More to the point, your sugary gift could instead cause your sweetie anguish and take her out of the mood for love and possibly make her moody, wiped out and low on libido.
Actually, your lady might pretend to like your gift but later get angry at herself for polishing off the box of chocolates within a day or two, dread getting on the scale for days afterwards, bring the box to work just to get rid of it or even secretly flush the alleged "goodies" down the toilet to keep herself away from them.
So, rather than incur your honey's wrath or passive-aggressive anger, this Valentine's Day, consider giving a sweet, non-sugary gift.
"Valentine's Day is about recognizing your sweetie on a special day. Since you guys and gals are sweet enough, there's no need to add sugar to the mix," says relationship expert Dr. Gilda Carle, author of Don't Bet on the Prince! and founder of www.DrGilda.com.
Besides, adds nutritionist Elizabeth Somer, M.A., R.D., author of 10 Habits That Mess Up a Woman's Diet and frequent "Today Show" contributor, "In some ways, giving chocolate for Valentine's Day is almost a cop-out. It's easy for a guy to grab a box of candy that's wrapped in red and feel like he's done his job."
Here are some tips from the experts for more romantic, heartwarming, non-sugary gifts from the heart:
