    Card and a box of chocolates for Mrs.Benny
    She's not that big on flowers...and she got a lot of jewellery for Christmas.
    We keep it fairly simple on Valentines day.

    I buy my wife flowers quite often, so I don't feel guilt tripped into buying them on the 14th Feb just because tradition dictates.
    Probably sink a bottle of red together and watch TV

    We are off for a meal tonight (got a great deal on it he he ) and tomorrow we will just snuggle in front of the TV.

    We don't go in for over-priced flowers and all that malarkey.

    Dinner for two cooked by me ,pan seared scallops with Parma ham,to start then Skate Wings in a brown butter and caper sauce, upside down French apple tart with cream ,and a bottle of fizz
    No flowers as The florists treat Valentine's Day as a opportunity to rip people off
    To be honest I don't need a specific day to tell Her Ladyship I love her

    @Walecs, do believe me, mate, being on your own is better. ;)

    My latest ex-girlfriend was abnormally clingy in every aspect, I started to like being single and have time for myself whenever and however I want. It recruited me to Bond’s ideology of “enjoying bachelor’s taste for freedom” and it’s worth it. :))

    Glad I don’t have to worry about anybody on Valentine’s Day and spend the day like any other.

    Another opportunity for the market to sell people junk they don't need leveraging off guilt.

    I hope you used the line:
    "Should have warned you, my relationships don't last either."
    When you broke up @ClarkDevlin :))

    The funny thing is about my relationship played out in a very similar way to Bond and Vesper's (luckly, no one died).

    Love that. I imagine a line of ex GFs standing out in the rain, possibly welding baseball bats. ;)

    A new version of the 'St Valentine's day massacre' but with ex-birds instead of Al Capone !!

    My girlfriend and I exchanged cards and had a nice dinner at home (with carrot cake!) to celebrate on Sunday. She has trouble getting over to see me during the weekdays.
  • RemingtonRemington Perfection is achievable. I'm living proof of that. I like to think so anyway.

    I asked my girl if it would be enough to stay in and watch a Bond movie of her choice. It wasn't. Better go find my wallet. Lol good thing I'm a closet romantic.

    Over a period of about the first five years of our relationship mine watched every 007 film with me, even the unofficial ones. She doesn't remember which was which, but TB and SF stood out as favorites.

    I don't like Valentine's Day: when you're single it's depressing and when you're in a relationship it's stressful. Got a chocolate box and a few chocolate roses for my wife that should be enough for this year.

    But don't forget that tomorrow is the time to buy chocolates on the cheap.

    Exactly...just like after Easter with the eggs.
