- Someone may say “I Love You” to you!
- A holiday where you are expected to eat chocolate!
- Flowers in February are a lift in the gloom of winter.
- It is the perfect excuse for a lunch/dinner/night out!
Let’s say there is no one special in your life, and you don’t have your own Valentine. No need to despair. You can do all the 5 things above for yourself. In fact even if you do have a special person in your life often it is best to do all 5 things for yourself. This insures no disappointment.
That last statement is cynical but come on!
How often have you heard from girlfriends their disappointment over getting chocolate covered cherries? What about the disappointment when you hear about the pitiful bouquet picked up from the side of the road vendor? We have all heard the stories of these feeble attempts from partners, husbands or boyfriends.
I have heard of extravagant expenses for a “perfect ” Valentine’s Day from a woman who did not have the money to spend on such things. Also I have heard of a husband doing the same when funds were needed for other necessities! Haven’t you and why? Drama??
So here are my 5 tips how to enjoy Valentine’s Day drama free:
- Exchange cards if you have a Valentine.
- Like chocolates? Buy yourself some.
- Like flowers? Pick up a bouquet or a new house plant
- Call your parents, kids, grands or siblings and say, “I Love You”, tell your partner or pet!
- Take yourself out to lunch/dinner and or a movie. Always the perfect time to see an Academy Award nominated film!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Any recommendations?
