Valentine’s day is almost here, the day that makes most singles go crazy with anxiousness and anticipation. On one hand, it makes you dream about the endless possibilities how your crush might ask you out on a date, on the other, it makes you fret ending up alone on that day. Well, if you keep on dreaming there are chances that your Valentine’s day won’t be any different from the other days (only a tad bit upsetting maybe).
If you’ve been crushing on a girl, stop thinking and take initiative. Valentine’s day is the perfect time to ask her out. Turn down the anxiousness and turn up the excitement. Seize the opportunity, make the move, ask your crush to be your date.
Asking someone to be your Valentine is no easy game though. It can be stressful and might even result in a heartbreak. But it’s better than guessing “what would have been” if you had revealed your feelings. If you are planning to ask a girl to be your Valentine, we are here to help you. Here are 3 interesting tips by relationship experts:-
1. Enticing invitation
Veteran Marriage Therapist, Mary K. Cocharo says, “the best way to ask a girl out on Valentine’s day is by creating an enticing invitation that lets her know that you care enough to make a plan.” Try something like, “I’d love to see you on Valentine’s Day. Why don’t I pick you up at 7:00 and take you somewhere special?” Who could say no to that? Then, take her someplace special. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just thoughtful.
2. Sincere approach – flowers and a handwritten note
Psychotherapist SaraKay Smullens says, “the wisest way to ask someone you care about to be your valentine is sincerity.” And for this unusual holiday, social media should be replaced by old-fashioned connection — a delivery if possible to her office or home. (If you do not live nearby, use old-fashioned ’snail mail’ with a brief romantic message). Select one beautiful flower accompanying a handwritten note:
“You are very special. It would mean a great deal to me if you would be my Valentine. Details for February 14 to follow. To be continued (I hope),” followed by a personal closure, your signature, and a way to RSVP.”
3. Create a heartfelt VLL (Video love letter)
A modern yet creative way to ask a girl out is by creating a video for her. Professional counselor Dr. LaWanda says, “Create a be my Valentine video.” In a video, it’s easier to express your feelings without inhibitions. Also, it helps you strike a personal connection almost instantly.
Take charge of your love life. Follow these tips as a blueprint to carve a soft spot in her heart. And if all goes well, odds are strong that you will have a wonderful time on Valentine’s day with the girl you love.
