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).
