Single ladies only, how do you feel about Valentine's Day?

It's nothing but a marketing scheme by Hallmark.

I dislike Valentine's Day partly because of how overly-commercialized it's become...and partly because my baby ferret died on Valentine's Day in 2006. So...not a good anniversary. Combine that with the obscene amounts of money spent "because it's Valentine's Day," and I hate the day. I am a firm believer that you don't need a particular day of the year to celebrate love with grand, over-priced gestures, that it should be celebrated throughout the year with smaller gestures. If I'm going out to dinner with someone, I'd rather not spend what's supposed to be a romantic night crammed into an over-packed restaurant with a thousand other people, choosing from a menu of over-priced, but cheap-to-make options.

Just because he spends money on me on one particular day doesn't mean he loves me.

I never celebrated Valentines Day when I wasn't single (except one time, when my ex-husband got me injured on February 13, and took me out to make it up to me). I hate the advertising suggesting that you're not really in love if you don't shower her with diamonds (what if she doesn't like diamonds?) or provide him with the wildest sex of the year (why not have the wildest sex of the year because it's Thursday? Or better yet, try to make your sex life as satisfying as possible every day of the year).

I also hate the bitter mopey-ness that comes with the day. I have friends who have never been in a serious relationship moaning about the day, and friends that are in good relationships moaning about the day (like my best friend: how are you supposed to be romantic with a wired-up toddler when you're 6 months pregnant with the second child, and no one is available to babysit because everyone else wants to be with their sweetie, or is busy drinking their loneliness away). It just seems to be a day for everyone to be insecure and to be sure that everyone else is happier than they are.

I'm mostly indifferent, but would be overjoyed if I got flowers or something.

I'm always lonely around that day. I like the chocolate, but that's it.

I enjoy celebrating it, but it's not a big deal to me. I don't need a significant other to celebrate it - I show my other loved ones some extra love. :]

Ya, Valentine's Day does kind of suck because they do over advertise it. Starting in January they already have stuff out for it! It is kind of sad of us singles

I could take it or leave it. It's no big deal.

It's kind of overrated, yes, it's very commercial, yes. It doesn't bother me that bad because of the whole single thing, though. I usually celebrate it with some friends or family members anyway.

I hate being single, and therefore hate being single on valentine's day. Sucks. Just rubs it in that I'm alone

This women couldn't have said it better. Why does single have to equal unhappy?

Also a really cool effort in the vein of Occupy, it is time to Occupy Valentines day to fight back against "couple-ism". Occupy Valentines Day

I just wish I liked chocolate. There is nothing in this holiday for me...

Whenever I was single, I was indifferent to it. When I'm dating someone, I honestly do love it. Presents, chocolate and flowers, yay!

Just another of the 365 (sometimes 366) days in the year. Even when I wasn't single, it wasn't much of a 'holiday'.

When I'm single, and even when I'm with someone who doesn't celebrate, it's depressing!

Valentine's Day more like cheap chocolate day eve.

I'm not single so I didn't answer on the poll, but when I was I still loved the day. Just knowing how it originated and regardless of my status, I could still feel like it was a wonderful day. I think it is too commercialized, even as someone who will have a valentine this next year, and I'd much rather have a nice home-cooked dinner and just spend the day with the person I love as opposed to getting gifts that are paid for, but I still enjoy it.

I love it. Any excuse to give candy to people or receive candy is a good holiday to me.

It's taken me forever to get there, but indifference is all I feel. Funny, but I've actually had someone to do things with who's just a friend over the last few years. Maybe that's part of it, or maybe I've stopped letting one insignificant day determine my feelings.

I enjoyed it being single because I would make a deliberate effort to seduce myself and get some good quality alone time. It can be amazing, let me tell you!

Never liked the idea of having one day a year when you decide to show love
