Okay, so we all know that Valentines Day is fast approaching. Most good restaurants are full are full of reservation, higher demands for stuff toys and flowers, etc. What are your plans with your special someone? Or if your single, how would you celebrate it this year? :))

I planned my Valentine's Day this year a bit differently. Since I already know that the restaurants, cinemas and other good places will be full that day, I have decided to spend some time with children in a low-income community to teach them on Valentine's Day. It is actually hitting two birds with one stone. My groupmates need to do microteaching for our MA class. Although we can choose the date when we will do the microteaching, we've chosen Valentine's Day instead. That way, we can also show our love to other people. There are many forms of love, but the romantic type of love is the one given emphasis on during Valentine's Day. I want to show others that you can show love to other people too during this day. My baby and I will have our date over the weekend. That way, it won't be as crowded. I want things to be more intimate rather than commercial.

Oh the romance of Valentine's Day. My husband and I will spend the evening with our three children. I know this doesn't sound very romantic, but we have a very strong sense of family, and love is what this day is all about.

@eunique317: That's actually a good way on celebrating Valentines Day. You're right, it's like hitting two birds with one stone. Valentines doesnt really mean celebrating it and sharing the love with only the most important person/people in your life. It's a good thing that you also get to share your blessings to other people and be able to make them smile on that day. I hope that you have a good day with those people, and have a fun date with your baby :)) *btw, I somehow learned something from your post, thanks for posting! :) @hannah75: Celebrating Valentine's Day doesn't really need spending money, going out, etc. I think celebrating with your family is one of the simplest yet most meaningful one. Just spending quality time with your loved ones is already a gift to them. May you and your family have a fun Valentine's Day! :))

My boyfriend booked a train ticket on valentines day... and alone...without me. When I asked him, he told me he forget this date already since he never celebrating it. lol That's my poor valentines plan. I was planning to cook some chocolate with him. Seems no chance already.

When I first read "my bf booked a train ticket on a valentines day" I was like: Aww, how sweet. Then when I continued reading, I was like: -.-" Maybe he's trying to surprise you or something? I think cooking chocolates for him is good. It will remind him how much effort and trouble you had of doing the chocolate while he left you alone and he's on his valentines date with himself. :))

I hope there will be a surprise. Or i will make a chocolate with super strange taste. Then he will not only can realize how much effort i had, but also the consequence of forgetting important date. :-)

I did not prepare anything, to Valentines Day. I never celebrate Valentines Day. For me, love can be expressed at any time. There is nothing special for me in the Valentines Day. As a typical day for me. Everyone was very excited, to celebrate the Valentines Day. But, I do not have any plans.

We're the same. I also didn't prepare anything since I somehow find it a waste of money and I'm actually single so I don't really need to spend xD Yesterday was also a typical day for me. And you're right, love can be expressed on that particular date, it can be expressed at any time, any day, any where, as long as what you feel towards each other is true. I just don't find the reason why people in our country are making it a big deal if they have no someone to spend their valentines with and sometimes call themselves a loser for not having one. O_O Thanks for the reply any ways! :)

The Valentine's Day for me? I would say, a day like any other, or one of the 365. Ok, ok I might have avoided commenting, but I have to understand that there are people like me that a partner, a love, they have not, have never been and most likely never will have ! I'm saying this because I have already arrived at the age of 37 years.

Yeah, Valentines Day would also be an ordinary day to others. And you're already 37? Dude, you look 30 years old in your avatar. But hey, don't say that you might not have a partner. Who knows, maybe you'll find one some time in the future. There's also a saying that goes, "life begins at forty." So I think it's not too late or something :))
