My kind of woman


Call me the Grinch of Holiday's, but I hate commercialism. Even when it comes to Valentines Day. I just hate it when someone else tells me it's time for me to prove my love. Don't get me wrong, I like romance. However, like most men, I like to call the shots.

Men shouldn't have to feel like they have to jump through hoops just because it's Valentines Day AND we shouldn't have hell to pay from our women just because we take that stance.

Don't punk out, I know I'm not the only one.

Card makers capitalize on 'anti-V Day'

I know you all expect me, the girly girl, to love Valentines day. In truth, I despise it. I call it a 'hallmark holiday.' I think people should be nice to their significant other every day--not just on some pre-appointed day chosen by greeting card companies. Dave and I try to treat each other with kindness throughout the year--I would be very disappointed if Valentines day was the only day that he did something nice for me.

Now, when I was single, I enjoyed Valentines day because I usually got a card or flowers from a new admirer...but, now that I'm married, I just think it's silly.

Sorry for the long post.

There's always one in the crowd: I happen to love the holidays. Call me materialistic and shallow, but I love it. I want the cards and candy. My husband would totally agree with the guys. I still get the whole 'I show my love all year long' speech. As long as I get something, I can sit thru the monologue.
Plus, is it not true that Men are expecting a little 'extra lovin' on the holidays?

If you are doing your job the rest of the time, lovin' on Valentines Day doesn't really matter.

Never been a fan of this holiday. When I was a kid in school I used to get empty valentine envelopes for the kids in my class. Or onese that had notes in there to tell me how ugly and black I was. So this holiday has never been my friend.

However, I do buy the candy...I'm sorry...but that stuff is good. LOL

Of course you do no that they were unhappy with themselves. There comments had nothing to do with you. I never met you, but your spirit is beautiful so that's all that really matters.

ok course, I meant KNOW and not NO
