    Does this mean you two won't be spending any time together while he's broke, including Valentine's day? Or are you getting together to do low-key, inexpensive things for the moment?

    Sounds like you don't know him very well. Have you just started dating? Are you exclusive, or not?

    People have to eat and usually have enough for groceries. Seems like if he wanted to spend time with you, he might've just explained how he was broke but wanted to cook some spaghetti for you or something.

    Maybe if you give more information, we'll be able to have a better understanding of what's going on and what your concerns are.

    How long have you been dating? Have you met in person? It sounds like a very cold business letter replete with "thank you for understanding".

    Unfortunately he is giving you a preemptive pack of excuses. Why would he have to go on and on and on like this rather than just do something? He can't get to the corner store for a card or a flower? He's lying. Dump him.

Just know you are thought of and cared for everyday not just February 14th. Thank you for your understanding. 🌹🌹🌹ö

    God I thought I was the one who thought like this!!! Thanks Wiseman2 haha. I agree this sounds so suspicious. Both my ex gave me essay like texts whenever they wanted to cover their a$$ and it turned out to be a whole bunch of kid like excuses. If he`s broke, he shouldn`t even being dating in the first place. He should sort out his financial stability. And all this "Just know you are thought of and cared for everyday not just February 14th." okay, sounds like he google that sh*t. I`m sorry if I sound too harsh, but I`ve been hanging around loosers for so long, I can now smell excuses from miles away. "So obviously I want to do something for you for this holiday they call Valentine's day. " Obvious to whom? Sounds like you asked him out on Vday or something and he just declined in a "cute" way. Yeah, sorry but don`t buy that. Also, do you communicate often? didn`t you know he was already away somewhere? Why did he need to clarify all this to you? I get the idea you don`t talk very often, in fact not even everyday and it`s always texting. Because if you diod you would already know about his family going through this tragic things and that he was away. I also think you just starting seeing each other o which my ultimate advice is: #RUN #RUNLIKEFORRESTGUMP.

    What arrangements for the dog dying? Is that an American thing? Forgive me lack of knowledge, I`m Greek.

    I need to know more for context and based on the information given I cannot relate to anyone who would want their SO to prioritize celebrating Valentines Day on February 14 instead of on another day so the person could care for his family.

    I agree! I kind of thought he was lying... I've made up excuses before to people and I always find myself over explaining when I don't want to do something or go somewhere. He's definitely lying. Especially if it's the guy from the other posts. I'm sorry!

    Yep. Total bull. Anyone can stop someplace and pick something up. This guy took the time and enumerated more reasons why he can't than it takes to stop and pick up a card, rose, whatever.

    Yes agree - it woulda been quicker to pick up a card, write "Love John (or whatever his name is) and stamp and mail it then to write out that text lol. There was a reason why he wrote out that text.

    Is the message from someone who generally treats you well, or from someone who generally leaves you wondering why you're dating him?

    Context can be everything.
