Valentine's day when you first start dating

Secret Valentine works

Expensive gifts and outings don't equal love. Don't think you found a dud if he doesn't pull out all the stops. But here I was in the first week of February with a cool guy, but no real clear definition of what was happening.

So grab yourself a glass of wine, make yourself a profile and see what happens. It could be anything, from a new hobby to joining a yoga class. If it's only been weeks, be careful about you approach this. Just something relaxed, without a lot of pressure.

Everyone is single like you, and everyone is looking for a bit of romance this year. Or, you could go for a brunch date the next day, since it's on a Friday this year. But since this is a special day, treating yourself to something you deserve simply has to be done. Face it, all your friends are busy.

He's probably just as nervous as you are about celebrating such a lovey-dovey day with someone he just started dating. Don't read too much into his actions on Valentine's Day.

Realize that in the beginning of the relationship, you might only get a heart box of candy. Dudes feel a lot of pressure to do something special for the ladies in their lives, and sometimes that can make them act weird. Sometimes girls get all caught up in the romantic-ness of V-Day and expect an elaborate dinner, and gorgeous jewelry. Secret Valentine works in a similar way to the that Secret Santa in that you and your friends all get together and send each other a secret gift.
