Meaningful Ways to say “I love You”
“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” ~ Sarah Dessen
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and with it comes a bit of added pressure but hey you’ve got this. If you are fortunate to be with someone special, you’re already well on your way to Valentines bliss. Remember you care about this person, now you just have to find creative ways to show it.
Bring your creative self to the forefront to show your partner how much you care and that they’re always on your mind. Get a mason jar, put a ribbon on it. Be as decorative (or not) as you want to be. What really matters is what you put in the jar. OK here comes the effort! Write or type, promises of activities, sweet affirmations of your love. Remember this is between the two of you so be as daring as you want to be. Never tried bondage? OK well, now’s your chance, write I’d like you to tie me to the bed or curious about a vibrating penis ring, well what are you waiting for? Put that suggestion in your mason jar. Make a game of it, have your partner pull out an affirmation or suggestion once a week and make a point to do the activity or savour the love. Your partner will appreciate your efforts and it really is the gift that keeps on giving.
If your partner does most of the cooking, take charge plan a meal and hey if you need to cheat a little, there are very affordable catering options. The whole point is that you are making an effort. You are thinking and planning a romantic night in, to spend together. And most importantly, you do the clean up! Maybe draw them a bath or turn on music, encourage them to relax. Just have fun with it, don’t stress, it doesn’t have to be perfect. They will love not cooking, cleaning or planning this special night in.
Leave romantic greeting cards or even a post-it, if you’re creative in the writing department. Leave one on your partner’s pillow, describe how you love them or describe what you want to do next in bed together. Does your partner travel a lot for work? OK so hide a few sexy notes in their luggage. Suggest a sexy phone call or a sexy play date with a We-Vibe sex toy. Many have phone apps, so you can use them together, even if you are far apart.
Here’s a classic, reinvented, make a Spotify play list for your love. It is easy to search for specific songs, genres, themes etc. Share your special playlist the list over that romantic dinner. It can be as romantic or sexy as you want it to be or a bit of both. Again, the most important factor is that you took the time to make it. We get it, sometimes it is tough to say what you want to say, so let those musical troubadours help say it for you.
Be Spontaneous with some Planning
Plan a date night. We know of some couples who plan a date night weekly and bravo, if you do! We also know of couples who as hard as they try, life gets in the way of romance and spontaneity. We’re here to suggest that you plan that date! And it is totally fine, if you want to make it a surprise for your partner! It just requires a little effort. Look up the movie times, arrange the baby sitter etc. Give your partner a 30 minutes heads up to be ready. Tell them what they should wear or give them something fun to wear like sexy lingerie.
Whatever you decide to do, we promise you that you’ll both love it simply because of the effort you’ve put into your special night.
