I know I am. I've never had a valentine in my life, (17 years old now) and it looks like this year won't be any different. I'm not so sad about it anymore, the only thing I don't like is everyone knowing. 4th period, on the day of, or the day closest to, valentine's day everyone gets valentines. Some are anonymous, some aren't. The school charges $1 a valentine and delivers them all 4th period. For the past 2 years of highschool, I have had the lucky oppurtunity of being the only kid in my class who doesn't get one.

Anyways, who else is spending it alone?

While Valentines Day is nice for those who have an opportunity to celebrate it, the whole thing is just a gimmick. It's an opportunity for the shops to sell a load of stuff between christmas and easter.

I have only celebrated it once with a lady and that was when I was 16. It's just so happenned that ive not been with any other girlfriends around Valentines Day since. Unless some beautiful young princess comes my way I won't be celebrating it this year either.

Last year I hung out with my best mate. Get together with a friend or a group of friends and just hang out like you normally would to take your mind off it. I dont let it bother me. In fact im working that day and me and the guy im working with joked that we will have a nice romantic coffee together at lunch ;)

High school is generally rife with popularity contests. Unfortunately, you are judged by how many people like you. It doesn't get any better when you leave high school either. If not receiving a Valentine is a really big issue for you, buy one for yourself, and have it delivered to you. That way, at least you'll spare yourself the awkwardness.

I grew up with parents whose religion did not allow them to celebrate any holidays. Therefore, I wasn't allowed to celebrate any. No presents on Xmas, no Easter Bunny, nothing. I had similar experiences as you. The kids at school were scared to give me any holiday paraphernalia. They thought my parents would be upset, and I would get in trouble. Not cool when you are just a kid, and all you want to do is fit in.

I am also 17 :D I only received one valentines card, and that was from a creepy guy who decided it was a good idea to list the various ways and positions which we could "celebrate our love". I'm not sure if it was a joke or if he was being serious but it was creepy and not something you really wanna read about at 15 :lol:

Yep, I shall be spending valentines day alone. I always have as well, and at 20 years old, it doesn't bother me. It just so happened I wasn't ever dating or even in the 'talking' process with a guy around that time.

Like others have said, high school is chock full of popularity contests. I do not agree that the world is like this though. Maybe likability is still a factor, but whether or not you have a 'valentine' is of no consequence anymore. I have friends who are single, those who are engaged, those who are married, and those who are confused.

It is a commercialized holiday anyways. Enjoy the day like you would any other and treat yourself to something nice like an evening with friends and some chocolates. =)

Hell no I won't be spending V-day alone, I'll be hangin with my homeboys jack D, jose C, or Jim B. I don't know which one yet, but Jose C is lookin mighty fine. I'm sure ol' bud W will drop by too, that bastard is always here.

...and no I'm not gay if anyone is that clueless lol

By the way personally I think V-day is for children/teens more than anything else, kind of like halloween. It's kind of stupid for adults, because if you're in a real relationship you don't need something like V-day to show someone you love them, you do it daily/often anyway. It is a nice thought to have a "valentine", but like karaisa said, I think it's just overhyped/commercialized.

Aw Christof so sweet! :D

I find Valentines quite irrelevant as Im single at the minute. When with someone Id honestly prefer if they did something sweet and romantic on any other day than Valentines because then theyre doing it because they want to and thought of it themselves not because its the day that they're supposed to.

Very true! Why does it take a day of the year that is almost forced upon us to appreciate our loved ones?

I agree with what everyone else is saying about Valentine's day, even though I'm not single...it's really just any other day. I feel like the importance is magnified in high school, where it is so important to have a significant other! I didn't start dating until after high school, so for Valentine's Day, my friends and I would buy each other candy and flowers and made it fun. Just wait until you get to college...all these things you worry about so much will be so insignificant!

Your quote is from Le Petit Prince! :D haha, sorry, I read that book in French class a couple months ago and when I saw it in your post I'm like, "Where have I heard that quote before?" and it was really bothering me, and then it just came to me.. (: I really liked that book!

Wow. Some of these posts were hard to read; I definitely understand. While being alone on Valentine's Day is definitely painful, try not to give in to bitterness and despair!! It really makes it that much worse. Specifically to red2528 and to the original poster--being alone on Valentine's Day REALLY isn't the end of the world. I'm 22, and I've never had a date on Valentine's, and I'm not a loser. And you aren't either! Our culture makes having a boyfriend/girlfriend such a priority that all of us without are made to seem like there's something wrong with us. I would love to get married someday, pretty much more than anything, but there's a fine line between bitterness and acceptance for our lives TODAY. Don't let the painful reminders of singleness translate into a wrong view of yourself--and others :) .

So true! I agree. Too many people go around looking for love and personally that's not how I think it should be. :naughty:

I could give a shit less about not having a boyfriend. (aside from the fact that I'm 15 and at this age they don't matter anyways :razz:) My friend gave me roses in seventh grade and I thought that was great. :) You don't need a significant other!

I'm just sad I won't get presents :shhh:

I'm babysitting for my Church on Valentines day. :D So, I actually have something to look forward too.

As for the handing out stuff, I never get 'em. And I'm OK with that cause the time will come, but I would like a white rose so I might just get one from the florist cause they're so pretty. :)

But I'll be single on Valentines Day. NBD. :D

I am having a dilemma right now. I have a good six days off from school with President's day coming up following Valentine's day. I want to get subcision and V Beam laser done on 2/11 for my scars and red marks.

HOWEVER... I have a GF but dont want to see her after the treatment as I would look like a monster.

Help people! Should I postpone my treatments till Spring Break(at the end of March) or just make up V-day to my gf after? To me, Vday is just another day. You can celebrate with your gf/bf any day.
