Is Valentines Day an accurate measure of love?

Valentines Day can be a mixed experience for some relationships.

Some couples see Valentines Day as an essential ingredient of their romantic and intimate lives.

Accordingly, they plan, organise and manage the day with relative ease and comfort. Indeed, it can enhance their love, intimacy and connection.

However, for other couples it’s more complicated!

Millions of men and women sweat nervously as Valentines Day approaches.

There are thousands of thoughts going through the minds of thousands, probably millions, of men and women.

Possibly,  it’s fair to say, more likely men doing the sweating than women!

Valentines Day

Expressions of love may never be captured in one day.

The pressure of Valentines Day depends how much you get seduced by the commercial hype and your capacity to genuinely express love and romance to your partner as a natural form of communication.

Take the pressure off!

It’s highly likely you already know how to express your love and appreciation of your partner. Think for a moment of:

  • All the things your partner likes
  • The activities they enjoy
  • What makes them smile
  • Their passions

If you don’t know, now is the time to find out!

How do you do love and romance?

Valentines Day doesn’t have to be the one day of the year to show love.

However, how you express your love to your partner is important.

Do you:

  • Tell them ‘I love you” regularly
  • Do stuff for them
  • Buy surprise gifts throughout the year
  • Take them out to dinner, holidays, weekends away
  • Show physical affection
  • Stay in touch throughout the day
  • Compromise your own needs sometimes
  • Make yourself available when they are struggling
