    Single.

    Valentines day rather depresses a single shmoe like me. That and the fact that my school posts it everywhere and has a "couples calendar" further shoves it in my face.

    Oh well, nothing that good ol' computer gaming cant fix. Shoot shoot bang bang, kaboom lots of fun

    She broke up with me the day before Christmas. And didn't buy me a Christmas present. And kept the one I gave her. Oh, well.
    Good news!!! I wish you the very, very best. :smile: Are you planning the honeymoon yet? :wink:

    Not to my knowledge, but there's a first time for EVERYTHING. I'll let you know if I exhibit any untoward behavior.

    Unfortunately, :wink: that's just ME!! I'm an out-there, in-front-of-God-and-everybody kind of girl. If any of you DO want to be one of my Valentines, just know THIS: I've already eaten all of the chocolates I got for you. Sorry! THAT'S just ME, too!!

    nothing special. Coming from the far east, valentine's day isn't too big of a deal. However, for valentines day (early present) my husband gave me a Ruger P94 .40 caliber autoloader and operates double or single action. We are going to go to the target range on valentine's day to shoot it.

    I'll spend my Valentine's Day with Physics and Maths coz they are my valentines. Oh I love them, yeah. So I'll buy Physics some white chocolate and Maths some dark chocloate. Envy me? I have two valentines, and I will spend half of the day with Physics and the other half with Maths.

    Re: Re: Valentine poll

    Sounds like a great valentines day present, if only I had a girl who would buy me a gun for the holidays :frown:. So far ive found no other girl who likes WWII arsenal as much as I do (I can state statistics on various guns from the main allied/axis countries). Surely girls will like talent like that...? Maybe? Bah, that wont work, and now im rambling. Time to go.

    We are so fun loving, you'd think we have friends OUTSIDE the internet lol

    I would be interested in WWII statistics...however i am male - as my name suggests.

    I wonder... anyone else have the inate ability to sort OTHER people's relationships out but they never have a partner/never last in a relationship. Seems such a typically Hollywood disease, but it happens in real life which is worrying.

    Nothing says love like a handgun

    Monique, are the stats what you expected? I never would have imagined this many people having dates. I was thinking cloesr towards 0.

    I just bought 2 tickets for a 3 hour cruise around Manhattan with food and dancing. I have nobody to take with me but I'm saving it for the future since the ticket lasts up to November 2005. Perhaps next Valentines, who knows..

    The Professional has to make a professional job of it, that girl is gonna feel like the luckiest person on earth.

    Lol i previously offered to take this girl out but she wont be down for the weekend, and is going out with her dad for valentines day. hehe she cant decide if it is tragic or sweet that her dad is going to take her out. I COULD HAVE DONE THAT!!! [b(]

    That's very SWEET, Chopnik. My dad took me out for a Valentine's dinner when my mom was in the hospital with pneumonia when I was in high school. It's a memory I treasure. If she's truly your Valentine, you could (QUICK! ) buy her a beanie bear with some pretty earrings attached to it's ears so she has something from YOU to wear on her date with her dad...

    Just an idea...

    Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Hope you get CHOCOLATES!!!

    I risked my job for a girl just recently (if that counts as anything romantic) but as to answer the question...

    Single, probably won't get noticed but I'm too busy with my Engineering Statistics course to give a damn in the first place.

    Not only that, but Valentine's Day is commercialized. Why do you need one day to tell that someone that you care for them?

    You don't, but it is a good excuse to take the night off and give some extra attention. Maybe rent a movie, make your favorite diner, go to that exibition you'd be wanting to go to.

    I hate the commercialization, it is crazy.. this whole past week has been about nothing but valentine's day. The stores are full with these cheap cheezy gifts and stuff, the radio is going on non-stop about it, even the cafeteria has changed its menu the entire week to host the theme.

    I just think it should be a day where you look eachother in the face and feel comfortable. Not walking around frantically looking for the cheapest roze and a card.
