I think it's just a silly marketing gimmick that people (especially men) fall for. :o

Too comercialised...
I dont think anyone knows the actuall story of St Valentine either...
Just another one of those days....to spend lots of money.. on shit.

It was invented by Card companies to boost their post-Xmas sales ;)

Seriously, it's meaningless and causes more harm than good!

It's not just valentine - most holidays are. They are here mainly for two things:
one - to send a message to people that they should love each other more (of course, a lot of people can only do nice things with family and friends during holidays; on other days, they have to go to work)
two - to spend the cash you have earned during the working weeks...

So true about the card companies.

Valentines doesn't bother me although I can understand how it distresses single people who want to be in relationships.

Single this year but even when I've been going out with someone I've found this day to be complete and utter nonsense. Just a money making racket, there doesn't need to be a day to show someone you love them.

I don't like those determined days where you're supposed to give sb presents, like Christmas or Valentine's Day. My girlfriend and I have agreed not to get each other something for Valentine's Day. We don't need this day to say each other I love you or to give each other something.
Valentine's Day isn't that popular here as in e.g. America anyways.

I'm more socialist than anyone, but that doesn't mean that you can't celebrate holidays that have become very commercialized. You don't *HAVE* to buy things for someone to celebrate Valentine's Day. I think it's sweet, and can just serve as a nice reminder to show your appreciation for the people that you love.

i agree but it's women that fall for it and think it means something. as a result they force their men into getting them something, most men i know think it's :bs: actually any woman with a brain and or without a boyfriend also thinks so. ;)
