You have the gift wrapped, card signed and wine ready, but what on earth are you going to make for your romantic Valentine's Day dinner? How about the delicious recipe that Food Network's celebrity chef, Anne Burrell, has planned out for you!
Valentine's Day should be special and romantic for couples, but it may actually be someone outside the marriage who is getting the attention and special gifts. AOL reports that February 13th is becoming just as busy for florists, restaurants and others because it's the day men take out their mistresses. In this situation, everyone loses.
Valentine’s Day often feels like Valentine’s Month, doesn't it? Especially when we look around and see all of the happy couples fawning over each other while sharing secret glances, intimate moments and Desserts. Ugh! Citizens of the Toad Kingdom, I would guess that some of you ask, "When is it my turn to split the Chocolate Decadence?" Right? And How will you know your Prince Charming (PC) when you meet him - whether from an Online Dating Site or at the local library?
Call me a cynic, but nothing breeds disappointment and disillusionment quite like Valentine's Day. If you're in a relationship, then it's a day loaded with romantic expectations. If you're single, then you're likely to be dwelling on what you don't have and feeling lonely in the process. In addition, all parties—single, married, dating—will be suffering from a mild form of temporary amnesia. It happens every year. People tend to forget all the romantic gestures and moments they've experienced on the 364 days leading up to Valentine's Day, and all that matters is what happens on February 14, and February 14 alone. Call it amnesia, or tunnel vision. Both terms are rather accurate, and both require various coping mechanisms.
Do you want to give your sweetheart something extra special for Valentine's Day? Are you tired of the same old flowers, candy, corny greeting card and dinner routine? As lovely and appreciated as these gifts can be, what if this year you give your beloved something that they would never see coming, something that will make both of you happy and is totally free?
Valentine's Day is the holiday for romance and romantic gestures. Why not take advantage of this day dedicated to love to improve your marriage? With a few simple switch-ups, you can put some practices in place that will improve your marriage for Valentine's Day and beyond!
