My boyfriend got me nothing for Valentine’s Day ?

I got my boyfriend of 1yr all his Valentine’s Day gifts a month in advance and gave them to him shortly after, cause I was just so excited.. I went al out with candies and snacks.. he got me nothing. We discussed how I wanted to go out for Valentine’s Day and he was completely on board till a couple days ago.. he said he wants to save the rest of his money to buy a car.. he can do that next time he gets payed.. this is a Holliday.. this is something I already bought and gave him gifts for... he’s acting like I’m selfish, ungrateful, and saying that nothing he does will ever be good enough for me. My standards are not high, but I expect to celebrate the one day of the year where you’re shown exactly how loved and appreciated you are.. getting nothing feels like you mean nothing to them.

    wow what the heck!! i would be so hurt and sad. us girls want to come home to the giant teddy bear and the roses. ok guys - so youre not romantic. noones asking you to be!! this is basic stuff. anyone should know how to treat a girl on valentines day. im on your team. i would be seriously upset and that is not okay. he can get a car next check. really? to get you nothing on valentines day? that is unacceptable, hopefully he apologizes. i would forgive him and move on but make it clear you expected to be treated like a girlfriend ESPECIALLY on Valentines Day!! My bf is not that romantic but he knows i am a hopeless romantic and being with me has really opened up his romantic side. express to him this stuff means a lot to you and he will get with the program hopefully!! xx

    Your bf is smart.  If he keeps using the excuse that he can do it next time he gets paid he'll be a glutton who will never be able to do it.  He's goal-oriented and knows what the real priorities are which means more than any stinkin' holiday that encourages rabid consumerism.  

    It's one day of the year, every year.  It will take place next year too.  Are you also one of those people who will blow $200,000 on your wedding to experience instant gratification for ONE DAY of your life?!?  Not smart.  

    Fall in love with each other's company, not each other's material things.  Learn to appreciate it and be less shallow.

    Just because he's you're boyfriend doesn't mean he needs to get you anything.

    Ity would seem that he does not love and appreciate you.

    yeah--he's a taker, not a giver---wish him into the cornfield!! and if he shows up tomorrow all apologies?  still kick his butt to the curb--cuz he did that for half price candy and flowers...

    It’s not a holiday. If it were, then why am I at work. 

    Watch married with children. I think it was the first Valentine’s day episode. Peg told Al that she wants nothing for valentine except for him to say I love you. 

    Does he have to buy you gifts to show his love.

    It's a made up holiday designed to empty a man's wallet.

    That's unfortunate. You can cheat on him as a payback.
