New Relationships and Valentine’s Day—Should I Celebrate?

So you’re in a fresh new relationship— the glorious honeymoon phase. Every date is just as exciting as the first, and the anticipation to see her has every day you’re stuck behind the desk feeling like an entire week. But you’re still feeling things out with your new fling, and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, maybe you’re wondering if it’s too soon to pull out all the stops on the romantic stuff. Let’s face it, the last thing you want to do is ruin a good thing by moving too fast.  
Why Valentine’s Day always matters
If Valentine’s Day seems cheesy to you, we can pretty much guarantee that your date doesn’t think so, even if she isn’t the super romantic type or says that it doesn’t matter that much. Simply put, Valentine’s Day is another chance to show the apple of your eye that you care. And when your date’s friend or coworker has a bouquet of flowers delivered to the office or has a super romantic Valentine’s Day, a complete lack of effort on your part will definitely count against you that much more.
While you probably shouldn’t take your new date to a super fancy restaurant and buy her expensive jewelry, the point here is that you’ve got to do something at least slightly romantic to celebrate Valentine’s Day. If you don’t do anything, there’s a good chance your new date will wonder if thoughtlessness is a common trend with you.
How to celebrate V-Day without going over the top
If you’re in that grey area where your date has made it clear that she doesn’t want to move too fast, the idea is to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but not overdo it. It might be too soon to give a gift, so give her some roses and a sweet handwritten note instead. The note doesn’t have to be too lovey-dovey, but be sincere, and tell her how much you’ve enjoyed the past few weeks with her.
Be sure to ask her ahead of time (as far before Valentine’s Day as possible) if she’d like to go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day. If so, make the reservations as soon as you can at a fine-dining restaurant that isn’t too fancy.
While you might not want to pull out all the stops on the date, you still need to look good, so don’t hesitate to put some thought into your outfit. A combination of dark wash jeans, a button-down shirt, and a blazer is a simple date outfit that just looks downright great no matter how serious your relationship is.
If you want to crank up the charm in a subtle way, be sure to complete the look with a captivating tie that’s as singular as you.

When it comes down to it, Valentine’s Day is all about showing that special someone that they’re awesome, no matter how long you’ve been together. Even if you don’t go out on a big date, make plans to spend quality time with your new eq53. It could be a live concert or maybe dessert and a movie at your place. Remember—lowers and a handwritten note are a must if you have any hopes of taking your relationship to the next level. If things go as well as planned, the note could be a keepsake she hangs on to for years to come.
