I bought my kitty a valentines day present of dried salmon treats and loved them!
My bunny got a wooden chewy toy.
My bunny hated the toy.

Well, on Valentine's one year my grandmother died from a misdiagnosed blood infection. On that morning she said her goodbye to me, and fell asleep, and never woke up. Mid afternoon, she passed, and the rest of Valentines was spent comforting the majority of my family, and awkwardly watching my aunts and uncles one up each other for attention over it. That night I get a call from the people we hired as petsitters. My pet rats both died. Not a good day.

Another year I got a fake anonymous Valentine's rose. I got excited, and then discovered it was two guy friends of mine who thought I could not get a date and took pity on me. Awkward.

So there's two stories for you. Just know Valentines day is just a holiday, and sometimes we have bad days. Take it for what it is, and stay positive. Hopefully it helped you feel a little better.

My college boyfriend didn't "believe in" Valentine's Day so he didn't get me anything.  One of my girlfriends got engaged that year (on V-Day), and I was viewing pictures of her ring on Facebook.  He leaned in and scoffed and said, "I'm never going to get you a ring.  I think it's selfish and environmentally unfriendly."

Don't feel bad for me. It made me appreciate the normal valentine's day. This year I finally had a good one smile

So it's ok. Why was your valentine's not good?

I was served with divorce papers on Valentine's Day.  LMAO.  No matter what else you can say about her, she had a sense of humor.  Actually she was a great girl, we just got married way to young.

Long time ago...

Jesus.

You know, I can love someone every day and appreciate a holiday.
I mean, for people that against the premise, Hallmark and every other reason, don't celebrate ANY holiday then.

This past Christmas I hardly had any money. I had to move on Christmas Eve.
Still had a lovely holiday.

I hope you're with someone really nice now.

I didn't have anyone to give a Valentine's Day card to but I gave one to my parents:)

It made me feel good and I enjoyed my holiday.

BAD BAD DATE. Well, great date, drunk person....
I should only go out w him when he's sober. I'm gonna wait it out and see if he apologises profusely (realizes how bad he blew it, and what he has to lose), and if he doesn't, back to the drawing board hmm Sucks cuz he seemed great before.

The man I'm dating now surprised me with two dozen red roses yesterday.

Perhaps being with someone who didn't celebrate and made me feel that I didn't deserve such things made me appreciate the gesture so much more.  I was shocked.

Wow that's shitty I'm sorry to hear that. He better apologize. I never get what makes people think being sloppy drunk is impressive to people.

I got married to the asshole on Valentine's Day of 2008.  He then decided he'd rather fuck men, and steal from me, and lie constantly.

That can happen with any asshole wherever you meet him.

One Cinco De Mayo I picked up a guy I was seeing, he was drunk and it instantly turned me off.
Found out he was chatting it up and drinking with some woman for a couple hours before I arrived.

I obviously dumped him.

tongue ^ That's what I did. I bought my mom a card and a desk planter thing of baby roses in different colors and put them beside her keyboard in the office-- And made a big stink of "OH MY GOD, MOM, LOOK WHAT THE CATS DID TO YOUR OFFICE!"smile She ran in swearing thinking they'd pooped on the floor or something and then she saw the Valentine's flowers, hahaha.

I've never had an SO on V day (not the kind of girl guys date), so I've thusly never really celebrated, but I still appreciate the holiday!

I told my wife one year, that I would take her to see the sunrise on South Padre Island. So, off we went! What she didn't think about, (I did, but wasn't going to say anything...) was that Valentines day is......IN FEBRUARY! Once we got to the beach, it was just over 50 degrees, and cloudy/foggy. So, what's so bad about that you ask??

Hehe, I also forgot to tell her that it was really a business trip, and that my boss would be driving us down there. He needed an extra hand to pick up a truck part in the little town of Harlingen! big_smile 24 hours straight driving from Ft. Worth Texas, to South Padre Island and back again, with a 30 minute stay in Harlingen. She did get to dip her toes in the surf, and watch the sunrise. After all, the truck store didn't open until 9:00am.

You live and learn.

I'm sorry.
Better than being married to a guy like that, right?
Getting to know someone is the best way to go.

People reveal themselves.
It's all just a matter of time.

People don't change at heart, only behaviors do.

This year was by far the worst. My husband and I have been on shaky ground for the last few weeks. I figured we were doing a little better and like every year, something would arrive for me at work. I waited all day...nothing. I was really hurt. I had to face it...this was a sign things are over.

I stayed at work talking to my co-workers who were shocked that I had not received a single thing. I got home later than usual, and walked inside my house to a drunk husband who was upset that I got home late. I cried and told him I got the hint, our marriage is over.

So he blows up and asks "What about the roses I sent to you?"

Long story short he had to dispute the transaction with the company he bought the roses from because they were never delivered to my job. What an insane Valentine's!

Did you really believe your entire marriage was in doubt because of a delivery screw-up?

Things had gotten really bad up to that point, and he is the type of guy that goes all out. Him not doing a single thing was like him giving up on us.
