Michele Maturo’s 10 Things NOT to Do on Valentine’s Day
Here are her 10 rules for what not to do on Feb. 14th. Scroll down for a fire photo shoot, too.
Donâ€™t talk about your past flings while on a date. Your date doesnâ€™t want to be reminded of all the sex you’ve had before them. Itâ€™s a sure fire way to ruin the moment.
Donâ€™t leave dinner plans till the last minute. Restaurants will be booked up. Also, who would want to sit in a room with 20 other couples trying to be romantic on a hallmark holiday?
If youâ€™re “talking” to someone new, but donâ€™t really want the responsibility of the day, thatâ€™s cool! But donâ€™t ghost someone! The least you can do is send a text. Itâ€™s not hard to be courteous.. let someone know youâ€™re thinking of them.
Donâ€™t post a “sexy” photo asking, â€œWho wants to be my Valentine?â€ Only thirstier people than you will respond.
Whatâ€™s worse than getting basic red roses? Getting basic red roses on Valentineâ€™s Day. If youâ€™re gonna go the flower route, at least pick something more authentic.
Donâ€™t get chocolates! Aside from it being utterly cliche, it’s like giving someone a box of acne, no one will be grateful.
No one needs another bear holding a heart. Frankly, no body over the age of 7 wants a stuffed animal, period. Itâ€™s just gonna be trash in a week or given to their pet.
Crying is 2016. Donâ€™t spend your day sulking. Youâ€™re better than that shit.
Saying “I love you” for the first time on V-Day is completely unoriginal, and I couldnâ€™t imagine that to be the slightest bit romantic or genuine. Thatâ€™s way too much pressure. If youâ€™re dying to say it â€” at least wait another day.
Why on earth would you text your ex? This is the biggest donâ€™t of them all. They donâ€™t care if youâ€™re thinking of them. Leave them alone.
