Valentine’s Day has to be the greatest excuse in the world to be theatrically corny and unabashedly romantic. It is a great opportunity to work on the joys of your relationship. Who knows? You get the right thing going and some of it might stick.
Abandon the ordinary, go that extra mile this Valentine’s Day and express your love without fear for this is the moment you need to seize. Do something that your partner will love.
I intend to sit down next to my love with chocolates and a bottle of wine and take it from there. Here are a few ideas that might help you:
- First of all, show him/her that you love them
You should be doing it without me having to tell you and no matter what you have in store, above all else, show your other half that you love him/her. Say “Happy Valentine’s Day” at the stroke of the midnight hour.
Get flowers, cards, gifts, and candy because they want to know that you love them. Be extra sweet to them, and tell them you LOVE them. That will transform your stressful Valentine’s Day into a loving occasion. I guarantee it.
- Relive Your First Date
There’s a good chance that the beginning of your relationship was the time when you made the most effort to show your romantic side, so why not turn back the clock and remind your partner how charming you were when you were wooing them?
Everyone loves it when their partner remembers details from when they were still getting to know each other. Think back to your first date, and visit the same places, eat the same food and do the same things that first sparked your romance.
- Roses are Forever
Give your beloved a dozen roses. On each stem attach a note for a future date – to do something that they would enjoy (For example, “Watch a play together”) & ladies, if you think only women should receive flowers on Valentine’s Day, think again. Do something different and send a lovely bouquet of roses to tell your man how special he is to you.
- Become a Poet
For an immensely romantic Valentine’s Day date, arrange a private poetry reading session for your partner. Pick out a few romantic poems or sonnets from writers like John Donne, Elizabeth Barret Browning or maybe SahirLudhiyanwi and read them aloud. For company, on a checkered cloth, lay on goodies like cheese, French croissant, doughnuts and some tasty fried chicken. Bring out the best wine you have and raise a toast to your love this Valentine’s Day.
For a romantic experience on land, try hiking or camping through well-known but quiet trails and you might have the time of your life on a hill-top gazing at the stars and occasionally into each other’s eyes.
- Be Playful
On small pieces of paper, write down every kind of kiss that you can think of (examples: passionate, on the cheek, etc.). Then fill a red felt bag or a jar with your “kisses” and give it to your partner. Ask your spouse to pull several pieces of paper from the bag/jar, and then give your sweetheart whatever kind of kiss is described.
The best way to propose to the woman of your dreams is on Valentine’s Day. If you’ve been thinking about asking her to marry you, there’s no time like Valentine’s Day for a romantic proposal. The day is meant for lovers, after all, and getting down on one knee with a ring or red rose is one of the best ways you can profess your love for her.
You may think these ideas are corny, be assured, they are! But that’s the point: Corny works. In fact, if a Valentine’s Day gift isn’t corny, it’s probably not romantic. The fact that you’re actually doing corny things will speak volumes. When you act corny you show your loved one that you care enough to drop all pretenses and make yourself vulnerable — for them!
Finally, when in the presence of your loved one on Valentine’s Day, you may become wonderfully speechless. So it’s wise to plan ahead.Where there is great love there is great imagination. How will you say how you feel this Valentine’s Day?
