Can you just feel it in the air? There's nothing like love, huh?
It's "Boo Season #2" – better known to the masses as St. Valentine's Day! It's that one day a year that you have to prove to that special someone how much you care...because the other 364 days just really don't matter.
It's also that one day per year that most guys seem to have a shortage of creativity. I've seen guys stand in line on Feb. 14th with an arm load of candy and roses and leftover cards from Walgreens because they waited to the last minute and simply did not do their proper planning.
Valentine's Day is supposed to be a day of love and warm and fuzzy feelings, at least for the special person in our lives. It wasn't meant to be a stressful day for you. It doesn't have to be a chore...neither does it have to be expensive.
Besides, it's the thought that counts, right? Short on thoughts? Well, don't fret my friend. As always, I'm here to save the day.
These days, places such as "Groupon," "Living Social" and "SweetJack" have made it very easy and affordable to buy almost anything. And during "Boo Season #2," a guy can really look like a real Valentine's Day professional. From candy to chocolate-covered strawberries to roses delivered to that special person, this can be a godsend for that guy who is on a budget. You can actually pay only a fraction of the cost of what everyone else is paying...and your special someone will never know.
Don't like standing in long lines to have dinner? Me either! Why not prepare dinner at home? There are a ton of great recipes that don't require a great deal of culinary skills. How do you find them? Google! It doesn't take much to prepare a nice candle light dinner for the one you love. Top it off with a nice inexpensive bottle of wine.
Here are a few extras:
Play her favorite song.
Just call to say "I Love You."
Whisper sweet things in her ear.
Hold her hand.
Sing her a song.
Pay her cell phone bill.
OK, maybe the last one's not very creative. But you get the idea right?
Oh yeah, here's one more thing. Don't wait until next Thursday to buy a Valentine's Day card. Go and pick one up today. There's no excuse. I mean they've been there since the day after Christmas.
There you have it! It all starts with ideas...and now you have a few of them. And you have seven whole days to make it happen.
So get it in gear, times a wasting.
