Valentine's Day is tricky terrain in any relationship. You want to show you care but to the right degree. In a new relationship? You don't want to go too over the top and scare them off. In a long-term committed relationship? You need something original that you haven't already done. Single? You need to get out and mingle. Read below for the ultimate dating guide...
Don't pretend it's not happening, and completely skirt around the day. Confront it, make it funny.
You haven't put a label on things, and it's deffo too early to spend V-Day together, so just be honest. They're on the same page, but are too frightened to talk about it too. Send them a text along the lines of "Valentine's Day is coming up, that's a lot of pressure, shall we give it a miss or do something non-cringe?".
This your 8th Valentine's Day together? Romantic dinner and drinks getting a bit boring? Inject some spice and fun into the day and do something out of your comfort zone. Go play ping pong, go to a comedy show, go see burlesque. Get out of your V-Day funk. Oh, and sex toys. Lots of sex toys. Always the key.
Single on Valentine's Day? Yup, that sucks. It feels like the world and their dog are in love and getting engaged, rather than spending the evening under your duvet crying at rom coms, get out and mingle. Go to a Galentine's Day event, or a single's Valentine's day party. Plus, if you're after a hook up, this is *statistically* the easiest day of the year to get laid- all the single people in the world are feeling lonely and just want a warm body. Enjoy.
