Is it unromantic to not want...

Posted by   + Show Post

Flowers and chocolates on valentines day?

Are you a valentines day type of girl...like all the cutesy and romantic stuff?

Do you get sad if you dont get flowers (and chocolates)?

We don't celebrate either! I much prefer random acts of romance istead of him having to buy me something

Quoting TigerofMu:

Flowers would be sweet, but I would prefer them on a Tuesday in May or something silly, for no reason other than because we can.  They are too expensive on Valentines Day.  And I'm trying to avoid chocolate (and sugar in general)!

I agree that random flowers are sweeter.  I appreciate anything whenever I get it, but part of me wishes he'd surprise me just because rather than it being our anniv or the Rotary was selling flowers.

No. Chocolates or flowers dont necessarily mean romantic. I dont get sad if I dont get gifts for v-day. In reality its for commercial businesses.

I like romance, I don't like cutesy. I don't feel sad if I don't get anything. For me, valentines day is just another excuse to show my hubby and kids how much I love them, but I try to do that all the time anyway.

 I will never say no to flowers or chocolate(okay, especially chocolate) but they aren't a must for Valentine's Day.  We know we love each other and we try to show each other always so we don't go all our for Valentine's Day.
