Is spending $500 on a special date for Valentine's Day any different from spending $500 on a Canucks game? Two tickets, food, parking, beer, etc. - you can get up to $500 pretty easily. I wonder if all of the posters arguing that $500 is too much for a date would say the same thing about going to a Canucks game.

I've been away from this thread for the past couple days, been traveling (I wouldn't want to brag about where I've been, as the brag quota is filled in this thread) and I guess since I've been gone, I've been called out as "Racist" by Aeromatacanuck (sp?)

I am not a Racist, for the record. Nor did I say anything racist. One more thing, I'm guessing you have to spend money on these girls Aero, I mean, they have to put up with your pilot bragging and clear obsession with yourself and your "supposed" accomplishments. *News flash* when you stated that the USA has airports every 10 miles, this board is based in Canada! Some of the most difficult flying conditions on the planet, given our vast north and variating climate. And I can assure you there's much further landing locations than 10 miles, but I guess your worldly experience would just group Canada with the US.

As a Grandson of a RCAF pilot, I'd love you to tell him to his face how much better you and your Brazilian pilot buddies are at flying than him.

Happy week after Valentines everyone. Take your ladies out often. There really should be no need for a special day. If you treat then right, everyday is a special day ; )

$500 just isn't all that much money for a romantic evening out. And if it is for you, then do not spend it but do not criticize those who do.


To me, it's not the concern of him spending the money - because if he has it, he can spend it however he chooses - but the amounts of women calling him up because they know he'll spend it on them. My criticism is on the girls, not him.
I'd like a poll of how many guys who make ballpark 30k-50k had multiple women calling them up to have them take them out. Why? Because generally, we aren't going to shower a girl with $500 of stuff on Valentine's Day. To me, any girl who expects that or hopes for that isn't worth it. Mine just wants to be recognized on Valentine's, that's basically it.

Why? I also invested and put money into businesses and saving.

I had my first home one year out of university and I had no debt. Did fine.

This was also 1928 and stocks were flying :P

Is it vastly different? No. They're both frivolous and (hopefully) fun distractions.

Well, yes. My post was aimed at those who were scoffing at spending $500 on a special night out. If the special night out was a Canucks game instead of a valentine's date, I'm sure at least some of the posters would be changing their tune.
