How to Avoid Classic Valentine's Day Failures

Valentine’s Day is coming and you are completely desperate, like every year, to be creative and avoid failures of love. And guess what? You’re not alone! According to a study from Arizona University, the likelihood of a break-up one week before or one week after February 4th is 5-6 times higher than the rest of the year. For that reason, helps you identify the worst failures and give you some tips to avoid them.


1. Forgetting the gift, or worse, buying last minute trash  

A joint survey, conducted by Men’s health and Women’s health, showed that despite the fact that the majority of lovers don’t mind if a gift is forgotten, for 15% it means the end of the relationship.


If you’re a man, be careful! 20% of women from another survey pool said that a petrol station flower is the worst gift they could get… followed by tacky jewelry and a large cuddly toy.


You can use Countdown+ Event Reminders Lite to remember important dates and know how many days you have left - not only for Valentine’s - but also for her/his birthday.


2. Getting your way to the wrong card

Cards are the ultimate expression of love and often remark from a romantic landmark in your relationship. The first Valentine’s Day card was sent by France’s Duke of Orléans in 1415 to his wife when he was a prisoner in London following a battle. Since then, about 190 million cards are sent every year to mark the date.


If you really want to test your partner’s sense of humor, you can try Love letter generator or song letter generator to make amazingly cheesy stuff that will show how “the fire inside you can burn with fiery passion.”


If you really want to do it like a pro, then you can use Justwink or Red Stamp to make creative non-cheesy cards or you can go to the romantic-cheesy border and try to make a Pinterest cute board.


3. Dinner fails…. Can someone heal the meal?

Love, passion, and all restaurants completely full! You can feel a potential failure coming your way. According to an Opentable survey, 51% of the respondents want to dine out on Valentine’s Day; but that means it’s you, your beloved one, and half of the couples in the city trying to have dinner together.


If you want to cook yourself, you could always order from a top notch restaurant! Go expensive…it’s the day of love after all!


4. The ‘yuck’ factor - a dirty and smelly house

A survey among divorced couples showed that 30% attributed the end of their marriage to household issues. Also, an eHarmony survey showed that household chores are one of the top 9 reasons why couples fight. If you are married or committed, Valentine’s Day is not the best day to literally mess around. If you are single, better impress your date with a clean house.


If you don’t have time enough to even think about cleaning, you should consider having a cleaner come in. Helpling, for example, allows you to hire someone via internet for the day before Valentine’s Day to get things tidy and in order… if you want to impress.


If you are single, this last failure could be potentially yours, so watch out!

5. Texting all your ex’s in a moment of need!

Oops, you did it again! You contacted your ex on Valentine’s Day after the pressures of the holiday got too much. Then you discovered that the relationship won’t work anyway and cried all night long while your friends celebrated the love. But this year, we have the right tips to avoid this bad revival idea.


First thing… don’t listen to Adele’s “Hello” song. According to a survey made by a dating company, the song inspired 64% of the women to contact their ex for an amendment during its first live performance. So Valentine’s + “Hello” = big no. To avoid remembering your sweetest memories, you can use Killswitch to rapidly erase pictures, profile updates, and so on, in your Facebook.
