With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, is that love I smell or just confusion? Some of you may be facing the question of should I go out or should I avoid this holiday like the plague?

To ladies, these “undesirable” plague avoiders worry about misinterpreted signals that their dates receive. Don’t worry, we’re ladies. We over think everything. A student who would like to keep his identity anonymous says, “I just hate Valentine’s. There is too much misconception of how serious this dating day should be.”

Don’t be the Neanderthal that ruins a great relationship with your poor decisions! Going on a Valentine’s date doesn’t mean the wedding bells will be ringing. It’s just an opportunity to go on a date, or if you’re single to meet someone new. It’s not like they make children’s Valentine’s cards that say,  “I can’t wait to get hitched, baby.” They say corny things like “You’re the cheese to my macaroni.” Valentine’s is only as serious as you make it.

Maybe you’ve been dating someone for only a few months or weeks. Do you end up feeling like you have to do something? Myranda Hackley points out, “I feel discouraged of going on a Valentine’s date unless I’m in a committed relationship.”

Remove these nervous thoughts from your head and don’t worry about it. Nothing should get in the way of having a romantic or just plain casual date on Valentine’s Day.
