There is a lot of common wisdom about relationships, but some of it can be wrong or outdated. At least when it comes to Valentine’s Day, common “wisdom” can be a little misguided. The truth behind some of these Valentine’s Day “myths” might surprise you!

Valentine’s Day is a Holiday for Women

The reality is that only 19 percent of women feel that Valentine’s Day is for women, and only 25 percent of men feel that way. So ladies, the pressure is also on you to come up with a romantic gift that says “I love you.”

Men Don’t Want to Be “Spoiled” On Valentine’s Day

Not true! Eighty-one percent of women surveyed agreed with this statement, but only 55 percent of men did so. This means that 45 percent of guys want some special attention on Valentine’s Day, too.

This Valentine’s Day turn the tables on your special guy. One thing a majority of men agree upon is what they would love to have for Valentine’s Day. Sure, if you guessed some sort of intimate surroundings and acts you would likely be correct— but the research did not cover that. So what is the gift they most want that research covers?

Flowers!

According to research done by Bruskin Goldring Research of Edison New Jersey, 61 percent of men said they would like to receive flowers on Valentine’s Day. However, of the men surveyed, only 40 percent indicated that this was a gift they had received. It seems that there is a large “Valentine’s Day flower gift deficit” for men.

Men seem to have an innate understanding that giving flowers, from a single rose to a huge arrangement, is a romantic gesture that pleases women. Why not men? The very same message of love is what men get from a gift of flowers. However, make it just flowers— an accompanying Teddy Bear is way too girly!

When he sees or smells the flowers you give him, his thoughts will immediately turn to you. It’s hard to go wrong with this Valentine’s Day gift! A tie may not be his taste, cologne he may have just bought for himself. Flowers are always convenient and affordable. If you order early, they can be delivered to where ever you want them to go.

Women, Take Charge

This Valentine’s Day, acknowledge your guy. There is a good chance he will be surprised (but happy) with a bit of attention on Valentine’s Day. Let him choose a restaurant and you pick up the check! Or, if he tends to select pricey places mostly to impress you, show him how happy you are to reserve a table at an intimate neighborhood restaurant.

Stay close, be affectionate. Occasionally touch his arm or shoulder. Let him know that you care for him and generate true electricity by your touch and body language.
