How to spend your Valentine Day whether in a relationship or not

Every year February 14, is celebrated as Saint Valentines Day all across the world. Valentine’s Day is the most awaited day of the year for all youngsters . There is a holiday on this day so that all lovers can enjoy and express there feelings to one whom they love. Even though the history of St. Valentine’s Day and the patron Saint behind it is shrouded in mystery but we all treat month of February as the Month of Romance. On which lovers express their love for each other which involves mutual exchange of gift, sending Valentine's cards,flowers, confectioneries and much more. Although some still holds the believe that they have better things to do with their money than to shower their loved ones with over-priced material things. But you don't really have to spend a lot of money to show him/her you care. 

And regardless of your past or current belief about Valentine's day, there are many ways to make the day special whether one is in single or in a relationship.But first remember that the day isn't just about exchanging of gift, is a day to reflect on and share your love with one another.

Valentine's Day for Couples

Some couples have long-standing traditions for Valentines Day, like returning to the restaurant where they got engaged or where they first met. Other couples are less naturally romantic. They don't need to wait till Val before their creative mind start working. But if you are still at lose..Here re few suggestion.

1. Do something your partner has always wanted to try. Surprise your husband with you normally refuse to do.
2. Write your partner a letter or poem.People often forget to tell their loved ones how much they're care. Write a heartfelt note,even if it's three paragraph and tell your partner how wonderful he or she is. 
3. Do something you haven't done in ages. Did you once love to club out together, dance together, did one of you love to cook when you first met? Try your hand on this and recreate a happy memory together. 
4.Plan a special dinner, and wash it down with a good wine. and romantic day in eachothers arms 
5.Give your spouse a gift you know he or she will value a lot. Like something he or she has been hoping to buy.

Valentine's Day for New Relationships

Here Valentines Day can be tricky, you may probably think, just how many dates have we had to think we are already in a"relationship"? If you've only been out a few times, can you expect him/her to send gift or flowers? Is he/she going to be mad if you don't plan a romantic evening? What is going to happen on that day? You may probably think how can you celebrate love when you're not even sure how much you like each other or if you will eventually end up with eachother? 

I will advice that you guys should sit down and talk about it. You might find that you both feel the same way about that day. Maybe you were both secretly hoping the other wanted to celebrate or not. So in the end,both of you wont be disppointed. But hey it's just a silly holiday.Nevertheless you can still try the following:

1.You can still exchange gift, flowers, cards etc.

2. You can spend the day together while trying to identify what both of you can achieve together.Remember this is the first val day, you two will be spending together.So make it count.

3. Make it as romantic as it could be.

4. Write a poem for him or her.

5. Enjoy each other company,warmth as much as possible.

Valentine's Day for the singles

I know how boring and depressing valentine day could be for the singles out there. But don't fret, Valentine is just a day and if you are not in any relationship now, there are ways you can make yourself happy that you wont know when the day will roll off and the Val madness will soon fade off.

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be a romantic holiday, but it can be a time when you remind all of your friends, family and colleagues how much you love and appreciate them.But most people feel bad because they don't have a love in their life.

Don't feel there is nothing wrong with you if you're not in a relationship. Your worth comes from what you are, not who you're with.You may think that your old relationships as missed opportunities. But it is not.Look to the future. The best way to attract love is to feel good about your own life. Even those happy couples you see were single before the met their current love. But then they've had their share of romantic failures and heartbreaks too. 

If you are not in a relationship now doesn't meant you cant be happy. There are ways you could enjoy your valentine day without disturbing your thought.

1. Do something for yourself at home or treat yourself to something special outside. You deserve it...You can saddle yourself with a wine and a bubble bath, a trip to the massage therapist and spend the time and money you would normally have spent on a partner for Valentine's Day and devote all of that energy to yourself, instead.

2. A night curled up with a long-awaited movie or book might be perfect.

3. Go to the club or bar or attend an event.There are singles like you out there,who are out for the fun of it.
4.. You are not the only person coping with being single on Valentine's Day, there are many out there who are as single as you - find them or spend the day friends and family and cheer each other up.

5. Take some time to re-evaluate what you really want in a relationship. Are your relationships not lasting because you're choosing partners who aren't capable of maintaining a mature, loving and steady relationship? 

And finally, whether you are married, in a relationship remember love should be celebrated everyday, not just because is valentine day. And for the singles,always remember there is someone out there for you, you just have to wait. But show some love to your family, friends and hey you can val me...I'm all yours...Hehehe..Happy Valentine DAY!!!

Guess the cynical me would aver that Valentine is "just a day" and its not any different from September the 17 th or any other day for that matter... Sure people would get all lovey dovey and churn out all the mushy stuff that they can.. it doesn't change the fact that ist just a
