Moving on from the negativity, I've been asked to blog about my ideal valentines/date. This question has been pondering around for a long time from people asking me where to take or what to do with their dates. Now I am no expert on this matter, neither am I aware who you or your date to be is for that matter to give any informed ideas... But for 'special' dates likes these all I can give for this is to say, lets be honest these dates are more than often for the girls - now I'm not saying guys don't appreciate large expressions of love, it's just that it's more of a girl thing.
In which, all I have to say is that 'cheesy' and acts of chivalry (no matter how much she says it's cringy) are loved by all girls... As long as it's from the person she likes - if not than it remains cringy. So if it's gifts you're after the safe option is to go for the typical flowers, chocolates and other gifts - however there are bonus points for taking the typical and adding your own spin to it (which would make you more memorable too).
On to the date itself - the usual dinner and movies, maybe try somewhere nicer than the usual and if you insist on going somewhere - go somewhere away from the usual, somewhere with an amazing view, somewhere you like to go to escape from everything. I can't stress enough that it's not about where you go but the company that you're with that makes all the difference.
Lastly, Valentines does not necessarily mean that you are limited to spending it with your partner, 'loved ones' span into friends and family too, and lets not forget yourself.
I hope you all enjoy this 14th day of the second month.
