How to ruin Valentine’s Day ….
…for every woman around her.by Ashley M. Kirchner
Some women pretend they don’t care about Valentine’s Day. They will nod as we go on and on about how Valentine’s Day is the brainchild of greeting card companies. She may even mean it. But do not be fooled.
Gentlemen, Valentine’s Day is a test. You can fail or join the honors program.
Failure is believing you’re above this holiday and not getting her anything. Be warned: this can be a relationship killer.
Securing a passing mark (a D to a B) requires standard Valentine’s gift-giving. The generic card, a rose and some candy are the minimum. A nice dinner and dancing add bonus points to your score. But the highest scores are achieved by delivering a surprise and giving something permanent. Get something that will remind her of Valentine’s Day every time she sees it. Diamond stud earrings perhaps? If you’ve been together a while, they’re the perfect gift, serious but not too serious. And if you’re already married, well, the only thing a woman likes better than a diamond is two diamonds.
And when she wears them to work the next day, you’ll receive an A+ from her friends and lower grade of all of their boyfriends. Nice work.
Okay this made me laugh so hard because I’ve seen it happen! All the ladies at work are mad because the boyfriend didn’t “give the right gift.” Well gentlemen, I really think that if you know your lady, you know what she will expect. If it is so new, you just don’t know what to do, here are the basics:
- She’s going to get you a card so…go pick one up on Saturday, when you can stand there with all the other men. You will know the right one when you read it.
- Some ladies expect flowers, they are the minimum, have you been listening to her this week? Has she mentioned flowers at all…has she mentioned her favorite color? Do you want to send flowers? If so, do it. Get online now and get the order in before it’s too late or plan where you are going to pick some up, it would be horrible if the flower shops/stores ran out. (If she tells you someone else is getting flowers, that is your HINT.)
- Yes most women like diamonds but…if you are new in a relationship and your gift budget is Target not Tiffany’s we women like lot’s of different types of earings (hoops, dangling, or even rhinestone) so you have 5 days to look at what types of earing she is wearing and tell the gal at the counter your budget and what style you saw her in last. We love to help you find something for another woman.
- OR…those gloves that you can use on a touch screen would be nice!!!…Agolves.
Again, it isn’t about what you gave and how much it cost it is about the fact that you were thoughtful about it. I hope you don’t think I am telling you you have to get her anything, but she probably has something for you.
What ever you do, do not ignore Valentine’s Day it if you want to see her the next week.
