i was just talking to a friend of mine and we were just joking around and we were talking about ways to make women mad and what really did it and he was like yeah one of the big ones is if you forget anniversaries, valentines day, or birthdays and i was like yeah i know all about that...and he said i don't really know why women get mad when you forget valentines day and i was like well its important to them i guess so i usually try and remember unless something else big is going on in my life and then i can't...but other than that i told him that i ususally try and remember it and write it down somewhere...so i was just wondering if the women here on myspace get mad whenever a guy forgets valentines day? and if you do why? thanks for taking the time to read my discussion and i hope that you all have a great day...

Honestly, I don't. LOL! I think this is why my husband loves me so much ever since we got together. hahaha. I NEVER got mad if we didn't celebrate Valentine's Day. In fact, I'd get surprised if he'd give me something on that day because everything is so freaking expensive. come to think of it, I think practically like a guy. Of course, I want romantic dinner and stuff but on Valentine's Day? Not really. My guy can pamper me any day of the year. I think women get mad because traditionally, they EXPECT for a date or a romantic anything on this date. Blame it on media, blame it on promos of restaurants, hotels flowershops, etc. Hope you had a great day too.

myspace? Don't you mean mylot? lol, that's okay honest mistake. Been on myspace a lot lately? Anyway, I do not mind if he forgets but I know that he won't as we have a calendar in our room, and he had one before I moved in. He didn't forget valentine's day but instead spent a whole week before if not longer, just doing cute little things to make me smile. I think the only time a girl should really get mad is if it's on her birthday, their child's birthday, or if it were their anniversary. That's just my take. I don't understand half the things women get angry about, and i'm a woman. Worse, I know i've gotten angry for the stupidest things and my fiance still loves me... To Err is human, if you forget just make it up to her, if she still wants to be heard headed then you don't need her. Case closed, what a girl can't say that about another girl?

I know exactly how it is to get distracted when people are talking. I keep telling my fiance not to talk when I am trying to type, but alas he doesn't! Glad you appreciate a woman who doesn't really mind if a guy forgets.

Ofcourse for me there is a slight tinge when my husband forgets but since I am aware he doesn't work and he doesn't have money only a greeting would be good for me.

Ya know, I would actually get mad if my guy forgot Valentine's Day. However, when I actually sit and think about it its pretty silly. He tells me he loves me everyday of the year why should this one date be more significant than our anniversary?

This has never happened to me as I am one of those nice people that drop hints. I do not believe a guy can forget Valentine's day as posters are all over the town and in shops etc, so it is more that he can't be bothered with it, so yes I would be mad. I think a guy would be mad too if a woman forgot.

well, valentine's day didn't really mean that much to me... i and my hubby try to express our love to each other every single day... not only on one specific day... i think valentine's day had been made use by businesses to make money and lots of profits by selling flowers, chocolates, cards, gifts, etc... it is not really necessary... the restaurants also charge double price on that day... i prefer not to spend my money unnecessarily on that day and do it on other normal day... take care and have a nice day...

Hi! No. I don't get angry, but I will be disappointed. On the other hand, I have a man that would also get disappointed when I forget one of these important things, like his birthday. It is like I have the man stuff and he has the sensitiveness stuff. Really weird. He makes problems of things that I don't.LOL! But then again, men and women will never understand each other. That is only normal. Respect and love is import. Take care, Margajoe

We dont always buy each other Valentines cards,when you have been a couple for many years then it isnt really essential to do it,neither do we buy each other expensive gifts, we would rather wait until there is something that we would both like and buy it then,or take the money and have a good meal out at a nice restaurant,there can be many good ways to celebrate

I'm a man and my girlfriend doesn't forget special days that are meaningful to our relationship. And i make sure also that i don't forget any events like anniversary, birthday and valentines day.

Hehe. You actually said myspace. That is one of the reasons I hate Valentine's Day. Maybe it was just bad luck that men I've been linked to seem to forget that day. Over the years it has become less and less meaningful. So whether or not he forgets or remembers, it doesn't matter anymore because I already expect they would forget it anyways.

Yes I do. As a matter of fact my husband forgot about Valentines Day this year and I was very angry and I guess a little sad But, then again I was 8 months pregnant at the time so my hormones were on overdrive. Anyways, I don't usually ask for much, just chocolates and 1 single rose. Valentines is once a year and I think that I deserve a little something every now and again.

I guess I'm a strange one. I don't ever remember anniversaries, Valentine's Day, etc. and don't celebrate them when I do remember. My guy and I prefer to celebrate every day of our relationship, and anniversaries and 'love' holidays don't mean much to us. We also do a reverse birthday gifting; he gets a present on my birthday and I get a present on his.

Valentine's day doesn't mean anything to me personally. I would be hurt if my husband ever forgot my birthday, but luckily he never has. I have to be careful or I'll forget his birthday though! I'm not sure why, but I feel like I have to keep reminding myself of it for the week or so before it (which happens to be now, in fact.) But it does bother me that my husband can never remember our anniversary. I don't care so much about him remember ON the day, because again, depending on what's going on in life at the time I've been known to let it pass by without remembering. But at any given time, like if I were to ask him right now "how long have we been married", he wouldn't know. I think he remember the date but not the year. I remember both and don't really understand why he can't remember the year.
