Whatever it takes to make each other happy

Relationship Tip #23: Valentine’s Day… commercial money grab? or romantic love fest. I’ve been hearing from many men and a couple of women that Valentine’s day is meaningless to them. They will not observe it even though the person that they’re in relationship with loves Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a rule of thumb around these kinds of things. If you have a philosophical or intellectual view of something that your partner has an emotional view on, I strongly suggest that you go with the emotional.
Now, this doesn’t mean running out to the mall to drop thousands of dollars. To honour the spirit of the occasion, is to honour the happiness of your partner. It goes back to an earlier tip, “Would you rather be right, or in relationship.”
For many, Valentines Day is the Superbowl in a year of relationship. Or for my geeky friends I say, it’s the Christmas Special in a Doctor Who Season. It’s Comicon.
I have a wonderful friend, who’s favourite holiday is Halloween. This time of year her house is more decorated than for any other holiday occasion. And her husband is her very willing sidekick and accomplice. That’s all it takes. Be the accomplice to your special person’s happiness.
