    I hate Singles Awareness Day

    This holiday is such a joke. All it does is mock those who don't have a significant other. I'm sure that I would feel differently if I had one, but since I don't, I hate February 14.

    People who are married think it's a joke of a "holiday" too.

    Re: I hate Singles Awareness Day

    never really understood why people hate Val-day so much when they are single. I always thought it was the easiest day to pick up a lady. Just wait for her to start complaining about valentines day and then get her flowers or something nice and say something along the lines of, you sounded like you needed something to make your day better, so I thought i would surprise you with some flowers.

    Even if you don't do anything, I don't think it is that big of a deal.

    Re: I hate Singles Awareness Day

    Do they make cards for "Singles Awareness Day"?
    If so who would send it?


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Probably their mothers since they're the only woman that will ever love them.

    Re: I hate Singles Awareness Day

    I tried getting my girlfriend something for Valentine's Day once. She punched me. "It's nothing but getting people to show their love for each other one day a year."

    Once I gave her Russell Stover chocolates on February 15th after getting it 50% off. She loved me for it.

    I DO NOT understand women.

    I usually do somethin for her on val-day, She usually does something for me on St. Patty's day. It isn't anything big though.

    Re: I hate Singles Awareness Day

    I've always been convinced Valentine's Day is just one of those fraudulent holidays created by the card companies simply because card sales as well as sales of certain novelties go down the crapper after Christmas, so what better way to make some coin in a dry period than to blackball men into spending hundreds of dollars on their "Valentine", and if they don't then somehow they are a horrible husband/boyfriend/SO.

    Want proof that Valentine's Day is a fraudulent holiday?

    Saint Valentine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Okay, Christmas has very little to do with Santa Claus and Easter has nothing to do with the Easter Bunny, but at least people still understand the original reason for celebrating those holidays. Where Valentine's Day comes from, basing it on Saint Valentine, who freaking knows?

    As far as what I did for my wife and child, I was not allowed to buy flowers this year, and my wife does not allow me to spend a whole lot of money on her. What I did end up doing was buying a "buy one, get one free" stuffed animal special at a local Hallmark store. My wife got a stuffed Siberian husky, my daughter got a stuffed golden retriever. Probably the biggest Valentine's Day win I've ever had, and I spent less than $20.

    Sounds sappy, but if you show them affection outside of a day reserved typically for it, it means more. It makes perfect sense. V-Day is a way for Russell Stover and Hallmark to get rich.

    You don't have to understand women to know that buying chocolate for her is about the biggest win ever. And the fact you got it at half off shows her you're good with money - you're appealing to her "need for security." Well played.
