I do love Valentine’s Day. Call me a hopeless romantic but I love all that clichéd stuff. I love buying the flowers, chocolates, perfume and some expensive underwear. Sure, it’s not original but some days are all about old fashioned romance. Weird gestures of love are best saved for another day, an engagement or anniversary.
So what does a hopeless romantic do for Valentine’s Day? After all of the above, it’s time for a home cooked meal, some Barry White and a lot of love.
I’ve never been a big fan of going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day. People all crammed in together and no privacy. Hardly romantic is it? I much prefer to cook up a treat at home.
You have to give the love of your life your ‘A’ game: a slow seduction of champagne, fine food and whispered ‘sweet nothings’. Then a little slow dance together in the candle light.
If this does not earn you brownie points, nothing will.
But what if your partner isn’t romantic? Hmmm. I have to confess that I’ve never dated anyone who wasn’t romantic. I’d be totally stumped.
Is there anything that you can do?
Maybe you just have to put up with it?
Maybe your partner has other qualities that compensate?
Or maybe you need a new partner?
After all, without romance and passion, your just ‘good’ friends.
