I always get SO something and then he feels awkward and gives me something later. This year he's planning something and told me not to get him anything but I'd feel awkward if I didn't.
So...awkward either way.

I think if known issues are in the way, like financially one person cant afford its its acceptable. But if one person just didnt want or care to do something for the other its pretty awkward.

Quoting KNZ.:" sooo do you guys both do something for valentine's? or both not do something?"


It varies. :lol:



Nothing is awkward in our relationship...really. Well, it's a bit awkward to walk in on him rubbing one out.

It depends on the people in the relationship, IMO.

not awkward.



gifts are about giving. not receiving. there's no guarantee / expectation in our household of valentines anything, b/c we celebrate love by having a good relationship and such, hallmark can't touch this.

I always make his gifts, something from the kids, something from us.
But i just like it for another reason to do a project :D
Jason gives gifts but i mean, life in general between us gets pretty awkward at times, ha.

:D valentine's day here is focused mostly on the kiddos, ha. like, corny heart shaped food and etc.



Dude cares more about 'gifts' than i do. We did a painting for him this year and then 2 blown up photos of the kids v-day pictures i took. Soooo kinda like gifts for the house :)
i thought of this today cos he was sounding oddly worried about what he got me earlier 'n i told him no need to. (i'm really just excited about the stuff with the kiddos :D)

Not awkward at all for us. We NEVER expect gifts from one another, but greatly appreciate when we recieve one. Some years I'll gift him and some years I don't, same goes for him. We do special things and give special things to each other when the thought comes to mind, not when the calendar says Feb.14.



This Feb 14 I am cooking us a nice juicy steak dinner and plan to cuddle on the couch and do some sex later, I like to gift him when I want too not just cause I am "suppose" too on V-day (which, sorry, no offense is a silly day,imo) and he is the same. It could be a reg ole Tuesday and he'll surprise me with flowers or whatever, and that too me is more sweet and surprising than the thinking that a lot of people have "Oh its V-day, gotta buy him/her something." Not my thing.
