Valentine’s Date Ideas

If you’re anything like me, you prefer experiences over the traditional giving of gifts. Experiences create lifelong memories that can’t be replaced; while gifts can be lost, thrown away, or even taken back. Here are a few Valentine’s Day ideas for those who just want each other’s time and presence.

Netflix & Chill– Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be an expensive night out on the town. There’s nothing wrong with being a homebody. This Valentine’s Day order lots of pizza and binge watch Netflix with your special someone. I mean really, what better way to spend the day than with bae chowing down pizza? And if you want to be a little more romantic, get a bottle of wine and light some candles to set the mood.

Weekend BAEcation– Hey! Let’s get away! Let’s get a room on the other side of town! Choose a place of your choice and hit the road with that special someone. Escape the hectic life at home and explore a different place together. Take it from me ladies, a weekend alone with your man will be unforgettable.

Usually nicer hotels have a special couples package that includes an upscale room with a complimentary bottle of champagne. Order room service then hang that “do not disturb” sign on the door. After dinner invite your loved one to a midnight bubble bath soak. Turn down the lights and light soft-scented candles to set the perfect mood.

Set Your Own #RelationshipGoals

Everyone has seen pictures on social media of couples hiking, riding bikes, working out together, hugging and kissing each other, and the list can go on and on. Most of the time those pictures have the caption “#relationshipgoals.”

A lot of individuals and couples strive to meet these relationship goals they see across social media. I say, make you own #relationship goals!

Each relationship is different. What works for one couple may not work for your relationship. You have to find what interests you and your significant other and just do it!

Maybe traveling isn’t your favorite activity to do, but maybe you are very creative and artsy. Instead of trying to travel the globe because you saw that was someone on Facebook’s relationship goal, why not have a cute and cozy arts and craft night at home with your partner.

Relationship goals don’t have to be huge, elaborate, and/or expensive. A walk in the park, a nice night indoors making cookies, or even a Netflix movie marathon can be a relationship goal you set.

The only relationship goals that should be standard across the board is finding someone who can make you happy, treat you fairly, and love you unconditionally.

Now I’m not saying that you can’t have the same relationship goals as other couples. I know I do, but majority of the goals should be based on your own likes and interests.

You should be able to have fun in your relationship and be able to communicate with one another about any and everything.

You may not know how to create your own #relationshipgoals. These simple steps to help you out:

1) Make a list of traits/activities that are important to you or fun to do when in a relationship
2) Make sure your goals are reachable
3) Ask your significant other to help you set goals for your relationship
4) Don’t set too many goals, so you won’t get overwhelmed
5) Celebrate when you meet your goals!

What are some of your #relationshipgoals? Know that your goals can change over time and that’s not a bad thing!
