Five Things for Men NOT to Do On Valentine's
1. DON'T expect that giving a nice card and a gift
or two should definitely lead to a hot night in
bed. They should be the start to a nice evening,
not a guarantee.
2. DON'T give a generic card, with just your
signature. Instead, write specific reasons you care
about and appreciate your "Valentine".
3. DON'T expect that giving a Valentine card to
a woman you like is going to move the relationship
from "just friends" to "you're the one".
4. DON'T buy generic gifts for the special woman
you love, e.g., a Vermont Teddy Bear for a woman
who doesn't like stuffed animals; perfume if she
doesn't like the scent; chocolate if she's on a
diet. Take the time to get something special for
her. (And if you dont know what she wants,
theres no shame in asking for
5. DONT underestimate how important
romance may be for your womaneven if you
think its silly.
