Will you be my Valentine?

Will you be my Valentine?

Cards, love letters, beautiful flowers and bouquets, and gifts, it is a commemoration of romantic love between spouses or partners. Obviously spending quality time with your loved one is most palpable; but there are also people who celebrate this day as a singles awareness day. So, let’s explore both themes and see what we can do to celebrate them.

If you are a simple love bird, and you are looking to ask someone to be your valentine, present her with flowers or chocolates and a card. If you are the over-achieving love bird, you might to great lengths such as hanging a “will you be my Valentine, Jane?” banner from a freeway overpass, or take her to a restaurant where a live band sings a custom melody for her. If she accepts, then you begin to plan your Valentine’s Day affair. This is where all the red, pink and white decorations come out. This is where the roses, the chocolates, and the champagne take place. Whether it’s a horse and carriage stroll along the park or beautiful lake, or a luxurious day at the spa or salon, treating your spouse to something special on this day shouldn’t be limited to only this day. Be sure to treat them consistently to romantic outings or simple quality cuddle time at home.

If you are choosing to spend Valentine’s Day as a single, you are not alone. There are plenty of other’s like you, and celebrating your single self can be even more fun than if you had a spouse. Many friends might gather and throw a “single’s party”, enhanced with strippers, party buses, and lots of booze. Take this time as an opportunity to gain self-awareness as well as express appreciation to your friends; after all, you don’t NEED to have a girlfriend or boyfriend if you have awesome friends, right? Treat YOURSELF to the spa day; go get your nails done or your hair done, or go hang with the fellas and watch sports at a bar.
