    I'll stop moaning when I can walk into a shop without seeing hearts everywhere.
    You have just proven my point.

    So should father's day and mother's day both be removed too. Cause some people may not have one of their parents anymore so why can't everyone else do it privately instead of rubbing it in?

    It's just another day, don't take it so seriously luv. It gives a reason for couples to be sweet to each other since people forget to do that. Especially if you have a busy life.

    Yeah a vast majority of my mates live long way away or in another country now.
    There's nothing wrong with going out by yourself! Many dessert places are having a buy one get one free. Don't let it get you down! Make yourself some yummy pancakes and spend the day pampering yourself!

    Every year I hear of single people that intend to get together and go to the pub, or just generally do something as a group of single people. Non-Christians celebrate Christmas right? Why is this so difficult to understand?
    If by celebrate you mean drown their sorrows then sure yeah lol.

    Pub does not mean get drunk.

    Other things does not have to involve drinking.

    Your comprehension skills are pretty poor, I'm starting to see why you're so upset about something that has no impact on you

    This!

    I find father's day really difficult for this reason but also appreciate that others have nice times with their dads, that's a lot harder for me than Valentine's would be if I was single. I don't think there is anything wrong with either!

    I'm not a fan because I'm bitter, but I don't think others should miss out and hide away from everyone else if they want to celebrate it. That'd be like cancelling Christmas for everyone because some people don't celebrate it. They don't have to, but allow the people that do to enjoy it

    I wouldn't say I'm really genuinely bitter, I just kind of make jokes about being bitter with my friends if that makes sense :laugh: In all it's just a normal day for me, with the added bonus of hilarious punny valentines cards that my friend, Grace, and I send to each other in bulk :rofl:

    Don't know if this has already been mentioned, but you get a free sub when you get a large drink at subway and pornhub premium is free on valentines day, thank me later.
    Not too fond of subway, thanks though.

    I've not drunk alcohol in 5 years and yet, I attended the pub quiz every Sunday for 2 years. I even gave up fizzy drinks, so I was on the water!

    Why do you make such a wide assumption on what everyone does in the pub?




    I'd say that valentines is below that of Christmas and Halloween for 'in your face' stuff. What about the Football and Rugby World Cups, do they bother you?

    What is it about people celebrating being in a relationship that you don't like? You say you're celibate and quite happy, so what's the big deal? A lot of single people 'complain' about Valentine's day, but generally that is just good natured ranting, as opposed to genuine annoyance.

    Its a pretty valid assumption. Pubs are places where people drink. If you don't thats fine but youre the exception.

    Ahh, well, but your assumption was that the suggestion of going to the pub was to drown your sorrows and dismissed the counter argument by saying that are no other ways to interpret 'going to the pub' - which is not a valid assumption.

    But this is off topic.

    My actual question was:

    No, what I actually said was that people who are not in relationships who go out to 'celebrate' Valentines' day are simply drowning their sorrows- putting on a fake show of happiness. There's nothing wrong with that at all- but let's just acknowledge it for what it is.
    I don't mind other people celebrating. I just want to walk down the high street without seeing hearts everywhere really. Also when I see ads saying 'do something for your special someone' or words to that effect I just think **** you, you dont know anything about me, why do you think I'm in a relationship' lol
