...we spent all of Christmas Eve and the majority of Christmas together (via Skype)

What a sweet story.
I am from California & also had Christmas Eve dinner via video chat with my long distance boyfriend & his mother in France.
They even put the laptop at my place setting!  :-*
We opened gifts together & everything. Pretty cool!

I've heard of going cold turkey but that's a little extreme!

Like I said, it was fun, but I was pretty shaky, beforehand. I had some Grand Marnier first, to no avail.
Were it not for the tenderness of my sweet filet mignon, I would have chickened out, altogether.

OK, for all the guys bellyaching about the commercialism of Valentine's Day, this may be more up you alley...
I don't know if you need to belong to Facebook or not to see this, & you certainly don't have to join the "cause", but it's a nice idea  :).

Tell Her She's Beautiful. If the link doesn't work, you can read it here:
Spoiler
ENTIRE WORLD
Description
It has come to my attention that as I grow older, girls get more and more self conscious of themselves. This hurts me, because every girl is beautiful in their own way. They all want to live up to standards that the media has set for them, like being paper thin or double Z breasts. It really breaks my heart to see all of the girls to wallow around and hate who they are and think they aren’t worth something.

I’m making this event so everyone can tell anyone that they think is beautiful, that they are beautiful. Just tell them. They don’t hear it enough, and they want to hear it. Tell anyone; tell your friend, your mother, your sister, your cousin, your dog for all I care. Let’s show girls that we don’t care about the standards that they set for themselves and that we like them the way they are.

Let’s show every girl that they really are beautiful. So tell them, it’ll make their day.

Girls, you ARE beautiful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Invite as many people as you can to this event :) spread the word and make this a big event!

It’ll be spanning from Thursday the 11th to Sunday the 14th (aka Valentine’s Day), so boys/ girls, this gives you time to work up the nerve for that special someone.

And if one feels so inclined, spread the love to the males too, because we can be insecure too!

Guys please do not fret too much about this, this event was inspired by my friends that don't think that they're enough. Hence why I dedicate this to females. But being a guy myself, I do understand how we can feel self conscious at times too. So yes this can be for males too, i never said it couldn't. It could be for anyone, even your pet rock for all I care, just spread the love. :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This event is not created to force anyone to say "You're beautiful"; see it as a reminder.

Everyone is beautiful in their own way, so please keep negative comments to yourself. Please people, be mature. If you don't like the idea of this event too much, keep rude comments to yourself! Thanks :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To all of you people out there who are struggling with issues like self confidence, a break up, depression, boredom, or any other negative feeling, visit the link below. Geoffrey Montalvo, a very big supporter of THSB, has started this site to help people like you, who are struggling. Feel free to fill out a request for an anonymous article written just for you and your problem.

Also a GREAT guy has created a song called "Tell Her She's Beautiful" inspired by this event! Check it out (created by David Ishizaka)

http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=4PClUAShOP8

For those interested, I will be posting videos for the event and such on my Youtube channel. I will also be posting other things for my art class, check it out :)

http://www.youtube.c...er/JimmysInTheClouds

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On a final note, I'm not exactly adding anyone anymore. I have added a few of you wonderful people, but no one seemed to add me with any specific purpose. So unless there is a special reason, I will not add anymore people on my profile. I do however appreciate the comments you guys send to m, when you send me a friend request, and I read and enjoy each and every one of them. I also personally answer every message I receive :) So feel free to message!

For those that did send me a message this way and I haven't answered to it, it's because I wasn't able to send you a message back. I appreciate your messages either way though :)

Thank you very much, you are all beautiful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Due to abuse of posting, no one is allowed to post pictures, links or videos anymore. Sorry guys :( some people are just a little too immature.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

INTERVIEWS!!!!
So some media wanted to interview me, and I gladly answered all of the questions, more on the way!

Curiously, I don't even think about Valentine's Day. I planned to take my friend of nearly 40 years to dinner on Saturday (she asked me about Valentine's for some reason) and didn't realize that day is the 13th until hours later. We normally don't observe the 14th; we count the 15th as our day. Why? Because that's the day, all those years ago, we fell in love forever.
 ;)
Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code is a violent psychopath and knows where you live.

Same here. Me and my wife don't celebrate our wedding anniversary, but the day we met. You can get married anytime, but you met for the first time only once.

That's sweet, too!
Not trying to brag or anything, but we celebrate:
the first PM (from another forum) I ever sent him  :-*,
the day we met on video chat , and
the day he arrived from France so we could meet in person

What can I say, he is French!

OK, you got me, and fast. I looked up the show, but still can't think of a thing to say.
You must still be seething over my last win, so you're giving me something impossible to respond to this time!  :P
That's OK, though - if I lose to you, at least you're always tactful, and not condescending.  ;)
Even when the obvious happens to slip by me.

Either that, or it's just not my day  ;D .

You could try "Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once".

If she hasn't got a good singing voice how about "pass me the cheese"?

Just as commercial, but a different approach to Valentine day.. Valentine's day and White day in Japan

I think you can ignore the commercialism if you want to, you don't have to go buy expensive gifts, it should be about the sentiment..... Having said that, this year I am part of the single and (not so) depressed group  ;)
