What did everyone do? I ended up drinking a small keg of Hobgoblin and played indie trivia games on the Xbox. She passed out after nailing a bottle of preseco and I fell asleep listening to The Offspring really loud, apparently.

It's a scam mate. Invented by Hallmark. An absolute sham designed to separate the working man from his hard earned nicker. Hate it, I do. Bloody detest it. Can't stand it. Not one jot.

That said, we did one of those M&S meal deals. Was very nice. Scallops with pea purree followed by beef wellington with rosemary spuds. She was wetter than the Marianas Trench by the time I got her upstairs. Absolutely sopping.

What a load of bollocks valentines day is. Tragic when you see formerly respectable mates making an effort for it.
Always even easier to pull on Valentine's day in a club mind

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
I really can't stand it. Pressure on men to prove themselves through the refined art of spending money.

Me and the wife have never done Valentine's Day in any big way. Partly stems back to the early impoverished student days and it being my birthday next week, so we couldn't afford to have two 'things'.

Ha, my mum and dad did that M&S thing, and had the scallops.

I think most people are aware of its origins and purpose, but most people do something for it usually do I thought I'd ask. Loads of people on my Facebook were saying they were doing nothing, so likely is most of the blokes are in the doghouse today.

Was surprised to see lots of women buying flowers at the florists. Sad when some were definitely buying them for themselves.

I got invited out by two women to go on a pub crawl with them, but I couldn't make it so will arrange to do it another time. So I did eff all once I had my errands ran.

^ That. Working in a Bar is rather amusing on Valentines day, mind.

My first Valentine's Day as a single bloke for 6 years and it was pretty much like any other Saturday. Had a good lie in this week mind as I sacked off the Derby-Reading game, watched a few mates play football up in Doncaster and then went around Town, had a decent night.

Make sure you've got a good friend whose birthday is on the 14th. You get to spend it eating those caterpillar-shaped cakes and talking about his new PJ bottoms and smellies.

Great for me. Spent the entire day eating my mum's chocolates she received from my dad. Top day all round.

I'll never do Valentines day...Becuase, other than the fact I can't bag myself a serious relationship, it's a shit excuse to buy some shit card and flowers.

Never really got into the whole valentines thing, it was a good excuse to get chicks into bed when I was younger. I'm romancing the wife every other night anyways ;)

i went to match with my Grandad. Never been big on the Valentines thing it is overhyped rubbish which gives lasses the chance to show off who has the biggest wethead of a boyfriend. I gave my girlfriend a card and we had a takeaway and that's all.

Social media was a nightmare and well worth avoiding, don't get all the hype about it

Gave her a card and we went out for a curry and pint - after I got back from football. Sorted.

This is true but the birds like all that jive, so why not indulge them?

I'm quite lucky that my partner has never seen the point in it and so it was agreed ages ago we'd never even acknowledge it.

We don't buy Christmas presents either and just do something small for birthdays. The romance in our house is out of control at times.

Cano do that all year round, don't need a particular day for it. Bonus for me is that my bird isn't that bothered either and was happy with a card and takeaway :hail:

I went out about 11am for the Football told her I'd be back for 7ish and we can order takeaway or something, Rolled in about 3am and she had ordered Pizza herself and left me some to heat up when I got in. No cards, no flowers. We both think it's shite so we didn't bother.

Interview with a takeaway!

I loved that film. With Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac, Christian Slater as Daniel Molloy, Kirsten Dunst as Claudia and Tom Cruise as a large pepperoni pizza with garlic bread.

Worked it.

Saw her in the evening, gave her a really cheap card and ordered a takeaway. Just another day really.
