Take the pressure off this Valentine’s Day12th February 2018
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and so are those nervous feelings; what am I going to do? Even if you already have a date there is always that pressure of having the most romantic Valentine’s Day possible. Cue the flowers, wine, 3-course candlelit dinner and an evening of pure romance. Just last year, the UK spent £518m on gifts, £135m on cards and wrapping and £313m on food and drinks on Valentine’s Day alone!
Some of our favourite Valentine’s Day’s were the ones where we didn’t plan or book anything.
Personally, every single Valentine’s Day I’ve had with my partner of seven years has ended up being the opposite of what we had planned. The romantic 3-course meal ended up being a disaster leaving us with a large bill and empty stomachs. Some of our favourite Valentine’s Day’s were the ones where we didn’t plan or book anything. Instead, we spent the evening drinking cheap wine at home or going for a £5 meal all dressed up.
Take the pressure off this Valentine’s Day
There is so much pressure to impress on Valentine’s Day, especially if you are in a new relationship or going on a brand new date. But the truth is, it’s just another day. It’s a day that you are meant to spend with your loved ones – not necessarily just your partner. I have friends who spend weeks worrying about the dreaded Valentine’s Day and the fact that they don’t have a date yet. I say, take the pressure off this Valentine’s Day and just enjoy it surrounded by people you care about.
Valentine’s Day is what you make it
Of course, if you are into the flowers, chocolates, and candlelit dinners, then go for it and go all out! But if you enjoy a good board game with good friends then that’s perfect too. Valentine’s Day is what you make it, it doesn’t have to be what everyone else may think is ‘the perfect Valentine’s Day’ it just has to be the perfect Valentine’s Day for you.
We’re taking the pressure off Valentine’s Day and spending it doing things we love with the people we love.
This year at Thinking Bob, we are doing just that. We’re taking the pressure off Valentine’s Day and spending it doing things we love with the people we love. We are playing board games at The Roebuck, tasting some delicious wine and chocolates at Laithwaites and singing along to Mulin Rouge at the Prince Charles Cinema. All of our socials are designed so that you can come out of your shell, express yourself with like-minded people and have a fantastic time doing it. We take the pressure off meeting new people, getting involved in new things and most importantly, we make Valentine’s Day easy!
