Did your spouse get you anything for Valentines Day?

Did anyone else not get anything for Valentine’s day? I’m kinda annoyed and just need to vent. My husband and I have been together for ten years, and I really just want to feel appreciated. I do all of the housework, take care of the kids, have hot meals ready when he gets off work, and he can’t even tell me happy Valentine’s day. I’m just tired of feeling unappreciated and like he doesn’t care. I went out of my way to make him a unique painting with my body, and he didn’t even like it, and he made me feel weird for making it. Anyone else going through this?

I got us a couples massage… told him about it after. We can enjoy together but I planned it.

So basically…He’s selfish.

Sounds like the “terrible 10s”
Takes 2 to make an effort. Make sure he’s making his.

I got a happy valentines day. And I took us out to eat. But as far as gifts, none were exchanged. He isn’t really the romantic type either so I didn’t expect anything anyway. I wish he was more romantic sometimes. Good luck.

I tell my wife that she can go to work and I stay home and take care of the house

Sit him down and tell him how you’re feeling. Just be blunt. Sometimes people need to be told exactly how they’re making others feel. Make sure he knows it’s not about the gifts it’s about being appreciated.

I didn’t get anything but it didn’t bother me. N I definitely understand the struggle being real with the house n things.

If he’s like my husband he may just say it in his own dumb way. Like if he takes my truck he washes it and puts gas in it.

When he’s on his way home early he picks up lunch etc.

Good luck getting him to partake in a lot of holidays n things

If you’re not feeling appreciated, then receiving a gift on one day outta the year where it’s semi expected isn’t gonna solve your main problem.
I’m just sayin’.

If he didn’t even say happy valentines day he doesn’t care. Not enough anyway. On a day that millions of people are making their partner feel special he doesn’t even say anything? It sounds like he doesn’t want to make an effort to be in that relationship. Id talk to him and express your feelings and if he doesn’t change id leave. You don’t deserve to feel like you don’t matter

Has he always done things for you in the past? … and I couldn’t be with someone who can’t do something small to show me I’m appreciated … he sounds like an a**

I wouldn’t have dinner ready, house clean, or laundry done (at least his). When he gets home, leave, and leave the kids with him. (Even if it’s to drive around the block). After that a couple of times, he will gripe, then tell him how under appreciated you feel when he forgets Valentine’s and birthdays . Just an occasional pat on the back would be appreciated. My daddy would get up from the dinner table and give momma a kiss and thank her for a great meal. Even if was a sandwich.

I would have a talk with him and tell him how you’re feeling, sometimes relationships become so routine, we have to talk about it with the other one before they realize it hurts the other one.

I didn’t get anything but I didn’t get him anything as well. I get your point that’s why I stopped doing stuff I was not feeling appreciated and never received so I stop doing a lot of stuff.
