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.

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.

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 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'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!!

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!"
 
2013-02-13 08:45:40 AM
I am not a fan of Singles Awareness Day.

However, Feb 15th is discount chocolate day, which I am more than happy to celebrate.
 
2013-02-13 08:46:55 AM
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.

Up until this year i have always been single on Singles Awareness Day, hell i've been dumped on it so the girl i was seeing could go to a singles party with her friend!

But this is the case no longer, and as much as i don't want to hold it over the heads of those without anyone to share the day with...i'm happily looking forward to baking cookies and dipping strawberries in chocolate tonight to give her tomorrow.

Just don't do anything rash out of loneliness like reup on your WoW subscription like i did on one fateful V-day...

My artsy-fartsy daughter is making up a line of greeting cards as a part-time job/money-maker. I've convinced her to make a line for "awkward occasions" - (happy vasectomy/hysterectomy, congrats on you son/daughter coming out, muted reaction to your Asperger's diagnosis, etc.).
A "celebrate your singlehood" card would go great in this product line.
 
2013-02-13 09:33:35 AM
I as a lesbian who has had demanding biatchy girlfriends in the past who got all bent out of shape for me forgetting Valentine's Day (Birthday, Anniversary, Xmas, whatever) I can sympathise with people who don't get the whole Valentine's thing.

When I was single, I did not care, and now that I am not, I still do not care. Thankfully girlfriend of today is more like me and has to be reminded that it is her birthday when the day rolls around, sort of like me.

I enjoyed being single and the only people who were sorry for me, were other people and I have enjoyed being with someone, but only if they were rather low maintenance in these commercial holiday whatever days...

I did a test once, I have like a 60% male brain. Whatever that means. Probably explains a lot, even though I get taken for a femme all the time, and I am not even butch.

Maybe you could invite XHamster along and have a HOT*HOT*HOT*Virtual Threeway. Oh baby.


Seems someone could make an inordinate amount of money selling vibrators and chocolate on The Valentine Day for those craving the Oxy-Endorphine dosing. Because when it's all said and done, as spentmiles points out so well, nobody can love you like you can love you.

"Adults who refuse to let societal norms stop them from celebrating Valentine's Day just because they're single" seem to be people who are so sucked in to following societal norms that they can't let a single manufactured holiday pass by without wanting to take part.

If you need confirmation that other people are "celebrating their independance" by joining a movement of people who are "celebrating their independance" then you aren't being very independant now, are you?

It's like nobody can be their own person anymore.  "fear of missing out" has forced people, who think they are forced to miss out on something, create something else that they can brag about and cause other people to fear missing out on.

Quick, post pictures on facebook all through the night of you and your single friends having fun!

So instead I'm going to go see an action flick, and do a small pub crawl afterwards to see if I can pick up any tearfully single women who don't mind making a drunken mistake.

All this lady and her friends are accomplishing is clogging up already crowded restaurants and shows and making the night worse for couples who are trying to enjoy it. I don't know why I'm in the minority on this, but I tend to analyze the risk/reward factor before deciding to do shiat, in this instance I would say, "I can go to the same restaurant one night later with much less hassle, waiting, and noise."

Remember that the ladies at the strip club need love too

Oh, and $1 bills. Lots and Lots of $1 bills

So glad the wife is on board with this- though I kinda get it twice, since all she wanted for V-Day (which we're doing today) was for me to fix her a nice dinner, and she loves steak- 6oz prime tenderloin, twice baked potatoes, steamed veggies with herb butter and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Parlaying the BJ later isn't exactly difficult.

/also got her a HelloTouch by JimmyJane
//she's pregnant, so she's kinda "weird" right now, ifyaknowwhatimean
///looking forward to helping her try it out

I accidentally set a lunch date with a girl I just broke up with but wanted to at least give her the chance for closure this Thursday without thinking.  Woops.  I normally don't have to worry about this day.

incendi: Shadowknight: 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.

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.


Here's the real scenario:

As he sat on the train, Jiro became aware that he was being watched. It was a little unnerving. In Tokyo, people tend to mind their own business, so this undue attention was not only unpleasant to Jiro, it was kind of rude. Still, being a proper Japanese delivery boy, he kept his mouth shut and-- subconsciously-- clutched the two body pillows he was delivering to the shop in Akihabara closer to himself.

Why did  he get picked to make this delivery, anyway? There was no way he could carry two "love pillows" around and  not have other people assume they were his, or that he was some lonely, sad otaku who couldn't get a girlfriend. He  had a girlfriend! Sure, he couldn't talk about her because it was a secret, but he knew from the moment he met Akiko backstage at the SDN48 concert that it was true love. Unfortunately, her involvement in the pop group meant dating was forbidden, so every time he saw her it required some sneaking around. If she were caught with a man, she would be shamed, dishonored, and probably kicked out of the group. He had no choice but to go along with the secret nature of their relationship for her protection. She loved him, but she also loved her career. He understood and went along with it in order to see her.

But oh! When they were together it was magical! Akiko was so beautiful, and he greatly enjoyed seeing her smile. It was the most beautiful sight on this Earth, to him. How utterly depressing that he couldn't see her again for another two months! SDN48 was touring and he could hardly follow them around-- Not just because it would be dangerous for Akiko, but because he simply couldn't afford to take time away from work to tour around Asia.

So here he sat on the train, feeling a bit sad that his true love was so far away, carrying these ridiculous pillows, with some  gaijin not far away, obviously snapping pictures with his cell phone. Jiro sighed. This was going to be a long train ride.

Sometimes, this job was not worth 200,000 yen per month.

wyltoknow: I'm going to a speed dating event tomorrow. Meh, why not? I've never even seen a lesbo speed dating thing around here before and I've never been to one of these in general. Seems like it could be fun. Or terribly awkward. Either way, I enjoy new experiences. I don't expect to cure the single thing.


This would make a great story if you're a guy

IAMBOB: My roommate is having the married woman he's been seeing over for Valentines day dinner. Technically she's separated, but her ex is a psycho, and I plan on not being home when she's there in case he decides to pay a visit.


Uh-huh, sure the "ex" is "psycho".  Isn't that always the case?  I'm finding in a lot of cases the "psycho ex" is a pretty decent person that had no idea they were this person's ex because they still live together, sleep together, and do married people / family stuff together including making dinners and whatnot.

But he/she should take the hint that even though we live together, sleep together, and do married people / family stuff together that I totally don't consider us married, right?  I'm amazed how often this excuse still works.

Regarding the headline, I thought that as a single you could remind yourself that you're not unhappy in a loveless marriage and not merely "going through the motions" pretending everything is OK, looking forward to a divorice after the kids have left the nest.

/be thankful that you're not married with your spouse doing time in the slammer

Meh. The one boon of being single is NOT having to deal with these greeting card holidays.  What are these people thinking?

My reccomended Valentines day tradition for couples is posts by bitter single people, laugh at their misery together with your SO, then log onto various accounts to troll them. It's quite romantic.
