If Valentine's Day takes place in your part of the world, what are the advantages of spending Valentine's Day (or evening) on your own :D

Can't say, for sure, 'cause I have a date! :banana: :lol:
Good to hear it -- have a happy V-day! :D

I may have to spend it on my own since it's a Monday this year. Advantage? Not putting on any more weight from wining and dining? :roll: Been doing too much of it recently...

My dance clubs are organizing a VD dance that weekend (Friday), and hopefully we'll have a few people show up then and the usual monthly ballroom social on Saturday.

Unfortunately I'll be out of town working, so I won't get to be DJ that night. I may have dinner out with a friend when all is done that Sunday, but just it's just as well.

I am going to be out of town, Feb 11 to the 15th. With my dh. Frankly, as syrupy (Ick) as it sounds, I can't imagine anything good about a Valentines Day alone since I married him.

you realize how this could be taken out of context?...although nowadays it would be an STD dance.

and for the advantages. it's better to be alone than wish you were alone.

The only advantage I can think of is not being dissappointed when your SO announces that Valentines Day is a load of commercialised c**p and he's not going to buy into it.

Sorry, been there before, even though I do agree to a certain degree. If you are with someone they should at least acknowledge the day even if they don't believe in it.

I spend Val's day cooped up in my house and only go out if I have to (work, etc) because I can't stand all the lovey dovey couples around the place. I used to buy the paper and read the Val's Day messages that people put in there, but I can't stand even doing that anymore. Spent waaaayy too many by myself. :?

You alone!! Some people are missing out if they haven't snared you yet!

Gee, "VD" is kind of a weird acronym for the day of love, isn't it????

I haven't been alone for V Day (a little more palatable) in a long time, and while I don't think being alone is the worst thing in the world, it's the one day when it's REALLY apparent you're alone. I don't think I'd like it much. My single cousin goes into a depression just about every Christmas and Valentine's Day. I keep trying to tell her the "grass is always greener," but I'm afraid she doesn't buy into it.

Oh Dancin_feet, this sounds really bad. :( Have you ever had a guy treat you right on Valentine's Day? I hope so.

To me Valentine's day is a day to express your appreciation of the one you truelly love. Now ... don't get me wrong, I like to do that on other days, too, and surprise a SO with a quick call while her are at work just to tell them I love her. But Valentine's Day should be special, too.

For my last SO, I put together a small basket of little gifts like a scented body lotion she loved, a gift book where she could pick out a piece of jewelery to her style, and a little box of special chocolates, etc. Then I arranged with the restauraunt to bring the basket of gifts to the table after we finished ordering so she could unwrap the gifts while we waited for our food! You should have seen all the appreciative looks and smiles, and heard the comments we got from other tables. It was a very nice evening. :D

I'm not sure I'll go to all of that for you, because we aren't SOs, but perhaps I'll send you something nice anyway, and at least a card. ;)

NO, but then I guess that's why I'm single, eh? :?
Oh what a bummer. :( I'm definitely sending you something for Valentine's Day. You cheer up ... one of these days there will be a guy who sweeps you off your feet, and does it the right way. :D

Ok ... anybody want to contribute to the Fly DP to Austrailia Fund? ;)

That just about sums up my previous V-Days. Not only was my SO totally not into it, it also happened to be his parents' wedding anniversary (obviously they were more romantic than him), so we spent every V-Day celebrating them being together rather than us being together. :? Oh well, that's in the past.
