    Nothing happened this Valentine's Day, either. I guess it's because I don't talk to guys in the first place. I need to make more of an effort.

    Yet another valentines/birthday for me gone by. I look forward to a future where girls actually dig artsy/awesome/warm hearted visionary cats like myself.

    I'm just glad that Valentine's Day is over. It's a shame holiday that was created by women who weren't satisfied with their Christmas gifts. Holy smokes, I think I just experienced deja-vu considering that I think I said that already.

    I read this, and I think to myself "Thank God Sarge isn't desperate". I've known girls who are so desperate, they'll go out with the first random guy to come up and start hitting on them.

    I didn't know you were gay, but I'm confused if shes Catholic, why is she trying to send you to a synagogue? I thought synagogues were places of worship for Jews not Catholics? :confused:

    Technically it was created due to a martyr but of course that's gotten completely lost, heh.

    I have too much to deal with that is much more important than having a boyfriend. And you wanna know something sad? I did not feel much of a connection with my ex. Heck, we never even said "I love you." to each other. The most we did was hug. I probably would have broken up with him sooner if it weren't for the fact he was my dad's co-worker :o

    I'm bi, actually. For many people, non-straight=gay. And, yes, it is baffling that she wanted me to go to a synagogue when neither she nor I are Jewish. Maybe she wanted to get me into a Godbox any way she could, and maybe she wanted me to find dates there. Probably both--she couldn't wrap her head around the idea that I'm content being a single atheist. *shrug* At least she wasn't beating me over the head with a Bible, which is what happens all too often in the Deep South.

    I'm beaten over the head because I'm not an uber christian who goes to church every week. Someone even called my dad the antichrist reincarnate. I do indeed live in the south so I know all about those people :smirk:

    Yeah, it's odd but that's like a lot of holidays

    Its kinda sad how so many holidays with deep meanings have gone so commercialized and are now all about the stuff :/

    Yeah.. I hate the whole "It was created by women to get more stuff" thing...

    I happen to know by being forced to see so many romance animes ($%^#!! Gimme my freaking Fist of the North Star!) that there are 2 specific holidays in Japan... White Day and their version of Valentines day. Their Valentines day is when women give MEN chocolates (or gifts)... White Day (which really WAS the product of the candy corporations in their case) is when men pay those women back by giving them candy and or gifts.

    So basically, you get 2 days of being lonely over there. That's probably why there's so much...echehmmmm...eh... hentai that lonely people buy over there...

    In Korea, there's 3 days: Black Day, where you celebrate being single by going to a chinese restaurant and ordering the black bean sauce noodles. Lots of people follow this tradition, so despite not getting chocolate or a significant other, you're never lonely on that day, whether with friends or making new ones.
    (But since this is mostly a guy's holiday, you tend to hear a lot of bromantic drunken singing)
    Korean Americans just celebrate Black Day on the same day as Valentine's day.

    I still think if singles want to celebrate Valentines ironically (or this Black Day), what we REALLY need to do is secretly snicker behind the backs of couples with greedy, uncontrollable, misbehaving kids that clearly didn't want them. And the fact that half the time the mother looks like she was the high school...erhhherm... and now she's starting to become a slubby, sweatsuit wearing, genderless blob... you know the girls that treated everyone terribly. Not to mention the knuckleheads that just randomly grab stuff at 5 PM to try to make it look like they didn't forget.

    In other words, don't feel that you're sad that you're single... laugh at the mild misfortune of those who are. Not to their faces, of course. That's rude.

    Sounds mean, but the ones that really hit it off and are in great relationships laugh at those who are single and lonely on those days.

    Ah, but you're forgetting the most important part - GIRICHOKO. Basically you're obligated to give chocolate to the people you interact with on a daily basis, even if you couldn't care less about them. So you get stuff whether people find you attractive or not. :D

    And really, that's the way we SHOULD be doing it. Why pick and choose when you can give chocolate to everybody? Hey, there's some dude on the street. GIVE HIM SOME CHOCOLATE. That guy has a sweet hat. CHOCOLATE FOR HIM. Janitor here to wipe the tables? HERE, HAVE SOME CHOCOLATE.

    Never happens to Ataru... but then that's a bad example right there. :crazy:

    There was a fun chapter of Futaba-Kun Change about giri-choco. But I'd be surprised if anyone here but me had heard of that manga.
