Happy Valentine’s Day! Hopefully, you got everything together for your significant other. I have heard so many stories of crazy dates, stunts, and gifts from friends and acquaintances regarding February 14, I had to write an article about them. Well, just the bad stuff. Some came from guys and some from gals.
Here my Top 10 Worst Valentines Day Ideas reposted:
10. Fast Food Is Not Appropriate- So, this seems to be the most controversial. Some couples love fast food and I guess that is good for them. However, I encourage couples to splurge on this one day. It will be fun and much more romantic.
09. Scary Movie Is a No-No- I knew this girl who thought it would be funny to scare her husband while he was showering for their big date. She dressed like Mother from Psycho and came in with a butcher knife. Needless to say, their date got canceled. And the story is still a sore spot.
08. Guts and Glory Are Not For Valentines- If you take your bride and girlfriend out for a movie, good idea, as long as it’s not something with a lot of blood and guts. Be sensitive to her tastes and take her to something a bit more romantic or at least relaxing (If she doesn’t like ooey-gooey).
07. Sad Is Not For Valentines- Ladies, you want to watch a romantic film or a good drama, great! However, something with a sad ending is not ideal for your man. As I said above, be sensitive to their tastes too. We don’t want tears for a night that’s supposed to be about romance.
06. Scatological Humor, uh No- Guys, we like a good flatulence joke, but take it out of your thinking for Valentine’s Day. It is just not appropriate for the day. Trust me. This is a day to be romantic, not to talk about your stomach.
05. No Songs That Preach- Who does not love a good romantic song for Valentine’s Day? However, playing preachy songs like We Don’t Talk Anymore, Rolling In The Deep, I Want It That Way, or Fix You, that’s not a smart move. It could send a message you’re not intending to send.
04. Don’t Get Cheap Gifts- Now, I’m not talking about the price per se. I’m talking about how it looks. It should NOT look cheap. Whether you’re picking out flowers, watches, jewelry, candy, or whatever, make sure that the gift is nice. Get roses, buy a nice watch, real jewelry, and good candy (preferably in a heart-shaped box).
03. Wait Until The Next Day For Serious Conversations- Valentine’s dinner is not the time or the place to bring up serious concerns. Enjoy the day and evening together. Don’t bring up a topic that will cause an argument.
02. Don’t Go Stinky- Take a shower, shave or trim, do your hair, blow your nose, and wear clothes that look nice and smell good. It is a good idea to be hygienic on Valentine’s Day. Make sure you are prepped, well-groomed, and have good breath.
01. Don’t Break Up- This one takes the cake. Do NOT break up with your significant other on Valentine’s Day. I’m pretty sure that is the 11th Commandment. It is the worst idea ever and there are serious repercussions. Have that talk before or after. A good while after.
