I am going to bring about 10 red roses to the Real McCoy and hand them out to hot girls and wish them a Happy Valentines day!

Going to Warsaw for visa renewal, but my wife is coming with me and we're staying at the Hyatt. Very elegant restaurant there, and I got us reservations for their Valentine's Day "romantic dinner" special.

Having only 20 steps and an elevator ride between the restaurant and our hotel room pretty much takes care of romantic atmosphere for me, though, as well as the slinky little sump'n-sump'n I intend to pick up from Dikaya Orkhideya on the way home from work tonight. Shame to pay so much for something worn so little, though. :D

My penny on this is - if you need a special day to show someone you love them you are indeed in need of help.

Whole Valentines thing gets my goat I am afraid ..not trying to be a kill joy or anti love. But why the hell do you need to be reminded by advertisments to be nice to the one you love ? Why not suprise them at another time of year or when they least expect it ? When they need cheering up ?

Also guys this is supposed to be a two way street - I see no post's from ladies - what should I get my man this year.

You are missing the point of Valentine's Day. It is not meant for people who are already together. The actual idea is to send cards to people you fancy with cryptic clues so they can guess who sent the card. It's a way of getting together, or showing your love/lust/desire for someone to whom otherwise you might not speak. It's a game.

Okay, here's a response from a female (I'll leave the "lady" designation alone...). Being 6,000 miles from my sweetie takes the fun out of the holiday, so I sent him the next best thing - a silver-plated universal remote control.

I am taking my lady to an hotel in West Somerset. It's one of our favourite spots, and has just been refurbished.

The restaurant now looks really good and has a lovely view over sea and town.

On Sunday we will go for a long walk on Exmoor or the Quantock Hills looking for deer.

She doesn't know all this yet.......

I would trade this though for a weekend in Moscow with her anytime !!

Valentines is made for companies to make money-to boost up their business. Isn't it?

I'm going out in Warsaw to paint the town.

But not before lighting a candle for a certain someone.

Yada yada yada....yes, Valentine's = big business....no, one day shouldn't make me love my wife any more than usual....yes, we should all love and hug and sing Kumbaya every day of the year....but that doesn't diminish by a single amu your significant (female) others' expectation that you do something special for them on Valentine's Day.

On the other hand, if it is not Valentine's day and you see a man in a flower shop, you can probably start up a conversation with him just by asking, 'What did you do?'

What should I do with those shining diamond drops and platinum necklaces I 've got for Valentine days over last 10 years from my sweetie??

Err, sorry don't wanna be blamed for that one. Shall we say that it's for all people in love, requited or otherwise.

Seeing there's a touch of sarcasm from Alethea about Valentines Day / Gifts, the urge to respond a little has awakened in me..!!

Giving Diamonds : what does that really mean ? To me that is true commercialism / greed / capitalism. You don't have to have a heart or be in love to do that. Maybe it's a way to "buy" love, affection or loyalty.......

To be with someone and speak or write a personal message of love really means something (to guys and gals). And for most of us that has 1 million times more value than some ice ( that can be hawked off some day).

Have a good one everybody.

Valentine's day is just another holiday invented by women to torture men with. You see she makes out good no matter what we do. If we buy her gifts, flowers, a card, candy (all of which magically go up in price around that time and then mysteriously drop in price after) then she wins by being on the receiving end of a "romantic" frenzy of gift giving. If we forget then we must spend the next three months making up for it actively, she can use it to win every argument for the next year and she has something to tell her friends. If she wants to get rid of us she can use it as an excuse, if you forget Valentine's day you are after all worthy of the very worst dumping that she can dish out.

Now that I have made my views on this reddest of all holidays let me go a step further and point out that true romance is not or should not be obligatory. Ladies, is it more romantic to receive flowers on Valentine's day when it is expected, required, or is it more romantic when he brings them home for no other reason than he was thinking of you and overwhelmed by feelings of love he stopped to buy you a token of his love? Is it more romantic to come home to find he has strewn the room with rose petals, prepared a nice hot bath by candlelight for you, scrubs your back and massages your feet, takes you to dinner at your favorite restaurant, a nice walk after while holding hands with you? My point is romance and spontaneity go hand-in-hand. How can you be spontaneous on a day when it is required of you to do these things. At best we can meet your expectations, at worse we will disappoint you. The very fact that you have expectations for that day kills any chances of spontaneity.

I guess that there are some women, were not for Valentine's day, would get none of those romantic things. What they need is another man not a holiday.

Tulrin, you are absolutely right (and an incurable romantic, it appears!) but some men do need a "whack upside the head" once in awhile. A young friend of mine was seriously involved with a terrific girl, but he had no clue about romance. His idea of a Valentine's gift was an electric fondue pot. The women in the office, once we recovered from hysterical laughter, pointed out that a small appliance would not hit the right note and would more likely hit his head. He took our advice, started thinking about what would make her happy, and they were married shortly thereafter.

On the other hand, my guy has always been the type to realize when I've had a hard day and will take charge of getting dinner and sorting the kids out so I can relax. That's the sort of thing that really matters in a relationship and makes it last.

Good of you Wanderer. glad you didn't say you going to take the Missus to see the Rovers, you do have a heart then after all! :D

Sunday Morning up on the Qauntocks (spelling) you can't beat it and they've a nice breakfast cafe on the only road route I've been up there by.

The City connection of my family lives in Burnham On Sea that's how I come to go up there.

My day has been wasted under the duvet and trying to free my overloaded PM Box, with all those Valentine Messages from King Bobby No mates Robert! ;)

I need a nice Wolfette to be romantic with, extra Chappie today I reckon! :p

Wolf - I couldn't take the Mrs to watch the Gas (lost 3-0 at home yesterday anyway).........
The reason being we ALWAYS lose when she comes to a match (eg Wembley twice, Northampton home game on Boxing Day).

BTW my spelling is not too bad - typing skills are something else....

Burnham on Sea, now there's a place...boy oh boy

As a kid we used to sometimes go on the beach there to give our dog a good run.

See ya
