WHAT WOMEN WANT
AH, VALENTINE’S DAY. Some of us love it, some of us hate it, and some of us claim they don’t really care about it. Here goes the tricky part, though. Whatever we say we feel about the occasion, deep down each and every one of us, we all just want to feel special on that day. No matter if we’re in a budding, three-month relationship or way
into our 30th anniversary. Some may argue that Valentine’s Day is just an overrated, capitalistic ploy out to rip off all the romantics in the world — and maybe it’s true. But with the busy lifestyle we all lead, it’s also a good excuse to just take one day to be extra romantic to each other. Find out what your woman likes and make it happen. Not because you have to, but because you know it will make her feel special and appreciated. The fact is, we don’t really care whether our men show the love and appreciation in the form of the usual flowers and chocolates, a silly note stuck on the fridge, or just an extra tight hug in the morning — what matters is we know you paid attention and took a little extra effort in showing you care. Yes, cliché but true — it’s the thought and the expression that count. So, whether you — the men in our lives — are buying into the romance and commercialism of it all or not, please know that particularly on Valentine’s Day, we are more appreciative of every single, tiny, nice thing that you do for us. That being said, why not make the woman in your life feel extra special with something a little sparkly, wrapped in a pretty box, perhaps? Because aside from feeling appreciated, you know the other thing that women want? Reassurance. That, one, yes, you are still passionately in love with us. And, two, you love us enough to give us something fabulous. Flip through our Love & Diamonds issue for some exciting spreads to inspire you in keeping the romance alive. Cheers!
