Valentine's Day can be tough on an older girl without a boyfriend.

OSD will be 20 in four months. This year, she has a bf for valentines day. He's treats her well and is respectful to her and to us. We like this young man, but we don't lead on too much. :0) If she didn't have a bf, I think I'd remind her that all things happen in their own time and she has lots of time to have valentine days with a special someone. Then I'd be sure we all did something fun together that didn't involve too much mushy stuff. :0)

OSD used to do that in HS too. I think it's sweet that your DH gets something for your DD! DH and I do this as well. It is a great day to remind someone why you love them! I hope you all enjoy your day!!

She is 17 and has never had a boyfriend. She is too busy. I always get the kids a few little things and dh as well. We never go to crazy, but it is nice to get a few treats.

I'm glad Lizzy had a good day! OSD broke up with her bf on vday. :0( poor thing! I'm actually really proud of her! He's making some really bad life decisions and she will not put her college and sports in jepordy for him. It was not easy for her! (she really likes this guy) But she's doing okay with it.

Glad that she made the responsible decision and picked the good stuff over the guy!

I have to admit that these are the times I give a sigh of relief that some things are sticking with her. She's still talking to him and while I can't say I'm thrilled, she will have to work this out for herself. I'm hear to listen and advise when it's ok. This guy seems like a good guy. I think he's feeling lost right now and just needs to work through it. So we will see. OSD likes drama a bit too much still, but at least it is a little bit better.
