Many men dread the 14th day of February because they just don’t understand the appeal of a holiday that requires them to go out and buy gifts, flowers, and candy. If you are a man and you are not someone who naturally likes Valentines Day you might wonder why your girlfriend or wife loves it so much. Not understanding this may get you into hot water, without even realizing it!
First and foremost you need to understand that women like the idea of romance, which is why Valentines Day appeals to them. This is a day that is designated for romance so it is something that they can look forward to all year long. If you know that your wife or girlfriend likes Valentines Day you can bet it is because she liked the idea of being romanced.
Many women like Valentines Day because it is the only day of the year where the men in their life are romantic toward them. Women often feel like they have to do all of the romancing or planning for romance and on this day they know that their man will come through, because he has no excuse not to! This day is like a built in day for men to let down their guard and woo the women in their life!
A lot of women just like to feel special. Let’s face it; most guys aren’t great at being romantic, at least not in the way that most women would like. On Valentines Day a woman has a pretty good indication that the man in her life will shower her with gifts and perhaps a romantic dinner. All of these things make her feel special and this is one day when she knows that she will feel good about herself and her relationship.
Women are competitive and they love nothing more than to tell their friends what their man has done for them. Valentines Day is a great way for women to compare notes on the men in their life. When you bring her flowers or candy or you buy her lingerie and take her to dinner this is, in a way, part of the competition with other women. Don’t get it wrong, she likes being with you and likes the attention, but it is also a competition to see who has the best man!
As you can see, there are a wide variety of reasons that women like Valentines Day. The woman who expects nothing on V-Day is rare, so if you have one, make sure that you hold onto her so you don’t have to get wrapped up in the pink and red madness that is this holiday. If your girl loves the holiday, do your part to indulge her!
