What Men Really Think About Valentine's Day

Is Valentine's Day a "Hallmark Holiday" or an opportunity to show your significant other how much she means to you? After asking countless men, both answers were given about equally. But, there was a few points that men agreed on in droves.

Here are those points:

1. If I do nothing on Valentine's Day I am in the doghouse

2. I don't like feeling forced to do something for my gf/wife, I would like to do it at random when I WANT TO DO IT!

Ladies - The men have spoken. This is how they feel.

What should you do to alleviate your man's stress?

Early Relationship - Tell him, "No matter what we do on valentine's day, as long as we are together I will be happy" - Take the pressure off of him. Set the bar of making you happy so low that he feels like he can't fail. Once the pressure is off, he will feel stress free and then have the freedom to plan something special if he wants to.

IMPORTANT - Talk to your significant other about your expectations for valentine's day. If you hate the holiday, tell him. Also review my article on love languages to ensure you and you
