Not that into V-day? Here's how to celebrate with your boo without going crazy.
I know everyone always says this, but it's true: I've never really been that into Valentine's Day. I've just never seen the big appeal to the holiday. Sure, it's nice to have a random day in February where it's appropriate to eat a lot of chocolate and receive flowers, but it's never been a holiday I look forward to or place a lot of expectations on.
Luckily, I'm dating a guy who feels the same way ... and I know a lot of people who feel this way too. For those of us who enjoy celebrating love, but don't want to go over-board with expensive diamonds, elaborate dinners, and crazy vacation plans, Valentine's Day is just an excuse for a date night. Why put all that pressure on yourself if you're not even really that into the holiday? There's no reason to create that kind of tension!
This is exactly why my boyfriend and I plan a low-key Valentine's Day every year. We make dinner for ourselves instead of going out to eat, and we do something fun that we both enjoy without caring what other people think. We give each other gifts, but include a price limit. We don't advertise everything on social media. And guess what? We still have a great time. If you don't want big plans this February 14, here are 10 ways to have the perfect low-key Valentine's Day. You may even want to continue this way for the rest of your life!
