Ah, Wikipedia explains why you've never heard of it.
"Sweetest Day is a holiday celebrated primarily in the Great Lakes region, and parts of the Northeast United States, on the third Saturday in October.[1] Sweetest Day has also been referred to as a "concocted promotion" created by the candy industry solely to increase sales of sweets.[2] It is also a day to bestow romantic deeds or expressions."
Around here, it seems to be mostly celebrated by black folks. I had never heard of it either until recently. Better marketing, I guess.
Didn't know that. Southerners and westerners don't have that crappy holiday? Lucky bass terds

We sure don't. I hadn't heard of it until just now. You learn something new every day.

Benevolent parents are short sighted .Some people need to be confined for their own good and for the safety of others. If the son were not labeled mentally ill, we would all say the LW is suffering severe abide. IMO you don't get a pass because you are labeled mentally ill and can't control what you do..
Agreed.
And it seems like he might have some control, like controlling an avoidance to medication.
She's being physically abused. Life is not meant for that. He will be institutionalized or in jail...she won't live forever--think of setting him up for the future.

2: His point is right but to hurt his gf because he can't pony up 50 cents for a Dollar Tree card is wrong.

I agree and while I consider Valentines Day and Sweetest day "Hallmark" holidays, it's important to her, and it doesn't matter how he treats her the other 364 days of the year, she would like some type of Valentines Day acknowledgement. He can give her SOMETHING.

LW2: You seem to be unhappy with how your boyfriend treats you every day, not just Valentine's Day.

Right?
I mean, isn't a healthy relationship one where you try to focus more on making your partner happy than always thinking me, me, me? Yes, to a degree--don't get me wrong, but he seems like he's refusing to even do something he knows makes her happy.

Listen, we all do things we don't like. But it makes someone we care about happy, so we do it. It's about THEIR happiness. Most girls love flowers. I LOVE them but guys think it's silly because they die soon. I get the sentiment but grab a tiny darn flower from the gas station for no reason and you have a happy Chel on your hands. It's a win-win.

I grew up in the NE and never heard of it, either. Sounds like Valentine's Day in the fall. Stupid.
