Porn!

Actually this is the first year I don't feel awkward being single, I barely registered it was upcoming at all. Normally I book the day off and watch a load of films/play a load of games and avoid the hell out of it.

Mortai Gravesend:
I honestly never even remember which day is supposed to be Valentine's day most of the time. I see some stuff for it for a while, then one day it's gone. I don't really care at all, and never understood why someone would.

Man, I wish I could not notice. I almost managed to forget about it this year, but people just will not shut the fuck up about it. At work, at dance, at the pub, fucking everywhere.

OT: Go to work in the morning. Come home in the afternoon. Eat, play videogames, listen to music and go to sleep. Same as every tuesday. Balls to it.

Well no, I do notice that it is coming up. Like people trying to sell chocolate roses at my university. I just kinda look at them, walk by and go on doing what I was doing. I just stop thinking about it afterwards because it has nothing to do with me and I've got other stuff on my mind.

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".

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

lacktheknack is right you know, you've just released the Kraken.

Nah, not really. One reply is hardly going to send the thread into chaos.

Well I normally ignore St.V's, but this year I'll be downloading the ME3 demo while ignoring St.V's

Last year's Valentine's Day was a lot of work. Made her happy and whatnot... but I was just glad when it was over. Even the sex at the end wasn't as good as the usual stuff. Never did understand the appeal of romance or narcotics. I've been told they're one and the same.
This year I'm single, so I get to ignore Valentine's Day... and I consider myself fortunate.

Considering I'm recently single I'm going to be just like I am now, In a state of denial

Cavan:
I have the first half of my epic day planned:

Get up
Shower
Shave
Go to a job interview
Maybe buy a sandwich
DEVOUR THE SANDWICH!!

That's all I got so far but I want to call this super special day... the day of sandwich oppression.

I have just made your day 100x more awesome, you can thank me later at night on tuesday when you eat the hell out of that sandwich.

If i'm going to ask one thing in return, make it an awesome sandwich... for me...

OT: I'm going to wake up, do day things then go to sleep :D.

Not caring. I've spent every one in my life alone (my two relationships both started in April and ended after a few months), so I really just don't care. I'm not particularly interested in and don't really have the time for having a girlfriend.

I'm a romantic. I think Valentines Day is BS. If i'm going to show my love for you i'll do it sporadically. The one day i'll never show my love with gifts is Valentines day. It's a pointless day for people who feel bad for not showing their love better.

Anywho, I will be giving guitar lessons on tuesday.

Sitting at home brooding, most likely. Oh well!

Game on and continue working on important school projects. And try not to be awkward around my crush.

I imagine someone has already said this but I can't be bothered to read 4 pages just to put 'lol ninja'd'
But I'll be playing the Mass Effect 3 demo

Buying new costume items for the 360 version of Soulcalibur V.

Meh I just got a girlfriend today and I have no idea what to buy her or if I should buy or anything at all so it's not all that great. Valentine's day is just a holiday cooked up by card making companys. The only plus is side is you're almost guaranteed to get laid if you are in a relationship.

Probably (and Ironicly) playing Catherine all day.

I just don't really pay it any attention at all. Im way too busy with uni. So much so that I don't pay a whole lot of attention to what's going on around me. :-P

This will be the first valentines day in 5 years that I will be single... unfortunately of the 4 I was with my ex, I was away for 3 of them! :P

Valentines day is just a commercial holiday. As much as I am one of the soppy romantic types, I know that romance is meant to be spontaneous... What is spontaneous about habing a day of enforced romance on the same day every year?

Personally I am in the military, deployed at the moment. Nobody here is with there loved ones (well, bar one couple I found, who were just lucky), so we will just be working, and having a normal day.

i think valentines day is the most retarded "holiday" ever made...that said, im in a rship and my girlfriend does infact like the holiday so instead of ruining it for her by being moody, i bought her a present and a card and am letting her pick a movie to watch. That being said ive been single for every other valentines day (had other relationships but they always ended/started before/after valentines day) and i survived by..well...not caring about it!

I don't know, I'll probably cry myself to sleep on the night before and the night of

hmmm you don't want to know.

Well it falls on a Tuesday. I don't have to be in uni till Thursday and I don't have a job. So I guess I'll sleep till noon, make a fat bacon and egg toastie, play Gears 3 with my flatmate and when we get bored I'll fire up Minecraft. I'll do that till about 11pm then read away the last hour of the night.

Having been single on V-day for ooooh, 8 years now, I've developed a nack for not giving a monkey's.

Ignoring it. Ignoring it completely.

Still, if it turns out someone wants to do something that day, at least my schedule is open. ;D

I will be spending my night at work. Just like any other Tuesday.

So when did the Escapist turn into that annoying friend who just assumes you cannot possibily be happy single? I'm going to get through Valentine's Day by ignoring it. I have no reason to celebrate it so I have no reason to pay it any attention. It's no different to how I don't celebrate Hanukkah since I'm not Jewish.

I get to laugh at all my friends at school who didn't or forgot to get their girlfriend or boyfriend a present :)

Fijiman:

You suave ninja bastard! Of all the times I've used that clip, this is the first time it has been completely relevant to the topic.

Great, now I have to think.

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

what are you doing

Your mother. *snort*

OT: Wake up, leave the house, get jelly for a few seconds, eat something, come home tired, go on internet, ignore my work, and think about everything I've ever done wrong. Like any other day, really.

I'm dating.

Screw that being single thing. I'm not just gonna sob my way through the day.

Not going to do anything. First of all I don't care about dating, haven't found a girl I like yet. Second of all even if I did Valentines Day is a commercial rip-off that makes you feel bad about not giving that special someone a good day even though any other given day of the year should be fine.

Am I alone in thinking V-Day is a cynical marketing ploy?

I don't consider myself unromantic either, I'll do something on the day when I'm in a relationship, but personally, I prefer to do something special when I feel like it or when I feel she needs a boost, not when Hallmark's and Thornton's share prices need a pickup.

Do something, sure, but isn't it better to surprise your partner, instead of just doing the expected?

As it is, I'll do my best to ignore it, which is fairly easy, done my shopping, and I don't watch much TV or read the papers.

Usually I'll send my ex-girlfriend (we're still unbelievably close) a card, and maybe a McDonald's gift card if I can afford it. She was never the kind of person you could buy gifts for cause never seemed to want anything.

Other than that, I'll probably do what I usually do. Play video games, watch movies, read books.. whatever I feel like doing. If my ex is online, and she usually is, we'll hang out for a few hours. We particularly enjoy playing Minecraft together on our friend's server.

Hmm.. maybe we can all hang out there on the 14th, that'd be kinda fun. I'd have to run it by everyone, though. Our "get together" days with the others are kind of rare, so it'd be cool to have a day where we just spend time chilling, talking, and building crap or exploring.

I just got a divorcee a month a go so I probably going to get drunk an sob in the darknes.

Ponies.
ALL the ponies.

Then hugging a pillow for 10 minutes before eating supper.

To me, Valentine's day this year isn't when couples are extra attracted to each other for twenty-four hours, although that is certainly on my radar.

No, to me, it's the day the Mass Effect 3 demo comes out. Can't wait! :)

The same thing I do every night: Try to take over the world. That or reading or watching something or whatever.
