So I was scrolling through fb today as you do, and came across a few memes based around Valentines Day…...

I wanted to ask- how do these memes make you feel? Whatever your relationship status is?

And what do you think about the day as a whole?

for me the memes annoy me! they just point out the lonely-ness

I personally think day itself is quite cute considering I’m an old fashioned romantic (I try not to tell too many people- because they think it’s cringy and soppy :cry2: ) but never have done anything for it….but i think its a nice way of spending time with someone you love and having that one special day just for each other? :blush:

what about you lot?

Engaged, and we dont plan to anything in particular since it's a tuesday and we're both in work, might try and cook something fancy and romantic at the weekend. I guess i do feel that you should show your love and gratitude to each other every day rather than have extra on valentines day though :P

A superficial and distasteful by-product of consumerism and the free sex culture. I have seen people desperately buy a new relationship for Valentine's day like a new puppy for christmas.

I dislike it, it's just another reminder that no guy has ever wanted me. It saddens me to be honest

When I was in a relationship, I would get given gifts but I generally hated the concept behind it, it's just so commercialised.

Me and partner don't celebrate it as Valentines Day but instead, we moved into our first flat together on 14th Feb which happens to the same day but we celebrate the fact that was the day we moved in together instead of celebrating what greeting card companies tell us to celebrate.

Fair play to couples that do celebrate Valentines Day, just as long as they appreciate their partners every other day of the year too

Single now but spent two valentines days in relationships (two different relationships).
The first time we both agreed to do nothing, I lied a bit and got her chocolates
The second time I was volunteering with my (now ex) girlfriend all day in London
I got her some flowers but we were busy all day and by the time we got back to hers (had to take a long train ride) it was late so we went straight to sleep :lol:
So yeah never been a big deal for me

The day is actually in honour of St. Valentine - which goes back far far in history :^_^:
~it started off as a friendship between St.Valentine and his student/ friend but now we come to celebrate it as romance ~

Personally I think it`s a romantic day when you have someone to celebrate it with. If there`s no one to celebrate it with, it`s nice to curl up with a good book/ movie/ cat and make yourself loved~~~ I`m such a romantic *sigh*
