    So the girlfriend sends me this link about what not to do on Valentines day, along with a note saying, "not that your doing anything wrong". Right; then why send me the link.


    6 mistakes men make on Valentine's Day on Shine


    So I've done several of the things they say not to do, and now I'm more confused then ever. We've been together ten years and I'm supposed to start writing her poetry? :eek:

    What do you guys think? What do you do that seems to make your lady happy?

    She gets a card and thats about it. If she ain't happy oh well. V day is nothing more than a womens way to bilk more money out of my pocketbook. Sorry it ain't happening. She knows it just like she knows I want no more kids EVER and I don't want to get married.

    Women only want a man that is attentive and caring but is still a real man. No matter what they say. You can do this without turning into the emasculated version of a man that is being sold today IMHO. I would be straightforward and ask her why she sent it to you. Ask her where it is she thinks you are falling short. If it is a serious issue, deal with it. If it is a romance novel issue, work on it only if you want to. Life aint perfection and neither are we. Just sayin'

    Hmm, that's a tough one. I have always gone the Hallmark route (with a handwritten profession of why I love her in it), sometimes with a bear, and never had any complaints. :confused:

    If you go out for VDay anymore, the restaurants are so busy and the waitstaff so harried, that it's more an atmosphere of a feedlot than a romantic meal out. So anymore, I pan-sear a good filet mignon and open a bottle of good red wine, and we have a candle-lit dinner in the comfort of our own home. Works wonders in the romance dept. And sending flowers to her at work is almost mandatory.

    Valentines day is on a Monday this year so it makes it a little tougher. I am not supposed to do anything special (sure). I usually get her roses and dinner. The restaurants really stick it too you at this time of year and Monday is a day off for some. If you can cook, make her a really special meal with some good wine and some nice flowers on the table. Possibly a romantic movie and some romantic music. She will appreciate the personal effort and think she is being wined and dined while you know it is really feed and breed.

    I screwed myself hard doing up Christmas.

    I got a piece of lunar meteorite. It's a tiny rock out of NW Africa, $50. Crack cocaine would have been cheaper.

    I included a card, explaining that when we got married, I promised her the moon, and now I've delivered.

    I go to work (I work with mostly women), and the usual "What did you get your wife?" conversation pops up. I explain, and the whole building pauses and stares, then melts. One girl runs off crying. Thighs are moistening.

    I am now the single most romantic man in the world. Every spouse of every woman I work with hates me, that snuggie you bought your girl cannot compare. The babes swoon.

    Now the problem.

    How do you top that? You don't. You've literally given her the moon. That Whitman Sampler isn't gonna cut it.

    So I bought a small blank journal, and started doing poetry. I can do three a day or so, if there's a humorous event, I can contribute more. If she burns a roast, I can tear off a poem about it, and make it funny, and I cared enough to console her about a roast.

    I'm the man.

    Get her a real bear, that should shut her up.




    No, really though, its a trick. All holidays are a trick. It depends how she "feels" love on what you should get her. I know, super schwoopy, but really it works. I for example am a "physical touch" (get your mind out of the gutter) person. best for me is a movie on the sofa. You just have to figure out what her currency is and use it to your advantage.

    Get a grease pencil and write a cute note on the mirror of your bathroom or her car. Or use a sticky note. Then offer to wash her car. Don't do what I did for my wife. She wanted something GOLD. I got her a Henry!!!

    Make her a video put it to music. [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86DdK_TWe24[/ame] This is the one I made.

    Yes, I'm a foppish dandy. I'm an 80's New Romantic. I sylph about town in eyeliner, I take care of myself.

    I baby oil often, but not so much that the rose petals sprinkled on my bed stick to me.

    Champers for breakfast. That sort of thing.

    Oh, your girl says "Hi".;)

    This one's easy Joe. She doesn't want a card, she doesn't want the flowers, she doesn't want the chocolates and she doesn't want a restaurant dinner.

    Fine :cool:

    Grab a bottle of her favorite wine, her favorite cd of romantic songs and a nice warm blanket. Take her out in the SUV and find a nice clear spot where you can watch the sun go down and view the stars in the night sky. ;)

    Then enjoy :D

    I hate to say it but I got mine a dyson DC-17 one year she was so stoked. The next I got her a Shark steam mop. That thing KICKS serious dirt but man. In fact I was up till 1 am last night running the steam mop. Cleans the floors and makes your skill look good as well.

    For benning To top the lunar rock get her a star.... Really name a star after her.
