    So I think valentines day is a dumb hallmark holiday and in general a pain in the ass.

    My GF, of course, thinks its great.

    So she got a tshirt custom made for me that says "<3 Worlds Dumbest Holiday" So basically she went through all that time, effort, and expense to get me a tshirt thats going to take up space at the bottom of a drawer and is a shining example of why I think this holiday is retarded.

    sometimes I wonder about women.

    ugh.. I hope i can find some freaking roses without too much trouble later so at least she will be happy and finally stop yapping about how i never give her flowers.

    it gives them a reason to be passionate and carrying towards there man if it's a heterosexual relationship. Women love a reason to dress-up or to make a big deal about something. I guess that would be making something special. When they get the chance or an excuse that justifies it, they step on board the train and use it because otherwise society wouldnt let them normally. Go with it and enjoy the effort she is putting for stop being so self-conceded.

    I used to bitch about the stupid shit you had to go through on V-day for your SO and then, I spent last V-day in the middle of a divorce and this one with no SO.

    Be happy you have someone who loves you and stop taking her for granted.

    Damn, way to be a total buzzkill. She was trying to be funny! There's no way she expects you to wear the shirt all the time :ugh: I agree it's a dumb "holiday" but just suck it up :dunno: If you love your gf like you say you do then just do something nice for her, sheesh.

    BTW, roses and chocolates are the lamest way to go. Shit, you could buy her a card and be done with it. At least in there you can reaffirm your feelings for you w/o being so cliche.

    short end of the (long and painful) story is that Im going out of my way to fulfill every cliche because im pretty sure, at this point, that thats my most reasonable path to having her be satisfied.

    apparently every other nice thing ive ever done for her pales in comparison to buying her flowers which is the one and only way she will ever feel that I think she is special and "worth it" despite the fact that shes far too smart to not know that after all her bitching to me and anyone else that would listen about her alarming lack of flowers that if she ever did get them they would definitely be stfu-heres-your-freaking-flowers-already flowers.

    wait, have you two really been going out long enough to bring up the "he never gives me flowers" argument?


    never implies something longer than, say, 4 months.

    My point is that you are sitting bitching about 1 stupid holiday. Be glad you got her.

    You sound like 90% of OT, chumps with no sense of romance or confidence searching for any excuse to weasel out of a show of affection.

    I am glad Ive got her. thats why despite what I think of the dumb holiday, and despite what I think should make her happy, Im going to suck it up and do it her way and get her what she says she wants.

    trust me, you guys think its lame, and I think its worse then that, but its my best guess at what will make her happy, so im doing it.

    :rofl:

    I knew what would make her happy. I was just too exhausted/stubborn/unappreciative to do it.

    This is why I am harping about taking her for granted. Looking back, I took her for granted just like this.

    you are going to think this is a snide remark, but its not:

    apparently I have no idea what makes her happy or makes her feel special because I have not bought her flowers.

    carribean vacations including dinner served right in the beach, candlelit gourmet dinners at home with a bottle of wine ive been saving for 2 years, stocking my fridge with her favorites and my bedroom with lotions, stopping by her job just to say hi, taking care of her when shes sick....

    nope.. no flowers, no care.

    Man, it's not WHAT you do, it's HOW you do it.

    Sooner or later you'll understand this with women.

    In fact, if she TOLD you to buy her flowers and you do it, you're not going to get the appreciation that you crave. Why? Because she TOLD YOU to do it.

    I 100% completely and totally agree with you. I am soooooo 1000000% agreeing with you its not even funny, BUT what else do you do when she won't stfu about them? she won't even't stfu about it for a month or two so that I could even plausibly pretend that its spontaneous.

    Tell her that it won't mean shit if you buy them just because she says to buy them and she knows it and to shut up about it.

    Maybe not as harsh as that, but you could tell her that she's ruined the chance of getting flowers because she won't shut up about them.

    "why are you so against just doing something nice to make me feel special?"

    now i know what you are going to say next, so let me clarify, "something nice" may mean something other then flowers, but it sure as hell doesnt mean anything else ive ever done, thought of doing, seen in a movie, or dreamed about besides flowers as far as i can find out.
