(The idea for this poll came from a post from iggy in the Older & Wiser forum, when she said she was "on the prowl for the perfect Valentine's Day present." That wasn't all that post was about, but I thought, HEY, there's a good discussion topic all by itself there! So I pulled it out and put it here.)

If you don't dig this particular holiday for whatever reason, just generalize it out to what you'd particularly like for any especially romantic and/or sexy evening. Or a seriously fun evening. Or daytime, if you're not a night person.

Also, please feel free to include experiences someone could create as well as things that could be purchased in a store.

I have never celebrated Valentine's day in my LIFE.

I was too cool for that.

But I'm no longer as cool as I was formerly, and though it is an intrinsically stupid capitalist marketing scheme disguised as a holiday, it would be fun and different to do something for Valentine's.

Wine and candy and walks on the beach and stuff are all fine, as long as there's some hot sex in there somewhere.

I'm a romantic at heart. I love to search for the "perfect" gift. I usually (99%) give CJ two cards because I can't settle on just one that captures what I'm feeling in my heart.

The best part of Valentine's Day however is when I see her face light up. That's priceless to me.

I think I'd go flowers and a nice romantic dinner out, followed by a nice bottle of wine at home with candles lighting up the room. You figure out what happens next....

I love romance! Therefore it comes as no surprise that I love Valentine's Day. A walk on the beach with that special lady, then a light picnic and a walk back in the sunset...perfection! I don't need expensive gifts and such. Spending time with my lady is the best Valentine's gift I could have.

Unfortunately I've always been disgustingly hopelessly romantic. Logic tells me to snap out of it, but haha, that's never worked. On such romantic occasions I want the whole 9 yards, I absolutely love it. Ive spent time with a few people that begrudgingly oblige my romantic whims, usually while muttering under their breath. But noone who appreciates how happy it really makes me, to be surprised and wooed, and I love getting to do the same in return. /dramatic sigh , well maybe one day

I know what u mean when u say they don't even make an effort. Today I took a shower got dressed n ready to go out for lunch. She wore a pair of old jeans and much older sweatshirt. Really? I don't think so! What's up with that? She dresses for everyone else but me. Why?

I wish u well. Happy Valentine Day from New Jersey.

Iggy, there might be many reasons:

Maybe she feels comfortable with you.

Maybe she was too tired to dress in fancy clothes ( it happens to everyone once in a while)

Maybe you should talk to her about that.... you know, instead of wondering "Why" and talking about her on a forum..

Romance is lovely but in moderation. Too bad we couldn't customize our answers.... I would have felt a little more truthful.

But you see, you can. This is where you'd do that. Down here, with the typing. :)

You can elaborate on whatever you like.

I have never had a romantic evening out but I know I would want it to be really sweet and energetic. I have a taste for the corny experience of romance cause it makes me laugh at the irony of it. I do expect a lot of touchy feely to occur.

Well, i've never considered myself a romantic at heart. But the older i

Get , the more i think i'm becoming one. I've never done this, but i

Think it would be fun to cook a romantic dinner together over a bottle

Of wine. Of course they would have to be the better cook as I suck in

The kitchen, but i think it could be fun over conversation getting to know

Each other. Then some candlelight, humor, maybe a movie or music in a

Cozy setting. To me its not the materialistic that matters, its the quality time

Together.

I would love to watch the sunset and then watch the sunrise and look into her eyes and tell her how much I love her and that she means the world to me, also that she is the most beautiful woman in the world inside and out.

I'm a hopeless romantic and I strongly believe in fairy tale...my idea of the perfect Valentine Day would be a single rose on my pillow when I awake in the morning...a few words of affirmation on the bathroom mirror when I go to brush my teeth...a love note on my windshield wiper or dash board as I'm heading off to work...a beautiful arrangement of chocolate fruit from Edible Arrangements delivered to my job around lunch time...a candlelit dinner followed by a warm bubble bath, with music by Michelle Ndegeocello playing in the background, when I get home...dare to dream!!

I have NEVER had a Valentine  The only exception was when my roommate and I dressed to impress, took each other out to a Cirque Du Soleil show, McCormick & Schmicks Dinner and Had Chocolate Fondue afterwards!

So I hate valentines day.

i think anytime my partner does something with me and only me in mind, it is a beautiful thing. I can say I would love for someone to send me flowers...... no one ever has. : ( I have had some amazingly sweet partners in the past who did sweet and romantic thigs, though.

Wine is good!  Candy is good!!  Cuddles,  long walks on the beach,  movies,  canddlight dinners all fanfuckingtastically good!!!  That said time is the most important  thing you can give me.  I don't care what we do as long as we're  spending  time together  and making each other's lives richer.

Living in a year-round romance is far better than making a show of it for one day. If your significant other knows your heart, then no calendar check is needed to tell you when you should show it. Spontaneity is far more genuine, in any case.
