Heart-shaped candy, pink and red everywhere, and Valentine-O-Grams can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is here. Whether you are in a steady relationship, going on your first date tonight, or just have a crush, here are some tips for you on this Valentine’s Day.

For men in a relationship:

– Do something new, old, or simplistic, but make sure it’s memorable.

– Ask your girlfriend what her dream date would be and try to get as close to it as possible.

– Do something out of the box; don’t be predictable.

– Make the whole day special by surprising her, not just the hour or two you’re out to dinner.

For men who are casually dating or talking to someone:

– Ask her what she would likes to do and bring her on that date.

– Don’t go overboard, save that for when you’re steadily dating.

– Treat her nice to show her why she should make you her steady boyfriend.

– Give her something sentimental that every time she looks at it she will think of you.

– Make the date special, but don’t change who you are, be yourself.

For single men going a first date:

– Know the area you are going on the date so you don’t get lost and lose out on the date.

– Make sure you are a gentlemen. Open her doors, pull out her chair, and listen while she talks.

– Dress as if you want to have a second date.

– Make the conversations more about her, and less about you.

Hopefully these tips will help you have an enjoyable Valentine’s Day, whether you are going on your first or twenty-first date.
