Valentine’s Day is the Super Bowl for Love. Right now, people including myself, are still thinking about last-minute details to make tonight special. I use to not like Valentine’s Day when my 7th grade crush didn’t acknowledge the carnation I sent her. If you are a little stressed for Valentine’s Day, here 5 tips to help you survive the day.

  1. Don’t judged your entire relationship based on this day. There is no guarantee things will work as place. 
  2. Don’t get so hyped over surprising your partner.  By reducing expectations, it will make the special event much greater when it works out, and not as painful if it doesn’t.
  3. Even if the gift isn’t exactly what you wanted. Remember it came from the heart and be honest and tell him/her. It’s how you build honesty and trust.
  4. If you are unsure what to get, use the K.I.S.S. method. A simple card, or love letter that truly expresses your feelings.
  5. If you don’t have a Valentine, don’t stress about it. There is always next year. Keep your options open and your expectations clear.

Happy Valentine’s Day and beyond.
