Valentines tips for him

Ladies and some gents! How about we focus on MEN this valentine’s holiday for a change? Traditionally, this international love day is more about showering and pampering your special lady/man in your life.

Lets face it, throughout the centuries men have always been known to initiate the first move when it comes to love, like marriage proposals, asking her/him out on a date or even being a girlfriend/boyfriend.

The social pressure to make this beautiful romantic day has always been on him. They go through lengths for the perfect special day for us girls.

While on this topic, I give props to the men that have been rejected many times and still have the courage to keep on finding their perfect match. It’s commendable.

Not saying ladies don’t show their partners’ love during this holiday, but how about total castaway of expectations this time around?

Showing him extra, extra love for a change? If you have, then keep on doing your beautiful thing Sis! If you haven’t, there just might be light shared and ideas to switching up the roles this Valentines.

So to get inspiration and ideas of what to do on this day for your bae, here are a series of questions asked to a random selection of men with different occupations and age range.

A little insight of what they want on this day of passion. Lets play along!

It’s all about knowing the personality of who you want to create this special day with. If your guy is more of an introvert, a cozy intimate set up is ideal, if he’s a man’s man and isn’t shy to express himself, then go all out and match up to his character. Either way, make sure it’s one Valentines he will never forget!
