So many expectations, so few fulfilled…

With Valentine’s Day less than a week away we have been fielding tons of questions on what to expect from the guy in your life on the “big day”. Frankly, while we all love a good holiday that guilts the loved ones in our lives to shower us with gifts and sweet nothings, we’d like to provide a little perspective.

99% of guys don’t really care about Valentine’s Day. Actually, that number might actually be a little light. It’s more likely that 99.99% of guys don’t care about Valentine’s Day. The only reason they might pretend to care is to not make you mad make you happy.  The key to this holiday is to keep your expectations low. If you are expecting to be swept off your feet, and get a card, its probably going to piss you off. If you are expecting a card, and get a dinner its a win. Expect Nothing + Get Something = Be Satisfied.

We’d prefer to spend Valentine’s Day focusing on what the people we are dating do the rest of the 364 days. Do they call? Do they make plans? Do they make you feel good? These are the things that will last a lot longer than those flowers dying in the vase on your counter. So give your guy a break if he doesn’t rent a private jet to take you to dinner in Paris on V-Day.
