Reader Poll Results: What You Are Doing For Valentine’s Day

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

We asked. You told. Here are the results of our Reader Poll.

What are you doing this Valentine’s Day?  
Attending yet another production of the Vagina Monologues r 5%
Having dinner with significant other 27%
Having dinner with single friends 5%
Resenting significant other for not paying enough attention to Valentine’s Day, even though you told 5%
Prepping for class. This is law school, after all. Duh. 19%
Playing the Iseley Brothers on continuous loop 0%
Loving the Haagen-Dasz 6%
When is it? 29%
Baking cupcakes for my kid’s school party 5%

What conclusions can we draw, if any? (C’mon, it’s just for fun. We know it is not a statistically meaningful sample, etc.)

If 29% of our respondents don’t know (or care) when Valentine’s Day is, perhaps women are not the emotionally-attached, chocolate-and-diamond-seeking creatures that the media would make us out to be around February 14. 27% of us are out for dinner with a significant other, but at the same time (or after dinner or before), 19% are getting ready for school tomorrow. We go to community-oriented events in proportionately small numbers (5% attending yet another production of the Vagina Monologues), but we’re the ones making the events happen, too (5% baking cupcakes for the school party).
