The up tenth message from the same person on facebook. Followed by a rant that miserable single people shouldn't ruin it for loved up couples as it's not their day to ruin. It's not commercialism but a day for real loveeeeeeeeee.

I feel I can slightly breath now I have logged in to Mumsnet. haha

Have the opposite here. One going on about how valentines day is a big pile of toosh, a money grabbing corporate affair, shouldn't have a designated day of year to show love, anti-valentines blah blah blah [insert rest of massively long FB status about how shit and over-rated Valentines day is].

Less than 1 minute later....

"OMAGAWD Look at this huge hamper of gifts DP had delivered straight to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How romantic nd surprising I just LOVE valentines day and he is taking me out to [super expensive restaurant] after work LOLOL I am so in love. Totes gloating at all you miserable singleton valentines hater right now".

She then proceeded to post 10 or so over edited, vignette plastered photos of said hamper - crappy balloon included - taken at different angles at her desk.

Copied exactly (restaurant removed for privacy).

Whoever she is is BU simply for using the phrase 'me man'.

Strawberries in heart shaped plastic in sainsbury's today!! Eugh!

GemmaTeller Fri 14-Feb-14 14:35:20

I knew this was going to be a FB thread grin

DH and I were just in Lidl and the man in front of us (wearing a wedding ring) had two rose bouquets, one £3 and one £5
DH whispered to me.....'do you think he's giving both to his wife or one to his wife and one to his girlfriend....if so which one gets the dearer bouquet?' grin

Me man? Says it all

somedizzywhore1804 Fri 14-Feb-14 14:35:37

My DH is taking his true valentine- best friend and best man at our wedding- to a gig and for a beer and a burger in a wetherspoons tonight. I'm going to my mums for a pizza grin

in front of the TV watching House of Cards on Netflix

MerylStrop Fri 14-Feb-14 14:39:16

He makes me feel whole now he's stumped up for some tacky but ostentatious shite so that the colleagues can see

"Totes gloating at all you miserable singleton valentines hater right now".

Really????? Oh my life what a moron hmm

MerylStrop Fri 14-Feb-14 14:40:13

DH and I sent each other text messages that said happy valentines day in between bickering about who is picking the kids up from school

RedPencils Fri 14-Feb-14 14:43:57

I just got a card. A jokey card as well, not quite Purple Ronnie, but along those lines.

Mumraathenoisylion Fri 14-Feb-14 14:44:47

Softly....swingers night in?

Shosha1 Fri 14-Feb-14 14:45:32

I would be very surprised if I got anything from DH (this us the guy who said the 1st year together ' you don't expect two cards in one week do you!' As it's my birthday a few days later)

BUT he is on leave this week, and has got up at 6 every morning to take me to work, as I was nervous to drive through the floods and gales and then comes and picks me up again after.

Not one for show but one for deeds

curiousgeorgie Fri 14-Feb-14 14:45:56

I've never seen anything in real life that people post on here...

I worry about the friends you have confused

Just remove them?

My Facebook feed is occasional photos of roses, with the person tagged in a thank you, and moaning about the weather... I posted a picture of my 3 year old holding a card she got from nursery. Very cute smile

HesterShaw Fri 14-Feb-14 14:52:20


Thank fuck I have no friends like that. I haven't seen a single mention.

WilsonFrickett Fri 14-Feb-14 14:52:33

I am facebooking slightly too much blush but if I don't publically prod shame DH he won't leave work on time and all the good Dine In stuff will be gone from M&S and all we'll be left with is sweet white wine and the mushroom risotto <and breathes>

softlysoftly Fri 14-Feb-14 15:43:54

grin mumraat

Sadly nothing so interesting, he has a restaurant, probably should have added that bit.

kinkyfuckery Fri 14-Feb-14 15:45:42

I made my kids waffles with chocolate spread, and arranged little mini marshmallows in the shapes of love hearts on them.

I win.

"Totes gloating at all you miserable singleton valentines hater right now".

Sounds like SamCam (as the one by Catherine Bennet in the Guardian)

DownstairsMixUp Fri 14-Feb-14 15:52:02

I haven't had any overly gloating ones but lots of photos of roses and declarations of undying love for other halfs. My other half has decided to work overtime tonight and go in tomorrow then we spent the day bickering as I've decided to go away for the weekend with DS as he is busy. Happy Valentines day! wink

I did delete someone for posting endless "making shepherds pie with onions for my 'Pwincess" "having a cuppa with my lufly hubby" type bollocks, but apart from that, the odd photo of a child doing something cute and a bit of moaning about the weather is about as exciting as it gets.

I have to get my thrills from the local FB selling pages, some of the ding dongs on there are pure gold
