I hope I get that ipod video for valentines day. *Crosses fingers*.

Personally, I'm impartial to VD. VD is great now because I am with someone but I didn't mind VD when I was single either. It's just a day to be extra nice to people I guess, that's the way I view VD anyway. I hope to share my VD with you all on February 14th.

Valentine's day is fake. It's a designated, have to prove it or else you get in trouble day. Love should be expressed all of the time, in little ways, not just on a certain given day. It provokes expectations, disappointment, and heartache (for those who have lost a loved one or are single). For some, it's a reminder of what could have been, what was and what isn't.

My friend's girlfriend told me that she expects a diamond ring and a proposal this year. Little does she know that he never plans on her being his wife.

My friend's fiance died of a heart attack one week before Valentine's day. She cried and cried and cried on "that day of love". All it did was remind her that he was gone.

An older lady friend of mine whose husband of 53 years passed away. She commented on how this will be the first year he won't bring her flowers......

I don't like Valentine's day anymore.

The worst one is "Sweetest's day". I told my girlfriend that I refuse celebrate it. I never know what to get her anyway, so I go with a single rose and dinner.

Its my sisters birthday that day, also its my boyfriend birthday a week later so its just a crazy time of the year for me.
Its never been a day where I demand love from the other. I agree its kinda silly to just express your love that day.
Now what I remember about V-day is your younger years when the boy you want to like you at school gives you one of those silly cards.
