I agree with some of the comments made here saying Valentines Day is extremely "commercial".

I loved it in elementary school where everyone gave everyone a Valentines card. That was fun.

It's never really been a big deal to me.  I have gotten some lovely Valentines gifts over the years, but nowadays, my hubby and I try to go out on or around Valentines day.  We don't really exchange cards or gifts any more.  Sometimes we still do.

The worst Valentines day of my life was 12 years ago when I had scheduled surgery on that day to remove my gallbladder.  It WASN'T romantic! a-hard-days-night-george-10

My son's doing the whole "exchange cards" thing in his preschool. He doesn't want to exchange them with girls, though- "Girls are yucky!" I simply tell him "Some day, son, you'll understand..."

Gall bladder removal on Valentine's Day? Yikes... my wife had hers removed a week before our honeymoon, so it wasn't as romantic as it could have been. Then again, considering I have a history of un-romantic circumstances happening to me around moments that should be romantic (all usually involving food poisoning), I'm sort of surprised I haven't had kidney stones yet or something. I guess there's still time. ahdn_paul_01

 

I totally went through that with my kids too, Westroosa!  The boys didn't want to give to girls when they were young.  Too cute & funny!  apple01

With the way you described the above (food poisoning, etc.), I'm glad you have managed to keep yourself healthy a-hard-days-night-george-10  if not romantic!

Yeah...surgery on Valentines was kind of depressing.  Mind you, I was super glad to get rid of that gallbladder! a-hard-days-night-george-10

The wife was glad to get rid of hers, too. Especially since she was in unbearable pain right before it was removed.

Healthy and romantic is the way to go. For some odd reason, especially in my bachelor days, the two didn't mix always. I actually spent 3 days in the hospital thanks to a foodborne illness (I'll spare you the details- trust me, it's for the best) right when me and my first ever g.f. had just started dating, and I remember joking to her in the hospital "I swear baby, it won't always be like this." And then I got violently ill again when I first started dating my wife, and she actually took care of me until I had recovered, and now we're married today. When you find a woman who'll mend to ya when you're sick, especially at the beginning, you gotta hold on to that girl. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

From Paul's FB:

Happy Valentine's Day!

If you'd like to send Paul's 'My Valentine' plus message to your loved one, you can do so here: http://www.paulmccartney.com/m.....-valentine

But remember, for them to find out who sent the song they must send it on to their Valentine. We hope it's you!

Is it just me, or does this seem like a potentially awkward recipe for disaster?

^^ How so? It's just one of those soppy things I imagine sweet/sickly couples doing.

Oh, is that how it works? That seems a bit strange. So you ''declare your love for someone'', and then they do to, but to someone else... ? Surely that can't be right.

No, no, no, I'm saying it's awkward if they *do* send it to someone else. Basically, you're sending a secret Valentine and the only way to reveal who sent it is if the recipient happens to send it back to you (hence the "we hope it's you"). But if they don't...

It's confusing and weird.

Looking at the highlighted line, I'm guessing there's nothing to stop them sending it to you... just nothing to guarantee it!

Happy Valentines if you celebrate it!

 

I kind of celebrate it.  I go on a date with my husband. Is it more special than a normal date? No. We don't like to go overboard like the rest of the media. You should love the person your with everyday, not just this one day of course. As a kid and teen I felt that way as well, though I never had a Valentine.

I think my parents are going out, which is really weird because they're hardly a romantic couple, and never do anything like that usually. Mind you, I think they're going out with another couple (are they too old to be double-dating?). Still, there's no complaints from me.

Oh is it, Sky? Well maybe it is here, too. I dunno really. I was just surprised when my parents said they were going to... If they can manage to spend a whole meal with each other then that'll be a first.

Well, there's a one-legged woman hopping around Brighton bemoaning how Paul McCartney ended her marriage, that the world hates her, and her settlement was lousy. paul-mccartney But then she should not be named!

She doesn't hop, you know? :) I think that, in the 21st century as we are, they've solved that problem.

She does when she's not wearing her leg! And I doubt she wears it 24/7.
