Some wives dont require roses or jewelry or extravagant gifts.

My wife is happy to receive a card every year, but I still go out and buy her things like some lingerie or dvd's. One year I was able to find a jewelry box that her mom had sold at a garage sale long ago. She had told me about how she was at the Chicago Dance school for ballet and her mom sold her favorite jewelry box. I so happened to remember the story and had been extremely lucky to find one just like it at a flea market. I earned so many bonus points for that, that I'll never go into the so-called enzoner doghouse.

Yes, yes it is. Tread carefully... The key word in her phrase is "need". She wants you to want to want...errr...you know what I mean.

Nice.

I don't understand how women complain about guys being shallow, but any guy who didn't pull out the stops on V-day would be in the doghouse for a LONG time. Ridiculous.

I will get her a card, and i am far from shallow anything my family needs they get. I get her roses all the time durning the year for no reason, my wife is the greatest.

Historically, the Hallmark-manTax holiday hasn't dinged me for very much.

This year, it was about $40 for some pollen sticks for brideowanian and a pink one for kidowanian.

I had them sent to her work for Maximum Effect. Making other women jealous seems to loosen panty elastic.

Probably (although not that cheap around here). But it's a pain in the ass to carry them on the train (I take public trans into the city) and the weather sucks today. Also, the cheap flowers tend to start dying almost immediately. Plus I'd miss the AWWWWWWWW factor of the wife getting flowers delivered at work and all her co-workers thinking I'm so f#cking wonderful and all. :)

But basically, this is the easiest way to deal with it, and I'm lazy.

Sounds to me like you're lucky if you get to soak it in cider.

So, the boss wasn't cool with you hacking the interweb afterall......

Same here... I've been with Cathy for 3 years now and though I got her something on the first year, she told me that she doesnt care about V-Day and we should just ignore it.

I love her. :D :D :D

Actually I am trying to return to that job.. I resigned from that job to take what i thought would be a good opportunity to switch industry. but it turned out that company was full of donkey manure...

Since i Left on excellent terms with the previous employer (the one i haxored the firewall) I am in the process of getting that job back but its a long process...

Whatever the going price is for a good beer and a steak.
I donít want flowers: Iím allergic
I donít want candy: I donít eat it
I guess this is why I donít mind February 14, or March 14 for that matter.

I'll wager if I had started my line of personalized greeting cards for those times that Hallmark doesn't.....my "Ex girlfriend/wife line" would be filling my pocket today.

Well since Valentines fell in the middle of the week and the roads are kinda crappy, I have managed to put it all off until this weekend. Discounted flowers anyone.

too much;
time, money, thoughts and most years not the right, color, size, or thought.

BTW that one poster, about not getting anything, we tried that one this year, When she handed me a card I said, I thought we weren't doing anything this year, (trip to mexico next week is supposed to be for valentines)

Yup, like a turd in a punchbowl.

Plus she decided we would celebrate it Sat. (I was in Dallas Friday and Sat and she is gone yesterday through this friday) so I had no time to do anything anyway. Fickle woman.
