It's that time of year once again. So, what do you guys have planned for those special people in your lives? I need some romantic ideas that include staying at home. Unique gift ideas for the man would also be helpful.

I think I'm actually going roller skating with my bf and my kids....(my 11 year old daughter is meeting a boy there) =)

The best gift I ever got...it wasn't on Valentine's but I think it would be a great Valentine's gift....my boyfriend gave me an envelope that said "Top 20 reasons I love you" inside were 20 paper hearts, which he cut out himself. Each, with a reason why he loves me. They were wonderful and I had them taped to my bedroom wall up until I recently moved. It was sweet, and something I'll never forget.

Another cute idea...make a coupon book coupons like...good for one back rub, or good for dinner of your choice, good for one kiss, etc. You can usually find them somewhere to buy but I think it means more when you make it yourself.

Good luck and Happy Valentine's Day!

I like that idea, Tracy!

I think the best presents are those that don't cost any money.

Last year I wrote about 100 'messages' (ie 'I love you because...', 'I love when you...' 'Thank you for...' 'You are so...' etc) on post-it-notes, got my boyfriend to leave the house for 30 minutes and stuck them all over the house (in the fridge, under his pillow, under his jocks in the drawer etc). I also pulled the scrabble board out and put it on our bed and wrote "I love you ..." and did the same (via word) on the computer and then I wrote him a 'love note' and stuck it on the front door.

When he came home he was in awe...had a happy 30 minutes hunting around trying to find all the post it notes. I think he was still finding them days after. He ended up sticking all his 'favourites' to his bed side table until the sticky on the post-it-notes came off and now he's put them in a photo album.

Last year we didn't go out for dinner (BF takes me out to dinner on our anniversary, which is on the 12th so we tend to make it a jumbo anniversary/valentine dinner), we had an 'indoor' picnic instead! It wasn't really for romantic reasons (it was more practical as we'd just moved out of home and at the stage had no furniture to eat off), but it was a lot of fun.

Two weeks ago my BF announced that he "didn't want me to do anything because he didn't have time to organise anything for me and if I did something he'd feel guilty and isn't valentine's day a waste of money and time anyway?" [*disheartened sigh*] so I was thinking of just sending him a card at work (and maybe with tracy's top 20 reasons I love you idea) and I'll see if he'll agree to have another 'indoor picnic'.

Those sound like great ideas. I hope your valentine's day is good.

Wonder why guys think that romantic days are a waste of time and money? I've always been a romantic...typical girl stuff...but after being romanced for a couple of years, do the guys just get tired of it? My husband seems to be really bored with that kind of thing. Dating was different story...always bringing me little "love" gifts, ice cream, chocolate, a single rose, candles in the bath...wonder why most guys can't seem to remember those special touches after a while?

Well, I must be lucky because my bf is the romantic one of the two of us. "you know those musician types" ha ha ha.

For my birthday he blindfolded me and took me in the car, we drove for and hour to one of our favorite places. It's a beach on Lake Michigan way north, almost in Wisconsin. It was October so it was cold and we had the beach all to ourselves. He had packed a picnic lunch with Champagne and chocolates. It was so romantic and special.....who needs gifts when you get something like that.

My husband was the opposite, he would buy, buy, buy, diamonds, jewelry, trips, clothes.....he never understood that you can't buy love!!! (Valentine's was our anniversary)

Squeeles, that sounds great last year!! Very romantic. I think maybe this year, you two have a little more going on than last and bf is having a hard time dealing with the romantic stuff. Try to see past the riffs of the last few weeks and just enjoy the day.

Julie...I'm guessing it's the theory of "Well, we've caught her now (marriage), no more hunting necessary".

Sad though. I disagree with the notion of spending money on Valentine's day (I think that aspect is all hype), but I think it's still worthy doing/making something that is memorable and special. Really it's the little things like a single rose or candles in the bath that mean the most.

I think my BF's argument is that 'you should your love all through the year, not just on Valentine's Day' and who can argue with that really?

BF is sweet though...we celebrate our anniversary every month (today is our 19 month anniversary!). Each month I get him a card and a small gift. His present to me is taking me out to dinner. We go by themes...for the first year we went out to the restaurant we had our first date at (and BF arranges the same table) every three months and alternate restaurants for the other months. On our one year anniversary we decided to go for Greek (in another city so wanted to try something different), so now we go out to Greek every three months. He sometimes buys or makes me a card. This morning he surprised me and pulled out a card (he'd hidden under the bed). He's also taking me out to 'brunch' this morning! We're leaving in about 30 mins!!

Tracy...sounds like BF has his good qualities :o) Maybe you could solve his 'job problem' by hiring as your 'sex slave'? That way he has a job, he still has your money and you get...ahh... :oP

Oh, I like the sex slave idea! Might be a little pricey, but it would be nice to have all the attention and energy focused just on the lady! (*blush*)

Well, today is the day! Squeezles, let us know how things went for you. How was the dinner on Tuesday?

I wrote on the Jenny thread about our plans. Nothing fancy, just a family thing on Friday. Then Saturday will be date night with the hubby. We still haven't figured out what we want to do.

So, everyone, Happy Valentine's Day!!

Jenny

Happiest of Valentines Day to You, Jenny šŸ™‚

I was thinking this morning of all the fun I had as a child on Valentines Day. We would take our plain shoebox to school and decorate it and then after lunch, we could share valentines with everyone in our class. It was so fun to find candy in some of them šŸ™‚

I was thinking how fun it would be to give each of you a special Valentines Day Hug ....cause you all are so special, unique, and lovable.
I start by Hugging myself....and sharing the love that exists in my heart to each and everyone of you...through your monitor. šŸ™‚
My how times have changed....would include art work and symbology if possible....but we know that that would slow down the support on our threads....Here is to all your support and supporters.....HVD

Hugs to all my AAC friends. You guys make me feel special. You are right MJ. It always was fun to do the Valentine boxes and exchange with your classmates. My daughter will be doing that for the last time today in elementary school. That is a mixed thought. She is ready for middle school, but I am not ready to let go of the fun times like this. I still keep it alive for my son who is almost 15 and my daughter at home. We all want to feel loved.

ON the rockier side... I'm going to watch the early show of daredevil alone. Then I'm going to visit my jerk friend. It's his birthday today and we have to talk about business. Actually I wanted to also give him a copy of my script to get an unbiased opinion on it. He's good at constructive criticism.

Other than that it's just dinner with the parents and internet porn for me tonight.

So far my day has been great. Hubby asked the other night if I would be dissappointed if I didn't get flowers. "Of course", I said. "I want flowers every day." So, today I get flowers. I ended up getting my favorite man a basket of goodies with his favorite coffee and a couple of other things.

This morning at breakfast, the family exchanged cards. The kids were sweet and actually looking forward to going to school.

It's been a good day.

Happy Valentine's Day to all ya'll.
OXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

i got 12 long stemmed red roses delivered to me! i dont want them to die, i wish flowers could live forever.
i have heard that some boyfriends can get so comfortable in a relationship that they dont do things they used to do when the relationship first started.
Like, i asked my boyfriend i write down his feelings for me on a piece of paper, because he doesnt talk about his feelings much anymore, i ask him why he doesnt call me cute names anymore aswell. I love being called baby and princess.
Do u think its cause he is so comfortable and he knows that i know that he loves me heaps?
grrr i duno

Hey all,

I'd like to share with you my valentine date. I needed that one too, I haven't had one in 2 years. We went out early to a local pizza place where we had some pizza and buffalo wings. she bought me a huge box of gourmet jelly beans andI bought her a teddy bear, chocolate rose, and boxof chocolates. Then, my fraternity had a wine and cheese party and we fellowshipped with them for the rest of the night. After that, we went back to my place and we just talked. Initially, I wanted to try and make a move on her to see if I could have sex. But, as we talked that night, it dawned on me. Valentine's Day is about more than just sex and spending money. It's about sharing a special moment with the one you really care for. And that's just what we did, we talked for a while. And even though we didn't go all the way, it didn't even matter. For the only important thing was that she was there with me. In fact, we had so much fun last night, we are going out again tonight. This time she's cooking for me and I'm gonna cook a side dish. Well, gotta go, hope you all had a happy Valentine's Day and I'll post more later.

Mr. Anonymous,

Good for you!!!Let us know what happened. Sounds like you had a great time.

I had fun, too. I love the "make a bikini" for your man pam...I'll definitely have to try that another evening. He loved the "love" coupons most of all.

I'd love to hear all about your special days and the special things you do for your partner.
