Valentine’s Day can be one of the most stressful holidays for many. For singles, it’s because you’re blatantly destined to be alone forever. For couples, it’s having to live up to these mystical expectations that drain all the romance the holiday is meant to have. While I would love for February 14th to be abolished and replaced with a second Thanksgiving, albeit my already too-snug jeans would not – it’s evident that it’s not going to happen. Today I’m giving tips to those celebrating this glorious day with their significant other. A day so glorious, it makes women freak out over what shade of brown to buy Gucci loafers for their boyfriend when really he just wants to be the mayor of titty city for the day. Okay, okay… I won’t poke fun. Read along for my tips for those sufferi- I mean, spending the day with their loves. Happy reading, kids!
If you’re expecting this post to list some shit like buy your girlfriend a Chanel bag, it’s not going to happen.
STAY THE FUCK AT HOME
Over the years, a mental image of Valentines day has been imprinted in brains everywhere. A painted picture that you’re supposed to eat at a restaurant no lower than 3 Michelin stars. Oh, and we can’t forget finishing the night with diamonds and sex on a bear skin rug in front of a fireplace. Yeahhh… no. Going out to eat is likely the most horrific decision you can make on this day. Let’s just dub it the Black Friday for restaurants. Wait times are insane, even if you have reservations, and the entire situation is like an endurance rush for the entire staff. Chances are it’ll be one big rushed dining experience that you wouldn’t have on a regular night. This isn’t fauIt of the staff, it’s just fucking busy. Skip the overpriced dinner on speed and stay at home tonight.
Going to the movies on Valentine’s Day? Fuck that. I don’t even like going during a matinee where there might be at max. three people in the entire theatre. With this attitude, is it a surprise that I’m single? In any event, I’m a nerd and generally have a gaggle of acquaintances that own projectors I can borrow. If you do too, borrow (or rent one if you don’t) and set it up in your living room/bedroom, or any space with 5 feet+ of distance. If you live in Vancouver, you likely read that and went, “Bitch, who has 5 feet of space in their apartment?” Don’t worry, I gotchu. If your place is the size of a walk-in closet, you should look for a short throw projector. These are good to go for small spaces. Frisky Friday bonus points if you build a pillow fort that you can fuck in.
BETTER THAN HALLMARK
One of my favourite thing to do on really any special occasion is to make cards for people. I know what you’re thinking and fuck you, I’m not a softy. A card written from the heart is always pleasant, especially compared to those overpriced Carlton cards that always say some sappy shit nobody even means. I found this link with some cute and funny ideas. It will literally take you 15 minutes to copy one and make it yourself. You’re welcome. Oh, and I saved you $5 so you owe me a grande non-fat London Fog, kthxbye.
Again, fun and FREE idea to do. Instead of the usual materialistic shit you’d give your love, this won’t even cost you a thing. A quick coupon book with a bunch of random stuff that can either be an inside joke or something dirty if you’re bout that life. There are printable coupons online for both him and her for the lazy. A lot of girlfriends tend to express their stress over the best V-day gift ever for their boyfriend. To be honest, all he probably wants is some peace and quiet. Maybe a blowjob. Don’t make it complicated.
– Do all the laundry
– 30-minute back massage
– Slide through the backdoor
– Actually choose a place to fucking eat
“NO, I JUST WANT TO BUY HIM SOMETHING!”
If you’re a lady that is determined to go the materialistic route for your man – no harm, no foul. Please see below the checklist for buying gifts for men. Are you ready?
– Is it useful?
– Does he already have it?
– Does it fill them with nostalgia?
– Can he eat it?
– Can he fuck it?
– Is it shiny?
The more categories you can nail, the better the gift.
HEY LADY, ZERO OBLIGATIONS
If you really want to avoid the stress of it all, pick your own Valentine’s Day or stay in. Send your boyfriend some dirty snaps at random times throughout the day. Eat a home cooked meal or order your man’s favourite take out. That thing that bothers you slightly that you constantly bring up? Don’t bring up that thing for one whole day. Binge watch a show on Netflix with a bunch of snacks. Add sex and go to sleep.
TL;DR: Don’t make it complicated.
