Nearly half of American women take Valentine's Day so to heart they would give up something special - like sex or chocolate - for a month in order to have an "awesome" holiday, a new poll has found.
The online joint survey by BlogHer and iVillage, "Valentine's Day: Heaven or Hell?" sought to determine if women loved or loathed it.
"We wanted to know: Does this holiday actually pluck at the heartstrings of women, or is this commercial pressure?" said Lisa Stone, co-founder and CEO of BlogHer. "The answer was . . . they really care."
About 44 percent of 13,192 surveyed said they'd sacrifice something for a month to have an "awesome" V-Day: 4 percent would do without sex; and 8 percent said they'd give up "anything!"
"There is so much pressure on Valentine's Day," Stone said. "Do you have a significant other or not? Do you care? . . . It turns out that women enjoy celebrating the romance."

..and after? :D:D

I think we're doing a Valentines dinner and I may be expected to purchase some sort of shiny products to please her.

This women have their priorities in the wrong place.
We celebrate Valentine's Day because it's my daughter's birthday, but my Fiance and I don't wait until one day out of the year for romance. If I were to write a love book...:D

So, they would deny their guy sex, and expect a great V day????
I guess the guys would do ANYTHING just to get some.There's no way you can trust her. Her missile is gigantic

Note how misleading the the title of the article is. Only 4% actually said that they would give up sex.;)
