We're already a week into February, but my boyfriend still hasn't shared his Valentine's Day plans for us. Is our love fizzling out or does he have an epic surprise in store? With Valentine's Day inching closer, and Instagram feeds flooding with romantic gestures and V-Day content, it's absolutely fair to hope for a little V-Day affection, even if you've been together for ages. And I know I can't be the only one with these thoughts, right?
Now it's easy for the whole "Will you be my Valentine?" moment to slip our minds amid our busy schedules. But for some, asking their partner to be their Valentine can seem redundant. People who've been in long-term relationships assume that they don't have to ask their partner to be their Valentine since they've already got a permanent spot in each other's hearts. But it does matter, and here's why you should ask your partner to be your date on Valentine's Day, even if you're in a committed relationship.
It shows that you value and appreciate them
Taking the time to ask your partner to be your Valentine shows that you value their presence in your life. It's about emphasising their significance in your life and expressing gratitude for their love and companionship, regardless of how long you've been together.
Brings a sense of security and comfort
Asking your partner to be your date on Valentine's Day is not just about the act itself. It's about the intention and effort behind doing so, which is quite assuring. Explicitly asking your partner to be your Valentine is a beautiful declaration of your feelings for each other. It's a way of saying, "I choose you, today and every day".
It can strengthen your relationship
Asking your partner to be your date on Valentine's Day is a beautiful expression of your desire to celebrate your love and connection in a meaningful way. This openness fosters trust and strengthens the emotional bond between you two, helping you build a deeper and more profound connection.
