Recently, I heard that on Valentine's Day, 70% of couples don't have sex. This was quite astonishing as most would assume that Valentine's Day would be the one day throughout the year that couples are 'doing it'. But not so! Apparently, because of the pressure put on the guy to produce that unforgettable Valentine's Day for his beloved that when he falls short, the last thing the gal wants to do is have sex.
So why all the hype? Do we really need a day during the year to remind us of how much we love someone? Shouldn't that be an everyday thing anyway? It would certainly seem so, however, that isn't always the case. For most, it is very difficult to share how we feel with those we love most in our lives. Valentine's Day is that one day a year when it makes opening ourselves up to expressing feelings & emotions (outside of the bedroom) politically correct and completely acceptable.
So, how will you spend your Valentine's Day with the one you love? Valentine's Day for some can be that opportunity to redeem oneself if you've fallen short in telling & showing the one you love how you truly feel. It can also be an opportunity to make a renewed commitment to that special person in your life to the relationship that you share. It isn't so much about what you do that matters but more how you go about it. A lot of thought and creativity you put into the day can go a long way. This can be done without it costing an arm & a leg. Anyone can go through the motions of life, be it in relationships or in other areas. But it is the memories we make and the lasting impressions they leave that make all the difference.
