Found 12th Feb
What's your plans, peeps?

Are you the romantic type, planning a nice surprise for her/him, the usual candlelit dinner, choccies, flowers, proposal, or something a bit more extra special?

My husband and the love of my life died three years ago so there will be no flowers/choccies/diamonds going on here. I will however be going to visit the new love of my life. He is six weeks old and has four legs and a tail. We get to bring him home beginning of March. Can't wait.

Sad, but true thus far in the thread.
To me valentines day is really for kids/teenagers.
The wife and I are off for a day out at Duxford War Museum. Looking forward to it.
Sly comments from people that should mind their own business.
A Take away, and instead of her going for it, I'll have it delivered.
I remember when we were newly married I took her to an amazing French restaurant we chanced upon in Edinburgh, we were youngsters in a room full of suits and business types, the caring and perceptive staff guided us to a small table and chairs at a window which looked out onto the most stunning views of the city topped by a castle.
The meal and the whole experience was fantastic; one of the best memories of my life, my wife looked stunningly beautiful, like a young Audrey Hepburn.

No need for us to visit such places, but Edinburgh is an amazing city, very similar in many ways to York re history, etc. Some cities have an air of romance about them, and I'd say Edinburgh and York are two such cities.

They are the two main places my other half works, Edinburgh last week and York this week.

I worked in Edinburgh for a few years but it is about 30 miles from my house so not ideal, i do like a visit sometimes though.

Claim the Wuntu offers at 8am (which include Cineworld tickets and Rakuten codes), watch the Winter Olympics, then go to Subway at lunchtime to claim the 'buy one 6'' get one free' offer, then play on the Switch, and finally watch Real Madrid vs PSG UEFA Champions League
I am going to subway BUT not with him!
I never give him anything because he doesn't deserve it. Times need to change for good now
Watching Champions League Football.

C'mon Real Madrid.

Not much. Might let her watch the soaps on the big telly, instead of in the kitchen. Just see how it pans out first.
Was planning on going to the cinema but our local has only two choices on in the evening, neither of which do we both want to watch. I don't even know why as it is a big multiplex with plenty of screens.

Never say never, Biddy.

Everybody under the age of sixty thinks it's difficult to hook up - in reality it isn't.

We all sort of figure it out as we get older - it's like one of those situations where you think something's impossible until you do it then realise;' 'Crikey, that was so simple, why the heck did I think it was so difficult?

If I could offer any advice I'd say just be yourself, go to places you like, do stuff you like, as you enjoy these things you'll be happier with life and happier with yourself, that's usually when potential partners appear on the scene.

And, if you like someone try to be friends with them first - that's very important. Becoming friends should always be your first priority, if it moves onto something else praise God, but being friends is a first a foremost requirement (it's really important to like the person you love). So go ahead and ask them out as friends - just go ahead and do it, for the love of God, life is too short, stop messing about and just ask them if they'd like to join you for a coffee/drink/movie etc. If they say no, that's fine, maybe some other time, but always stay friendly. Lastly, don't ever go looking for love, understand that love is looking for you and if you keep moving it makes it harder for love to find you.
You really think Biddy needs this kind of advice?

It’s not difficult? Oh. So this pie chart applies to myself then?

Some very good advice there, T2H. Just so you know though, I won’t really be crying like Ralph.

I’m happy enough with my pugs anyway. Man’s best friend and all that.

Pancakes.

Something has come up tomorrow night so pancake day is replacing Valentines for us.
There a certain thing I'm wanting, they only couple of quid and I've been hinting for a few years now to receive on Valentines Day. Instead I know he got me a ring as he asked to take a ring with him shopping because he can't just discretely take a ring and put it back....defeats object really, its daft also cos I also know he should have just spent the money on paying a bill.... Meanwhile I got him a gift from 70% sale at Boots.

You forget that us men are thick. You should get shot of him for trying to get something that he thinks would be special for you. Get someone instead who will take you for granted and get you oven gloves or something.

Any chance he knows you know he took the ring?

Yeh I just rather him not bought a ring or anything expensive as his money could been spent on something he needed to pay for. Funnily enough I saw some tea towels and oven gloves I wanted in Sainsbury's yesterday,to me something more practical better.

I like the ring he chose,lucky for me he got the sweets I wanted, am vegetarian and M&S only have these at Valentine's... gelatine sweets are easier to find these days but still. I'd been totally just happy with the sweets. I also know he made the effort to buy the other item I wanted but none around so I'm totally happy lol. He says he liked what I got him, courtesy of Boots 70% sale....
I don't bother with all that hearts and flowers nonsense anymore. I bought her a lovely card a couple of years ago and she threw me a look that would curdle milk. She should think herself lucky, at least I remembered.
