February, Winter and Valentines Day for the Lovelorn, Valentines Day fills us with memories of loves long gone and reminds the lonely of their singleness. If you are dating someone and it is pretty new remember to be reasonable with your expectations. Don’t expect him to ride up on a white horse and rescue you from bandits if he is more the type to share some together time at Starbucks while sipping a latte. If he is full of fear around commitment this is probably not the time to expect a marriage proposal. If she is on a high protein diet and working on losing weight a gym membership is better than a box of truffles. Romance though is very effective at bringing people closer together so do do something romantic to bring your partner closer together. I think one of the very best gifts and perhaps one of the most fun is travel. Whether it is getting away for the weekend or fourteen days in Europe that time together is something that both of you will enjoy and remember. Another way of helping Cupid’s arrow meet its mark is signing up for a class together, perhaps a Chinese cooking class or a beginning French language course or if you’re single a class in speed dating. Remember that if this is a time of year that is hard for you to plan things to do with friends and family. Staying busy is good medicine for February blues so plan your days with things you enjoy doing after work and on the weekends.Do buy her that litle black dress or him those brand new Jordans. Music is the language of love so do get tickets to that concert that the two of you can enjoy. Food that is incredible is very sexy so that old standby of going out to eat is a keeper. Just make sure your not taking a vegetarian to a surf and turf restraunt. Astrology readings are a great gift and astrology readings for couples can help you to see if you are on track in your relationship. They are helpful in asessing your compatibility with your partner and your strengths and weaknesses as a couple. This can go a long way in helping strengthen your bond. Tarot card readings can be both fun and enlightening for singles and couples alike. So if this blog entry is too late for this year remember the ideas for next year or just give them a shot for improving that feeling of well being in February. By the time february rolls around I am ready for winter to give way to spring. Here in the Pacific Northwest the winter doldrums tend to linger so I am being proactive by trying some of these activities together with my honey.
