QOTW Valentine's Day: love it or hate it?
Sat, 02-11-2012 - 3:22am

So, here we are again, almost to the most anticipated or dreaded "holiday" of the year, and I find myself wondering how people really feel about it.

So, do you love it or hate it and why???

I'll start. When I was 6, I loved it, because, hey, free chocolate and cards! Now, after being married for 15 years? I HATE it! My DH is a total moron when it comes to gifts, despite my many, many years of suggestions and not so suggestive "demands." Still, I get a box of cheap chocolate from Wal-Mart and a few cards picked out frantically that day. One year, he decided to plant me a rose garden, but that was 4 years ago, and he's never bought a rose bush. And last year? So sad, he was working in FL and left me some cash in our joint account to buy myself something. And he has the nerve to say I'M not romantic!?! Soooo...... No hope for this year, either. Sigh.

I hate it honestly!

One time an ex-b/f broke up with me on Valentines...long story.

I buy my kids something but my ex-husband wasn't very Romantic either.

It just sucks big-time!!!
