren't too much trouble when I change it tomorrow. I only bought it on Monday!

Dang! Was just swooning at a TV ad on one of those! Have you been wearing it or something in advance of giving it to her as part of your double act with Mr LiB "no homo"!?

Back to the real topic - a guy who cooks me a really nice meal AND cleans the kitchen afterwards without ever asking for help. That would be Valentines!!

Variations on that - a guy who takes the day off secretly to clean the house from top to bottom, before cooking dinner, while the wife is at work all day. And arranges a babysitter for the kids (if applicable) would be a HERO
Is there a typo?? shouldn't it be "girl" instead of "guy"

Na it was wrapped up in a box. Which I had hidden in my man bag (it's ted baker so really no homo k?) which my wife decided to look inside today and found said box and wouldn't talk to me unless I let her open it.

The bracelet is too big for my wife so I have to change it anyway. I just hope they don't give me hassle about the black mark I can't imagine it being anything other than tarnish

I will stop worrying now
