    Wherefore art thou @Horatio? The day seems eternally empty without you.
    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    We're both INTP's, and I love him to bits. But after a decade, I don't give a shit about this holiday anymore.

    I feel like this is the only place I know online or irl where this sentiment may be adequately appreciated.
    Yeah that is pretty much where A and I are with it. First year or two a peremptory card exchange and vague promise of doing something sometime soon, which has morphed into neither of us pretending to care about it. We don't give each other Christmas presents either. It is how you show you care across the year that counts, not some daft marketing gimmick.

    Valentine's Day is kinda weird, sure, but ignoring it when you're in a relationship is even weirder IMO.

    Also, here we call it "Día de los enamorados".

    I totally forgot it was Valentine's Day until I looked at a calendar at like three this afternoon. Then I sent my boyfriend a text all like "Sup, babe? Happy V Day. *emojis*"

    Yeah I'm killin' it.

    Also I nailed (in more than one sense) his birthday, which was like last week.

    The more I treat certain aspects of this relationship as if I'm a frat boy and he's a sorority girl, the more successful I seem to be.

    Too bad, Lady Une. You were far too lenient.
    As a soldier, yes. But as a civilian I lived an austere life.

    I'd rather be given a rose one day out of the year than be given a rose every single day.

    Yeah you can tell your gf that you think Valentine's Day is a marketing gimmick and that you shouldn't celebrate it all you like. Your gf will nod in agreement like a good girl but she's secretly wishing for a surprise, however small. Everyone wants to feel special.

    Of course it's different if you're 5 years into a relationship and heaps settled. But if you're a fresh couple and you're not taking the opportunity to make your partner feel special & loved then you're doing it wrong.

    If you need someone of the opposite sex to buy you a symbol of a consumer holiday in order to feel special, you're doing it wrong.

    I don’t take advice from clinically depressed people.

    Edit: lol that sounds condescending but I mean it in the way I wouldn’t get a medical checkup from a doctor that smokes, just doesn’t really make sense.
