The history of Valentine’s Day–and the story of its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
Don't expect too much and you'll be happier
On Valentine's Day, people often tend to have these unrealistically high expectations. They want their partners to wow them and blow them away with some moving, grand, romantic to-do, and that expectation itself is probably setting them up for disappointment."
"When it comes to concrete, specific things that your partner does for you, the fewer things you expect on a day-to-day basis, the happier you are. The more pessimistic people are, the greater boost to well-being they experience,"
Wouldn't you know?
Still, if you're in a decent relationship, and you've known each other for a while, wouldn't you assume that partners have at least some sense of what the other person might want or like — and by extension be able to meet expectations? So even if you have a highly responsive partner, the lower your expectations are, the greater the gap between your expectations and what the partner delivers, and so the happier you'll be."
For Valentine's Day, that leaves the possibility that surprising a partner could turn out well.
Dump the clichés
"Forget about clichés,
"Demonstrate that you pay attention to your partner's particular interests and desires by planning something that is geared for your partner's particular tastes." And maybe it's a good idea to talk about it and plan whatever celebration you might like together. Take the pressure off the day by removing judgments and expectations on each other,"
It's probably also a good idea not to get too bent out of shape if Valentine's Day doesn't live up to your expectations. Go easy on each other, and recognize that the experience that you have on this one particular night does not say very much about your relationship as a whole,"
"If your Valentine's Day turns out to be a flop, oh well. You will have plenty more opportunities for spectacularly romantic nights down the road."
