Valentine's Day 2002: What are you planning or what was done for you?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I personally will be celebrating my 6th "Singles Awareness Day" in a row alone, thank you. <img src="graemlins/embarrassed.gif" border="0" alt="[Embarrassed]" />

But hopefully you're having better luck. What do you plan on doing for your special one, or what will be/has been done for you?

And please, no "Valentine's Day is too overcommercialized" type posts. We know it is, but many still celebrate it; and I'd like to find out here how our AI cohorts will be honoring the day.

EDIT: Added "in a row" to clarify.

Sorry. Feel with you. I´m doing the same (although not the 6th). I will have some friends over for lunch but it has nothing to do with Valentine (or rather: you never know <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

I am sorry for you Scott, Italians and french people have many common roots !

Are you kidding? The Italians had to run down that long boot shaped peninsula to get away

And the Germans had to go to Germany to get a way. The Dutch would rather live on the bottom of a drained lake than in France

So am I.

I have this dream of going to work for this place.

Great place. I got to meet some of the people there once. They did some work I didn't think was possible.

Damn, came in here looking for some ideas. It's me and my b/f's third valentines day together, and while I classify it as a worthless "hallmark holiday" through and through, I still like to do something special every year, unfortunately, I'm plum out of ideas this time 'round. I do have something big planned for our anniversary in a month, though.

any ideas, or things you've done in the past? please, a little help...

ciao,

michael

Well the most important thing is to remember that there is a valentine days tomorrow. The important is to do something special for these day, but there is no need to do magical event.
for me , i think i must find some flowers for my wife, or she'll get angry ...

Sweetest Day is 100% useless. It's a total fabrication. At least there was a Saint Valentine.

Horrible? It's a perfeclty natural act which one should carry out as much as one possibly can. Like twice a day <img src="graemlins/embarrassed.gif" border="0" alt="[Embarrassed]" />

Try a nice candle light picnic on the beach or something with strawberries and champagne. Gay guys like that. Ummm a friend told me.

A lovely suggestion, and I should think that anyone with a sense for the romantic would enjoy that, not just us queers. though he doesn't drink, and I don't like champagne anyway.

ciao,

Scadboy!

Are there any especially gay Valentines activities? Something completely un-hetero? Maybe switching up the batting order? Sorry! But you gotta admitt, that just isn't gonna happen in to many hetero couplings, though I did hear this story once involving... well, role play. Serious, homo-jibes aside, in a social sense, any unique gay permutations of this little love festival.

Lets see...school until 2:50, go home, work on the seminar i have to present on friday (i'm procrastinating from doing it by posting here on AI). Then i have cheerleading practice from 5:30-8 (see the website in my signature). I will come home, and continue to work on the seminar until it is ready. Fun stuff.

I'm single this year too, however over the past week things with my ex have been getting better. We broke up a little less than a year ago, but as of now i'm not sure where things will lead. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Looks like it's a bottle of wine and a DVD for me.

Unless someone in the NYC area doesn't mind being seen out with a bald chick?

Why are you bald? I would think that in NYC you'd find many takers.

Chemotherapy has temporarily taken away my hair.

I can thoroughly recommend the treatment to girls who want to lose weight and avoid painful bikini waxing.

I'm pretty lucky -- I have a great, affectionate girlfriend who doesn't go in for this kind of traditional stuff. She believes, like I do, that people in relationships ought to be pleasant to each other, and treat the relationship as valuable, more than one day out of the year.

I honestly believe that most people treat Valentine's Day as a contest to see who has the best story to tell in the office the next day.

"When I drove up, my Frank, he had set out sixty-dozen red roses and a fifty pound box of chocolates on the table. He's so sweet!"

"Oh yeah, well when I walked into the house, Marvin had shaved his entire body and painted himself red with white hearts all over, and he was dancing around the room with a golden harp, strumming it and singing Michael Bolton songs. He loves me so much!"

"I've got you both beat. Darling Willie gave me a diamond ring that he says cost him sixteen thousand dollars. That's a thousand dollars for each year we've been together. Isn't that sweet?"

Blech.

I have a friend that went throught that. He said he looked 12 years old down there He didn't lose the hair on his head so much though. It got patchy but after a hair cut he looked rather normal.

Good luck with the treatment.

That's what she's TOLD you. She's telling her friends what a jerk you are for not getting her anything.

You're probably right. And her other boyfriend probably got her something really great!

Someone out there could say that December 2nd is now "Sweetheart's Day" and girls will expect flowers.

They can't help it, they're inherently insane.

Eh Valentine's Day?

Im spending it with a group of guys and marching over to some dirt jumps over by my house and building some catwalks. (So far 12 feet high, and 40 feet long.)

I'm trying to take that post in the most positive light possible...

As much as I hate to admit it, the fact that this is our third valentines in a row and we're still together makes us abit of an oddity among our gay friends. being in college, at art school no less, there aren't that many couples that've made it this far and stuck together.

One of our friends broke up with his b/f of nearly a year just this past weekend, caught him cheating on him the week before valentines, what a prick. most of our other gay friends are perpetually single, though, come to think of it, so are our straight friends....

hmmm, maybe we're not that weird afterall.

Though I do know that a bunch of our single friends got together to drink and bitch about how much guys suck, and we, not too suprisingly, weren't invited.

we ended up exhanging gifts, going out to dinner, and doing the usual completely un-hetero thing three times today, woo-hoo.

As far as the "batting order" as you so bluntly put it, there seems to be this misconception among straight people that this sort of thing is set in stone. In our case, it has always pretty much depended on who is in what sort of a mood. I do sometime feel sorry that straight people don't enjoy such a variety of possible experiences.

hope everyone's v-day was as pleasant and tiring as mine, goodnight

Yeah you're so right! I've had trouble explaining this very thing to straight people. When I have a b/f I'm always being asked "So, who's Arthur and who's Martha?"

She's leaving for Paris today. Going to be gone for a year. (That's how long her work permit is for.) I'll probably go over there to visit. That's what I'm thinking now. I don't know. I dialed down the Valentine's Day thing but at the last minute I capitulated. Something will be waiting for her in France. Nothing's going to come of this.
