Yesterday I asked my boyfriend what he wants to do for valentines day, and he said he is probably going to pick up the shift at work. I told him that that really stinks because I wanted to spend it together and he blew me off. This will be our third Valentines Day. The last two we did romantic things and had a great time. We aren't tight for money, and he doesn't make more working since it is Valentines day then a normal day. We have been really stressed/busy lately with classes (were in college) and I was really looking forward to this. What do I do? Am I missing something?
-btw, before someone says it, he is not going to surprise me. he hates that kind of thing. also, I have told him how i feel and asked him why already. he just blew it off. he isn't big on any holidays really, but he knows i am-

So, he isn't big on holidays, but did something for you the last 2 years. I say you owe it to him this year to just let it be. Sounds fair to me. Valentines day is not just for women, they seem to forget that. Why not do what he wants this year, which is nothing. Then you guys can do something next year.0

I feel ya. This is my third year with my boyfriend as well, we have yet to spend a Valentine's together (for very valid reasons the past two) but this year he is working also. In his defence, he tried to get the day off but they had someone quit so he can't.
The past two years, we "celebrated" on different days but he barely did anything/got me anything.
I honestly just think guys don't see the sentimental importance of holidays like girls do. /: Especially in long term relationships since we already know they love us or whatever, they don't think one day is a big deal. I don't know. Hang in there!1
