    I dunno, I'm finding this all quite interesting and thinking I should have advertised the jewelry I make back in January :p

    My G/F and I are getting together at her place for dinner and dessert. There are gifts involved, but I already gave hers to her (double dark chocolate truffles, body butter, and a map book to plan our adventures). I know she has some stuff for me, but I have no idea what it is :D

    As for jewelry, I make jewelry, she gets jewelry for every occasion so I'm making it a point to NOT give her jewelry for Valentines day. Besides, her birthday is at the end of the month and I've already got her jewelry for that made :naughty:

    I wanna be on your list. They have cool stuff I never get around to ordering.

    Bindibdgi, it's sad that every holiday has become so commercialized, but that's the nature of the beast known as MONEY. There are some places that don't increase their prices; there's a fast food chain here that makes hamburgers that are known as belly bombers. For the past few years they advertise for Valentines; they put tablecloths on the tables with flowers, and people actually get dressed up and go there for their Valentine's date, and the hamburgers are still 59 cents.

    Who says you have to go out? Have a nice romanic dinner at home with flowers and candles. Just remember Venus rules women's hearts, and we count each single nice thing you do as one point no matter if it's big or small, it's one point.

    There's nothing wrong with doing something romantic on another date, but most guys don't unless prodded or the romantic bug bites them.

    Well, it's a good chance to see my woman wearing something hot, then after a nice meal, not wearing it.

    And thats EXACTLY the problem, most guys dont bother. If you dont bother to make your lady fell special once in a while, then tbh you dont really deserve her.

    Me and my missus are doing f-all for valentines, for me its the most unromantic thing to do something romantic on a day romance is expected. If you really want to do something nice do it on a day thats random, i've been goin out with my gf for nearly 3 years and I still try to make an effort.

    I'll often pay for my parents to have a meal so I can cook her a nice candle lit one at home and we get nicely dressed up, theres no point to that but thats why its fun :) And just little things like that. But come valentines day i'll just log on to msn at 9 and talk to her like I do every other night and not mention a word of it.

    Of course having said all that, I still like to celebrate steak and BJ day

    yeah true, but whats stopping you doing that at anyother time of year? Buy something hot, get some wine in have a nice meal and then get down to business :D

    I climbed up to her window at 5am and placed a gift and a card in her room for her to find when she woke up. She seemed to like that, and returned fire by leaving some gifts in my room while I was in the shower.

    Uh-oh, lecture time *chugs coffee*
