How to Create an Amazing Valentine’s Day whether you are Single, in Love or Casually Dating
Valentine’s Day is upon us again and what a great time to look at the love and beauty that surrounds us.
Whether paired up or solo are we content in our own hearts? Can we grasp the truth that love starts on the inside? So many hearts feel so a lot of pressure since the focus is romance and often those we are in love with don’t step up to our expectations. Why ponder the lack and be grateful for any love in your life right now. If you can’t find a trinket of love in your heart, perhaps it is time to look at love from a different set of eyes. Love comes from giving it away and often we need to give ourselves permission to love again. This media crazy day can stir the heart strings ... if you let it.
Take a look inside and ask are you giving yourself the love you’re asking for? Love flows & expands when its appreciated and shared from a generous heart. Think of all the people you love in your life and express it.
Be your own Valentine and treat yourself to something sweet and make some fun plans. Don’t stay home alone and pout. So if you are alone this Valentine’s Day there is love to express by taking the lead and plan a gathering of friends (even a few) and go to dinner, go out dancing, bowling or to a show. I call it the "LOVE CLUB" and I have done this ritual for years.
If you have a fun group and don't want to be out in the mix of the crowds, have everyone bring a dish over to your place and have a potluck and rent "When Harry Met Sally" or other old romantic favorites. Have each person bring a gift (like a flower or chocolates) and celebrate love and friendship together. Count your blessings and toast to the love yet to come. Tell each other your vision and the type of person you’re looking for and have your friends support you with your search.
Another option is to play Cupid and bring along an extra single friend (of the opposite sex) who doesn’t know anyone in your group and who knows what magic could happen?! Plan ahead! Be in charge ... Be your own Valentine! There are also many events and parties happening around town so check the papers or plan your own.
If you have a special Valentine be grateful and take time to express the reason you have chosen this heart to cherish. It’s a day to be romantic and playful. Ladies often men feel so much pressure to know what you want, so subtle hints are great in casual conversation. You can also take the lead and tell your man you have something special planned and have an action plan of your own. My husband travels, so I often take the lead and create Valentines theme nights with a special dinner, candles all over the house with rose petals leading to a bath, massage and romance. Use your imagination and remember, men are visual so wears something that brings out the goddess in you!
Casual daters don’t be afraid to send a token of affection even if you are not in love. Valentine’s Day is a day to express feelings… but no worries…you don’t have to commit. Since I work with many single men, I discovered Valentine’s Day is just not a big deal for most men. Just another day for Hallmark to make millions according to many of the men I speak with. For women, this romantic day still pushes some buttons, even if we don’t like to admit it.
Here are a few suggestions for people who are just starting to date to do for Valentine’s Day without going overboard. Whether you’re a man or a woman, a small thoughtful gift makes your day and you don’t have to spend tons of money.
1. Send a card that is funny and leave a small box of chocolates for your new friend
2. Put a few Hershey kisses at their door step with a single flower.
3. Call to say hello and wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day and say that you were thinking of them
4. Invite them out to lunch instead of an expensive dinner.
5. You could discuss your thoughts and Get Real by saying "hey I really like you but we aren’t at the "Valentine’s Day stage yet.""
6. Ask them to join you to get together with friends for a dinner to make it less formal. Then your friends can check out your date and you can please everyone!
