There are many reasons why new relationships are challenging. There’s so much to negotiate. So much figure out. One of the more annoying aspects of dealing with a new love is considering how holidays, most notably Valentine’s Day, figures into your new relationship. Consider this situation:
You’ve been dating for 5 weeks and you really like this new person. You certainly haven’t said the L-word yet, but you spend time together 3 or 4 nights a week and share a strong physical attraction. As luck would have it Valentine’s Day is one week away. Which seems like the appropriate way to handle the romantic holiday.
1. Ignore it. Don’t mention it and hope that he/she doesn’t say a word
2. Book a special dinner in a nice place. That’s it.
3. Give a very romantic card.
4. Give a standard Valentine’s Day gift – candy, roses, etc
5. Give a thoughtful and unique gift of quality
6. Some combination of 2, 3, 4 and 5.
There are so many options and with each the chances of missing the mark are high. Too serious. Too sexy. Too light-hearted. eHarmony has worked with Valentine Cards expert Tiny Prints to come up with several cards that we feel are right for the many relationship stages.
