What Guys Do When They’re Alone On Valentine’s Day

When Feb. 14 looms over us like the grim specter of Death itself, men react in a rational way: We do everything that we possibly can to find someone to date us as soon as possible. Regardless of whether we like, dislike, or want to kill a person, we’ll go out with her rather than spend Valentine’s Day alone.

Sure, most of us are aware that it’s a corporate holiday designed to sap money from consumer pockets into the pockets of the greeting card, flower, and pornography industries. However, its secondary function is to make a good half of society feel lonely and depressed for not joining in. Guys are hit pretty hard. Here’s how our average Valentine’s Day goes when we’re single … Keep reading »

UPDATE!The winner of the Bare Necessities gift card is wikid for this comment:

When shopping for lingerie the most important rule I follow is this: Does it turn me on to think about wearing it? This encompasses a few things: is it comfortable? Is it flattering? Do I feel sexy in it? Will my partner like it? But most of all it should reflect your desires and fantasies. Ultimately, lingerie is a way to escape to Sexyville and if it doesn’t have the gas to get you there, then you and your partner are both going to be stranded.

Debate This: Does Valentine’s Day Suck?

It doesn’t matter whether you have a significant other or not, there’s no avoiding Valentine’s Day’s red roses, candy hearts, sexy lingerie, or cheesy cards (about one billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, according to the Greeting Card Association). So we asked two writers whether they think the holiday is totally lame or super awesome, after the jump. Keep reading »

Handling Valentine’s Day With A Not-So-Serious Boyfriend

Valentine’s Day is the holiday of love (or crass commercialism, depending on whom you talk to). However, things can get a little bit awkward when Feb. 14 rolls around and you’ve been dating someone very casually. There’s a lot of pressure on V-Day to bring a relationship to the next level, but sometimes you’re just not ready for that.

Of course, you could fake your own death. However, you might not have access to a boat and enough dynamite to get the job done correctly. In these rare situations, you’ve got to do what you can to tone down the date itself, in order to avoid any awkwardness. Here are a few tips to help you out. Keep reading »

UPDATE! The winner of the Urban Outfitters V-Day prize pack is LadyMacBeth for this comment:

I have plenty of gut wrenchingly shameful stories, but anyone from my area could put me and my screen name together. It’s a small state and my exceptional creativity combined with my lack of self-preservation and poor judgment means I’m going to cling to the veil of anonymity. Here’s something that I’m not proud of, but hey, it worked…

When a certain, younger version of my PA moved into my dorm I cleverly deduced from the number of concert t-shirts he wore that he was a fan of something called NIN.  Went and got me a CD and played it with my dormroom door open so he would hear as he passed and hopefully notice. Of course he did.  The pained look on my face (I listened only to country music and filk at that point in time.) probably gave me away.  He said he knew something was up when I told him I found the CD relaxing.

He was a CS major and very willing to share software.  I was the first person in my family to get her own computer and I was thrilled by this – I’d been doing just fine on the Works program that came with the computer but after a two sentence conversation with the future PA I suddenly agreed that I needed something called Office installed on my computer. But, of course, I’d never done that kind of thing before and had no idea how to go about it…

A few months more of these “clever” schemes and finally our entire dorm took pity on my obviousness and his oblivion and took drastic measures. We’ll have been together 16 years this week.

Thanks for all your comments! Keep reading »
