~*~*~*~" So here is an expert guide (by "expert" I mean "me," and by "me" I mean "functionally illiterate ferret woman") to what you should expect on Valentine's Day from your new partner, based on how long you've been dating.
Less than 5 dates: Awkward dancing around the approaching holiday and more or less not acknowledge it at all.
If you’re unsure as to whether or not you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, but don’t want to risk upsetting the person you’re dating by giving them nothing, just pick up something small and simple.
We've already seen that levels of commitment can compare with the Terrorist Warning System.
If you’ve been keeping it casual, haven’t said the L word, and haven’t organised any romantic gestures, it’d be a bit weird to suddenly make a huge effort for Valentine’s Day.Too much of this will make things too friendly, so I think it must be used at appropriate levels.Dinner – Everyone likes to go out to dinner, and actual "dates" are rare.I was impressed with the gift, but my sister had a lukewarm reaction.Unfortunately he had done what my friends and I refer to as "TFTF" – "Too far, too fast".
