7 things he wants you to know about Feb. 14
1. “Don’t make it too over the top, not too much fuss,” spills Connor, 15.
2. Tyler, 16, dishes, “Wear something that we will like for a change, not something that you think girls will like.”
3. “It's is just another day of the year,” admits Dylan, 15, “and not our most favorite, so minimal amounts of pressure would be nice.”
4. Sam, 15, thinks, “Flowers and a teddy bear are the perfect gift for any girl, mom or girl friend. It's a universal ‘I Love You’ present.”
5. “Movies give the day way too much hype,” confides Johnny, 13. “What teen has the money to spend on such a lavish day?”
6. “It’s only one day, so why not just suffer through it?” confesses Tyler, 14.
Decoded: Yes, your guy wants to
spend the day with you and make it special, but that does not mean
that you need to go overboard to make it the best day ever. Your date
can be simple yet romantic, and still be just as special as the
movies. Remember, Valentine’s Day is about you two as a couple, so
keep him in mind while planning.
Your Move: Plan a date that both of you will enjoy and won't make him uncomfortable. You don’t have to spend big money to have a big night; staying in watching The Notebook or Valentine’s Day with some Chinese take out is just as fun as dinner and a movie out. Plus, cuddling under a cozy blanket is much more romantic than sitting in a crowded movie theater.
