    so, what are you getting for that special someone?

    i'll be getting all of the "safe" gifts: flowers, perfume, lotions, bath stuff, maybe some jewelery, etc...

    and then i had (what i think is) a good idea. my girlfriend likes sleeping on my arm, because she likes seeing the tattoo i have on my forearm when she goes to bed and wakes up, she says it makes her feel safe. we don't live together (yet) so i made a design with my tattoo, and i'm having it printed onto a pillowcase...

    i think it's kind of thoughtful anyway.

    so, i thought this would be a nice place to talk about what you're getting for your significant other, or maybe just cool gifts you've gotten from year's past, and maybe to give other posters some good ideas.

    Last Valentine's Day, some crazy Mexican hit me. He had a huge SUV, I had my little Sentra. Guess who won?

    Romantic.

    As long as that doesn't happen this year, I'll be happy. ------>:)

    I hate Valentine's Day, and why is there one day out of the year dedicated to guys pretending to be nice to get laid?

    I usually try to do something creative and romantic. One year I covered Spoons' entire dorm room in red paper hearts that took me like, 3 weeks to cut out :csad: I've also made "coupon books," and bought pink champagne glasses. I can't remember if it was for V-Day or an anniversary, but I bought one of those "Guess how much I love you?" books, and typed, printed, and cut out our names and pasted them over the names of the characters in the book.

    I'm not sure what we'll do for Valentine's day. It usually just passes us by with nothing else but exchanging cards.

    I would like to get my husband a new silver ring though. He has his nice gold wedding ring but he doesn't wear it to work because he works with his hands and fears getting it caught on something and having to have it cut off (it's an expensive ring). He did have a silver one he wore to work but it got bent.

    So, hopefully I'll find him a nice silver one he can wear to work.

    Valentines day= 2nd annual strip club for singles night.

    Me and my friends go to the shadiest strip club possible and get black out drunk to forget that another year has passed with out that "special someone"

    except, i might have a girlfriend by valentines, but i want to do the strip club thing anyway. We are suppost to go to this place down by thesports arena called girls girls girls in san diego. It looks shady as hell.

    V-day is alright, I always send flowers to my wifes work and then take her out to some fancy place for dinner. I, also, get her a gift and get a gift she can wear for me (she enjoys it and I don't get anything trashy). Then she usually get me something as well, like something for my inner geek or golf related.

    I have no "special someone" in my life so therefore Valentine's Day is useless to me, but I do have to work that day which means' I'm probably gonna have to deal with couples all day.

    My philosophy is that you shouldn't use one day to express your affection for loved ones, but all 365 days of the year. Valentine's Day is just another excuse to make Greeting Card companies rich.

    My wife got me a matching chain for kinda of the same reason. I wear my ring during work, my job is pretty white-collar, but for other hands on activities (golf, softball, volleyball) I put my ring on the chain.

    Not to mention the prick Debeers diamond monopoly.
    Diamonds are f'ing worthless!
    WORTHLESS!
    They just cause death and misery abroad.

    Shouldn't be a day where you make up for being a crappy lover.

    Are you in a relationship? Because usaully that doens't fly with the fairer sex. It's all well and good to be Mr. Perfect everyday, but if you don't think you'll have ramp it up on V-day you're kidding yourself.

    You don't have to break the bank or by diamonds, just do something. If you have disdain for Hallmark don't get a card. Is it really that big of a deal, especially since you will probably get a little loving if you make any effort at all.

    Beside if you're a crappy lover, you got bigger problems than showing a pulse on that one day.

    I personally hate diamonds because of all he blood shed for their retrieval. If and when I find mysignificant other I want him to get me engagement and wedding rings with my birthstone, Blue Zircon, in them instead of diamonds.

    i never understood the whole "let's go out for a fancy dinner" thing.

    i just can't see paying $200 for a decent meal and an overpriced bottle of wine. call me cheap, but still.

    Considering I'm a woman (I thought my title Queen of Monsters would clue you in.) no I do not prefer the fairer sex. I'm in the market for a nice looking guy though.

    Heck, I'd be happy if I were taken out to our local Chinese Buffet for dinner. All that matters to me is a nice looking guy with the gift of gab and a great, funny personality. That's worth more than all the roses, candies and $200 dollar meals, a guy who is just as dedicated to me as I am of him.

    Most people find that philosophy of mine amazing because I'm a woman and we're supposed to badger our guys about this one day. If I need to beg for attention just one day out of the year then there's something wrong with my relationship I say.
