I like the idea of celebrating love - that's cute and I get it if people want to take the opportunity to make their partner feel loved, and be a bit cute with each other. I just don't like that it's gotten to the point where people are feeling pressured to waste tonnes of money on stupid crap.
Ladies - don't buy into the bullshit that not getting flowers on vday means he doesn't love you. How he treats you on a daily basis is the proof you need of his love and devotion.
Men - respect yourselves. Don't fall into the trap of thinking you need to constantly prove your love by showering your partner with gifts and fancy dates. If treating her with respect and showing her love through your daily actions and behaviours isn't enough for her, she's not the kind of woman you need in your life.
- Yes, I make a really big deal about it and would be super upset if my partner didn't
- Yeah, I think it's a fun excuse to be romantic
- Eh.. I don't mind it but don't care much about it
- I think it's stupid
- I hate it passionately

It's just another day for me. I don't celebrate it, but today I got myself Valentine themed cake and chocolate because I wanted to, not because it's Valentine's Day. They say it's a day to boost commerce, you can say I did help with commerce here, lol. Even if I was in a relationship or married, it would be just another day for me, I don't care about this day whatsoever. I'll never pressure anyone to take me on a date, and buy me a bouquet of flowers, sounds silly, lol.

The holiday's roots are in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15. Pope Gelasius Irecast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine's Day.
Means nothing to me.
