Do You Hate Valentine's Day?
February is a cold, heartless month.
Surrounded yet another year by cheesy slogans and sappy commercials, my ex might have been right. Valentine's Day just might be a conspiracy between the card companies, the florists and the chocolatiers.
Isn't it kind of dumb to assign love to one month....one day? What... you are supposed to treat someone casually for 364 days and then on that one day.....make up for it?
Valentine's Day is only perfect for certain people at certain times. If you score a date with a great new guy a month before Valentine's day....ka-ching! You can expect gifts, dinner and great wine. I think guys are actually relieved to have a new girlfriend on the big day. We are so easily impressed.
Other wise, singles hate Valentine's Day because they are still single. Married women hate it because it is never like it once was. Men hate it because no matter what they do their woman is never satisfied. And of course kids hate it because one, they didn't get as many valentine's as the popular kid and two, there's a lot of pouting going on around the house. I told you...February is a cold and heartless month!
If Valentine's day sucks for you again this year and a part of you still longs to be with someone or to be really loved by your man. I can help you. Don't give up. Here are three ways to get past this inflated day and feel better:
1. Give funny Valentine's cards to 6 people who wouldn't expect one from you. People like your postman, UPS guy, Starbuck's Barista, school bus driver or bank teller, people who you see everyday who serve you in some way. Sweeten the pot by adding a lottery ticket. Sure to bring a smile.
2. Treat yourself to a spa treatment. Get a massage or mani/pedi in a massage chair. My clients complain that they are not getting enough physical attention, you know what I mean? You don't need a boyfriend to massage your shoulders. You can often get great rates on massage at a massage school in your town. Check it out.
3. Get involved with a charitable outreach of some kind. My hubby and I volunteer at the cat shelter to socialize the kittens and get them ready for adoption. I love it. I get to play with kittens, hold them and love them. I also get to see the looks on the faces of the families who adopt them. There is a lot of love to give and get in any kind of volunteerism. The very best way to bring love closer.
How do I celebrate Valentine's day? My sweetie and I share a lot of romance during the year. We have done the expensive dinners and the champagne by the fireplace. This year we are going to an art show and a concert matinee. We exchange small gifts and celebrate our finding one another. I feel so lucky to have drawn this wonderful man into my life.

I've noticed that there is a certain stage of a relationship where Valentines Day can be downright lethal. Thats the 'not-quite-officially-together' stage. I've seen it happen many times.
One person in the couple makes big plans for valentines, and expects cards and gifts from the other ... while the other is thinking that they are not 'officially' a couple, so they blow off the holiday altogether.
Expectations can KILL a potential relationship - so be careful out there folks - check with your friend first before making (or not making) plans - don't let this silly holiday ruin what might be a great relationship!

A Stress Free Valentine's Day
Why is it that the day we're supposed to celebrate the person who makes us feel the most special ends up being the day that makes us feel the most stressed? What should I get them? What will they get me? Is this romantic enough? Should we go somewhere fancy or spend an intimate night in? Whatever the stresses are, it usually ends up being about expectations, and whether you or your special someone meets them. What ends up on the sidelines is the reason for the holiday in the first place. Love.
Alicia on "Managing Expectations" - "Even though it may sound like you're angling for a better gift, bringing up Valentine's Day before the actual day can help get everyone on the same page as far as expectations. One of the ways to have a stress free day is to share ideas about what you may want to do, be it if you want to go out to dinner or have a romantic night in, or setting a price limit of gifts. Phrasing is key: 'What should we do for Valentine's Day?' Good. 'What are you getting me for Valentine's Day?' Not so good.
Sarah on 'The Gift' - 'A friend of mine once said 'For Valentine's Day, I get my wife the thing she really wanted but didn't get for Christmas.' That's one not so romantic way to go about it. We prefer the idea of getting something you both can enjoy. Whether it's tickets to a concert, a couple's massage, or something as simple as buying a nice bottle of wine to share, the fact that you're spending time together doing something special is what true love is all about.'
To avoid another Valentine's Day horror story, here are a few simple tips:
#1. Keep It Simple
#2 His Valentine's Day
#3 Schedule A Monthly Valentine's Day

Tips For Planning a Divorce Party
The divorce party has become quite calm these days, and it can be a lot of fun and a great way to help you move on. It's a great way to get your supportive friends together and celebrate the fact that you're newly single. However, planning a fun divorce party can sometimes be frustrating. In this article, you will receive some really great tips for planning a divorce party that is sure to be a blast.
Decide on Your Theme Most divorce parties have really great and comical themes. Choosing one before you start shopping can help you decide the things you will need to purchase which go along with your theme. Get creative and try to think about your newfound freedom and what it means to you. One great theme idea is 'escape.' You can purchase great props like handcuffs and ropes - and then break the handcuffs and fray the ropes. Play great party games like tying each other up and timing how long it takes to escape. Whoever escapes first wins the game. There are so many different ideas. Simply use your imagination and you will find a great theme.
Who to Invite? Another thing you will want to think about is who you will invite to your divorce party. Of course, your first thought is to invite your girlfriends if you're a woman or your guy friends if you're a man. Just remember that inviting friends that are mutual friends of you and your ex could be a bit touchy. As long as they know that your party is not meant to be offensive to your ex - but rather a celebration for you, it should be fine. Of course, children should never be there and inviting people from work could be a bad idea - especially if you plan on having alcohol at your party. The best thing to do is to keep your invitation list to your closest friends and family!
The Divorce Cake There are a lot of different options when it comes to the divorce cake. Basically, you only need to use your imagination to come up with a great idea. One of the most popular cake ideas is a mock wedding cake with the groom or bride pushing the other off the cake. Of course, icing with red food coloring is the blood the ex spouse lost while falling down the tiers!
There are many different ideas and by using your imagination, you can find the best one for your divorce party. Using the ideas and suggestions above, your divorce party can be more than just a party, it can be a celebration of your new life and your new found freedom!
