So you had the perfect Valentine’s Day date planned. But then something went horribly, horribly wrong! Is there any way of salvaging your romantic date? There are some things you can do to turn that bad Valentine’s Day date around.
If you’re running late, call your date and let her know. That’s rule #1 for making sure any date doesn’t start off horribly. Then you have to try to salvage your dinner reservation. If you’re more than 15 minutes late, your reservation will most likely be cancelled. You can try calling a few other restaurants and seeing if they can fit you in. Don’t stress over it, though. If you end up at McDonald’s or ordering a pizza, try to laugh about it.
Be sure to carry a stain-removing pen with you just in case you or your date spills something. If you do spill something, don’t over-react. Shrug it off, make a joke out of it, and move on. Don’t let it set the tone for the rest of the evening.
Be flexible. If you’ve gone to an event that you can tell she’s just not enjoying, it’s fine to suggest you go somewhere else. Maybe neither of you is having fun, maybe you are, but either way, Valentine’s is supposed to be special for the two of you. If one of you is miserable, change your plans mid-stream.
Sometimes events are completely out of your control. There’s a traffic jam, for example, or an event has been cancelled due to bad weather. Don’t blame yourself for these things. Also, don’t keep bringing them up all night. Yes, something bad happened and your date has gone off-track. Don’t bring it up every five minutes. Whining and complaining will only make it worse for her.
Was your date so bad there was no fixing it? Have a make-up date plan. For example, take her out to lunch on the 15th, or, if you can afford it, take her out of town the next weekend. Have flowers delivered to her office with a handwritten note saying how sorry you are that the date took a wrong turn.
