What to wear on Valentine’s date night

Valentines Day is a load of arse in many ways.

Here are some things I really don’t like about Valentine’s Day:

  1. Hideous metallic heart balloons tied to fuzzy pink teddy bears. Stay clear of naked flames, those puppies are FLAM-A-BULL.
  2. Manky supermarket flowers that get snapped up at 5.30pm by slack partners on their way home from work, who frankly should be shot for thinking that a gesture as lazy as this would be appreciated. We all deserve so much better.
  3. Vapid, greeting card sentimentality. There’s a definite underlying wiff of judgement that infers you’re not good enough if you’re single or too cynical to buy into it.
  4. Cheap, refined-sugar-filled chocolate tinfoil wrapped ‘treats’ that taste disgusting and hurt your liver a lot. Bin. Now.

But here’s what I love about Valentine’s Day…

It is a little nudge that reminds us to take some time out and appreciate our significant other.

Sure, sure, sure we should do it every day but we all know that life gets in the way and sometimes you just really want to clock them with a pepper grinder.

So this Valentine’s Day, why not put down the pepper grinder and make an effort. Book in a date night at a restaurant or the driving range (is that weird?) or the movies. Or just spend some time together looking into each others eyes and pashing on the couch (ew, ok sorry that sounds gross).
