Valentine's Day comin...n e 1 a romantic?

Is it just me or has valentines day gone crazy and way WAY too commercialised...

I love surprises and do love being romantisised but not into all this teady bear/chocolate/fancy card millarky...

If i was to be surprised with a meal, even beans on toast ha, id b touched...

Dont worry too much guys, us lasses dont expect the world, possibly just a thought that day that you love her....oh am i mushy then? teehee...

We were watching tv last night and the commercial for the hoodie/footie pjs came on saying what a wonderful way to say I love you. Shortly after came the Vermont bears commercial. I turned to my dear one and said " these want to make me gag" he replied "oh good. that let's me off the hook then" I returned "my valentines gift is in the garage right now" (we just bought a new freezer we weren't expecting to shell out money for). We both decided we got a good deal!!

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

My wife is no longer into romantics and all the commercial crap that's out there. She just wants cash on Valentine's Day. She'd be very upset if I spent $100, for instance, on flowers or dinner. This is easy for me too so it's all good.
