A lot of single individuals may in fact feel that Valentine's Day can be somewhat depressing as they are forced to see all of the love heart shaped items in shops and couples confessing their love to one another. But I actually feel quite happy being single as the day approaches. I feel happy knowing I don't have to spend money and try and find the perfect gift for my beloved while being cost effective. It's just another day to me. Is there any other people out there who share my point of view dears?

Me too, I'm planning to spend my whole life single. I'm too good (or too bad) to have a partner

Would you feel the same way if you weren't single?

Valentine's Day is a horrendous example of forced consumerism - I really dislike it personally. It seems more like a chore to me and I don't need a specific day in the year to do something special for my significant other and I don't like being forced to do it on a specific day, especially when the entire retail and service industry chooses to dry **** you over a barrel for the privilege.

Hmmm, that's a difficult one to call for I have yet to be in a relationship. Obviously Valentine's Day is nice for expressing how you care about someone, but it doesn't bother me that I'm not celebrating it with my lover because it feels a little overrated in my view. But yes it may be subject to change when I'm inhabiting the dating world, we shall see within time

I feel if you really love your partner the other 364 days of the year should be more than enough for you to make him/her feel happy. The special stuff people do on valentines day feels like a waste of time to me, save the presents and other crap for an actual day of significance like an anniversary or birthday or something.

We don't do it, I just pick a few days of the year at random it's much more romantic and doesn't feel like a horrible consumerist chore.

Same. It's nothing more than a gimmick, a commercial opportunity for money-hungry businesses, a day where huge profits stand to be made. Anybody can be Prince Charming one day a year, with the dinner and the flower and all that, but you know what impresses me? When a guy can do that NO days a year.

I have been in a relationship for many years and neither of us do anything for valentines day. It's a ridiculous "holiday" made up to sell cards and gifts. Why should that one day be the day you appreciate your partner and do nice things for them? I'm much more appreciative of the little things he does for me everyday than some big, fake gesture that requires little effort to buy once a year.

Does that make my relationship bad/abnormal/uncaring? No.

I wish everyone would boycott valentines day. But it's not going to happen.

On a side note, I feel similarly about Christmas and tend to make small gifts for close family and rarely wrap them and never, ever buy cards for any occasion. It's a waste of trees. I've never had anyone complain or argue with my reasoning.

I feel similarly about buying cards pet. I feel bad for the blessed trees! I also usually just give my presents in gift bags which can be reused instead of wrapping the gifts.
