Are you looking get your significant other in the mood, but don’t know how? Sometimes, it doesn’t take endless spending or a lavish set-up to get that special someone going (although it does help). Valentine’s Day is that time of year for couples to express their love. But there is one element that must exist to turn a good Valentine’s Day into an unforgettable one: unpredictability. The less she can expect, the more she will love and appreciate your gestures.
Here are five easy ways to add a spark to any stage of a sugar relationship:
1.) Love Letter, NOT Hallmark Card
Add sentiment to your evening by giving her a hand-written card or love letter. Remember, any guy can buy a card at the store. And if you’re not the best writer, know this: ten times out of ten, a decently written card will be more appreciated than a great hallmark card. The point of Valentine’s Day is to make someone feel special, and nothing accomplishes this more than personally expressing your feelings on paper.
2.) Intimate Meal, NOT Popular Restaurant
A meal at a restaurant is just that, another meal. For Valentine’s Day, you want her to feel desired and appreciated. Sometimes, the most intimate setting is a private meal that you both cook together. Flirting during the preparation is key, and sets the mood for the entire evening.
3.) Candles, NOT Lights
Candles are the easiest and most effective way to establish the mood in any setting: the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen, you name it. Candles are adaptable, implicate romance, and are especially valued if a woman walks into the room by surprise.
4.) Bubble Bath, NOT Shower
You’ve showered together numerous times, but how many times have you taken a tandem bubble bath? It’s intimate enough to where you are touching, yet soothing enough for you both to relax and enjoy. For extra points, scatter rose petals across the top of the water and include a bottle of her favorite champagne.
5.) Experiment, NOT “Same-Old”
If there is any window to expand your intimacy, now is the time. Your sugar has been wined, dined, and taken care of—she should be in the mood for romance by now. First, see what activities you both would like to explore (role-playing, blindfolds, etc.). Start slow, allow room to adjust, and enjoy the experience(s) together.
