Wendy: Atlanta is a good city for straight, single men. Atlanta can be romantic. It’s just hard to find the right person with straight, single men being a high commodity. Unless you have that magical, wonderful boyfriend or girlfriend, Valentine’s Day makes a lot of people unhappy. I don’t like people to be unhappy. I don’t feel I have to prescribe to what my nation makes a romantic day. My idea of romance is being taken out for pool and beer.

Almeta: Valentine’s Day sucks. I’m having an anti-Valentine’s Day hump and grope party for my birthday, which is the day before Valentine’s. I don’t have a date for Valentine’s. My apartment is really tiny so I’m going to invite a lot of people. Forget that couple shit; let’s just get in a room and hump and grope. Valentine’s Day should not exist. It’s made to make single people feel bad. I’m expecting to sit home, drink a bottle of wine and maybe cry.

Bubba: No. I always get turned down on Valentine’s. It’s just a good reason to get drunk. Atlanta is not a romantic city. I mean, where are you going to go? Are you going to go to the zoo? Are you going to go to the aquarium or the CNN Center? Six Flags ain’t open. I guess I hang out in the wrong places, looking for the wrong thing. I never have a date for Valentine’s. It’s been so long, I’ve forgot. Hawaii would probably work better.
