How to deal with Valentine's Day if you're still at the 'Netflix and Chilling' stage by Polly Foreman 10 02 Tricky… Valentine's Day is universally considered to be an absolute bloody nightmare. Because you'll inevitably be one of three things. Either in a relationship, to which Valentine's Day will probably bring disappointment and awkwardness as you're literally forced to go out and behave all loved up, romantic and happy on a day you'd ordinarily spend eating spaghetti together in bed.
Maybe we're just weird and bitter. Or you'll be single, and either not giving a fuck about being in a relationship and getting annoyed about all the people in the above category flooding your Instagram with rose pictures, or wishing you were in a relationship, and getting even more annoyed.
Either way you'll be annoyed. The third option, and arguably most nightmare-ish of them all, is that you've just started dating someone, only you haven't had 'the talk' yet.
You're probably stuck in a rut of responding to anyone who asks about your relationship status with: I'm not sure — you know? Option 1 — Pretend it isn't happening Let's be realistic.
Valentine's is on a Tuesday this year. And nobody in their right minds has ever in their lives done anything on a Tuesday. Least of all Netflix and chill with their new squeeze.
NB — this wouldn't work as well on a Saturday. Option 3 — Plan an 'ironic' Valentine's date "It's obviously way too early in the day to go on an actual romantic Valentine's date," you'll joke together, "but why don't we go to Franco Manca for a heart shaped pizza? It'll be a laff!! Which you probably do. Option 5 — Just stop being a baby and ask if he fancies doing something Maybe we're just reading too much into all this Valentine's nonsense, TBH… If you decide to do this, you may need to decide… What do you buy the guy you've just started dating for Valentine's Day?
You'll both go and make jokes about how you're having a "cheeky Nandos" together rofl and laugh about how funny and ironic you both are. Then you'll go home for a long, hard Netflix sesh.
