Calling all single people, what are you doing to survive the 14th?

Same as usual, Valentines day has never really bothered me; sure when im dating I make some sort of token effort but even then it's not a big deal for me.

I'm going to open my laptop, start my 360. Then watch My little pony and play Fallout New Vegas.

I think its on monday... Which means school. I get more crap for not having a girlfriend. Yay.

I work that day. I work in a grocery store with a well-stocked floral department.

So I'll spend it wrapping flowers for awkward men being romantic to their lady friends.

Pity me.

I'm sure people have said this before but, buy cheap chocolate and watch funny internet videos.

I'm planning on going on a Ask That Guy marathon that day.

I dunno. Maybe get out of bed. Make some chicken. The day is open for anything since I got every Tuesday off. Also praise myself lucky that I'm not a part of a tradition which is kept alive only because the card industry wants us to buy Valentine cards. Valentine's Day is like Christmas except it's not fun for guys.

Playing Mass Effect 2 all day to get things ready for Mass Effect 3.

On the 14th I'll spend my time being happy that i'm not in some juvenile relationship based on emotional insecurities.
Seriously guys - relationships are not worth it while you are young. Been there, done that, waste of time. As much as you may not understand yet, casual hookups are far, far more pleasurable then attempting a relationship with a woman when so many seem to be boring, insipid, uninspiring and incredibly insecure.

Huh? My friend calls Valentine's Day "Single's Awareness Day" like it's supposed to be some bad thing to be sans-significant-other on the 14th. But I never dug that logic. Being the survivor of 4 (count 'em 4) relationships with women who were perfectly likeable before the words "Would you like to go out with me?" were uttered. Then like I said the magic fucking words they changed in to evil psychotic bitch cunts who's only form of obtaining sustenance was by absorbing my soul through cold stares and meaningless cat-fights with my female friends. (Most of whom aren't even into guys) So I never understood the point of being in a relationship, and therefore never understood the point of Valentine's day. Maybe it's a result of getting too comfortable in the "friend zone" of a bunch of lesbians. The fact that I'm never hurting for female companionship led to my theory that putting up with someone I can't stand just on the off chance she might have sex with me if I'm "good" is just a no win endeavor. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have an unfiltered internet connection and porn featuring hotter women than I will ever meet in real life is just a button click away.

But I digress. The 14th is a Tuesday so I'll be at work

I'm gonna go around downtown and mope about and hopefully crash someones valentines.

That's some fairly shitty advise, it must be said. Sounds like someone has some women issues.

What do you consider young?

That would be Tuesday. I work the morning shift, get home completely exhausted and dump myself into bed. Day done.

My brother is having a St. Valentine's Day Massacre Party.
Should be kickass.

You shouldn't have gotten his attention. Everything of note that he says results in a flame war.

I get the feeling that there's a bit of satire in the name "The Cool Kid".

Skyrim, My Little Pony, study, listen to music on Youtube, that sort of thing. I'm not interested in the holiday or its connotation anyway.

SmashLovesTitanQuest:
Where does the valentines day tradition come from?

If its somewhere in Europe, download Medieval II and spend your day crushing that country.

from ancient rome. It was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, and was later deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI.
medieval 2 is too 'advanced'

Doclector:

why not go out and meet the other singles to hook up on that day?

Valanthe:
The same thing I do every night, Pinkie. Try to take over the world!

NARF! +42 Internets for you!

By the sounds of it Valentines' Day is just one big hassle, especially if you're like me and can't buy presents for anyone because they're always wrong. I get around this by being single and playing videogames, go me!

Doclector:
Ah yes, that whole valentines thing. The day of the year on which all single people are supposed to feel bad.

Worse yet, it probably works on some level.

So, what are you doing to keep some semblance of sanity on this most cr*ppy of holidays? Are you barricading yourself away? Going out in desperation? Or are you just gonna open fire on a high street full of nauseating couples judging you for your apparent lack of a soul?

Me? Well, it's time for KILLATHON 2K12!!!

Yes, the yearly tradition in which I spend practically the entire hellish day indoors playing violent games of all kinds, going to the extent of tracking my virtual bodycount. Last year's high score was approx 9000 dead! Big thank you to the former citizens of megaton for helping so greatly in this objective! Let's hope for 10000 this year!

Actually, the only thing that annoys me on Valentine's Day is fellow single people putting WAY too much influence on how bad Valentine's Day is. Just let the lovers have fun and stop acting like V-Day's some big conspiracy to make single people feel bad. I like to think of V-Day as "the day before the day where candy gets really cheap".

Usually I would break out the ice cream and watch animated movies once I finished my homework.

This year, I can ignore my singleness with a ME3 demo! Yay!!!!

EDIT: captcha gave me a sad face. That has got to be the most depressing thing ever.

Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 3, maybe some lunch and possibly if I've got time... Mass Effect 3!

Thinking about it, probably.
I have my buttons though.

I'll be hungover as all hell, weeping into the sleeves of my Jedi bath robe at 4 in the afternoon as I watch Serenity for the umpteenth time.

Well, I'm sleeping over at a (male) friend's house with some other (male) friends. So we'll wake up and probably be slightly sad and mope a bit. Then carry on with our day.
Might try and find the most hilariously innapropriate Valentine's card ever and send it to somebody. I'm liking The Oatmeal's ones. XD

I knew Valentines Day was close, I just wasn't totally sure when it was, I thought it was possibly today with all the people already talking about it. My friend wants me to go out with him to search for desperate girls, eh, while I don't doubt that we could find some, I really don't feel like taking advantage of emotionally fragile women right now, so I'll probably pass on that. I have college classes earlier in the day, so I suppose there is a chance I might run into some PDA but honestly it doesn't really bug me, if I let other peoples happiness upset me I'd just sort of feel like a dick. If you have someone than good for you, if not than whatever, it is just another day. I maintain that the holiday is pretty pointless and I've never enjoyed it but it really doesn't bother me that much, seems like most people hate it though, which confuses me as to why the fuck it still exists?

A metric fuckton of alcohol and playing Skyrim, probably.

trolling people,in general make them feel bad for doing something special. ie. claiming how they're idiots for buying things during a capitalistic holiday.

I ignore it simply due to the fact that I depise the commercial known as valentine's day.

And no it's not because I'm single, its because that's what it is a commercial do couples really need a set date to buy their wife, husband, girlfriend or boyfriend a gift? You can do that any day of the year. Also why do you need gifts to measure your love for a person, what ever happened to just caring. Seriously fuck valentines day.

huh? it's that time of the year. Valentines day usually passes without me even knowing it was here. and if someone says "what are you doing on Valentines day?"
i respond "the usual, playing video games."

cause i mean what else should i do? I'm sixteen, i can't really go to a club or anything.

I'll inhale.

After that I'll exhale.

It's a system that's been working well for 22 years and I don't expect to fail me on the 14th.

Wake up
Skool work
Eat
Skool work part 2: revenge of the papers
X3 TC and/or Risen
Sleep

St. Valentine's Day massacre.

Seriously though, I'll probably go about my day as per normal and try and forget about the idiotic Hallmark "holiday".

paintballing inhonor of the st. valentines day massacre. red paint only

I'm single by choice. I hate the idea of being in a relationship.
