Gentlemen, whether you hate the soppiness of it all, or dread the creativity required to make this day count for your woman, you need to acknowledge that Valentines is here … like it or not.
If you’re single, believe that your true love is around the corner so celebrate her imminent arrival.
Make a great meal for yourself (beef and potatoes are highly recommended). Scoff it down with a great glass of wine, then turn down the lights, and hang out with the J’s – James Brown or better still, John Legend, and most definitely Monsieur Jack Daniels in one hand and a cigar in the other. Enjoy the moment. You’re blessed to be alive. And love is on her way.
If you’re attached, wake her up with a soppy kiss, whip up a pancake or two and serve her breakfast in bed. Tell her how much you appreciate her … she’ll love you for it. Have a simple dinner together and as you do raise a glass in her honour. She’s worth it and you’re one lucky bugger because love is in your life. Don’t ever take it for granted.
