You may recoil at all the hoopla surrounding Valentine’s Day. The expensive flowers and cards, or a candle lite dinner for two. Look at all the restaurants falling over themselves with special, pricey menus. Never mind the many soft cuddly toys you can buy for your loved one.
Forget all that, unless you have the money. Lets get down to basics on Valentine’s Day couples around the world make an affirmation of their love for their partner with a card, chocolates, a meal, etc.
This post is for those of you who care for your partner but have no wish to get caught up in all the hype, and emptying your wallet in the process.
In my experience you can be very effective putting your message across by making it simple. Your partner would love you to take them out for a meal or receive an expensive present, but it’s just not important. What does matter to your partner is that you really care for them. You can express that sentiment by:
A, Going on your computer and locating a free electronic card service. You will be able to choose one of several card styles available, and then decide what words you want to write on your card. Then you can send it to your partner’s email address.
B, You can also write a message on a post it note and leave it somewhere where it will easily be found. Saying “I love you” and leaving it on the fridge door is guaranteed to bring a smile to your partner’s face.
C, Why don’t you fix a meal for both of you, especially if that gesture is rare coming from you, it will be all the more effective, and will really be appreciated even if you burn everything to a crisp!
Valentine’s Day may be the focus of expressing your feelings for your loved one, but we also have Christmas and birthdays when we do the same thing. Why don’t you do any of the above gestures on the spur of the moment anytime of the year. Expressing your love, completely out of the blue, would mean so much more that your loved one would think you are after a favor, or done something wrong!
