Ah, Valentines Day — the day for roses, chocolates, and cheesy decorations everywhere you go. (Even the doctor's office.) But believe it or not, although it can feel like an over-commercialized holiday, it can live up to the hype if you're with someone who feels right. If you think your partner might be the one, there may be some ways to tell for sure based on how they act or what they say on Valentine's Day. The holiday doesn't have to be cheesy or tacky, and it might be a great opportunity to express your feelings if you're with someone you see a future with.
"Valentine's Day is a specific holiday dedicated to those in love, and therefore the perfect time for your partner to express the depth of their feelings," Susan Winter, bestselling author and relationship expert, tells Elite Daily. "If they haven't made a grand gesture before, now's the time to do so. Even if the relationship is new, Valentine's Day is an opportunity to kick off a more meaningful level of participation. Your mate has the liberty to indulge in romance without feeling like they're being over-the-top."
Take note of what your partner says and does on the day of romance, because you might just learn they're the real deal.
