The most romantic day is nearing and finally you have found yourself a Valetine! Firstly kudos to you champ for having tasted the essence of love. For first timers the pressure of celebrating Valentine’s Day and making the experience a unique one for his/her partner is immense. Sometimes the pressure can be so intense that we end up fumbling things up!
So all you first-timers out there take a deep breath and relax. Valentine’s Day is celebrated to enjoy the feeling of being in love. Don’t spoil the mood by trying too hard! All your efforts will be fruitful if there’s love involved in it, isn’t it?
However, we can be a little careful while performing a few actions, so that you don’t end up making embarrassing mistakes! I have listed a few do’s and don’ts for you. Hope this helps you guys.
Don’t Look/Behave Desperate!
That’s the last thing you want to be termed, desperate! This is your first Valentine’s Day with your partner, there’s no need to go overboard. You can dine at a restaurant, enjoy a couple of drinks, get to know each other. Let things happen in spontaneity, and not in the planned way. You bet, you will love the spontaneity!
Do buy Gifts but Hefty Price Tags don’t matter!
Not that gifts matter a lot, the thought put behind buying each gift is what matters the most. Gifts act as a memoir of your meeting and will always keep the sweet memories of your first date, alive! Having said that, many people have the habit of over analyzing the gifts, which can be offensive. Love doesn’t come with a price tag, and so do gifts. Appreciate the efforts taken by your partner.
Don’t Spend a Fortune
I agree that Valentine’s is a special day, however spending whole of your salary isn’t a sensible thing to do. To avoid spending a lot, make sure you make all the reservations well in advance. Make a expense sheet for the day, and spend accordingly. There’s no point having fun on a single day and living in a not-so-comfortable-situation for the rest of the month!
Don’t Even Utter the Word Ex!
Nostalgia can take you in a different world, but an unreal one! It is human, to have a few nostalgic moments while you are enjoying the date with your current partner. However, keep your feelings to yourself. Don’t even discuss details of your previous relationship and how you kept surprising his/her with gifts. Doing so will only increase your nostalgic moments list, as the current relationship will be history in no time!
Don’t go Overboard with Expectations
After all, it’s just another day! Many of us have this notion of having a ‘partner sweeping you off your feet’ experience, thanks to our lovely Mills and Boons. However, just because you are excited about Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean your partner also shares the same excitement. There’s no point in stressing up just because the date wasn’t exactly similar to the one you dreamt of! Appreciate the efforts taken by your partner to make the day special. Make sure you make the most of the day and enjoy what it is really meant for – Love!
