If I was Going to Date ♥n Valentine's Day....A Practical List!

  • Jan 21, 2010
  • by
Ok, Valentine's day is looming. Women usually look forward to this day while guys dread of forgetting this day especially if you're married, in a relationship or just have that special friend. The day has been promoted by the media as "a day for Love" and while the title is too commercial (the practice started to drive business), people have made this an unofficial tradition. I don't like going out on Feb. 14, I think it's too hokey but I would do something just to put a smile on that 'someone's face'. Keep in mind this is what I would do if I was at least in a serious one-year old relationship...
1
ROSES
Roses are a must for Valentine's day. It doesn't matter if you send one or three or a dozen, but girlfriends love getting flowers. I usually go for her favorite flowers rather than roses. Oh, if you're married, give the wife some perfume instead or better yet, a giftcard!
2
GODIVA CHOCOLATES
Well, the women I've dated doesn't exactly like chocolates, but it does have its purpose...she can share it with her friends! Nothing better than to get some points with her friends! LOL yep, it is necessary. Guys who are married, remember: She never gets Fat! LOL!
3
COOKING FOR A WOMAN
"The best way to someone's heart is through the stomach"...works both ways. Us men like to eat and women like to eat! Valentine's day is too expensive to get reservations for and combined with the other stuff, it can get outrageous! Me, I usually cook her favorites (if I knew) and I usually have her come over my place. Oh, it's ok, if you don't get it perfect, the effort matters. Married men usually know how to cook or at least pretend they know how to cook LOL! Can't cook? well...
4
GUILTY PLEASURE
...you can get her guilty pleasure! You can get take out from her fave restaurant (not so expensive) as long as you have her most fave delicacy. I once dated someone who prefers Asian gourmet pork rinds (chicharon bituka) to chocolate, it works! especially when she doesn't know you know her weakness... ;-P
5
BUBBLE BATH
After a hard day's work she'd like to relax, prep a bubble bath along with wine (the one you asked her to bring). I have no idea why chicks dig this but I don't want to find out. While she's in the bath...
6
Mixtape
...play her the compilation cd you made for her. Remember, this is supposed to be for her; NOT for you. Well, I envy the guy who is dating a woman who likes NIRVANA, METALLICA and the crazy J-Rock stuff! Trashcanman's "sounds like awesome" cd is advisable (if she's as twisted as me) LMAO. You can play the cd while you have dinner together too.
7
Movie Poster/Dvd Cover
After dinner and dessert, and after all the talking, she'll probably want to relax. Show her a movie that tickles the emotion...this is a great movie! I hate romantic comedies but I appreciated this one. Show her the American remake and you won't get lucky, go for the Korean original! ;-)


See the full review, "4 ½ Stars: An Original, Clever and Unpredictable Romantic Comedy!".
8
CYBORG SHE a.k.a. Cyborg Girl
She's still not satisfied with the one romantic movie you had her see? well, you can pick one with a hot female lead, lots of action and comedy before...


See the full review, "An Unpredictable Love Story That Transcends The Past, Present and The Future".
9
Kill Bill Vol. 1
...Then you reveal the movie you really want to see! Make sure you show her the NC-17 Japanese cut so you can enjoy all the bloody gore! Now, make sure she knows you well enough that she'll agree... 
10
From Dusk Till Dawn
maybe she's more of a horror fan and doesn't like Kill Bill...well, this movie is worth a shot.


See the full review, "VAMPIRE "GrindHouse" Horror Flick At Its Best!".
11
Poster
ok, she still doesn't want to see either of those two movies? well, compromise...Christian Bale in the Dark Knight is usually a good compromise.



Be nice to her everyday and especially this day, and maybe she'll be willing to try on the (see next one)...
See the full review, ""Either You Die a HERO or LIVE Long Enough to Become the Villain..."".
12
EDIBLE LINGERIE
Yup, guys! They exist! Valentine's day is all about the two of you! Married men, maybe just maybe she'll wear one if you also do the dishes. LOL!
13
Love Actually (Widescreen Edition) (2003)
...she refused the lingerie? well, just drink more wine and cuddle while watching another romantic flick! maybe...just maybe hope she'll change her mind. married guys are usually playing XBOX 360 now...LOL!


14
Ayurvedic Massage
Ok, you can skip another flick. Try to give her a massage to help her relax. Be gentle and loving with your touch. I bet she'll reconsider the edible lingerie now...
15
Sleep
I dunno about you but the day's really tiring...I'll just sleep! Z z z z z z z z z... ;-P

What did you think of this list?

LOL...don't know what this has to do with the other list but, I love it. Now, as you know, I'm not a fan of Valentine's Day but, this list is awesome! You know me, I love a good mixtape but, I also love this whole list- way to hit it out of the ballpark, Woo. So now we know how you woo your ladies ;p I'd also sub 300 for the Batman Begins, half naked Greeks are also a good compromise lol

I absolutely LOVE this list!! You are so witty and I can't see a woman not being grateful for anything you have to offer! I would skip the Kill Bill movie though LOL The idea of fixing dinner yourself is wonderful, although going out is also a good thing. Women appreciate the effort no matter what (well, at least me anyhow cause I am not picky and am very appreciative of anything!) The bubble bath and wine would be my favorite, but remember that romance can always start in the bathtub! What can I say about the edible lingerie but yyyummmmmmmmm........great idea if there is romance involved....notice I said "romance" LOL and the massage; nothing better than that to relax and put you in the mood, and yes, a loving gentle touch is very important. As far as the sleeping after all that goes, be careful - don't go to sleep until after she does; that would be rude! LMAO You're great Woo -- love your lists and humor!!
July 10, 2010
ha-hah. Glad you enjoyed the list, Brenda. I like to goof around and make fun of myself every so often. My favorite part sure is the massage and the edible lingerie. LOL! As for falling asleep before she does--what if I became too tired from the cleaning, cooking and stuff? LOL! I like pampering the woman I am with; not just on this day but everyday. :)
 
February 05, 2010
Great list! I'm thinking anything by Wong Kar Wai would be great for this occasion. Maybe some Cristal champagne? Ok, ok. I'm going a bit overboard but I'm in the mood for love now. Haha! Thnks Woo!
February 14, 2010
I recommend SAMSARA for Valentine's Day...LOL

That was so cool of you to put your thoughts on this day Woopak. I know a lot of people who dreads it and loves it. Since I became aware of Valentines Day it hasn't been a disappointment. I responded to each one, here is my take: 1). I love red roses and my favorite flowers are jasmine and tulips. Now if a guy gave me a gift card I won't fine that romantic, my husband hasn't done that………..yet….. 2). I love Godiva and you are right Woo-Woo This lady does not get fat from them. 3). I found men who cooks very attractive plus I love the fact that a man is willing to learn. My 8 year old son likes to hang around with me in the kitchen so I know he will benefit from it in the future. My husband knows how to cook and bake , as for me I'm not much of a Baker. 4). I love to go out and eat especially particularly to places I havn't been before so that's a A+ for me. 5).Sorry Woopak but speaking outside of the tub, Woman generally unwinds from taking them. The house I'm renting right now doesn't have one in the master bedroom but my kids does….such a bummer.. 6). Mix tap is a plus from the man you love….. 7). I love the fact you brought up this film and great choice. 8). That makes since it she like it why not give her more……… 9). Man Woopak How can a woman say no to you with a line up like this!....QT, What all the way baby ;-) 10). Bump that if She's down with QT she will love this too….you know I would…. 11). Nice………. 12). He doesn't have to do the dishes for me to put this on……Cute 13). That's not going to happen…. 14). I don't think any woman can say no to that…. 15). If that's even possible….

as usual, milady, you make me smile. what're you trying to say, Scot? As I've explained, V-day isn't a fave among women. Now stop whining about the women's negative reviews about this day. LOL! I think milady Jen would agree that their anniversary is much more important than V-day.
 
January 26, 2010
Great list. I'm interested in seeing "My Sassy Girl" and "Cyborg She." They both looked like great films.
January 26, 2010
They are great! I hate romantic comedies but those blew me away. If oyu'd like to know more, you can check out my reviews on them...the list is linked to them.
January 26, 2010
Thanks. I'll have to check out your reviews on them!
 
January 26, 2010
No TWILIGHT dildo?
January 26, 2010
c'mon now, you know I wouldn't date a woman who likes Twilight LMAO
January 26, 2010
Remember how you said you could get her her guily pleasure? What if it was the TWILIGHT movies?
January 26, 2010
nnnoooo...!!! aarrgghhhh!!!!!
January 26, 2010
_People have the strangest guilty pleasures sometimes.
January 26, 2010
I agree. I have the weirdest ones too!
January 26, 2010
Let's not go there. =)
January 31, 2010
You're in trouble, Trashie. Just don't be converted to a fan now...
January 31, 2010
Divorce--she can't have you arrested for that.
 
January 22, 2010
Hilarious list. Since I'm a vegan, chocolates are hard to come by, but I'd be happy if he just agreed to try some of my vegan food! (Most people are put off by it.)
January 23, 2010
have you had tofu ice cream? not bad it was alright. so what is your guilty pleasure?
January 24, 2010
Yep, I've had tofu ice cream, but not lately. I'm trying to cut down on the soy consumption. Hmm, my guilty pleasure would have to be soda, actually. It used to be Silk mocha soymilk, but they've discontinued that flavor... :(
January 25, 2010
They discontinued the mocha silk soymilk? :-( oh, going back to vegan food: I am omnivorous...so omnivorous=eat anything.
January 25, 2010
Yep, they discontinued it. I used to be omnivorous, three years ago :)
 
January 21, 2010
LOL! Interesting movies to inspire romance, Woo. Vampire strippers, vigilantes dressed as bats, and bloody revenge against former lovers. I do worry about your love life and when I say that it's really serious.
; ) 
Doesn't anybody still have sex on Valentine's Day or did that just slip your mind?
January 21, 2010
Hey, the girls I've dated wouldn't have me any other way! LOL Nope, sex didn't slip my mind, but for me it isn't a Valentine's day only thing but a "as much as we feel like it" kinda thing LMFAO.
January 21, 2010
; )
January 26, 2010
oh, I borrowed your ♥ LOL!
January 26, 2010
Thief! Thief! He stole my heart...
Um, that didn't sound quite right, did it?
January 26, 2010
no it didn't LOL!
January 26, 2010
Then where did it come from? Surely, it came from either the "Huckabees" data point or from my Valentine's Day list.
January 26, 2010
I deleted the one I copied and pasted from your Huckabees review and stole the one from Devora now...LOL!
January 26, 2010
What's the difference? Are there different styles of hearts? LOL! This is officially the silliest conversation yet.
January 26, 2010
sure there are different types of hearts! There are big hearts, small hearts, cold ones, warm ones, black hearts, edible hearts....need I go on? LOL
January 26, 2010
Yeah, broken hearts and warped minds.
 
January 21, 2010
OMG, half the list is movies! If the guy I'm dating (after 1 year) takes me to a movie on Valentine's Day, I'll shoot him right away! I want a hands-on body massage!!! LOL......... That's what I call practical. Of course if he intends to take care of my credit card bills, the edible underwear is negotiable ;-)
January 21, 2010
LOL! hands-on massage...I guess we can do that, but I doubt if us guys will finish the massage. he-heh. man, the edible underwear is getting a lot of attention!
January 21, 2010
That's the fun part of it all ;p I bet they are, haha...
 
January 21, 2010
Whoa, Mr. Romance in the house.  Nice list!  I was going down the list thinking, "Where's Kill Bill???  Oh, there it is" ;P  Sounds like a nice day.  If you're looking for something in place of or to compliment #1, a giftcard to Victoria's Secret never hurts.  By the way, I never thought I'd update the wiki for edible underwear on Lunch :x
January 21, 2010
he-he! You know I won't be able to do a Valentine's list w/out that movie ;-P I know--I guess there's a first time for everything! it's just amazing what we can hear about in this site! ;-)
January 26, 2010
Orlok's been complaining that I borrowed the ♥ from him...so I'll just steal your ♥ for the list. LOL!
January 26, 2010
Look at Woo, stealing ♥'s! ;P
