Advice for the Guys


Guys, if you love her, show her. Alex is amazing at this. Not once had he even tried to discourage me from going to law school, he encourages and supports me.

The little things are the big things. Offering to get her something because you’re up, a good morning text or call if you’re not together that morning, a good night before bed, random messages (text, email, call, write) to let her know you’re thinking of her, making her coffee before yours, a surprise visit, leave her notes hidden in random places (book, coat pocket, purse, cupboard, fridge, etc.), listen to her and file it away for later recall….you get the point.

Valentine’s Day is Friday. You may be freaking out about what to do, but I can tell you a couple things. If you are doing amazingly sweet and romantic things all year, it is just another day. This holiday is for the guys and gals who forget that wooing your mate is a year-round job. If you happen to be one of the guys who needs to do something for her, here’s some ideas:
1. Go buy a card and put it in the mail in the morning. If you’re in the same town, it should arrive the next day.
2. Surprise her with flowers. At work is nice, depending on where she works. At home is still great because then she doesn’t have to worry about getting them home safe.
3. Can’t be together on Friday night? Present he’d with a gift certificate (you make it) for a pre-planned date next time you can go on one. Make if romantic.

4. This is the most important. Do it all year so you’re not scrambling.
