Valentine’s Day Contest: Win 1 of 5 $10 Google Play Gift Cards! (Update: Winners Picked)


To the men and women in the building who are feeling extra pressure today to do something special for that certain someone, we have something for you. It’s Valentine’s Day after all, and for many, that means another year of stress over making this the ultimate day of love, in fear of not meeting lofty relationship expectations. It’s at times a no-win situation, or better put, a day for games that potential significant others play with each other to see how well you know their needs or if you may be the one. Did you buy the right flowers? Should you have delivered them to their office or not? Dark or milk chocolate? Is your reservation at the right restaurant? Rosé or Brut with dinner? Are those heart-filled boxers going to look flattering tonight? Do I love this person or was I forced into saying so because it’s Valentine’s Day? Ahh, the stress.

Let’s relieve some of that, right now. Or at least take your mind off of it for a second and reward you with something that you can spoil yourself with when the day comes to a close. We have a handful (5) of Google Play gift cards to give away to five heart-shaped DL readers. 


Update:  We have our winners! Go check your emails!

Prizes:  Five (5) $10 Google Play gift cards

    All the employees in her office were waiting for flowers to be delivered to her. So failed on that part but was going to get her flowers on the way home to start of the night. Got the roses I wanted to get her, not the plain red ones, but but the off red and pink colored ones, we went to a nice restaurant, where we saw people on their phones (shame), and since she’s a gamer, she was gifted Princess Peach and Mario earrings.

    I spent my valentine’s day watching my son while my wife worked and then I went to work while she watched him. Not the most romantic day while we’ve been together.

  • martyhalpern

    We had a nice quiet dinner at home, followed by a velvet cake for dessert. My wife (of 32+ years) isn’t a chocoholic — I am, and so I was treated to a huge box of dark chocolate. She got large stem red roses.

    I took my girlfriend out for dinner, we did a bit of shopping, and then picked up ice cream to top off the night. I’m not allowed to do anything big because it’s also her sister’s birthday and she hates to take the focus of the day off of her sister. So we came back and had a party for her sister afterwards too.

    Enjoying my first Valentines with my new girl friend whom I asked that we become official. We’ll probably start it off by first going to a romantic candle-light dinner. Exchanging gifts we got for each other. Finally ending it by either going bowling or just by watching a movie at her apartment.
