With Valentine's day just around the corner we thought that we would try and help you out with your plans for the big day. Often, one partner or both feel a lot of pressure to come up with a big, fancy, mind blowing plan, but we're here to say that isn’t always what is necessary, or even expected. Sure some people love to be showered with fancy gifts, sparkly things, flowers, and expensive wine but the perfect date can look very different to others. Take Twig and Barry themselves for example.
You might be like Barry and his partner, who would rather escape the daily grind of self employment and kids and tune out the world for a few hours. Your idea of a good date is getting in the truck, cranking your favorite tunes (in their case some heavy rock) and heading west with no real plan. These two have been together since junior high, and have now been parents for almost 10 years, so it is important to them to make time to do the things they used to do before they had a family. And, they need it to be affordable.
Or, maybe you are more like Twig and his better half, and you enjoy getting dressed up, uncorking your favorite bottle of wine over a nice meal and then checking out the latest play at the theatre. These two are still "honeymooning", with their wedding coming up this summer, and they enjoy trying new things together every chance they get.
So what's on the agenda for these guys? They will have to come up with a nice balance of couple wants: here's how it breaks down.
There is no right or wrong to how you spend your day because at the end of it all what matters is that you spent it with the one you love.
No date, no worries. If you're looking for love, invest some time at your favourite places. The chances of meeting someone with the same interests is higher than if you stay home and do nothing. And if you're not looking for love, make a plan to do something you enjoy with a friend or family. It might be "just a day" to some people, but we think life is too full of pressure and stress to give up a chance to celebrate the good things in life!
