So here are my tips:
- Don’t keep this important date a “secret.” Let your man know 2 weeks, 1 week, 3 days and the day before that this special date is coming. Build up the excitement and anticipation with him, whether it be Valentine’s Day, your birthday or anniversary.
As you share the excitement over this upcoming milestone, bring up some ideas of how you would like to celebrate it with him.
Ask him about any ideas that he may have about how he would enjoy the day. If he just wants to stay in and have his favorite home-cooked meal and watch a favorite movie, then begin to think up some special touches.
And if the morning of, he is still prone to forget, write a sweet note on the bathroom mirror or place a special note with his keys so he can see it before he leaves you.
Don’t spend your special day mad and disappointed. Be a “help meet” and enjoy your day!
