Besides pretending that everything is OK and that you really don't care about this "stupid holiday" anyway? Grab your favorite girlfriends and head straight to your favorite wine bar. All of the couples are going to be out at restaurants, so this is perfect to spend time with your single girls and drink some fabulous vino (responsibly of course!). Try not to take things too seriously or dwell on the obvious because you are not going to feel any better the more you obsess about what you don't have for the overpressured holiday!
This is a boy job! Allow him to ask YOU. Hopefully he will either be clear that it is sooo awkward to plan something or he will be excited to spend some time with you. If he doesn't say anything at all, isn't that great information that you may want to consider dating someone else? Girls, you have to let your man lead this holiday. Do not, I repeat, do not make the plans for this day. Allowing the guy to take control will give you lots of good information about how he plans, how he takes care of you (or doesn't!), how he complains about having to plan, blah, blah blah! You just started dating, so lower your expectations because something over the top might totally freak you out too! Simple, genuine gestures to show you that you are on his mind would make for the sweetest day with a new crush.
Get a therapist and figure out why you hate your life! Life is way too short, hun.
Well, if you're like most girls that are knocked up, your hubby hasn't been getting any action for a while anyway, so he's going to be super excited with any initiation for some sexy time. Your willingness, effort and desire are going to be super attractive to him, so you don't have to overdo it. Most important is that you are genuinely engaged and enjoying the moment with your man, reconnecting after being completely exhausted and depleted from caring for that baby!
Absolutely. And then he should dump you because you just ruined your own proposal!
Show him how much you care by doing something sweet that is personal! He already knows you're broke, and if you cook him his favorite meal, buy him a book that he is wanting, frame a favorite picture as a surprise, leave him his favorite cookies at the office, etc., he will truly know that you are crazy about him!
