I plan on pretending it's not Valentines Day.

This is one of the funniest OTSs in a while! Part of our plans include watching Say Anything. I've never seen it (so I need to correct that cultural deficiency) and it's one of the few romances that my husband actually likes.

I plan to sit in Allen Field house, show my support to the girl basketball team, and dream of dating a dance squad member...Love from a far, far less painful...

We take both of our daughters to all three of their great grandma's houses to deliver flowers and cookies. Two of the great grandmothers are widows and the other is single so we just try to brighten their Valentines Days. We treat it like just another day but we know that for the people that don't have someone to share it with, it's a hard holiday. We started this tradition when we had our oldest and couldn't find a babysitter for Valentines Day. Now we look forward to it every year.

"Does a jug of Free State beer say, “I care”?"You bet your @ss it does!!I'd better get this in lieu of flowers. Or maybe I will buy it for the better half. A growler costs far less than a dozen roses.

I plan on taking my wife down to the P&L district for cocktails at the bar in the President Hotel, and then over to the Bristol for dinner.Belts are tight, but it is events like this that help keep the romance alive.

"If you want to know about women, take my job, please."Is that a misquote of Rodney Dangerfield?and O-Bob FTW.

commentator ... much like I have a problem with women who put too much importance into expensive weddings, I'd have a problem with a woman who puts that much importance in Valentine's Day. If I were involved with a woman who really took offense at my downplaying Valentine's day, I'd give serious consideration to no longer being involved with that woman.Remember: just as there are men who get into the whole Valentine's Day fuss, there are women who don't really care that much.

A romantic 3 day getaway to Eureka Springs...I win!

Valentine's Day hurts too much if I remember it in terms of the past adult men in my life.I plan to buy my two sons each a small stuffed toy for the day. Bought my 20 yr. old a toy hamster which sings "It's Raining Men." Gonna put a note in with it saying, "Daughter, it's raining men, so don't settle for the drip!!"

My plans involve sitting alone in the dark with a handle of captain morgan. Or maybe svedka. Depends on how depressing the day is.
