Having a significant other (SO) is something that many of us want. A special someone to make us feel wanted, needed, and loved. I mean, who wouldn’t want that?
The “love hormone” oxytocin takes the credit during this time of year. When we bond with someone or are in the embrace of someone whom we love, this lovely hormone gets produced from our pituitary gland that’s right next to our hypothalamus (that little regulating structure thing within our brain that keeps you feeling normal and at homeostasis throughout the day) and makes us feel loved! Isn’t that beautiful?
With both Valentine’s Day and kindness week being just around the corner, I thought I would kill two birds with one stone by giving you all three great ideas to do for your SO this year. And you don’t even have to spend money!
Write Them a Letter
Telling your SO how you feel about them verbally may come easy to those who are great with expressing emotion, but for the rest of us, it’s a challenge. There’s nothing wrong with that. If you find it hard to get your words to fit into sentences properly, this can be the best way for you to get your feelings across without having to sound too “mushy”.
Make Them a Special Dinner
Don’t keep all of your cooking talents to yourself! For many of us, food is the key to our hearts. Going out to dinner is one thing, but having a dinner date in the comfort of your own home while eating the food that you made with your SO is just as romantic. Even if that dinner involves preheated spaghetti.
Take Them to a Spot You Both Cherish
Valentine’s Day is the season of sentiment. And there’s nothing more sentimental than revisiting old places in which you both shared a special moment. Maybe it’s the park you both met? Or the lake that you both kayaked in when you first fell for each other? Whatever it is, make sure it has a special meaning for the both of you.
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day of remembrance and giving thanks to those who you love. Your loved ones deserve the best; make sure you give them something that proves that fact.
