Amy Chandran said celebrating Valentine's Day with friends as a single person was just as fun as commemorating the occasion as a couple.

Amy should probably learn about orgasms. She'd change her tune pretty quick.

/Unless, of course, they're planning a menage-a-trois thing in which case, never mind.

Since when do orgasms require another person?

Sure, it's better when there's someone else, but it's not exactly a requirement.

Well, if yer filming for one. Sure you could always use a tripod but that's kinda boring.

God damn that's just creepy.  I mean, it's creepy enough that there is a market for cuddle pillows with cartoon girls printed on them already.  But add the fact that they are obviously little underage cartoon girls is just plain wrong.

It's the duty of single people to go to restaurants being loud and obnoxious, in order to ruin as many peoples' dates as possible.

Possibly have a little shiat under the table.

I would've gone more with "But add the fact that he is cuddling with them on public transportation is just plain wrong" but I guess there's a lot of wrong to choose from there.

I will be spending the day with my Transgender MTF friend by first going to the Hibachi Grill off university ave for all you Minnesota Farkers. And then we will spend the rest of the day playing video games and watching Anime. Alcohol may be involved at some point. Who knows.

You could just stand up, and make a short but accurate speech....

"Excuse me, ladies, you do realize that every man here tonight hates this stupid Valentine's dog and pony show, and are only spending an outrageous amount of money to shut you up and get your legs spread. If the woman at the table next to you agreed right now to fark the man you are here with, he'd be out the door with her so fast you'd think his head was on fire and his ass was catching. Have a lovely evening."

Hate to break it to you, but if your media filter is still so weak that you even remembered it was valentine's day tomorrow before seeing the headline, and you're single, then you're not an "adult" in anything but the strict legal sense.

Adults don't really care that much about other people's affairs, rarely even noticing them unless invited and certainly don't horn in on other people's events just because they feel they're lacking sufficient attention for a day.  That's thirteen-year-old-girl stuff, there.

//Will probably have forgotten about it again by the time another hour has rolled by.
//Actually usually forget it when I'm not single, too, but I've never forgotten a scheduled date and tend to buy little trinkets and stuff for girlfriends randomly anyhow, just by virtue of being raised in the south, so I rarely get in much trouble for it.

Now that's a CSB.  

I remember back in high school, my wife (then girlfriend) went to her senior prom.  While there, her ex-boyfriend (now out of the closet as gay) had a fight with his same sex date, who wanted to leave early and go to a party.  So he ended up riding home with us.

So there I am, after prom with my girlfriend and her now gay ex boyfriend in the back seat, in tears and screaming about his asshole of a boyfriend.  And me, in the driver's seat, not even upset about not getting laid because the situation was so surreal that I was trying not to laugh because I just knew it would be a great story some day.

You probably still could have gotten some that night. A couple of wine coolers and he would have been up for anything.

You must live in isolation, because all the stores I go into have Valentine's day stuff out, and radio music/ads keep plugging it. It's like trying to avoid Christmas.

I'm too ugly and don't clean up well enough for gay men.  But then, sometimes I kind of wish I were gay, just because I would farking clean up in a leather bear bar.

Fair enough, I really haven't been shopping for other than groceries in a while, I'm kinda poor.  I'm sure if I'd been to a clothing store or, god help me, a mall in the last week they'd probably still be pumping gel through my lungs to get out all the pink glitter.

As far as radio goes, learn to block the commercials.  I repurposed the passive/aggressive shiat I used to do to my mother as a teenager to deal with audio ads, I can never remember them past the moment they conclude anymore unless they specifically catch my attention somehow.

Summoner101: Or you can just act like it was any other day like Non-Christians treat Christmas.


I'm non-Christian (atheist) but LOVE Christmas.  It's because a ubiquitous, fairly secular holiday in the States at this point.  It's just fun.  Get together with people, have a lot of food, give presents to those you love/like...  It's just an excuse to take a few days off and enjoy life and loved ones.

We could use a few more of those in our country.

They can have it. The lovely Mrs. Otto and myself have been off of valentines day for about five years now. Fark a bunch of crowded resteruants and the exchanging of shiatty trinkets. We do put on the dog for our anniversaries though.

I'm a paramedic, and my wife is a nurse.  We tend to never celebrate holidays, birthdays, or special events when we are supposed to.  Nature of our schedules don't allow.  If we celebrate any of these days within the same month, it's a win for us.

I clicked the link hoping a site called "Asia Diva" would provide me with something to think about tomorrow after dinner with my wife, and possibly during.
 
2013-02-13 08:18:30 AM
Yeah right, independence.  What a load of shiat.

I'm going to celebrate booze.

The best thing about being single on Valentines Day is that you don't have to celebrate Valentines Day.
 
2013-02-13 08:26:39 AM
Take it, it's yours.  I don't want it.

I scored two rufie's from a friend.  I'm set for valentine's day.

I'm going to spend Single People Awareness Day the same way I'm spending every Thursday for the first 3 months of this year - sitting grand jury.

I'm take PornHub to dinner and a movie.  She seems like a fan of the Shoney's Dinner Buffet and Adam Sandler, so it's a match made in eHarmony.  I've got a feeling that my sticky dick is going to be covered in popcorn by the end of the night.  Planetary high-fives!!
 
2013-02-13 08:36:50 AM
I'm married, but my hubby is on the other side of the atlantic. Probably will spend tomorrow crying and listening to Lovesong on the Adele cd, along with every other song that makes me weep.

:(
 
2013-02-13 08:37:55 AM
We don't celebrate valentines day in my household. I refuse to. My wife says she agrees with my decisions but I know if I showed up with some sappy gift that will only be so much garbage in a week that she'd be happy.

/still not doing it
 
2013-02-13 08:40:23 AM
I plan to spend the day making phone calls to everyone I know whose partner is cheating on them and informing them of said infidelity, making sure that future Valentine's Days will always be tainted by the memory. Then I'll seduce a married man. Maybe two. Happy Valentine's Day!
 
2013-02-13 08:42:54 AM
Valentine's Day is women's roller derby with the sound turned down and the punching and decking, emotionally, turned up. It is a cubicle to cubicle drone war where the men are remote operators and the women buzz each other with their once-per-year plastering of abashed affection. Flowers go to the lowest-ranking pawns on the board; victors usually sport precious metals; some take ground with tales of expensive dinners and more. It is total war, female self-worth, and status seeking all wrapped up in a warm tortilla of "take that!"

I am not a fan of Singles Awareness Day.

However, Feb 15th is discount chocolate day, which I am more than happy to celebrate.

YAY! Valentine's! I brined a turkey overnight and am making a turkey dinner today. My New Year's Eve date (Hawtie Middle Aged Metal Head Dude) and I aren't a "romantic item", but we're making this our "Valentine's Buddies day", and enjoying it anyway. I have some food deliveries to make tomorrow for a few of our old customers from the restaurant, so my sis will drive and help set up, then we'll be off to the next one. We'll deliver the "desserts only" or special request single items tonight. The day after Valentine's we rampage local stores and buy a bunch of the now half off or 75% off the better boxed chocolates and other candies for later baking projects. If they come with a stuffed toy most will be given to the local school for homeless children.

I love any holiday that gives me an excuse to buy tons of stuff on the cheap the day after. Especially if it's stuff I can or do use in my cooking/baking projects or that I know will brighten another person's day. I really do like shopping and cooking for others more than I do for myself, so if anyone wants a box of "Chocolate Junk cookies", you know who to ask. It's always the first thing I make with "leftover" chocolates, followed closely by Candy Bar/Truffle Hot Chocolate. I love Valentine's, Easter, Halloween and Yule because they just have the BEST selection of candies and "stuff". How could I not love them, single or not?
 
2013-02-13 08:54:11 AM
Valentine's Day is much easier to avoid than Christmas. I don't hear Valentine's carols saturating the airwaves a full two months before the event. My kids won't bug me for Valentine's Day presents. I'm not going to see that many commercials with Cupid in them. Hell, I get reminded more of sad and lonely singles from eHarmony commercials during the rest of the year.

The most I will concede to this romantic 'holiday' is a big plate of sushi with the wife celebrating our love.

Yes. Lets encourage people to spend the day alone and not go the extra mile to meet someone on v day.
Ive gotten dates from giving smiling girls flowers on valentines day... Take advantage.

Just finished off my divorce and really don't care about Valentines day at all. Thursday will be like any other day, wake up, work, go home, walk dog, eat and go to bed.

Seeing as He hasn't even started the hormone treatment yet I would say only if you're into skinny guys.
