If you’re in love with a girl, asking her to be your Valentine is an excellent way to let her know how you feel. There are a number of ways to pop the question, as it were. From going old-school with a handwritten note to planning an elaborate evening, you can show her you care in a way that’s perfect for your relationship. Styleter brought you four exciting ideas to try out on the special lady in your life.
1. A Handwritten Note
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a handwritten note. It’s worth taking the time out to write something heartfelt and sweet, and making the effort to give it to her in person will let her know how much she means to you. Once Valentine’s Day is over, consider writing a note every day just because you want to let her know you’re thinking about her. She’ll be thrilled that you took the time to craft something for her, and she’ll be reminded of how much she means to you every single day as she reads it at home or work.
2. A Personalized Card
A handmade Valentine’s Day card is a great way to show your girlfriend you care. You can buy or make a card, write something inside it and then give it to her on the appropriate day. If you’re feeling crafty, this is an excellent project to involve your kids in as well. Alternatively, if she’s more into technology than crafting, try having some fun with online cards that include personalized messages for her.
3. Dinner at Home
A romantic dinner at home is one of the simplest ways to ask a girl to be your Valentine for the year. Maybe you already cook together, or perhaps you can take turns cooking for each other so there’s no pressure on either side. Put some candles on the table, put her favorite music on and enjoy each other’s company. If you want to take it one step further, consider trying some new recipes so you can really impress her.
Be sure to find out if she wants an evening together or if she prefers something more casual like breakfast in bed the next morning. You don’t want to plan a fancy dinner and then get turned down because she didn’t want to wait until evening.
4. Asking directly
Some girls may prefer a more straightforward approach. Consider asking her to be your Valentine the old-fashioned way: on bended knee with a beautiful engagement ring in hand. She’ll know you’re serious right from the start. Whether or not she says yes, taking this route is guaranteed to make for an exciting evening and she’s sure to remember it for years to come.
These are just four ideas to get you started on asking a girl to be your Valentine. Remember that the most important thing is how much she means to you and the lengths you’re willing to go for her. She’ll love whatever you do, but of course don’t underestimate the impact of doing something unexpected and sweet every now and again as well!
