What Do Guys Want for Valentine’s Day?

valentines day parcelValentine’s Day is one month from today and I would love for any male readers of DW to weigh in on what YOU would like for Valentine’s Day (assuming you have a special someone in your life to give you something, and hypothetically if you don’t, although who knows — it’s still a month away and anything could happen). Are you hoping for tickets to a show? New music? New clothes? Something good to eat? A new gadget? Something to make you smell good? Something to make you look good? Sex, please and thank you very much? Tell us in the comments or email me at [email protected] and I will share some of answers in an upcoming gift guide. Merci!

    Honestly? Probably for their mates to NOT make it such a big fucking deal…

      I think you’re right! After reading this post, I asked my husband “What would you want for Valentine’s Day?’ and he quickly came back with “to not have to celebrate it.” haha.

      I doubt we will do anything but maybe exchange chocolates.

    I would like to not be made to feel like the biggest tool in the universe for not “going to Jared”. In one breath she will tell me we can’t afford it, then the next she will be all “ooh” and “aah” over some bling on TV. Make up my mind please.

    A FUN romp in the sack (without all the emotional baggage) wouldn’t go amiss either.

      I loathe the Jared commercials. Their overall tone is like nails to the chalkboard of the soul.

    Unfortunately or maybe fortunately, my dad’s birthday is valentine’s day, so I generally get a free pass on having to do anything for anyone.

    After today’s deleted discussion I decided to call off Valentines Day! I told Dave that it’s a waste of money and I’d rather him get me cheap grocery store flowers randomly than buy me overpriced VDay flowers. He asked me like 5 times if I meant it. I told him I’d put it in writing if he wanted, but he said that wasn’t necessary. We shook on it instead.

      We’re still doing cards this year, since I already bought his, but I told him next year we can ditch the cards, too! It’s a little freeing to not have to worry about it.

    Today’s deleted discussion made me decide to carefully ask the girl I started dating about a month ago (long distance, sigh) how she would feel if I sent her a card (also more, but I just said card) for “that day a month from now.” She was so excited and said she wanted to send me stuff “at least for your birthday” but she was afraid to ask. Yay on this discussion for reminding me to figure out expectations! She’s getting me something – no idea what – and I’m sending a small care package. It’s so exciting.

    Flowers, Nutella, and sex, just like I do every year.

    I was conceived on Valentines night (or was it morning) so the day is meaningful to me. My parents had sex that day and I saw the world for the first time on Nov. 13. The bottom line is that Feb. 14th is to me all about making whoopee. Dinner, flowers, diamonds, a new car, whatever it takes. If not for the consequences I’d like to have an affair which isn’t going to happen but we’re talking fantasy here. This can be roll played with your main partner and both of you need to be into it. Make it a real date, trim your pubes, dress up nicely in something easy to get out of and make a reservation at a romantic spa hotel. Get a massage to hype your nerve ganglia, just enough wine to numb your inhibitions (careful to not get too drunk) and try to forget that you’ve been “together” before and want to really badly.
