It's always been hard on me since it's forced me to believe in astrology. Valentines day is exactly opposite my birthday, and bad things like spontaneous nosebleeds tend to happen to me.

The only consolation is that an August birthday means my day doesn't have to compete with ANY BS holidays. Of course it also always meant that summer vacation was essentially over.

I feel I should get used to the idea that I may never be married, have a family and find true love, that saddens me, but that may be the cards that were dealt to me anyways. Gotta play um I guess.

What's wrong with being single. Ask any married man that's married to a nagging wife, got three kids got to work over 40 hours a week to support, and has to ask for permission to watch sports or do something he likes from the Misses, and I bet you they wish they were single.

I think lot you guys have a very overly-romantic view on relationships, marriage, and even love.

Be happy with your freedom, having your own identiy, your space. Relationships, even for non Aspies, are a LOT of work. Eventually what it boils down to in long run is, IS THE EFFORT, HASSLE, AND WORK worth WHAT YOU GET BACK FROM RELATIONSHIP. In most divorces, the answer is a no.

I just want someone to shair my life with and have a few kids with, I have no problem giving up my freedom and working all the time if it means providing for my family and letting them live well.

I don't think Valentine's Day is very romantic. But that's just me.

from what i can gather, most NTs hate valentines day too. it is pretty much universally hated, apart from by businesses that produce chocolate, jewellary, perfumes etc, and restaurant owners.

I don't really mind the Valentine's Day season, but that is only because my birthday is 4 days before valentines day. :D

I mostly didn't notice it.

Once in school everyone was exchanging cards except me and I didn't really know what it was about. People would give several cards to different people. I thought I might as well try, so I picked a girl at random who happened to be called Lori. I made her a card, it said 'Happy Valentine Lori' and drew a lorry (truck) underneath. She said thanks.

I don't like V-Day because

1. I'm single

2. It's a bunch of capitalist BS :P
