                                                           TIPS….TIPS….TIPS

Okay, so I separated the Baby Boo post into 2 because some people just want to see the tips. I have to say though that you should read about the "bath rituals" before continuing here though..... 

Here we go:

For the MARRIED men: Intimacy on Valentine’s Day could be a basic 3 step thing. These are just suggestions to get your own mind working in the right direction. Just don't be boring sha!

Step 1: Set the mood for the day by sending her something at work; maybe an extra extra large bouquet of flowers. Not those ones you can count all the stems with one eye o, or those ones they sell on the road side.

Step 2: Leave a little to the imagination:  I hope you do know your woman’s sizes. Go shopping and buy her a beautiful, lovely dress you would like to see her in, have it delivered to her and write a note attached to it: Babe, put this on & preferable nothing underneath; be ready to go out at ………time.  

(God pls & pls don’t let my enemies print this and take it to my pastor). I said MARRIED people o.

Step 3: Find the most fun place that offers just more than dinner: May be a Jazz club that has a pretty good food menu. Whatever you do, DO NOT take her to any of these restaurants & their likes: TGI Friday, Olive Garden, Applebee’s, Red Lobster, Ihop, Outback Steak house, Chipotle, Popeyes, McDonald’s e.t.c. Yes, I said so. Please have some class!

*Bonus: On the way to Step 3 & headed to Step 4 : Get your best music mix out. Nope, not Sinach, Not Mary Mary, Not Yolanda Adams or Kirk Franklin; not Yinka Aiyefele, not Sunny Ade....except of course you are my parents. Create a good music mix to play in the car- soul music, not all these ikeregbe songs they keep annoying me with on the radio. When music was music, mehnnnnnn uhnmm......uhnmmm....uhnmmm, I would have my walkman headphones jammed in my ears & completely tune out of this world. Music back then could teach a dead soul how to love. 
Sorry I digressed a bit.  Anyway, get your Joe, Jodeci, Ed Sheeran, D'Angelo, KC &Jojo, Music Soul Child, Sam Smith etc out and let that music take over your car.  Let the words serenade your woman and if possible entwine your hands with hers while driving to your destination. 

***Disclaimer: If you drive with one hand, and go and crash, I no dey ooo. 

Ladies, if your man genuinely can only afford any of the banned restaurants, please by all means enjoy it & still make him feel like he’s your King & has taken you to the best restaurant there is. It's really about who you're spending the time with, not where you spend it.

Step 4 (Bonus): Is in the woman’s hands but how well it goes really depends on how well the man did in steps 1-3.

Tip for those in long distance relationships: The distance is NOT an excuse to just be a sorry somebody. If you can’t plan or do something nice for your girl\guy, please just release that BAE for other serious minded people. Simple as ABC. Almost everyone knows someone in the U.S or Naija who can help you pari ishe. I've helped someone do something like that for a babe he was trying to woo. The babe still said NO sha.
Long Distance works if you BOTH want it. Any relationship works if BOTH party want it.

Find someone you can send some money to: Have flowers or even an Edible Arrangement delivered to her house or job – preferable job cos we naija girls like to show off die! For your man, have a bottle of Champagne or something sent to his office (Yes, even the men love being dotted on & they also like to show off – although won’t admit it). Please no regular cakes abeg.  Then order a gift – something intimate that would remind the person of you or better still make them blush at the thought. I won’t help you in that department unless you are willing to pay me.

Then devote your evening\night to being on Skype or Face-time and spend hours together talking or even watching a movie together. You’ll be surprised how drawn to each other you can be through technology. I know it’s not the same as being in the same space but believe me, it will do. It’s way, way better than nothing.

But if you don’t even get a phone call on Saturday or you get just a wacky text “Happy Valentine’s day”, please understand that you are dating yourself.

This are just the basics. You should get creative and be spontaneous. For once, let your woman be happily surprised. There's no fun in routine at all. I forbid you from being the typical Work->Home->Church->Groceries->Baby, Bridal Shower kind of couple. God Forbid bad thing biko!

Be Exciting!

Enjoy, have fun & please do tell how your day goes. 


XoXoxo....
Love is a beautiful thing.

Oh my.....you took me back to the 90's with the music though. If only my boo would do even 2 out of 3 steps i would be happy. Every Valentine day for the past 7 years has been the same thing.

Sav!!! I sent your writeup to my hubby and he got me edible arrangements! Ha. He brought it to the house though cos he said by the time he called them they said delivery was too late. He also made dinner plans but this winter storm spoiled things for us so we ended up staying indoors. I got a Pandora jewelry as a gift!! I'm so happy. I didn't buy anything for him though cos i was not expecting anything from him as usual. We've been married 3 years and he always claims he doesn't believe in Vals day so he never does anything for me but will gladly collect th gifts i buy him. This year i decided all that monkey dey work, baboon dey chop must stop. He was disappointed i didnt get him anything though but he'll be alright. Hehehehhehe thanks girl. Looking forward to more posts.

@ Bisi, my husband is the same o. Claims everyday should be valentine but he doesn't act like that all year round. No Vals gift ever from him. Even birthday is not consistent. I once told asked him if everyday should be birthday too. Only God will help our Nigerian men. I did not get anything so i just cooked for my kids and we had a good time.
