Check out David's tips (below)!
"The biggest mistake people make is they use Valentine's Day as a barometer to measure the health and status of their relationship."
"The problem is that life gets in the way and we may be in a great position and mood around Valentine's Day or it could actually be quite the opposite, yet we are expected to be upbeat, romantic, creative, loving and festive on February 14th."
"Plus, for many people around the nation, it falls in the dead of winter weather which also impacts their attitude and spirit."
"They take in an overly romantic or horribly gory or scary movies which keeps them from effectively communicating during the length of that particular film."
"Or they may go out for expensive dinners at restaurants that are far from conducive to open communication and laughter."
"Large restaurant expenses may improperly imply physical 'expectations' upon one or both parties whether intended to or not."
"Perception is in the eye of the beholder."
