Anyone can catch your eye – but it takes someone special to catch your heart.
Valentine’s Day is for Pussies
Says who? Feb. 14th is for love, romance… and, of course, sex! It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and take your significant other for granted. Valentine’s Day provides the jolt some of us need to stop and express our affection – emotional AND physical – and just let the dishes sit for a night. They’re not going anywhere.
How do I love thee? List out your lover’s favorite attributes for them to read. Write them on a series of Post-It notes cleverly placed around the house, or fill a blank notebook with things you love about your special someone that they can flip through again and again.
Surprise! Plan an outing – whether just for an afternoon or for a whole week – without your partner’s knowledge. Make sure you take care of ALL the details, including securing their time off work and hiring the babysitter!
Live it up. Book a spa day together and enjoy being pampered in tandem! Or, for the more budget-conscious, create your own spa day at home. Light candles, turn on some relaxing tunes, take a bath (together, of course!) and then take turns giving each other massages.
Keep it simple. Sometimes the best thing to do is … nothing. Set aside a day, a night – or both! – to just relax. Turn off the phones and close the blinds, put on your comfy pajamas, order takeout, and veg out with a couple of books or a Netflix binge.
Do something risqué. Treat yourselves to a sexy indulgence: Head out to a burlesque show, go shopping for sex toys or arrange a boudoir photo shoot. Then go home and see what happens. (I think we all know what happens.)
“Falling in love is so hard on the knees.” — Aerosmith
