I can't imagine taking Valentine's Day that seriously. There's no glaring message I say flashing "HA HA! You're alone!" All I see are a lot of stores wanting me to spend my money on cheap chocolate and other crap.

The only time I ever really feel excluded as far as "couples" things go is the free trips for Time-shares. Not that I want a time share, mind you. But I think it's awfully discriminatory to say I have to have a spouse or live-in partner with me for those things as if I couldn't afford a time-share without one. It's the PRINCIPLE of it, though, not that I get all lonely and sad.

I bet its just because the think a couple will be less likely to get bored and possible stop paying or whatever. What the heck happens in the case of divorce or breakup?

I think it's because they divide and conquer and they think 2 pockets for one household they can pick.

Lets pretend (and practice, lots and lots of practice) on being a couple, then we can both go!

I challenge LW1 to give Texas a good name by
volunteering at the Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Humane Society, Hospitality House, Fisher House, Veterans Home, or another worth while organization. Come on down.

LW1: Oh for F sake. "Valentine's Day" is nothing more than a HALLMARK HOLIDAY. Any one who is boo-hoo-hooing on Feb. 14 because they don't have a "sweetheart" needs to GROW THE F UP.

LW2 - not that i chewed an awful lot, but when i had a cuticle or hangnail, i'd try to "clean it up"... then i had $5K of dental work done on my front teteth and i can't get a good grip on domething like a hangnail anymore. i feel like a little old lady for all the emery boards and nail nippers i have stashed all over, but my nails look better.
