Be Our Valentine

Today’s the big day. Here is how you can make it perfect…

Valentine’s Day can be tricky to navigate. Relationship expert Dr. Randy Schroeder has some tips and tricks to make the holiday great. He says for the best outcome possible, choose a “surprise” for your partner that is meaningful to them, for example, if they love ice cream take them to an ice cream parlor you’ve never visited before. Schroeder also recommends getting out of the house if you’re able to, even if it’s just for a short time. He adds that, “Celebrating early or just when convenient for you both is fine as long as you discuss it in advance” and that “Roses and candy are gone quickly, but communicating eye-to-eye and valuing each other through self-sacrificing is what is essential. It is a privilege, not an obligation, to spend time together on a daily basis, not just Valentine’s Day.” So make sure your significant other knows that you’re thankful for them and what they mean in your life
