i dont like the common stupid things like buyin presents for valentines day or for christmas or for bairam...im against it i just like to buy sth that is both useful and and beautiful that can make her/him happy ...of course not like the flowers that can fade in hours....sth permanent...

to sum up i dont like ummm formalities any of them..even my birthday just thank friends not to hurt them hehe....

During Valentine's Day, i receive lots of chocolates, white and red roses, greeting cards (actually it is starting now) from all my friends. But i specially buy something for my parents and i treat them for a dinner the night before 14 February and this date is for me

Quoting Capoeira:

What?!?!?!?!?!
Sorry ladies...I love Valentine's Day!

Still love the day and yes..I love roses and chocolates and well....just a wonderful day to express love.

But, then I'm big on Christmas and Thanksgiving too....so I guess i'm just a holiday fanatic!!!!

Any reason to eat...and something sweet too!!! IT'S ALL GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But in my family we aren't so traditional...we call aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, mom etc. and send valentine's to them too! So it's a family love day...not just the romantic one.



Capo we have the same conviction about all occasions not only valentine's day. I dont get tired or bored when i buy gifts for everybody specially choossing novelty items. I send fresh flowers to all my friends.

But why? Isn't Valentines Day supposed to be about the one you love? Offfff we dont do this in the UK - I dont really understand why you would buy friends and parents things on Valentines Day! Don't parents already have Fathers and Mothers Day?

Hehe whatever, I hope you have a good one. It justs seems really strange to me :-S

I simlpy do not understand why there should be a certain day to celebrate love...with cards, red roses, red hearts, red...everything (I guess I am also a scrooge )

In Romania we used to celebrate the "Martisor" on the 1st of March, when girls were given little, symbolic things (in shape of clover, snowdrop, chimney-sweeper) tied with white and red strings to symboize the coming of spring and love. Girls used to wear the white and red string tied up onto thier wrists as a token of love.

When I love someone I don't need that "one special day" to show him how much I love him, I'd try to make every day Valentine's day

I've seen couples on Valentine's day in restaurants, staring at the wall, staring at their glasses as if there is something very interesting to be found there, staring at anything and anyone except eachother, trying to avoid to have to look eachother in the eyes and not knowing what to say to eachother.. That's a downright horror image to me

İ agree presents,cards,..ect making that day a boring one and same as other days we celebrate them.
Roses i welcome them anytime,as long as they delivering a message to me

And i agree too,i don't have to have a special day to show my love,but
İ would like to have a day,it can be all about love,our love,spend it together,share it really together,flying,dancing,celebrating our love.
A day where you can find other couple beside you maybe sharing same looks together,where you can smell love in the air

Not some boring restaurants stuff. offff

Ps:But cards,and presents are importants in long distance relationships,gives the meaning of sharing,i guess.

yeh, i agree too. why should you be obliged to show your love on this one day? love should be shown all year round, not just on one day.
