Why Going All Out on Valentine’s Day Shows Your Partner You Don’t Care

Use Valentine’s Day to show appreciation of love, not to make up for what you didn’t do the previous 364 days.

February 14th is the day you show your partner you love them! This is when you show your loved ones you really care about them! Am I right? You bring out all the bells and whistles. This day is the redemption for all the times you forgot the simple things that make a relationship a loving and caring relationship. You think this one day will make up for your forgetfulness all year long, right?

Maybe I’m wrong, and perhaps you are like me? I do little things throughout the year to show my partner I love her. It’s the small things. Some call me a “simp.”

Simp: Someone who does way too much for a person they like.

Actually, I wrote an article on Quora a year ago, and someone called me precisely that, a simp. I didn’t even know what a simp was, so I had to look it up. After reading the definition, I knew it had to do more with him than with me. Because if doing little things throughout the year to show my partner that I love her, so be it, label me a simp!

I love to surprise my partner. But my issues are I, for the most part, seem to choose the wrong partner that doesn’t appreciate my spontaneity. If I see something that reminds me of her, I’d pick it up. I loved to buy her clothes. It’s actually my favorite thing to do. I love to buy her dresses and other items that I think she will look attractive wearing. I know her taste; I know what she likes.

I also liked to leave her a random card on her coffee pot or in her car when she had a rough go at it. I wanted to let her know she wasn’t alone. I would send her random text throughout the day to let her know I am thinking about her. I would always be honest with her even if honesty didn’t feel like the best thing at times, but honesty goes a long way, try lying and fixing that.

I did a bunch of different things, and sometimes I would get really creative on Valentine’s Day, but my creativity wasn’t because I lacked…
