Posted:It is soon to be Valentine ... actually .. for all the shops around here, it's been valentine ever since it was no longer Xmas

I don't know what to think about valentine cause it's never been that good a day to me (pathetic love stories
Non-Https Image Link
)but most of all because of its commercial aspect which I do not like too much !that being said I love the idea of celebrating love .. only I want (and try .... dunno if I succeed

) to make everyday a Valentine's day... (yeah ... I know these kind of sentences sound so cheesy ... but remember I *am* from the country of cheese

)that just got me wondering if you people are in love and happy ? I know personal details are NONE of my business, it is rather just a general question... maybe all I meant was to take the time and ask the simple question :How are you ?

Posted:Valentines, Christmass, Halloween, they have all been reduced to a marketing gimic for companies to try to sell thigs to people using guilt as their main pry-bar. Somehow if you don't buy _____ you are a bad person (or that's how they would like you to see it).I do believe that the spirit behind these occations are worthy (except maybe Halloween, not sure on it's history) and that gifts/attention/whatever else is expected, if given in the proper spirit, can be beautiful. Buying to fullfil your social obligation to the merchandisers is meaningless thoug, and it seems (to me at least) that it is this mindframe that is taking over

If you are in love, no one should be able to tell you when your special day is. If you're generous, no one should be able to tell you when to give. Well, that's my take.

Posted:Pere, i don't know where they are ... I noticed that as soon as you start looking for them they hide behind trees or something.My advice : walk around in a tree-less place and whistle and pretend your not looking for one and when one goes by grab him and tie him and do him a little hypnotising belly dance before he can even say "Bonjiorno Principessa" (La vita e bella ... what a great movie !!!)Cass

Posted:I seem to have a sort of Valentines day curse. I have only had one relationship that has survived the wreched day. Other than that I usually lose them (or vice versa) with in a week before then. I don't seem to be the only one either. I noticed that a lot of relationships have been ending suddenly in the last week or so. I couldn't firgure it out untill someone mentioned something off hand about what they were going to do for their boyfriend on the evil day. Then it all made sense.The one reltionship that did survive it was one of those "true love" deals, that you swear will last forever and turns out to be total BS. On the plus side I did pin down the diffirence between love and lust. I also made a pact with myself that I will never stress out over a girl ever again, and I don't know if I've ever been happier. But at the moment I'm not shure if I even believe in love....... Yeah, it doesn't exist
Non-Https Image Link
So I don't celebrate, condone, or even really acknowledge the day. It's only redeeming value is those little Necco candy conversation hearts. Those things kick ass! But I feel bad every time I but them, so I try to pretend that it's a different month or something and the factories, card companies, and retailers all screwed up.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.

Posted:Love is real, SickPuppy, it's just not quite the fluffly fairy pillow the movies make it out to be.I first went out with my Fiance 8 years ago, and broke it off not because I wanted to but because there was no way at the time for it to work out with her Muslim family and my nonMuslim white skin.doing everything you can to stay with your partner or stop them leaving isn't love, that's need, and tends to be where a lot of relationship troubles happen.If you feel like doing what right for them, regardless of how it affects you, then that is what I can real love.oops, sorry if i got a bit preachy...But I'm like that at the moment...------------------Charles (INFERNO)newdolbel@hotmail.comhttp://juggling.co.nz

Posted:Not preachy. Heartfelt. I am trying to find words to express what I am going through at the moment, without much success. But it comes down to what you said. If you have to try that hard to make things work, it must mean it is not working... ;(Sorry to depress, I think I need to take a break from this love bollocks for a bit.

Posted:cass - working on that cream, but t is pretty tough to lose! In regards to how it "works" I don't think there is a standard method, but the following is a story on what I did one year.... **dream sequence begins**There was a girl I liked in high school that moved away just before our final year. I never told her that I liked her, and that is the only regret I have of my whole life. She left a few weeks before valentines day so I sent her a card and made this poem for her:If I had 3 wishes,I'd wish you were hereI'd wish you came backI'd wish you were nearBut they won't come trueThese wishes of mineSo please accept thisAnd be my Valentine.

Posted:Charles, I am very moved by your story.I have been in a quite similar situation in the past but it did not work out.For a while I've put the blame on distance / religion issues bla bla bla ... but I found out that it was just not the right person and I know that when you love you can move mountains for the person you love. And I totally agree with the fact that wanting the otehr's happiness and respecting him / her is what i call love too...One thing though : there is a difference between forcing things and giving up too easily. I also dislike people giving up on someone just because it is not "convenient"...Bendy, lovely poem...

Posted:I have to disagree with the sometimes if you are working too hard, it just isn't working out thing. With PWB in fact. We have had some ****really**** hard times, from my perspective. And there have been many times when I simply thought it would not work out and that leaving might be best, but I am a total glutton for punishment and I stayed, and we worked. We worked very hard for years. Sometimes we took time away from each other. And sometimes we spent hours trying to figure things out. In the end, it was worth it. I agree there are times when you need to just give up the ghost. I loved my ex-boyfriends as well, a couple of them very much. But I was naive when I realized all I had was love for a one, and that my love for the others wasn't growing and we weren't elvolving together. Nicci said "Let their be seperation in your togetherness, for two trees which stand close but apart do not struggle to find light. They grow seperate but together." I found this in PWB. I really, strongly did not like him at first. Our friendship grew from the ground up and has continued to do so, and we have each grown seperately as well. If you were to ever meet us, you would be amazed at exactly how little we are alike. He is when I realized that finding someone complimented my strengths and weaknesses was more important to me than finding someone like me, or someone I was immediately attracted to, or even liked. That was when I realized he was worth the time and work, and the tears. Where I used to cry tears of pain from angst and frustration, I now cry tears of joy and love. If you find the right person, the work and patience are well worth it.

Posted:Charles,That whole love doesn't exist crack was a joke from a somewhat bitter SickpupPy. I still love the girl in question very deeply. I want nothing but the best for her (even though she isn't doing anything that is healthy for her). I think of her often and fondly, and I can still recall the way she smelled laying next to me at night. I am quite convinced that I will always love her (even though if I saw her again I might very well spit in her face
Non-Https Image Link
)It was in my weeks and months of the inavoidable post break up introspection that I finally realized the difference between love and lust. I discoverd a lot in that time, not the least of which being that sleeping with your ex's best friend is one of the most vindicating expeiriances a man can partake in after a painful break up (espeacially when her best friend is a very attractive stripper who could suck start a Harley if she was so inclined

)But I still stand by my statment that the only good thing about Valentines Day is those little Necco candy hearts. All the rest is total crap.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.[This message has been edited by SickpuPpy (edited 09 February 2002).]

Posted:hmph. last V-day i broke up with my boyfriend. He stood me up (well, he called me on my mobile to say he couldnt make it, he was sick, and in the middle of a packed train i screamed 'WHAT?! YOURE STANDING ME UP?! Fine, thats it! I dont want to see you ever again!'. got lots of stunned looks). got back together with him the next day. were together/broken up/together/broken up for months.and now hes engaged and i dont care. this V-day I'm getting a card delivered at school from my (female) friend, and i'm doing the same for her (at a different school). It should be a laugh, and ive already had the lesbian rumour before and lived it down, so yeah, i cant wait! i hope i get a smutty card!oh, and im sending a card to a friend who's just moved to sydney. we got 'engaged' on sat. night, coz if he's married he gets more youth allowance.i think the *true* meaning of valentines passed me by.
