Women Want Love, Men Want Sex

Lets face it, Valentine’s Day is geared towards women.  Flowers, chocolate, jewellery…those sound a lot like gifts women, in general, would totally eat up.  Guys want sex.  They’ll get you the gifts with the intent of getting you naked.  And that’s how this holiday works.

I could stop writing at this point, as I’ve pretty much covered everything both men and women need to know to enjoy a successful V Day, but lets complicate things and make it more interesting.

Now guys, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with the gifts I noted above, but we all know you can, and should, do better.  Step outside the box and put a little thought into the gift you give her.  Better yet, try spending no money at all and coming up with a fantastic V Day idea.  Putting a little effort into the romance of the holiday could pay great dividends in the long run.

If you have little ones, run her a romantic bath and take the kids out for dinner, so she has some time to unwind and relax.  When you get home, put the kids to bed and once they’re asleep…offer to give her a massage or foot rub.  Chances are you’re getting laid and it only cost you the amount of a Happy Meal.

If you’re dating or don’t have little children, nothing beats the gift of time.  Surprise her with a date you planned.  A dinner and movie is usually a safe bet, but there’s nothing wrong with trying something outside of the comfort zone.  Has she mentioned a concert or dance class or a course she’d like to take?  Maybe a gift that would keep giving for months to come, so the connection continues, for example a class.

I had mentioned to my hubby a few years ago I’d like to take a stained glass course and he gifted me with that on V Day.  For months we packed up our supplies and once a week we toddled off to our course…it was a great way to spend time together.

As for you ladies, I’m about to offer you a choice.  You can step up and celebrate Valentine’s Day and do something special for your guys as well, or you can wait until March 14th, and give him what he ultimately wants.  Yes, there’s a holiday in March geared towards guys…it’s called Steak and BJ Day.  I need not explain…you get the point I’m sure.

So there you have it.  Men really are from Mars and women are most certainly from Venus.  But if you put a little thought and effort into what your partner truly wants and ultimately needs, it can turn into a win-win for everyone both in and out of the bedroom.

    While a lot of men are falling back on the Valentines day is not a true holiday, the why do we need one day to show our love. and those who are offended by commercialism, its the children that truly keep valentines day going. The joy they get from sharing and receiving small tokens shows the true meaning of “friendship and love day” Sooo my husband shows me love everyday of the year, but come valentines, he takes the kids out to get Mom a special gift…not from him ofcourse :)
    Happy V day my friends :)
