While it might seem like a bold tactic to try and level up your relationship by splashing for a blowout Valentine’s day, it’s not a sound strategy. Unless you’re absolutely certain the relationship is ready for it, a shock and awe date on Valentine’s day is likely to backfire because there’s already considerable pressure on both sides to present a Goldilocks gesture – not too eager/intense, not too casual.If one side blows this up, the consequences can be grave.
This is especially true on holidays, when it can feel like the first indicator of a guy’s thoughtfulness is how well he reads his date’s mind.
