Teachers, another will/would question^^

In the following sentence:

I don't think you would care about Valentine's Day enough for it to be disappointing.

I'm wondering why the would was used in there, and I would like to know the differenece between these sentences:

I don't think you care about Valentine's Day enough for it to be disappointing.

I don't think you will care about Valentine's Day enough for it to be disappointing.

I understand that the modal would can be used for prediction. Would this use of would have to do with prediction use?

Thanks so much. I would appreciate any help!

I'm wondering the same thing because it doesn't sound correct to my ear.

I don't think you will care about Valentine's Day enough for it to be disappointing.
The first is about "your" caring in general, always, usually, about Valentine's Day. The second is about "your" caring about the next Valentine's Day which is presumably coming up soon.

I don't think so, but the sentences are somewhat unusual to begin with, so it's hard to say.

I do not find your first sentence acceptable- 'would' seems very awkward there.

The second sentence means 'on the basis of what I know about you I don't think V Day means much to you and anything about it will upset you'.

The third is indeed a prediction- something is going to happen which will change your feelings about V Day [perhpas the speaker knows the listener is about to be dumped- certainly you need rather a special situation for it to work!].
