D.C., I have never really thought about the rituals of Valentines Day before, but I guess your comments make sense. Every year, couples do the same things on Valentines Day--dinner, roses, chocolates, lingerie, or jewelry. I am not sure I would go as far as asking my husband not to celebrate Valentines Day, but he could me more romantic and creative. I would be on top of the world if he sent me love letters in the mail, but I know that would never happen!! One thing I have learned from being married is that men are just who they are.

DGauntlett, where were you when I was single for so many years? I could have used some of your ideas. I do not care what anyone says, being single on Valentines Day totally sucks. During my single life, my Valentines routine was to stay home and watch romantic movies--I have probably seen the movie Love Actually a thousand times--yes, I know that it is a movie about Christmas, but I also think it represents Valentines Day.

DGauntlett and D.C.--I honestly cannot remember, it might have been me, but some time ago, someone commented that someone should write a duppydom about romance. God bless my husband. He tries, but when it comes to romance, he could definitely use some help. D.C., your comment is the closest thing to an article--I am going to print both the duppydom and your comments and force my husband to read them. Thank you for writing this duppydom DGauntlett--I wished I saw it yesterday and I hope your day was special.

DGauntlett--I will assume that my comments will not be popular, nonetheless, here goes. I stopped celebrating Cupid Day years ago. I have come to the realization, that Cupid Day is for amateur romantics. If you are truly enamored with your special person, you should be engaging in romantic behaviors over the entire year, not just one day of the year. Here are some romantic designs that I recommend: regularly send her love letters via the mail; routinely leave her very sexy messages on her voice mail; send her a formal invite to a naked dinner for you; surprise her with a package filled with her favorite lingerie; make arrangements with your local florist to send her flowers on a whim; send flowers to her workplace so all her coworkers know…; and my favorite--convince her that your friend is in town and the two of you are invited to meet him for drinks at his hotel. When you arrive, let her know why she is really there--she has been working late at work for many weeks and she deserves a solo weekend of R&R. Give her a candle-lit bubble bath, then a message, then a hug and a kiss, and make your exit--and of course, leave your credit card so she can buy whatever hotel offerings her heart desires….So, for all the men out there who still celebrate Cupid Day…if you still insist on being an amateur romantic, ditch the dinner and box of chocolates…at least be a bit more creative this year. Thanks DGauntlett, good read.

DGauntlett, I like your take on Valentines Day. Why does the celebration have to pertain only to couples? Just because you are momentarily single, does not mean you do not know love or embrace love. Why not express that love toward yourself? I love the sentiment. Happy Cupid Day 2020.

dgauntett, I agree, the single/divorced people need to stick together. Wow, it is impressive how many creative ideas you have come up with for celebrating Cupid Day. Right now, the only love in my life is my son (my little man), so I will shower him with love. I know that Cupid is about romantic love, but I also know that there is no purer love that the love of your child--so Happy Cupid Day to him and to everyone!!

DGAUNTLETT, the word oneness made me think--are their holidays or occasions that celebrate being single? When I was single, Valentines Day was the worst. It was like Cupid was laughing at me. The one day Cupid set aside for couples, and there I was being single. DGAUNTLETT, l love all your ideas. I also think that single or not, we should always remember to love ourselves. Awesome duppydom. Happy Valentines Day to you too :-)
