Valentines day is around the corner!!! The second largest card sending holiday. Who-hoo!
What..? You’re not as excited as I am about it?
Valentine’s day has come a long way. There are various versions of how it began. Some say 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 thought this was unfair and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
Things haven’t gotten easier from when the priests would sacrifice a goat for fertility, and a dog for purification. They would strip the goat’s hide into strips, dip them into the sacrificial blood and take to the streets, gently slapping both women and crop fields with the goat hide. Roman women welcomed the touch of the hides because it was believed to make them more fertile in the coming year. Later in the day, according to legend, all the young women in the city would place their names in a big urn. The city’s bachelors would each choose a name and become paired for the year with his chosen woman. These matches often ended in marriage.
Sounds like a weird spin on a key party, right? I wouldn’t suggest trying to bring that tradition back.
It doesn’t matter how we got here what matters is that you don’t screw it up. As much as I recommend booking a reservation at the best restaurant you can afford (2 weeks in advance) and showering her with diamonds I realize that isn’t an option for most. Have no fear your favorite relationship and sex expert Erika Jordan is here! In full blown wing woman style let me introduce you to some epic ideas for V day that won’t require you paying in installments.
She’s a romantic.
Download some songs that remind you of her or songs she’d like to think remind you of her and put them on a tiny flash drive. Depending on if you have to buy the songs on iTunes.
Cater to her. Make her dinner, fix her a drink, massage her feet, do the dishes… you get the idea.
Price depends on the food
Go ice skating. Hand holding, hot chocolate and you to grasp onto each time she slips. A clingers utopia.
Make her a video. Tell her about the day you met, tell her why you love her and how much she means to you. Try and get footage of her you can integrate into the video. You shoot and edit this on your cell phone.
The booty call.

Dried rose buds can be used for tea or baths. Rose teas contain high levels of vitamin C to help her body fight off that cold or flu and maintain radiant skin. It also has the ability to clear toxic waste from the bladder and kidneys and in doing this it reduces the risk of urinary tract infections. Drinking rose tea can prevent blockages that can be caused by kidney stones. Drinkers are less likely to suffer from mental conditions such as depression and anxiety disorders. It can also benefit victims of compulsive disorders, chronic fatigue, insomnia and nervousness. On top of all this they’re pretty.
