Valentine's Day is for Love

Heartbreak

What do men want? Yes, many men want to spend the night out on the town with their women, flaunting her beauty and her other assets for the world to see. Many men want to shower their love with material gifts, sometimes with an ulterior motive to get her into bed. Some men refuse to buy what they consider commercial and silly cards and flowers, but they often refuse to do other things that might please the women in their life. Men want a woman to listen to him, acknowledge and appreciate him, love him the way he is, encourage him to succeed at whatever he dreams about, and to suffer silently when he falls short of her desires. Men want love.

What do YOU want for Valentine's Day? What are you willing to give and become for Valentine's Day?  The real key is for couples to discover so much about their beloved partners that they create a Valentine's Day and all the trappings just to please the other person, just to see the other person smile and glow.  What one person desires may be the exact opposite of what somebody else desires, so we can't just follow some script; we have to discover for ourselves what works best for this partner in this relationship and what works best for our own self.
