Having never posted anything on Valentines day in the past to her or anyone else, what is expected?

I have a gift / card and will get flowers, but these days, people seem all crazy about facebook and stuff
She will expect you to say something on FB if she's like that. Say happy valentine's day. And some other nice stuff that's shortish and not too over the top, a few sentences. I'm assuming you've told her you love her, say that. Maybe post a cute song? That's good too!

Oh please! These holidays are really for fools and their money to part. Get her a card at the dollar store and be done with it. Just because you are a big spender on Valentine's day doesn't make her love you any more. Who dreams up holidays like this anyway??

Some people like celebrating love, family, their religion... There, I just explained every holiday to you. I don't know why some people have to rain on other people's parade. It's just fun and feels good. Chill

I'm not big on Valentine's Day. No idea what I will get. A card would be nice, but I won't make a big deal of it and wouldn't at any stage of the relationship.

I hate gushing Facebook posts! I deactivated my Facebook anyway. Gushing about your SO on Facebook is nothing but putting on a show.

What do women want for Valentines Day ??



Well, since women aren't all one blob of mindless clone that likes the same thing, I'm not sure you're going to get anything useful here.
Notice your woman - her likes, dislikes, hobbies, interests.

Me? For your examples:

1 Just dating - Ok, if we just started dating, I wouldn't really expect much. A cute card, a mix tape, bottle of alcohol...

2 dating exclusive for a few months - By now, you should know me. Spend time with me doing something I like - make me dinner. Take me to an arcade or bowling or laser tag or to shoot pool. Buy me drinks and laugh with me.

3 living together or married - Maybe some flowers and a nice bottle of wine. Make sure there's something we can do in the house that night - watch a movie? Play some video games together? Something different from the usual dealing with the kids and dogs hassle. Oh, and some of my favorite food delivered to the house would be great.


Simple.

I think it's important to note that the people who are saying not to post anything on Facebook are people who don't like Facebook or don't have one. SHE is very into it and constantly checks in when she arrives places and posts a lot. People should try giving advice based on what people describe about their SO, not what they personally like.
"My gf loves horses, should we go horseback riding together?"
"No!! Horses are stinky and dangerous!"
See how that isn't good advice?

I am in the dating exclusively for a few months category. And I am having flowers and a card delivered to her job, and reservations to a very nice restraunt and dancing afterwards. I think that should about cover it

I have Facebook.
Most of my friends do.
We have had these kinds of conversations.
While most like a bday or anniversary note, no one cares much for the vday one.

My wife doesn't like flowers. Why get something that will die in a few days? I've given her a potted plant so we can plant it when the warmer weather gets here. She's supposed to be watching her blood sugar but doesn't turn down a small box of chocolate. Valentine's Day is my birthday so we usually just go out to eat, but this year we may slip out of town for a couple nights.
