    Valentine greetings

    Would anyone like to exchange Valentine greetings on here?
    Or maybe share their Valentine Day experiences?
    It is tomorrow, after all!


    My 'valentine' is in the US - and we won't be meeting again until probably late September/October of this year.
    However, I'm open to other flirtations - or ...??

    So, suppose I start by simply wishing all the lovely ladies on here (whether in a relationship or unattached) a VERY HAPPY VALENTINE DAY!!

    I only like the idea of Valentine's Day as the date on which secret admirers traditionally send anonymous, or semi-anonymous, cards to the unwitting objects of their affection. That's how I first knew it as a child, and the idea of that particular clandestine and thrilling activity is still somewhat magical to me (notwithstanding our more modern sensibilities relating to stalking!)

    Other than that, sadly I find the whole affair as tawdry and overly-commercial as the way we treat Christmas, Halloween and Easter.

    This idea that you should show affection to your significant other on a particular day of the year is faintly depressing - witness the queues of men who will be standing in shops tomorrow clutching their hastily-chosen cards and token gifts, and the fact that the restaurants will be packed out with couples in the evening. For me, the behaviour that the Valentine's Day vendors tell us we should be indulging in is the very antithesis of romance... and yet so many of us will feel compelled to fall in line with it, lest we be thought unromantic.

    Anyway, that's just curmudgeonly ol' Lurky having a gripe. So, as you were. And Happy Valentine's Day to them wot believe in it.

    So any cheapskates been brave/foolish enough to buy a bunch of flowers from the local BP garage on their way home? You know the ones, slightly wilting and drooping, (the flowers that is not the bloke !!! ) that are on special offer in a tatty old bucket by the side of the petrol pumps. Don't forget when she takes in the beautiful scent it will be the aroma of petrol and diesel !!!!!
    And what was the reaction ?? Just wondering

    Well I for one love romantic gestures at any time of the year and it's nice when someones shows it. A sub friend of mine brought me a dozen red roses to my house this afternoon and they are in my living room looking gorgeous, nice to be thought of today.

    When you share your life with someone but you're not married to each other, you can use Valentines Day as a sort of surrogate for a wedding anniversary. I see it as an opportunity to remind the other person that they are loved/appreciated/have a nice bottom.

    Why not surprise your wife or girlfriend with a good spanking this Valentines Day?

    I’m not really fussed about Valentine’s ay. It’s just another example of the hijacking of popular custom. I show my ‘love’ by preparing my ‘love’ meals every day. The adverts that I’ve seen trying to persuade me to buy roses etc are all focused on one type or relationship (male/female) to the exclusion of single sex forms.

    Not every relationship is entered into voluntarily. Forced marriage is very common globally and is also found in the UK. Forced marriage is a hidden crime and there are an average of over a 1000 per year and very few prosecutions. Statistics and further information available here:

    What does a single red rose really say ?

    You stingy tight ******* !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    No, Its got to be a bunch of at least a dozen, or a huge box of chocolates, or maybe both even !! anything less could be dodgy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    (Dont worry, I'm only joking, honestly, if you have just bought your beloved a single red rose )

    Even Hallmark and Clinton’s now have same-sex Valentine cards, and not even on the top shelf.

    The last time I was in a same-sex Valentine-giving sort of relationship was about seven years ago, and even then you could find it if you looked. Now we’re divorced we just send each other marmalade. Not for Valentine’s.

    Im not sure a Valentine thread is the right place for a discussion of forced marriage, though it’s a very good and important discussion to have.

    As an ex florist, it was one of the main 'events' of the year. Never wanted to another red rose again . Still fishing thorns out of hands two weeks later. Tried to get customers to think differently rather dozen red roses. It's better in odd numbers flowers in a vase, 3, 5 etc
    And yes, always some people coming in gone six, in a panic. It's the same day every year...
    One rose is lovely. Not cheap. One rose one heart.....

    Im not sure a Valentine thread is the right place for a discussion of forced marriage.
    You may be right. however, there is another side to all this cloying, saccharine sentimentality and I suspect that more people will read a thread about Valentine’s Day then about forced marriages.

    My love's bum is like a raw red rose

    That's newly stung each swing
    My love's bum is like a malady
    That happens every spring

    And I will lash thee still, my dear

    'Till all thy sins, awry:
    Yes, I will lash thee still my love
    Till all thy tears run dry
    Till all thy tears run dry, my love
    And the cheeks' red blood shall run


    So fare thee ill, my only love

    And fare thee ill - but smile!
    And you will cum again my love

    Though 'twere ten thousand more stokes, vile!

    12 red roses in Aldi and Lidl were 5, and I would have been more than happy with just a single bloom!
