Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that polarizes relationships between men and women, and the expectations are off the chart. We men usually can’t get it right. Women look forward to this day as much as the post-Christmas sales. It used to be simple – chocolates and/or flowers and a sweet card. Now, we’re made to feel that our gifts are reflections of our love and their status (in our hearts). Let’s TAKE THIS ON at #DadChat this Thursday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. Your homework is this column, Why Men Hate Valentine’s Day.
Ahhh, Valentine’s Day. It’s our women’s Super Bowl and it’s our nightmare. Dad tries his best to pick the right card but we all know that he’ll miss, so let’s see how he does?! You might enjoy this column, Why Guys Hate Valentine’s Day.
Let’s admit it guys, Valentine’s Day is often a lose-lose proposition for us. Just read this column, Guys Hate Valentine’s Day, which has consistently been one of my most popular posts EVER!

My parents had the greatest love story, love affair of them all! I threw a 50th Wedding Anniversary surprise party for them in June, 1989. This was way before packaged videos of events. I hired a new videographer who basically just “shot” the event. I prepared my own visual presentation at the party and that is what you’ll be seeing in this 14-minute video. I hope you appreciate it. I was once young!
Perhaps the greatest love songs album of all-time and certainly Sinatra’s all-time best!
Every time #DadChat does music, we have a blast. Don’t we ALL love LOVE songs? What are your favorites? Bring your favorite rock ‘n’ roll love songs and your classic pop ones as well. Back again to co-host is School-of-Rock maven Jason Ramsey! Heck, if you have a fav hip-hop or rap, share ’em! That means, have the YouTube link handy and ready. We’ll have a transcript this week so don’t worry about seeing them all during our chat this Valentine’s Day, February 14 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. Homework for this chat is my #1 column on 12Most.com – 12 Most Classic Romantic Songs for Valentine’s Day.
Love and Marriage was a classic Sinatra song. Its lyrics truly seem quaint and decidedly old-fashioned today. But, my parents lived a love affair that stood the test of time and incredible challenges. Their love affair was a model that was pretty hard for their peers to match and certainly impossible in my generation for both my wife and any of my married friends – at least those that I know well.
