I am. I never really got into the hearts and flowers. Feb 14th means gangsters and Chicago. Every year I watch either the documentary or the film of The st Valentine's Day Massacre.I usually don't have a steady and now i think even if I did I would keep up this tradition. how do you spend St Valentine's Day? are you ready?

One has nothing to do with the other.. other than the fact that the massacre happened on Feb 14th that year and the media grabbed that for their shock effect. I dont get the whole thing of V-day...well I do, I just think it is a waste. DO we really need a day in the year to say I Love YOu to those we love? Can't we do that every day? I think it'd be so much more nicer if typical V=day actions were done at least once a week, in stead of once a year. Now if it were a paid day off holiday, I'm all for it!

I never was into flowers as gifts , nor candy unless you count trick or treating when I was little so Feb 14th Never meant anything romantic. But a great mob hit? That is something I can celebrate! I'll know I have found the " One" when he can agree with me that when he hears Feb 14th he thinks Chicago not the florist.

Flowers to me are a apology for something I will never know you did. It is a lazy and non-imaginative way to Try to express love.

Valentines day isn't that big a deal to me as far as the candy, hearts and flowers go..I care more about the fact my husband is a good guy the rest of the year. One day of spending money on things I neither want or need because the marketing pressures him into it isn't a turn on for me, if he isn't located on a job somewhere we might go to dinner. I always bake big heart cookies for all my neices and nephews and send them along with those little silly valentines that the kids give each other at school. So yeah, I'm ready.

if my lover was in the same town as I . I wouldn't want flowers or candy either. my dream is to have pizza , watch St Valentine's day Masscre, and then a good movie while we have cupcakes.I think it is sad that many men feel forced to get flowers or candy every Feb14th.

agreed it's like a guy has to "prove" his love with over priced goodies.Like working to take care of his family, being a great dad, and showing up everyday to deal with the daily stuff life hands out, while maintaining a sense of humor isn't proof enough! I'll take a great guy year round opposed to one that treats valentines day like a get out of jail free card any day.

Every valentine day me and my wife get really drunk and eat chocolates all day. No joke. We have a, some would say a crazy tradition, but it makes it a very interesting and exciting relationship. Later in the evening we take a cab to a happening club and party the night away. After that we will go to a theatre to catch a movie. And that is our valentines day.

My husband and I, since we were dating, have had rather weird schedules (well up until the end of 2008). As a result, we were apart for quite a bit of our relationship. Our first Valentine's Day apart he sent me a bouquet of flowers. From that year forward, we somehow always managed to be together on Valentine's Day, by coinsedence, even the year we missed our first anniversary. LOL So we celebrate with a nice afternoon at home and a nice dinner (either in or out, this year we stayed in because we didn't have a lot of money in Feb) just to celebrate the day we always managed to be together. This year it fell on a Sunday, so we stayed in and enjoyed the Croatian and Serbian program on our favourite radio station.

This year was a happy and busy Valentine's Day. I went to the movies and I received many nice emails. I Finally got to see St valentine's Day Massacre late , late that night,.
