That depends upon the individuals, their relationship, how long they've been together, and other personal details...not everyone fits the stereotypes.
My husband and I got sick of the commercialism that tends to strip the real meaning from holidays. We got to a point where we just didn't do gifts for holidays, birthdays, or even our anniversary. We just spent the days together. Every now and then one of us would run across something that was just too perfect for the other, or a deal on something we'd been wanting to get for them...and we'd get it and give it right then. It might have been a Wednesday in March or a Tuesday in August. It made the occasional ordinary day really special precisely because it was a gift from the heart and not a gift because it was expected. And the best holidays I've had were spent just hanging out with him...no gifts, no hoopla...just us.
Honestly it really isn’t a big deal until they start hearing what their female friends got,, and Facebook posts start flowing. At that point 67.2285% of all men are completely screwed. :)
I won't take anyone serious, if they can't say what they actually mean.
I don't like things that make me... watch my back.
Say what you mean to say...or keep getting negative results.....simple.
If I want to play games, I'll dust off the X-box..
I can't remember ever saying that. One Valentine's Day was very special, it was the birth of my first son. Best valentine I ever had.
Thanks, I agree! Lovely valentine gift.
Really depends on the couple. Not everyone is into a commercial holiday being used as a reason to be romantic. Some expect that stuff all the time, lol.
Why does someone need a Hallmark day to let them know how you feel.
Ok let’s say you have a significant other.. that person buys you nothing.. while Brenda got a vacation,!Loren got Diamonds, and Denise at least got taken out for an amazing meal..and you look at that person.. the one who is suppose to make you happy.. I’m with you. I don’t really understand that mentality. Though it is still the way it is for most.
You dont need materialistic things to make you happy, not every female is the same and alot do expect something, myself when i am with my partner it's about being with him because he wants to be with me. I'm not the type to keep up with the "joneses".
And if he gets you absolutely nothing.. you’re ok with that?
Or goes and hangs out with his friends instead?
What are you talking about I get his beard
Can't speak for all women, but in my case I truly don't care. I've married almost 33 years, and we agreed to stop the shenanigans probably 30 years ago.
