She's the type of chick that a few years down the road, she's still single, wondering why she can't find a man, and wondering why all guys are *******s. I wasn't looking for any play, it was something I thought would be nice to do for her, and I basically got **** on.
I enjoy getting flowers at work, not for attention, but because I'm here more than I am at home. I get home late in the evening so I'd only enjoy them a few hours each night. At least here they brighten up my office and I can enjoy them much longer. Hubby didn't like sending flowers to my job because he didn't want to feel that others thought he was being "showy". After I explained why I like getting them at work, he understood where I was coming from and it made sense to him. But some women don't like getting the attention from co-workers like all the "oooooo's" and "ahhhh's". Whenever I'd get flowers, co-workers would come over like they never saw flowers before and be all ga-ga and say stuff like "oh, your husband must really love you". Really? Am I not worthy? And who sends flowers if they DON'T love the other person?

I guess the key is to go out and have fun with someone...it doesn't necessarily have to be romantic!

Also, there are plenty of women who have someone in their lives, married or just in a relationship, who love us, but if they hate V-day, we don't get to celebrate. So it's not just the singles. Some men refuse. So being alone can feel better than being in a partnership and still not being able to celebrate.
It's those women I feel bad for, as they have to also watch the others around them getting to share that joy.

My thoughts exactly. It's too early for anything more, and casual enough at the moment where just remembering her and sending a nice message will be good. I am expecting to have the "where is this going" talk soon.

Even though she is always sweet and thankful, I stress because I feel like I can never do enough to really show her just how amazingly special she is. Our first "vacation" getaway was a valentines treat to the Bellagio in Vegas. Another was a stay at La Costa Spa Resort. Both GREAT things to do, but I always walk away from them feeling like I didnt do enough for her.

You are so sweet!!!!!!!!!!

My GF gets embrassed very easy so I'm worried about what her reaction might be when she gets the flowers. She is staying with her daughter and her son in law. I guess we'll see what tomorrow brings,
