I don't find it stressful as much as I find it annoying. I have only been on one date and I've also been a server on V-Day, too. What a nightmare that was. (Just a reminder, if you're going out to a restaurant, treat your server like your valentine... I can't tell you how thankless and rude people are on V-Day).
For a fraction of the cost, I can make a gorgeous dinner, have precisely what I want, not have to worry about a harried server and avoid all the reckless traffic and attitudes.
My thoughts - flowers die, I don't like chocolate, I can't stand pink, hearts are overrated and there's no suggestion that St. Valentine was the patron of lovers.
But, that's just me. Pragmatic. I'd rather go out on a Monday night to a nice restaurant and know that I'll probably have the best service and a nearly empty restaurant (hint - Mondays are the slowest days for restaurants and the best time to have a quiet dinner).
But, if chocolates and roses are your thing.. by all means, go for it.View Thread
