In the voice biz, we communicate lots of things….usually educating, persuading or selling. Commercial Valentine’s Day is a blatant attempt to commercialize how we show love.Boycott Valentine’s Day and be thoughtful, loving and giving every day of the year.
Valentine’s Day has become a confusing and stressful day for many people.
Love it’s its own gift and should be shared freely every day.
Cook a romantic dinner.Pack a sunset picnic.Pick wildflowers on the way home.Burn a CD with hand selected love songs.Snuggle together on a rainy day.Leave little love notes everywhere.Send a love email every day.Take a moonlit walk on the beach….or anywhere. Snuggle together while watching romantic movies.Bring home good coffee or tea.Take a walk down memory lane — visit some of the special places from your early days of dating. Make a scrapbook with photos, mementos, and little notes from you lives together.Kiss in the rain.Ride a ferris wheel.Sneak away from a party and make out.Bring home great take-out, and light some candles.Fix something in the house together.Slow dance to romantic music.Take a nap together.Kiss slowly, touching his or her back and neck and nape — slowly. Make a list of everything you love about him or her.Write a love letter.Clip or email things that make you think of him or her, every day.Go to a movie, ignore the movie, and make out like teen-agers.Take some quiet time and talk about your day.Write little notes, one for each way he or she drives you crazy.Feed each other.Recreate the first time.Sing a favorite song to him or her.Have dinner on the deck, with some candles.Say I love you in a different way, every day.Declare your love, very publicly.Do what comes naturally. Slowly.
