Valentine's Day is often a source of stress for couples. One person usually wants to go all out and celebrate, while the other would rather just stay in and relax. If your partner falls into the latter category, don't worry – you can still have a romantic Valentine's Day date night! Just follow these seven secrets.
Talk About Your Expectations
Before you try to plan a romantic Valentine's Day date night, it's important to talk to your partner about their expectations. Some people love going out and celebrating, while others would prefer a more low-key night in.
If your partner hates going out, don't force them to go out on the most romantic night of the year! There are plenty of other ways to have a romantic evening together. Just make sure you talk about what both of you want and need so you can have a stress-free and enjoyable evening.
