When I was younger, it caused a lot of problems

Response to February 14th...just another day or something special?

I had a lot of unrealistic expectations. My DH would have completely ignored the day, except that we usually got into a big fight over it. I used to work with women who got wonderful V-day gifts at work (their husbands were obviously better trained than mine) and it hurt a lot. I was very insecure. I still think he should have given me some special attention because he knew I cared. However, that was then...this is now. I always give my children heart-shaped boxes of Russell Stover candy. I give him a card as well, but I no longer care about the gifts, cards, etc. However, now he usually buys me flowers. 'Course he waits so long to do it that I get a bunch of bright yellow and purple mums, because that's all that's left....
