Today a friend told me that she was still feeling down after a disappointing Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t offer much helpful advice earlier, but now after seeing this cartoon, I think maybe cupid just made the wrong decision and was held by airport security:

Dirtflake - Tough Decision

On the other hand, a few men have told me that Valentine’s Day costs them so much that they feel rather depressed until March Madness (College Basketball playoffs for all you non-U.S. readers). This cartoon seemed much more appropriate for them:

Dirtflake - Empty

Thanks to Joel Esler at Dirtflake for the cartoons!

    Aaah, guys need to be like me: no more flowers or going out on Valentine’s Day. Do something simple. Then surprise her with dinner and flowers some OTHER night, preferably nowhere near the holiday.

    The flowers and the food are much cheaper. Better: they’re unexpected.

    It’s good to be cheap.

    Even better: Gather some friends and you’re girlfriend/boyfriend and go party all night without even THINKING of Valentine.
    And if you want go to the extreme, watch for some Gay/Lesbian Party near your home.

    Dorky Dad has the right idea. We boycot Valentine’s Day in our house. Too much pressure.

    Bossy doesn’t like to exchange Valentine’s gifts with her husband. She prefers to buy chocolates for her kids – and then wait until they are asleep and pilfer them.

    If I were cupid, that would same tough decisions every day. I boycott Valentine’s Day every year.

    Guys, don’t make the same mistake I did. I was caught and found guilty of being a guy.

    Before I got hitched, I dated for several years and noticed a pattern. Everything was lovey-dovey up until Christmas, and I’d buy my girl something that I thought was cool and sentimental.

    Took me a coupla years before I realized that my “sentimental” gift was either cheap, cheesy, tacky, or all three, and my girlfriend of the previous autumn would break up with me by the time February rolled around, usually after Christmas and before New Year’s eve.

    In other words, I was trained to disrespect and ignore Valentine’s Day. I was free…

    Until I got married.

    I made the fatal mistake of thinking that Valentine’s Day was for pie-eyed, sweating-in-love, “kiss-me-in-the-frozen-food-section-in-front-of-the-ladies-in -hair-curlers” single lovers.

    I disrepected Valentine’s Day only once since then, the first and last once, the once on the 14th of the second month of the year after my wife and I got married. I promptly bought a more comfortable couch in case I ever forgot again.
