    I got a card. I got the ultimatum. No flowers, no candy, no jewelry. After 28 years of marriage I have learned to not to question it.

    Got her a ring from a local jeweler - handmade silver overlay with a Citrine stone. Bought a Mystic Topaz with gold bezel and sterling ring for her BD, same jeweler.

    Lotion and flowers for your sweetie. Sex toy is probably for yourself?

    The sex toy is for me to use on her. Let your imaginations wander, but that's all you will get out of me. I have lived with 5 different women over my lifetime and they all liked them.

    I'll file that away in the memory banks. :ponder:

    B.o.T. - I took her half dozen watches and had fresh batteries put in each one. 6 watches and none of them working. Would she tell Me ? Hell , No, Just seen one not running and went to check her others - dead as door nails.
    She runs on her own time anyway. The rest of the world just has to get over it.

    Got my wife a card and Valentine with chocolates. She will also receive a surprise at work, when the florist makes a delivery.

    Read where March and August are the months for couples to file for divorce. I guess Valentines Day does not work out for everybody!

    She got a nice card and a little heart shaped vanilla cake. The card is what impressed her most.

    Oh Gawd, Do we have to do this every fricken year? Hallmark needs to STFU.

    February is an expensive month for hammerhead. Valentine's day, grand daughter's birthday, wives birthday one day after another. Home owners insurance due at end of month. Went up again this year.

    As always, she will get a dozen long stem roses delivered and dinner out. Our favorite Italian restaurant closed so not sure where we will dine. She tried making me truffles this year. Wasn't a complete success but they taste good.

    Oh crap, did I miss another day that I'm supposed to waste money on? I'm on wife #3, this one is still here after 28 years and is super low maintenance. Doesn't like flowers, jewelry, and fancy diners. She does like good books and intelligent conversation though.

    Guys, a good woman does not need or expect any acknowledgement of the holiday other than your continued presence in her life and maybe a "Happy Valentine's Day" utterance from yourself. It's a fake holiday anyway and I had to work until 8PM . Ain't nobody got time for nonsense.

    Nothing. We both agreed not to celebrate it, and think it's a farce of a "holiday".

    We don't succumb to the marketing bullcrap. I love her and show it 365 days a year and she treats me the same way every day! We don't need no stinkin' Valentines Day badges!!

    I got to unexpectedly schlep heavy fine furniture in a Uhaul Box truck on the windiest roads in all of Arkansas for a dimwitted dungeon playing inconsiderate zomboid who's profound and epic journey of thoughtless first class buffoonery found me arriving home at 3:30 AM without so much as a scent of feminine presence. Cold dry weather here these days.

    I was single from 22 till 46, so don't fret, as you get older your field exponentially increases :p Just don't make the mistake of severely limiting yourself by entering into a contract with another one before you have adequately sampled that ever enlarging field.

    You know; all things come to those with patience.
