10 Jan 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. To help you make it through, we've outlined some tips to keep you sane (and out of relationship trouble). 5 Feb Navigating the tricky waters of Valentine's Day with someone you are seeing casually isn't always easy. After all, the sentimental gifts. And let's face it: If love was what you and your hookup buddy were looking for, then there's a pretty big chance you wouldn't just be hooking up with each other. But, of. 6 Feb Getting a gift for someone you just started dating is hard. You're not close enough to plan a trip to Aruba together, nor are you close enough to give him an electric tweezer to take care of his stray hairs. But just because you aren't comfortable manscaping him (yet), doesn't mean you have to get him.
So, maybe you're kinda-sorta seeing a guy, but you haven't quite DTR-ed our shorthand for "defined the relationship" yet.
There are many good reasons for keeping the gifts and cards for your new date simple and fun! Also love the separate shoe compartment. That way, you don't have the pressure of creating a monumentally romantic evening. Trying to figure out how to get a tiny game piece out of your butt can definitely bring two people closer together, but you might want to wait til you've known each other a little bit longer for that. We could say no gifts, though cards are fine.

To help you make it through, we've outlined some tips to keep you sane and out of relationship trouble: There's a ton of pressure on guys who are actually in relationships to go all out and impress their ladies, but the pressure on your maybe-not-sure boyfriend is even worse.
Be frank about it. You and he both know that February 14th is approaching. If you're really into him and would like to spend Valentine's Day togetheryou have to tell him so. If he tells you he already has plans or doesn't want to see you on that day — take note.
Maybe you're not that into V-Day and could care less or maybe he's not into it either, but his apprehension could be a sign that he'll never be ready to make you his Valentine. Whether or not you decide to spend the holiday togetherbe realistic.
We've been guilty of believing that V-Day holds mystical powers that could transform even the most aloof of man into a rose-bearing Romeo — and we've learned the hard way that, no, it doesn't. 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. But if he does, be thankful. Also, don't expect him to ask you the girlfriend question just because it's V-Day.
While we think it's important that you and he have that conversation at some point if you do in fact want a relationship with himremember that there's a lot of pressure on V-Day and he may not want to go there. If the guy won't commit to a plan or you're worried he might back out at the last minute a potential red flag — if he's overly wary of spending V-Day with you, he probably has some misgivings about ever making you his girlfriendthen you should buck up and form a plan of your own.
We suggest hitting a bar with your single pals and having a blast with the other people who are flying solo and looking for fun. Yes, fine, this could be considered "making your own plan," but just trust us on this one, okay?

Drowning go here sorrows is NOT the way to go. You get drunk, then sad, then lonely, and then bad decisions start looking like really good ideas.
After the holiday comes and goes, take stock as to how you feel about how the whole thing went down. Did the guy stand you up after he said he would meet you out ignoring your five very carefully-worded texts?
Or did he hit your pal's party with you, then give you a kiss you'll never forget at the end of the night? A guy who can handle Valentine's Day maturely and gentlemanly, despite not actually being your boyfriend, is a keeper.

Still, if you can't find the perfect red and all the roses are sold out, there are other important things to remember this Valentine's Day.
