Does Valentine's Day mean anything to you?

I am curious if the day means anything to people who are both single or not. Some people just flat out do not celebrate.

I enjoy Valentine's Day but do not really celebrate.

We always exchange gifts and cards. And we always try to do something special for eachother. Our first Valentines Day together was also the night he proposed to me. But we had also been knowing each other for like 20 years and had a history together before we started dating lol, so its not like it was a rushed thing for us. But I love being able remember the day we got engaged as the day devoted to lovers.

We're long distance, but yes it does. It's a lot of fun, but most of our time is anyways.

Yea, it means business is booming at the chocolate shop where I work.

It's a pretty meaningless holiday for me no matter what my relationship status may be. I appreciate some of the sales and promotions that benefit me (like the ones here on EF) but most of the things that get pushed for Valentine's Day don't appeal to me at all.

I enjoy that there's chocolate everywhere, but that's about it. I don't care for celebrating it, because usually everything we can do to celebrate it is super crowded by other people going out.

Married an love any excuse for chocolate and sex!

It's not that it means anything to me, but my partner enjoys it.

I enjoy holidays. I don't expect some big expensive gift on v-day but dinner is nice, maybe a small box of candy since I'm trying to be good. I enjoy having someone to send it with.

Normally it means nothing but being away from my hubby is bringing a sprinkle of meaning. Miss him so much. Dear March, please get here soon

It doesn't mean anything to me, but I'm single. I doubt it would mean much even if I had a partner, but I wouldn't down it or decline if a partner was into it and enjoyed giving on the day. Also wouldn't worry me if a partner didn't acknowledge the day either.

Valentine's Day does mean a lot because it's an opportunity to do something truly out of the ordinary for your lover. Sometimes it's easy to fall into ruts and do the same thing every weekend after a while. Valentine's Day helps combat feelings of underappreciation and monotony.

Valentine's Day used to mean a lot to me - but not so much anymore. For one thing, we've been married 32 years and I have probably one of the most thoughtful husbands in the world. He will oftentimes go to the store for something and bring me home a treat - whether it be something like cherry tomatoes cause he knows I love them and they're not cheap and he knows I don't usually buy down and just buy them for me - or a chocolate bar - or some pretty paper and a pen - or a flower - or a favorite soda or - on and on the list goes.

He also frequently cooks (he enjoys cooking) - he rarely complains if I'm behind on the laundry or something but instead pitches in and helps out. For years he lived with me as I struggled with clinical depression that left me pretty much non-functional or low-function.

With a guy like that who treats me like this all year long - it's pretty hard to get excited about getting something one day a year. Know what I mean?

He did go out last night to get us some bread and stuff and brought me home this nice big jar of citrus salad cause I'd mentioned in the store the other day, "If you want to get me a Valentine's Day gift - get me something like that which is healthy".

A lot of guys could learn from the life my man lives...I'm truly blessed.

And no - all of his brothers are married and are not available. My son on the other hand....

Most of the years I'm in for the candy. Gotta love chocolate! But this year I got a package for my owner and I can't wait for her to open it tonight.

We try to go out to eat either the weekend before or after if it falls during the week like it did today. We show each other our love though frequently.

No I try to avoid it like the plague way too much expectation. I prefer to show my love and appreciation any other day then just when the calendar says so.

I'm exasperated with immature twits who scream about how much they hate it and harsh everyone else's mellow on that day just because they're childish and unhappy with life in general. I kinda wish they'd be adults about it (because all of them are - chronologically - adults) and either just ignore it or accept it and carry on.

Myself, I see it as a sort of "mushy Christmas" because it's a gifting holiday. And the colors and designs remind me of my childhood in Kansas City: with post-Christmas greyness and cold and all, the pop of colors were warm and fun to see, and the parties we had at school got us out of math lessons for the afternoon.

It doesn't mean much to me other than half-price candy on the days after. It doesn't bother me, but it's just not our gig.

It gives us an excuse to do something totally cute and goofy. We're usually like that anyway, but it's nice to have a day to make it special.

Valentine's Day gets a lot of hate, but I actually like it. It's cute. It's only "commercialized" if you make it so.

It's okay. I guess. I've never once celebrated it but my love this year wanted to, so I was like alright. xD we just hung out and spent time together though, fairly average.

It's cute. Not really my thing. I've never had a really amazing VDay though, so my mind might change one day.

We celebrate it but its really something that should be celebrated OFTEN...not just one day a year!

I love Valentine's Day.

Valentine's day is fun but there's a bit more to it than just the expected acts of the day for us.

It's no big deal for us, but I LOVE the discount chocolate after!

Doesn't mean crap to me

For the second year in a row, I forgot that just because it doesn't mean anything to me...that it doesn't mean anything to her...

Charlie Brown had it right...holidays have become so commercialized. I may not have paid an exhorbitant amount of $$$ for cut flowers on 2/14, but I made homemade cards for her.

P.S. I spend a LOT more on cut flowers two days later to try and make up for it...
