What have your Valentineâ€™s Day experiences been in the past? Have they been good or bad?
â€œIâ€™ve never really had a Valentine. In high school I did, but that doesnâ€™t count. It wasnâ€™t anything special. I think if youâ€™re with someone, Valentineâ€™s Day is cool. My mom always leaves me valentines, so thatâ€™s nice. Iâ€™m okay with that.â€
â€œLast year my Valentineâ€™s Day was pretty good. My boyfriend made me dinner and I made him a card and some dessert and it was really nice. We just had a little dinner together.â€
â€œThis year, my girlfriend told me that I didnâ€™t have to get her a gift, but I donâ€™t know if thatâ€™s a lie or a setup. Where do you go from there? In my past, you donâ€™t have to do and do anything outrageous, just show someone you care.â€
â€œLast year, I went home and cooked for my girlfriend. We just had a very romantic dinner together.â€
â€œMy now-fiancÃ© had a great Valentineâ€™s Day gift for me our first Valentineâ€™s Day. I live on campus, so my roommates let him into my room and he put chocolate candies around the room, gave me flowers and a picture frame with our names etched on it. It was a really great experience, so I like Valentineâ€™s Day.â€

â€œIâ€™ve never had a girlfriend on Valentineâ€™s Day, intentionally, so Iâ€™ve saved a lot of money over the years. I believe that Valentineâ€™s Day is just a ploy by the American government to push capitalism. I guess Iâ€™m okay with it, but Iâ€™m not going to support it.â€
