If I'm with someone, I'll do something a little extra. If I'm single, then it's whatever, I try not to focus on it too much.

The only exception to this was many years ago, when my sister was feeling exceptionally lonely one Valentine's Day, I decided to order her a bunch of flowers to be delivered on the day. She really liked that.

EDIT: I'm not overly opposed to the idea, though I do think it is overly commercialised. Do something personal to you, celebrate it your own way, not the way corporations want you to.

Isa's right it is similar to Christmas in that if you have a significant other you really shouldn't wait til Valentines Day to show you care. You shouldn't need a holiday to remind you to be a good BF/GF much like how you shouldn't need a holiday to remind you to be a good sibling or child (No matter how old you get, you're parents will still think of you as their child).
While I agree that you shouldn't wait until Valentine's Day, I don't think the point of it is exactly to remind someone to be good to their SO. Doing nice things and being a good BF/GF on an everyday basis typically looks pretty different from Valentine's Day plans, especially when you're younger. Holidays are cool because they give you an opportunity to go above and beyond with things that aren't practical to do more frequently. I love giving my family gifts for their birthdays and Christmas, but I can't afford to do that on a daily basis. Of course you can still see something you think your SO would like and get it for them just because, but I don't think having a holiday to facilitate those kinds of things is bad either. :happyazurill:

Since I've always been single it's not something I've been able to have that much fun with. But it is something that's a nice reminder of to remain dedicated to those you're close to. But yeah, I haven't really done anything much for others around me when it comes.
