Don't do it and never have.

However, I do the stuff associated with it, apart from the cards obviously, regularly through out the year and so does she. Better to be spontaneous but that's just my opinion.

Ah yes, heard of that the other day.

It's for single women who act all feisty and "I don't need no man because I'm a strong independent woman" but who are actually freaked to bits about it and need to come up with something on 14th February to make themselves feel better.

We'll do cards. That's about it. We usually get a single get a rose for our daughter.
Had one dinner out for Valentines and had the worst meal stuck sitting beside my boss and his wife.

I don’t do it either nor does my wife but if I don’t get her a card and flowers I’m in trouble.

All holidays are a load of bull but life is hard enough

Christmas / Easter / valentines Jesus just enjoy yourself and celebrate doesn’t have expensive it’s the thought that counts

How insecure would a woman have to be to force her man to comply with Valentine's.

Dont do anything either as it is a superficial day focused on material things.

Does anyone find getting cards for your children abit odd?

I worked with a lovely guy years ago, but at valentines he'd mention he'd get a card for his wife and daughter. The daughter was a young teenager at the time. I've long since left so no idea if he still does it. I thought it was abit strange.

I would never have expected a card off my dad.

It’s always been done so I just do it. I know it’s great these days to scoff at everything but I leave all that yawn aside as it makes the Mrs happy, which is top of the list.

He probably does when it’s his.

Always get the kids a card each and put them through the letterbox before they wake up.

We don’t do anything high pressure for ourselves, usually just cards.
This year I’ve bought him a game for his switch, not your typical hearts and flowers, but it’s something he actually wants.

I always get them a card and bake little cupcakes.
Always makes them smile.
