Idk wtf to get my gf of three years. She's always complaining about me being simple and not getting flowers. I'm thinking of getting her some studs, but then I think about how I could buy myself a nice plane ticket and go on vacation to a tropical country.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
Unless you live in Chicago, don't eat at Mortons.
I've never had a bad meal at any of the ones I've been to in DC, Nova or Boston. I did not enjoy my experience at King of Prussia, but that was less food and more service. Where else would you recommend for a good steak in downtown/dupont area of DC? I'm not going to the Palm. My other choice was Prime Rib.
vowels, maybe a few consonants sprinkled in.
Have you been to Bourbon Steak? I love that place.
I'd also recommend J&G's (Jean-Georges Vongerichten) or BLT. If you want more of the classic DC feel, you can also do Charlie Palmers.
Morton's is fine, I just encourage people to avoid the big corporate national chains, because there are so many great options that need the business more.
I've managed to turn Valentine's day into a running joke with my wife- we dress up fancy and go to a fast food take out every year.
Last year I upped the ante and brought fake flowers and battery flicker candles for our sit down meal at Wendy's.
It's fun and the looks we get from the workers at the empty restaurants are priceless.
My gf is totally down with flowers from TJ and cooking at home for the 14th. I really can't ask for more.
Holy high horse, Batman!
I love being called a turd by someone who doesn't know me, my wife, our relationship, or 90% of the other people posting in this thread because I don't want to spend money on a Hallmark holiday because society tells me I'm a turd for not doing it.
I think we can all agree that if you suck at surprising your wife during the year, Valentine's Day is as good a day as any to try to make up for it. If you're doing it because you both want to do that, then that's great. If you're doing it out of some stupid sense of obligation/expectation, then you (both) should probably be looking in the mirror.
My anniversary with current GF is the 15th, so I guess I luck out on it this year.
Ugh, STFU already.
Back on point: I am married to quite possibly the least romantic human being alive. I completely skate Valentine's Day. I've asked her a million times whether she's just saying it and she assures me that she just doesn't care about the contrived day.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
Adults are doing monthly anniversaries now? I thought that ended in high school.
I set the precedent with the wife early on. Thankfully, she doesnt care, so we enjoy a nice evening at home.
I have an awesome gf that doesn't like giving gifts for valentines day. We'll probably go out to eat that weekend somewhere semi-fancy, but that's just as much a treat for me as it is for her
I just embarrassed myself with this post
i like how i didn't address anyone in particular and yet some of you took it so personally. holy defensiveness, batman!
and i have no "expectations" for valentine's day or any other day. but my bf and i enjoy the day and enjoy getting each other a gift.
don't forget your daughters.
But...doesn't that just mean she actually does care? Has your head exploded?
"Defensive" and "calling out poor arguments" aren't the same thing.
This thread just reminded me to make some dinner reservations. Thanks guys.
(Count me in as someone who doesn't care about this day and isn't dating someone who does.)
That would be a mensiversary. Try to keep up, and don't hate because you can't plan your shit as well as I do.
My poor father...
Jan: My moms birthday. Their Anniversary,
Feb: Valentines day.

So for a first date Valentine's Day (lol @ me), what do I do? Dinner at a restaurant.. right. Do I show up with a rose or look like a douchebag?
What would one expect for something like this? Background is this chick is a bartender at a dive I frequent.. hardly know her but she was giving me some sob story about how V-Day always blows for her and she's the rocker/punk type.
That's a tough one. It's difficult to go out to conventional places for VDay even if you both have horrible expectations. Sounds like this girl is a little edgy, so if you're creative you might be able to pull it off in spades. Think about things to do other than eat somewhere, and you might be in good shape.
WTF? I just had to look that up. Who the $*%& celebrates mensiversaries?
Agreed, that's why I was asking.
I may just grill something and have her over for drinks or something. No expectations... nothing too crazy.
Better then mensesversaries amirite?
