V-day plans?

I'd like to know two things from each of you: first, how long your current relationship has lasted, and second, what your plans are for Valentine's day (or, if you are reading this after the 14th, what you did).

1. 21 years.
2. We exchange cards, that's it. Valentine's day is too close to Christmas and my birthday to require another gift-giving holiday. "Just cards" was her idea many years ago.

2. we dont really celebrate v-day other than I usually try to make an extra nice dinner. We see no reason to pay money for stuff just cause its Feb 14th, when we celebrate our love throughout the entire year. It took our first year together for Dave to really understand I had no wish for flowers, gifts, cards on this day (and that I'd kick his ass for spending money on flowers that were inflated in price for one stupid day). We buy or make "just because I love you cards" for each other all the time anyway...no need to do it because of a designated day.

1. together 4.5 years, married 3.75 years.
2. Our first Valentine's Day (2004) I was in white phase of Basic Training, lol. The next year I think we went to dinner and a movie. In 2006 our son was tiny so I think xeph gave me a rose and let me sleep in (exactly what I wanted!). Last year and this year he's deployed, so nothing again. I think he still managed to send me flowers last year, though, and he says he has something "coming for [me]" today. *excited*

Next year we'll have to have a Super Duper Huge Valentine's Day Extravaganza to make up for all the shitty ones we've had. That should be fun

Emotionally involved for 3 years, "together" together for about 6 months.

I made a DELICIOUS pecan pie for him last night... and got a small token necklace this morning. Nothing fancy at all... we're still in that "kiss all day long" stage

1. Coming up on 4 years in April, woo-hoo!!

2. It's a huge relief to spend this V-Day in Iceland, where globalization has not yet overwhelmed the shops with tons of cheap red/pink shit made in China. There's also a noticeable lack of a greeting card industry here... surprised Hallmark hasn't made it here yet. That said, I still have a little soft spot for my American holidays (very little, but I can't ignore it), so I still like to do something just a bit special on those days.

So we decided to make some "molten lava cakes" from scratch, to make together at home after a dinner/movie (the latter is not that rare for us, since ktspktsp gets free movie passes through work). You know, the kind of little chocolate cakes that have almost liquid chocolate spilling out from the inside, when you take 'em out of the oven? Mmm, sooooo good... and eaten with strawberries and pears, it should put us over the top for a very comfy, cozy evening. And that's enough for me!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that Feb 14th is also the anniversary date (since 3 years ago) when ktspktsp's country started going to shit again, thanks to Hariri being blown up. So that's another motivation for us to keep it relatively subdued, at least until things start to get back to normal in Lebanon...

2. We went out to eat Tuesday. I gave him a rose and a card last night. He usually gets me flowers, but the flower shop in town (very, very small town) closed down, so I don't know if he'll do that this year. And that's okay with me.

1. 2.5 years (wow, where did the time go)
2. I have to work, so we're just going to get a pizza (heart-shaped) and relax at home. Traditionally, I get him underwear for Valentine's Day, so I picked up a pair of novelty boxers with Stewie from Family Guy as Cupid, and a chess set (the one we had is missing pieces). I also got him a card that says: "I like my Valentines like I like my martinis...Dirty." It got a chuckle.

3 years long distance, roughly a year and a half of living in the same city. Plans? We both think V-Day is a huge joke, not worth celebrating.

If you need a special holiday to show your affection for the person you're with, you're doing it wrong.

Lousy worthless corporate holiday.

i gave her flowers two weeks ago when she had a rough day at work. that means way more doing it on this day.

9 months, and she's away at school, so WE didn't do anything.

However, being one of the most sexually perverse people my friends have ever encountered, my buddy Jim invited me on as a special guest for the college radio station, as this week was "sexual awareness week." All in all I made out with two pieces of pizza, two things of lube, and 3 dozen condoms. Like I ever use them anyways.

Oh, I fell in love with this girls chest who sat across from me for part of the evening though. So I guess that's sort of romantic?

The internet is your friend! Do a search for them and you'll find tons of recipes (aka chocolate fondant). Unfortunately we left ours in a little too long, so they turned out more cakey than molten, but still VERY YUMMY and fun to make together. I'm eating one for breakfast right now.

They are dead easy to make... and definitely should be undercooked. The other thing that's easy is chocolate mousse and chocolate souffle...

By the way... my plans for this evening are now shot. So it looks like we will be doing something when we get around to it.

We've been going out for almost 5 years (getting married in November ).

We went out for dinner at our new favourite Chinese restaurant. Had way too much to eat, and were way too full and tired afterwards to even think about the sex we had planned.

I'll make up for it tonight though.

i hate the disposable crap that comes with the guilt and competition of Valentine's Day and he respects that. Plus, he had to work at 11pm. So we had falafel wrap, gyro, hummus and kibbe in the kitchen standing up. Apparently, it's time for a nice dinner so he's taking me to Cantina Laredo on Saturday with one of the last of our friends... the cool one.

Kibbe and hummus would have made our V-Day PERFECT. God, I love that stuff... did you make it yourselves, or order from somewhere? Luckyyyyy!!!

33 years. I know, that's kind of sick.

Figured out long ago that I can't buy anything for her that she really likes unless she is actually there. So I try to do other things. I was on a business trip for V-Day so I left lot's of post it notes in different places. Maybe I'll get her a bottle of Channel #5 next month when it's not near V-Day. In fact, we no longer even do Christmas or birthdays. Byt somehow it works and I wouldn't change a thing - well - almost.
