How Bad Was Your Valentine's Day?
For the Guys....Three Ways to Make Up for a Bad Valentine's Day:
Hopefully you had an amazing evening full of romance. But if your lady DIDN'T appreciate the Hunk of Love Teddy Bear or gas station chocolates you got her . . . here are three ways to make up for it.
#1.) Acknowledge Your Mistake. This isn't the time to justify your good intentions with the old "you're making a big deal about nothing" excuse. To her, Valentine's Day IS a big deal. Your best bet is to start with a sincere apology for your screw-up.
#2.) Make It Up to Her. Your original Valentine's Day plan was lame, so now it's time to impress her with a thoughtful and unique surprise.
--Is there a nice restaurant she's been wanting to try? And by "nice" we mean "expensive." You're more likely to get a reservation this weekend anyway. Or surprise her with a getaway NEXT weekend . . . and say you wanted to wait until AFTER the Valentine's Day craziness.
--If you're low on cash, it's more about the personal touches in your plan, not how much money you drop. So instead of dinner at a fancy restaurant, try making her a romantic meal at your place and give her a heartfelt, handwritten card.
#3.) Have a Backup Make-up Plan. Depending on how mad she is, you should prepare yourself for rejection when it comes to your make-up plan.
--If she refuses all of your initial ideas, try this backup plan that doesn't require her participation at all: Have a surprise lunch from her favorite restaurant delivered to her at work on Monday with a handwritten note from you. (Ask Men)
