    I think it's a time for lovers to celebrate each other.

    I'm sorry if ti makes anyone feel bad or lonely, but I don't think that's what it was meant for. I understand it brings out insecurities in insecure people, and I hope one day, they look in the mirror and love themsleves. For only when you love yourself, will you have a lover.

    I used to be really bitter about it, and got over it and learned to take the time to do something special for myself those years I had no lover to share the day with.

    there's definatly someone i want to be my valentine this year, it would be like a dream come true or something to have a valentine for the 1st time with this guy i know from my school.....he likes me alot too but for some reason nothing has really happened yet so i dont think we'll end up together for the lovers holiday :(

    i don't need a day to know how my boyfriend feels about me. i doubt we will do anything on the 14th, if i even see him.

    I don't like Valentine's day personally. I do like what it celebrates; love, but it just kind of goes against my nature. What I love about love is sponteneity - the moment. The sponteniety of a moment is a truly great place to be - where both of you know it and kind of go with it and then like from a dream you wake up next to each other the next day feeling great both thinking wow, what a great day, thank you. To me that's love in rythm with nature.

    Now Valentines Day to me is kind of the anti-moment. It's a day on the calender. Lovers can't just magical make the moment on that day - make it one of those days you'll always remember. They can be thoughtful for sure - but making it 'the day', the 'moment' just seems kind of forced to me.

    wow that really described it well. this will actually b the first year i've had anyone on valentines, so i've been looking forward to it, but i realize exactly what you're saying. just a day meant for lovers doesn't really make it as speacial as the moments together when things just fall into place without being planned. those are the moments that really make your relationship special. i can understand why all of you dont like valentines so much cuz i've been right there with you guys all these years...but i never got myself down and depressed. it was just like another day, only extra chocolates and what not from other friends, or maybe a flower from an admirer, but nothing as special as what i ever wished for. i hope this valentine's won't be depressing for anyone and we can all celebrate the meaning of the day, which is to celebrate love. not really with a special someone, but with anyone. just let people close to you know you care for them and love them. that's what we really should do instead putting the main focus on relationships with our lovers.

    I hate how commercialized it is... it's a great idea to set aside a special day for your SO, but suddenly it's all about cards, candy, balloons, flowers, jewelry and other gifts. And primarily for the female in a m/f relationship.... guys get to spend the day with their gal and somehow that's considered sufficient (not saying all couples are like this, just the vday stereotype)

    That said, my mom usually buys me choclate from this really good chocolatier, very high quality, and I like that! But for her, it's more an excuse to do something nice, than a requirement. And I'm gonna be getting her some flowers, I think, so it'll be even.

    So maybe each couple should set aside their own day to appreciate one another, rather than have a(n) (inter?)national day to do that. It's a lot more special and individualized that way!


    oh, and for this Vday, since it happens to be during spring break from school, a gal pal and I are having a dinner party for some of our friends, because we love cooking way too much for univ students.
