How Valentine's Day changes when you're in a long-term relationship

Valentine's couple

For couples that are still in the blush of new love, Valentine’s Day is typically loaded with pressure—you have to pick the perfect venue for your date, have rose petals festoon your bedroom and you must have the hottest sex ever. But for couples in long-term relationships, Valentine’s Day doesn’t come with the same expectations. And that can be a good thing. You can, of course, have mind-blowing Valentine’s Day sex, but the pressure to perform is not as great. Here are our reasons why we think Valentine’s Day gets better, the longer you’re together.

You don’t have to be the sexiest god/goddess on earth on Valentine’s Day.

You are in a committed relationship, so a Hallmark holiday does not dictate to you when you have to be sexy.

You might not even have sex at all.

Yes, it’s true! You live together so can have sex anytime you want to. You don’t have to let the calendar dictate your sex schedule.

There’s no pressure to shell out for a ridiculously expensive meal.

Who wants to spend $300 or $400 on a fancy dinner when there are bills to pay?

And, no big meal means:

If you do decide to get sexy in the bedroom, there’s no worry about feeling bloated or having digestive issues, mid-foreplay! There’s nothing less sexy than struggling with gas when you’re having sex.

You can say the words "I love you" mid-coitus without any awkwardness.

Flashback to that time when you were in a new relationship and you weren’t sure of your feelings but you said it anyway—and they didn’t respond. Ugh! Shudder!

It’s not the end of the world if you get your period.

There are plenty of other days in the year!

If you do have orgasmic, romantic sex, you know it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s Valentine's Day.

It's comforting to know you and your partner can think for yourselves without the use of a calendar. So, don’t wait for Valentine’s Day—treat yourself to one of our hampers today. They’re filled with everything you need to turn any encounter into a passion-filled night of pleasure.
