We stopped on the way to buy groceries and he threw a $5 card with an image of a kid holding roses into the cart when I wasn't looking. I wound up paying for it. He gave it to me unsigned, without even bothering to put it in the envelope.


Hahaha that is hilarious, no disrespect to you though. I mean... you also pay the bills too? Sorry that happened, but I think you can do A LOT better imho. I'm only laughing at how pathetic a move like that is... The nerve!!!

You're fine. You needed to vent and it's better than keeping it in. Has he always been that way?

It's all about the gift.. whether you admit it or not.
Just let the guy go. It's not fair to him to be "thinking about it". He'll have more time to fish, and you can play on your lap top undisturbed.

Maybe we NEED these holidays to show us who or what we are dating? I am alone and life is much better for me now. I got tired of the mistreatment,better to go it alone and have peace.

I got up early and made my Sweet Lady wife of 39 years a breakfast of Blackberry-Stuffed French toast. Dinner was provided by me, at home, by candlelight. I gave her 2 1/2 dozen roses, a box of chocolate-dipped strawberries, and a basketful of various goodies from local specialty stores.



Yeah right just see where that gets ya.....brown noser....!

Play? As in "working for a living to pay the rent, utilities, cable, etc.?" And "all about the gift?" Try reading a post before you respond.

In fairness, yes. I just didn't want to acknowledge it. And, thanks. This is hard.

My husband and I have been married 26 years now, we were married on Valentine's day so we can kind of almost kill 2 birds with one stone.

We usually just got out to dinner, but this year I didn't feel like facing the crowds and the thought of eating restaurant quality food when my own home cooking tastes better and is healthier for us, we opted to stay home this year, we did have a bottle of wine with our dinner and husband had bought me a huge red velvet fake rose and candy the week before.

I thin it made him nervous that i just wanted to stay home as he kept asking me if I was sure of my decisions so that he would not have to worry about me changing my mind about staying home.

It was nice and peaceful to just stay home and the food was great too!

I had a full day planned that was fun for him...told him about my plans for damn near a week.....got him his favorite chocolates and a hand embellished card....left em on night stand for when he woke up

stompped his feet and bitched...didnt do anything special, he didnt even bother with a card....weve been married 7yrs.....

chalk it up to hes having an episode...acting like a douche, but then again he spent all that time we could of had fun on Internet fourms being selfish..it wouldnt be such a big deal if we hadnt celebrated every year and that we had plans and he made 0 effort....



vday sucks....thanks for allowing me to vent a bit...being an angry wifey isnt easy!

Skid, I just don't know. As you can imagine, he has many more "issues" than just the ones that arose last weekend. I've offered to go to counseling with him, and suggested that he talk with someone -- anyone. He says he'll go but never does. I think it's going to come down to my setting a timeframe by which he starts to get some help and if he still doesn't do it, then just cutting him loose. I really dislike ultimatums but I don't see any way around it.

I don't have a significant other. Valentine's Day is one of the most annoying holidays when you are single.

I'm sorry to hear that, Daughter. Most holidays...Christmas, V-Day, etc. tend to bring out the worst in people who have issues. It's like putting the relationship under a high-powered microscope for a short time. I hope he treats you better! Hugs.

Wow, I am simply amazed at the thoughtlessness of your remarks.

"It's all about the gift. Whether you admit it or not." That is SO untrue! If he had just taken a moment and said something nice, gave me a kiss or maybe even rubbed my sore shoulders for a moment after my 80-hour work week, I'd have been happy. I've never cared for gifts.

"Play on my laptop?" I worked. I'm a writer, and the laptop is my work tool.

"More time for fishing?" Probably not, when he suddenly has to pay his own rent, utilities and other bills.

Please take your snap judgments about people and things you don't know, and insert them forthwith into an orifice devoid of solar radiation.

The wife and I got married on Dec 18 2014 so this was our first Valentines as husband and wife.

21 year old child step son digs through stuff in my bedroom where I had her Valentines candy safely hidden away and steals it eats it all then lies about doing it.

It doesn't sound like he really wants to make it work. It sounds like he thinks he found a free ride and is intent on milking it. I could just be cynical but that's what it sounds like. Sometimes you have to let people go, no matter how it hurts to do so. It sucks but is it any worse than being lonely in a relationship?

Yes, Skid. I think you're right. Maybe this is what I need? Pretend Boyfriend

Now, that's for the truly desperate. I wouldn't be jumping into anything right off the bat after it's over. Take time to get to know yourself again. Take stock of who you are now and what you want. It's just my advice. You'll find someone.
