With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, you need to make sure that you both know where you stand.
Make sure you talk about it beforehand. You might have totally differing opinions on Valentine’s Day so it’s worth talking it through. You don’t want to get them a present if they’re not going to get you anything or vice versa as it would be totally embarrassing!
If you’re not yet ‘exclusive’ it’s best to ignore it all together. You don’t want to put pressure on them when you’ve only been on a couple of dates as it could end up being very awkward.
If you are ‘exclusive’ keep it minimal. It’s fine to have a date on Valentine’s Day but there’s no need to do anything extravagant. Don’t go all out and buy presents if it hasn’t been talked about previously.
If you need some simple, no-pressure date ideas, give these a try:
- If the weather allows, go for a picnic! It’s simple and easy and doesn’t need much prior planning. (If it’s cold, you could have one in the living room! Put a blanket down and make it really cozy!)
- Cook dinner together. This is a good way to bond and have a bit of fun together. Find out what their favourite meal is and they can show you how they like it made!
- Go out for lunch. You don’t need to go out for a big expensive dinner (which you’ll have to book weeks in advance!). Just go out for lunch together instead as there will be much less pressure.
- Go for a walk. If you’re lucky enough to live either near the sea, the countryside, or even a nice park, go for a romantic walk together.
