Valentine’s Day is an excellent opportunity to connect with your partner. However, the expectations placed on this date can ruin the actual time you spend together. This is why this next valentine’s we recommend you ditch the clichés and have a chilled but enjoyable time with your lover.
Don’t make dinner the main activity.
Instead of arranging a fancy dinner, have fun with your partner and endeavor in a new activity (or one that you haven’t done in a while). It can be going for a hike, signing up for a salsa class, or taking her ice skating. Anything that gets your blood pumping and promises excitement will surely bring you together and make the day extra special.
Have sex before you leave the house.
There’s a lot of pressure when it comes to ending the night with sex on Valentine’s Day. However, sex after a day packed with activities, food and drinks may not be the best idea. If you have sex before you leave the house the pressure is eliminated. Plus, your partner may not expect it, which will make it more spontaneous and sexy.
Gift experiences, not objects.
It may be tickets to see a band that she really likes, taking her to an interesting art exhibit or even getting a fancy hotel room in your own city. Experiences will not only add to your fond memories together, but they will also bring you closer in a way that a bottle of perfume or jewelry simply can’t. Also, you get to enjoy the gift too!
Even if you plan to avoid most clichés this Valentine’s day, remember that some classic gestures of love will always be well received. A flower bouquet is the perfect gift to show your partner how much you care, even if you don’t want to spend the day in a typically romantic way. Let’s face it, some clichés are there for a reason and nothing will make your lover feel more like they’re experiencing movie love like a beautiful flower bouquet.
