Here are three tips for Valentines Day, for the guy in every situation:
For the Ones in Long Term Relationships
When she says she doesnâ€™t care about Valentineâ€™s Day (or youâ€™ve been together for awhile), what she really means is: She doesnâ€™t want a dinner at a crowded restaurant, an overpriced card or chocolates but trust me, all women want something. Here are my tips:
- Always busy with work? Go to the market together and buy food for dinner. Over dinner discuss and plan upcoming weekly dates â€“ skating at Nathan Philips Square, going to the AGO to see King Tut, dinner at that restaurants sheâ€™s always talking about. Makes a bigger impact if you write it down, put in your blackberry and keep to it.
- Never give presents or cards? Buy her something pretty. Iit doesnâ€™t need to be expensive â€“ a unique necklace from Love of Mine Boutique on Queen or sexy cute underwear from our Dawg House, and a blank card where you write something personal (Hallmark doesnâ€™t know your woman like you do, why let them do it for you?).
- Donâ€™t really help out around the house? Make her dinner or order quality take out, and clean up the kitchen while she has a bath (that youâ€™ve run for her, lit a few candles and poured a glass of wine).
For the Ones in a New Relationship
If youâ€™ve just started dating and still in the honeymoon phase, remember what you do for your â€œfirst Valentineâ€ will set the tone for the rest of them to come!
For the Single Ones
Be happy that youâ€™re not spending money, and if you have some good single girl friends, take them out to a bar!
What to get him? A wake up surprise. (or a Gotstyle gift certificate)
