Valentine’s Day has arrived and how you spend it may be quite different from others. Maybe you’re going out to a fancy dinner with your sweetheart – or perhaps its family night at home – or maybe you and a furry friend have a date with Netflix. Whatever you decide to do, here are 5 things you should absolutely avoid on Valentine’s Day.
one. these movies.
There are so many awful love stories that require a box of tissues or entire bottle of wine to watch. Romance movies can be the worst, like The Fault in Our Stars and Titanic, when there is death or a terrible ending involved. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wasted an evening watching a depressing love story that should’ve come with a disclaimer. Here are 10 Movies to Avoid and 8 Films to Turn Off on Valentine’s Day.
two. these songs.
I don’t care who you are, but there are some love songs that bring nothing but tears and depression to a person’s mind upon listening. I’ll never forget the first time I heard, “Tears in Heaven” and sobbed my eyes out when I was just 8 years old. Obviously the song written for Eric Clapton’s deceased son is not categorized under ‘Valentine’s Day Hits,’ but it is about the love he has for his son. Here are some more songs you should avoid on Valentine’s Day.
three. these foods.
Whoever said fresh garlic should be an ingredient in a romantic recipe should be slapped. There is nothing romantic about sour breath or stinky sweat. Beans, hot dogs, and anything with seeds can be tragic for your digestive system and teeth. Here are foods to avoid on Valentine’s Day and more foods you should never eat on Valentine’s Day.
four. these places.
If you’re single (and not happy about it), then most restaurants are an absolute NO when it comes to visiting on Valentine’s Day. Who wants to eat a meal surrounded by lovebirds? If you’re looking for somewhere to take your Valentine, avoid Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday and Walmart. Here are some more worst places to go on Valentine’s Day.
five. these gifts.
Gift giving does not have to be a requirement for celebrating Valentine’s Day, but many people believe it’s essential. In my marriage, we exchange cards and maybe little items at most. For the girls, we give them a bag full of goodies. If you’re looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, avoid anything weight related, an I.O.U., or any of these hilarious items.
