Valentines day ideas if you just started dating
Fortunately, there are alternatives to the Valentines frenzy.
Whether you're single, dating, or celebrating your 50th anniversary, you can make it an enchanting day.

If he's not your boyfriend, he doesn't HAVE to give you anything — not even a daisy he picked on the side of the road.
Gift-giving can be super stressful (even if you've been together for ages!
Sorry to bear bad news, but things may go from casual to complicated as Valentine's Day approaches — especially if you and your guy have different expectations for how you'd like to spend the holiday.
If you're really into him and would like to spend Valentine's Day together, you have to tell him so.
Perhaps suggest hitting a bar together or going to a house party — something more low key than a /person prix-fixe meal.
If he does too little for you on V-Day, he risks making you think he's not that into you — and if he does too much he risks scaring you away or making you think that the relationship is farther along than it really is. You and he both know that February 14th is approaching.
Bringing up the holiday casually could be a good way to measure how the dude feels about it (and perhaps just how romantic-minded he is), as well as give you some insight into his past relationships or experiences (which is helpful).
