My favorite anniversaries/birthdays/v-day's are when I spent it alone, with my boyfriend, at home, just the 2 of us, with a fancy homemade meal, being romantic.

If he wouldn't even talk to you to arrange something (like 'let's not celebrate Valentine's Day and let me get you our anniversarypresent another time') he wasn't worth it anyway.

You can still celebrate Valentine's Day without getting your partner expensive jewelry or something. My boyfriend and I are just going to make dinner together since we don't have a lot of money. The guy could have just written a poem or picked some flowers for goodness' sake.

If you have to get the person you're with a present every holiday, I'll just stay single. Unless the person is understanding about money, then simply spending time together is enough, or crafting something.

Who knows? OP might be the type of person who wants something every special event and her boyfriend knew that. The only way to keep his money in his pants was to break up with her.

Or to tell her that he could not afford to spend that much money. Breaking up only shows what a coward he is. I am in OP's case as my b-day is a few days before Valentine's day. As many have said, there is no need to spend a fortune on each occasion. My fiancé and I are gonna go out for my b-day and and we will cook a meal together for Valentine's day. Expensive does not mean make the occasion special.

Some times that doesn't work though. I've had a girl break up for me just because I couldn't give her present on valentines day. I even told her that it may have to wait. I told her I would give it to her anyways and when I did she tried to get back together with me. Some people just want their presents.

"I've had a girl break up for me just because I couldn't give her present on valentines day." And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why fourteen-year-old girls are not very decent relationship material.

To 26) while you're correct that 6 is a bit of an asshole, you sir, are even worse. An arrogant asshole. If the bf asked op out 1 year ago, valentines day and her b-day would have been on the same days. 6's insensitive point still stands, you're just a dumbass. Use some common sense please.

I'd rather have an insensitive, honest friend. it's shitty, but truthful. in a few months when OP is in a better place with a better guy, she's going to realize that this was actually true. her dickbag ex didn't care a lot about her.

That's total bull, what kind of girls have you been with? Girls want to feel beautiful, have fun & laugh. You don't have to spend a lot all the time. Sometimes it's nice to do free things like hike & take pictures, free museum exhibits, visit UC campuses, go to the park, stay home & watch movies, or go to friends houses etc.

I'd kill a guy if he spent a lot of money on me. (Not literally) I'm the type of girl who is fine with notes, inexpensive things, or nothing at all and just cuddling on the couch and watching movies. You seem to have been with the materialistic ones

Not all women are gold diggers, as others have said. I would be happy just spending time in with my boyfriend. Maybe cook dinner together and watch a movie. Material things are just that...material.

It's at least worth a discussion. If all those occasions fall in a short period of time, they should discuss how they're going to celebrate them. It doesn't have to be anything expensive, but they're all worth acknowledging.
