So I have a date on Valentine's day... but it's not a valentine's day date. I had coffee with a guy from Match a couple of weeks ago. We both have been travelling for business. He gets back in town Thursday. Here was our convo:

Him - "You want to get together Thursday?"
Me - "I can't, I have a poker game. How about Saturday?"
Him - "I have a BBQ on Saturday... Umm... would it be too weird if we did it on Friday?"

We were both trying to avoid Friday because we're certainly not "Valentines." We decided to hit a Happy Hour for a couple of drinks and some appetizers, as we didn't want a restaurant on V-Day.

However, we're both like "Right, I'm not forcing a V-Day date." "Me neither, sorry. I want to hang out and this is the soonest we both can."

Also I historically have terrible V-Days... hope this changes it.

That's so funny! I trigger over v day and I wondered how a conversation like that might go. Sounds like you both handled it well.

I hope it's a good date.

In the spirit of it not being a v-day date, I could recommend not focusing on this:

as it's an awful lot of pressure for a first date.

Oh I think that's awesome you're willing to go out on Valentine's day! Maybe it hints that you both don't take everything too seriously. Could be fun!

I filed for divorce last Valentine's day.

Valentines Day....

Just remind yourselves it is Friday, the day between Thursday and Saturday. And it is good that you are both busy, and also making time to meet.

Secretly, though, are you wishing he would bring you a flower or something?

@Amazonia - it's not a first date, it's a second date.

@healing - no.

ETA: My bad V-Days generally have nothing to do with who I'm dating, it tends to be stuff like my car will break down or my favorite shoes will lose a heel, that kind of thing.

Valentine's day was only maybe my third or 4th date with my SO.
