Birds chirping, bees buzzing, flowers blooming, love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!
But what should us guys do for our significant other?
Don’t worry! I have your Valentine’s Day guide covered, Coyote style.
The first step to creating those wonderful Valentine’s Day memories is through careful planning.
Student Eloy Carlin has his day already planned out.
“First I have a midterm, then after I’m taking off to go see my lady, thinking about the usual–chocolate, flowers, roses. Then take her out to a nice dinner,” said Carlin.
Student Michael Moody said, “Flowers. You can never go wrong with flowers.”
Even if your Valentine is far away, Valentine’s Day is still doable.
“My only plan this Valentine’s Day is to send a letter to a friend of mine who is going to school in Fullerton. I hope to attend there maybe next year and be with her,” said student Anthony Certa.
So what kind of advice do we have for guys out there this V-Day?
Student Robert Villaescusa said, “You have to do something corny, because if you do something corny, they always fall for it.”
“You have to step out of your comfort zone because that’s the only way anything is ever going to happen,” said Certa.
Go out of your way this Valentine’s Day, do something corny and make sure it comes from your heart. If you can’t do that, just try to spend time with each other.
Valentine’s Day is not just for couples, too. Single guys can take the initiative and get that extra push from St. Valentine.
“A tip I would give is just to not be afraid. A lot of guys say ‘Man, I don’t have a Valentine. I don’t even know what to do, should I even ask her?’ Go for it. The worst that can happen is she says no and just move on,” said student Jose Quintero.
So what do men want from their Valentine?
“Actually, I would like to receive movie passes or something! Let’s go to the movies. I’m not really into getting a rose or chocolates. But anything that comes from a girl’s heart is cool, anything that she wants to give any guy would take it,” said Quintero.
“Every guy loves food,” said Villaescusa.
Students like Certa just want to spend time with their Valentine.
Don’t get caught up in what to give, just make sure you do.
Guys, don’t forget how much Valentine’s Day means to your lady!
Carlin sums it up best. “Don’t forget Valentine’s Day, at all. Make her the priority, spoil her and just be with her if you can’t do anything at all just spend time and be with her.”
Being with the ones you love is what Valentine’s Day is all about. All of the roses and chocolate are just expressions of that love. But, it is the love itself that is most important. Don’t forget!
