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.

Ninja'd. My exact feelings toward valentines day. Also, very few even celebrate it here in Norway.

I'm gonna wander the streets dressed as deadpool hip thrusting at couples.
Then shoot them :3

Aidinthel:
I deal with it by not caring at all. The only reason I even know Valentine's Day is coming up is the holiday themed episode of FiM today.

Lol, same. Well, exchange FiM with Adventure Time Valentines Eve special. It sometimes makes me feel like I wish I had a girlfriend or something, but not really much more so than the rest of the year. It's just a normal day. Oh, and it's also the anniversary of when Hanna is not a boy's name stop updating. So sad :(.

I may not be single but I might as well be, so I'll be crying into my pillow most of the day then probably getting asked out by one of the many guys who think my Facebook relationship status is a hoax and that I am in fact single, then feeling like an arsehole when I have to turn him down. Fun!

THAT my friend is the best plan for Valentine's day I have ever heard! But what will you be shooting them with? A water pistol, a nerf gun, and actual gun or are you going for irony by shooting them with Spidey's webs?

Playing the ME3 demo (though possibly not because of time zone differences). I've seen all the shit people have been peddling for Valentine's Day and concluded that I'm not missing out on much.

It's a Tuesday, so I'll be at work. I will probably dealing with the constant displays of affection by dating colleagues by inhaling large amounts of solvents. Ether all the way, baby!

Edit: whoa hang on, theres an ME3 demo out that day??!! I'll have to keep my senses a bit sharper then. Evening sorted!

As usual nothing much!

Seriously even if I would have someone right now what makes 14 feb special. Isn't every day special

I might look into the reason of life.. or try to get a bit back up freaking cold got me down :!

Chimichangas from a military grade air cannon my friend.

While I don't begrudge any of the happy couples their day, (I've been one of them myself often enough) I'll just be having a normal day. Even in relationships I never saw the point really. I have no problems taking a girl out to dinner but paying twice as much as you usually would to sit in a really busy restaurant is really not that fun. Just do it a day or two later. :)
Also, I think this is relevant.

Probably playing games in which I shoot, burn, slash, stab, pillage, destroy and run over a selection of soft-squishy sprites. I will also be drinking and cursing my ex who left me for a Navy dropout in an attempt to absolve myself of responsibility for my own bitterness (which wont work, as usual)

Either that or I will pop open a few beers, watch some porn, do some drawing and play the games I alluded to earlier and do my best to ignore it.

Considering I was supposed to meet a girl a few nights ago but she cancelled with mere hours to go, I'm surprisingly calm. This is third time in only 2 months this has happened to me and the second time the excuse: "I got really drunk last night and so feel awful today" has been used. Ladies? Is this the 21st century equivalent of "Sorry, I'm washing my hair"?

On the whole I would say I am at my worst around this time of year as it's a sore point and it rams home the fact that I have been desperately unlucky with women over the years. OK so it's a cynical exploitation created to wring more dosh out of us sentimental types but it's also been a source of humiliation and stark reminder for me too.

On the flip-side, I have heard of one or two groups in the past that, on Valentines day, actively try and split couples up. That is absolutely bang out of order! OK band together and unite in your singleness if you want (and I am sure there is irony in there, somewhere) but don't ruin someone else's happiness because you're a jaded, loveless misanthrope. I'm all of that and more and I don't set out to break people up!

Anyway...

well if I weren't a romantically active person only single in title(as I haven't chosen to associate a title to any one of the women I'm dating yet... though it's about that time again) I would choose my favourite way to celebrate valentines day, going out to find a lonely woman and introduce myself to her, after all finding a woman is easiest on this day of all days due to the simple fact that a lot of relationships tend to end before this date in a year, and valentines is the lonliest day of the year for a lot of people, it's almost impossible not to end up getting at the very least a date on that day... Or if I'm feeling antisocial, GET DRUUUUUUNK! 2-3 40s of vodka, one night, no worries!

I ain't never tried to split people up, aside from one time when I thought the girl involved was going to hurt one of my friends, but I've seen a few couples split up around this time, and I'm ashamed to say I practically laughed.

Fluffles:

I'd say it's shitty advise because women are not how you say they are. Yeah, sure, you might have experienced a shitty selection, but that's a heck of a view of things really, it's a fucking great generalisation made off your experiences. If you find someone you like, and they like you relationships are great. Fantastic. I'm dating an intelligent and beautiful girl who at the moment I can't think of any reason to break up with. I'm 19. Sure, it might end in the future, reasons may appear, but I'm very happy whilst it's lasting and I get something more meaningful than random hookups.
I advise people to go into relationships if they like the person. If it lasts a month, who cares? It's an experience. If the person has issues? Give them advice and then if they can't fix it themselves and you can't deal with it, say so and leave. If someone's stupid as fuck, give them reasons to learn, and don't sink to their level and just use them as a sex object.
Maybe it's just the group of friends I'm with, but fuck, they're all so wonderful and intelligent. I do not experience many people who fit to your list.
As long as you're open with your partner you're all good. I do like your advise of not just leaping headfirst into relationships though. Get to know a person. Spend a week or two with them. Then ask them out.

A generalisation based on experience...If that isn't the sensible grounding for a view then I don't know what is. Base it on pessimism? Optimism? Both seem very naive approaches in comparison.
You're 19...why are you in a relationship? Why not just be friends? Why do you need a special someone in your life? At that age they will most likely hold you back because you should be learning how to be independent, not codependent. Beautiful because she looks like a Vic Secrets model or because she's your girlfriend? It may on the outset sound like a cruel thing to say, but it is vital to address if you are shaping your perspective of reality around someone rather then learning how to be honest.
Also why not be friends? That way you can still emotionally confide in one another if the time calls for it but learn to be yourself independent from outside interference.
I learnt something early on - if someone offers you sound advice, follow it. There is no need to repeat the mistakes of the past if you have been pre-warned and that is what I am offering. You also fail to address the wonderful "breakup". If they are not mutual, and a lot will not be, that person is then gone from your life. You can't be friends and won't be friends due to one of the parties most likely harbouring lasting resentment and feelings towards the other person.
Why try to fix something that won't last? It's like trying to patch up a boat that's made from straw and glue when it begins to sink. Just bail and realise that your notions on what is a sea faring vessel were horribly off.
Open with your partner? Why at the age of 19 do you need such emotional support? Spend a week or two?!? Well that's terrible advice. How do you expect to learn about someone in two weeks? You aren't going to know their interests let alone emotional stability! You need to know them for closer to 6 months to figure if you will be any good for one another in a relationship.

I'm in a relationship because it makes me happy. I wouldn't be properly happy when around her if I couldn't be close to her. I've already dated her once, but we were naive at the time and it failed pretty hard. I went through another relationship after that failed and that ended pretty well. I'm a very honest person. Like, bluntly honest. So I explained everything to my ex, how it was, how I felt, so we're still friends.
My gf is not a vic secrets model. She has an underbite, but she has the most fantastic smile. I like to see her happy. I like to make her happy. It wouldn't matter how she looks. If you have ever thought someone to actually be beautiful you would understand. I tell her everything, if I don't like something I'll tell her. She doesn't shave her armpit hair? Don't care. She has the beginnings of a belly? Don't care. As long as she's not over or underweight, I don't care.
She is my best friend. And all a relationship takes is mutual understanding and some honesty. Not the other day she said that if I wanted to go "mess with" people she would be okay with that. I wouldn't, and I said that I would probably be uncomfortable if she did, but she can if she asks me because I can't hold her to anything. Seriously, it's shit like that that goes a long way. Complete honesty. Breakups are fairly simple if you have a mutual understanding. It's all about being able to talk about anything with your partner.

The thing that you don't seem to get is that relationships are great! And it doesn't matter if they fail, because you learn from them. It's okay to get hurt because you were loved. You can learn a lot when you spend an entire week not being separated from a person. Adding that up to 2 or 3 and you've learnt enough.
Maybe it's just me, but I can learn life stories in a day.
Having such a pessimistic view on things means you will never trust anyone.

As for the whole emotional support thing, I don't need it. It's easy to be single. I have plenty of friends and people to talk to. I can deal with my own problems. It's just more fun to hold someone close when either of you are having issues. That and getting drunk together is epic.

On Valentine's Day I'm going to a meeting with my new boss and some other people to talk about how my last two weeks have been (They love me). Then I'm going to draw a face on the side of my hand for giggles, go to my old school, ask a girl who is like a sister to me be my Valentine (whom I'm crushing on pretty hard), get rejected (I'm asking her cos I know I'll get rejected), feel a little down, get reminded of my ex and go home to listen to music which reminds me of her and cry.

Oh, also acquire KFC and game the rest of the time....

The only time it becomes a big deal is when people try to tell me it's a big deal.

Anyways, I'm still rather impressed with myself that I managed to spend Valentines Day last year with a girl. Now that I think back on it, it was one of the cute things where it was a disaster that ended up being fun.

She smelled nice. We got kicked out of a movie, drove to her friends house where I met her friends brother who just got out of jail, had a romantic evening at Ihop, went back to her friend's house and watched Red, went back to her house where I made out with her for the first time... Yikes, that was a year ago.... Well, she was still a bitch.

What were we talking about? Oh, right. I don't know. Maybe I'll man up and talk to the girl I've thought was cute in my class. If that most likely blows up in my face, I'll probably go about my day as I normally would, only getting slightly annoyed at the inevitable girl on Facebook saying something along the lines of "hate", "alone", and "Valentine's Day".

Participating in /b/'s raid of 9gag. Well I'm with the gorespam part, not the DDoS of dubious legality.
Then Warhammer. Lots. And lots. Of blood!

I'm gonna play the Mass Effect 3 demo all by myself.It's gonna be aweesome.

Forever alone...

I will be celebrating S.A.D. (single awareness day(such a lovely acronym :) ))
I also will be working most of the day after that i dunno.
I never really cared for valentine (probably being single my whole life has something to do with that) though i never seem to be able to forget when it is valentine. I think it has something to do with the fact my own b-day is just a couple of days before that.

Though shooting couple with a nerfgun sounds really tempting :)

Probably go to college, go to the local shops, go home, play some violent, VERY violent games until I have to go to bed and then cry myself to sleep.

It sounds like a good day to me. :D

and if anything happens one that day that will make me happy, a confession or something, now that'll make my day/year, I could only hope though.

I probably won't even notice Valentine's has passed until I see cheap chocolate in the shops, and then I'll be all over it like a pack of wolves.

I usually spend every-other Valentine's day in a relationship so I can honestly say that it's just a negligible event for me from both sides of the experience. My last Valentine's was spent 300 miles away from my girlfriend then who hated Valentine's Day, but still cried because I didn't try and make a big deal out of it when she asked me not to. The year before that I had a movie-night with friends and we had a great time.

Valentine's Day has not particularly convinced me it's worth it, to be honest. I don't hate the day, it's just like any other day except there are more ways to screw it up with your partner.

Another year, another valentines thread. I have to admit, I'd forgotten about it, and thought the world was scheduled to end or something.

I don't tend to bother with valentine's day as a whole, even though I'm in a relationship. We tend to buy each other gifts as and when we spot something we know the other will like, sometimes it coincides with valentines, but mostly not. I don't see it as anything special really, sure I'll take advantage of special offers. I know some singletons will be moping and assuming I don't care because I'm with someone. Perhaps I'm with someone because I've never moped about it and I've never bothered about meaningless dates. But whatever it's another money printing event with no other purpose, I'll work, then go home, play 360 and then call my bf and rant about my day at work probably. Then I might make a cuddly robot out of denim.

Call me soppy, but I'm going to the cinema with the girl I have a crush on and some of our friends, and you can guess why I chose valentines. Otherwise, I agree on the gaming.

I'll be treating it like a normal day, laughing at those cursed with human contact.

I'll ask the girl I like out. Again. She says she doesn't really like to date people and that she's happy being single, but I know two people who like her: a red haired guy named Brayden and a pot-headed douchey CoD fanboy named Austin, and both of them are assholes, but apparentely they're both better than me because every day I see Austin trying to what i perceive to be flirting with her, and Brayden has tried to ask her out like 15 times in the last week, on one occasion I even beat the shit out of him. I'd rather die than give up on this girl. Her name is Ciera and she's the only girl i've ever met that i've felt this way about. I don't care about anyone in the world more. I'd give up everything I own for one day, ONE DAY, with her. But she'll probably end up going out with Austin anyway because everyone thinks he's awesome. This same person knocked on my apartment door at 5:00 in the morning to yell "Battlefailed!!!!! COD dominates all!" to my face on tuesday (i like battlefield). He left when I threatened to throw a chair at him.

I'm gonna ask out the girl I like. I'm feeling really nervous D:

Video games

Oh wait, I've got a big college assignment due soon after the 14th

Video games

Avoid people by playing my brother's Xbox seeing as he'll probably be out. Or even do some work for once.

Same thing I do every day, play moar video games...

I'm gonna go to classes and sit there doing what I normally do in my classes (doodle a bunch and take some notes).

Oh and then I'll go home and probably work on a new Magic deck to use at FNM.

Was planning on channeling all my hatred and angst towards Valentine's day into my writing...that usually works ahahah

I'll be flying to Morocco. Yeah, i'm just that dedicated.

I'll be "enjoying" the longest dry spell of my admittedly short life. 2 years... Man I need to find a girlfriend, shame the people I like see me as a friend, but oh well. I'll be 21 next month and then I can go out and try the bar scene.
