        Hey for a young couple if you grow up around white castle ... and can't afford anything. Why not? I think it is sweet and takes us to time when a expensive gourmet dinner wasn't everything. It is the thought and the love between two people, not the food. I for one refuse to go out on V'day, it is a pain, I cook at home but if my sig other asked me I could good, it is a simple pure thought that goes back to the days when that was a big deal.

        Maybe I'm just a romantic, but I don't see anything wrong with it.

      I can't imagine white castle inspiring and romantic advances after the effects of the meal, if you know what i mean. not a good idea, imo.

        I agree...somehow I can't imagine this type of "cuisine" as an aphrodisiac...nor can I picture the ambiance of the place getting anyone in a romantic mood.

        Definitely doesn't blow my skirt up. :)

          Maybe some people can't go waste money on some expensive restaurant & are very happy to go to White Castle & just be together for a candle light Valentines dinner they can afford. Nothing wrong with that at all.
