Oh Valentine’s Day – with couples cosying up to each other and doting duos spoiling their other halves with a selection of cards and gifts, how can you not feel the romance on such a lovey-dovey date? Well if you’re single, it’s pretty easy to not feel said romance. With many singletons feeling singled out (excuse the pun) for not being part of a pair, why not use February 14th as the opportunity to let your crush know that you fancy them?
While your feelings for them may be loud and clear, putting it into words can be a slightly different matter – after all, what exactly is the best way to let your crush know how you feel about them and more importantly, what exactly do you say? Thankfully at Parcel2Go, our Cupid couriers have plenty of tricks up their sleeve to help you get the message across loud and clear:
1. Valentine’s Day card. If you’re not quite sure what it is you want to say to your crush, then let a card complete with an already printed message say it for you. Not only is it a convenient way of letting your crush know you like them ‘like them’, it’s also a classic – how could you go wrong by giving them a beautifully designed Valentine’s Day card featuring a well-written declaration of your feelings? Just make sure you don’t go overboard and mention the ‘L’ word (that would be the word ‘love’, not ‘loser’ in case that’s what you were thinking).
2. Write a letter telling your crush how much you like them. Sending your crush a note telling them your feelings on any other day of the year would be considered by most as pretty weird, but fortunately on Valentine’s Day, this grants you an automatic pass! If you’re really struggling to put pen to paper, why not ask a friend for help? You might find that around this time, some romantics are willing to give you a helping hand with a love-letter writing course – where they’ll suggest anything from a hand-written letter to using a typewriter to seal the deal. Remember – keep it short but sweet, as a little goes a long way.
3. Handmade gift. For those who aren’t a fan of cards or conversations, why not try the adage of ‘actions speak louder than words’? Often being thoughtful can be the biggest statement of romance itself, so recalling their favourite songs and compiling them into a mix tape or baking their favourite cookies can deliver the most romantic results. Not only could you potentially learn a new craft, you also gain bonus points from your beau for remembering their most-loved things!
