5 Easy Ways to Say “I Love You”.


(Family Features) If gift-giving isn’t your strong suit, occasions like Valentine’s Day are likely to bring on stress and worry, but procrastinating will only serve to elevate your unease.

Follow these steps to simplify your shopping, and while you may not come to love the task of finding the perfect gift, your loved one will undoubtedly appreciate your effort.

1. Browse for ideas online. Many retailers offer special promotions and gift idea sections on their websites, so finding inspiration can be as easy as visiting the sites of your loved one’s favorite stores. There are also dozens of articles online to help get the ideas flowing. Searches such as “gifts for horse lovers” or “Valentine’s gifts for a new boyfriend” will reveal a long list of ideas to peruse.

2. Keep it simple. Although the advertising industry works hard to convince consumers otherwise, Valentine’s Day isn’t really all about the bling. Sure, a pretty bauble is a welcome gift, but there are plenty of ways to show your affection that don’t require spending a month’s salary. A heartfelt card paired with a memento of a meaningful event or place in your relationship sends the same loving sentiment.

3. Make it a (different) date. For many couples, navigating the demands of work, kids and life make spending time together a luxury. Instead of fighting crowds at busy restaurants on the official date, celebrate your love on a day of your own choosing, when you can relax and enjoy the time together without the pressure to rush through dessert so your table can be flipped for the next waiting couple.

4. Give blooms a boost. A dozen long-stem red roses is a beautiful gesture, but unless your intended rose receiver is a strictly traditional type, try adding a little spice to your floral arrangement. Go for a bouquet in her favorite color, or have the flowers arranged in a practical vessel she can reuse to remember the occasion, such as a cocktail shaker or a watering can.

5. Go ahead, gift yourself. It may seem counter-intuitive, but finding a gift you’ll enjoy may inspire an idea for your loved one. The trick is finding something you can share together, whether it’s tickets to a show or his and hers mugs for enjoying your favorite brew. Just be sure the item is something your intended will share your enthusiasm for, or you may as well go buy a blender.

 Dating and Relationship Advice from Expert Matchmaker Tammi Pickle

I have been a matchmaker for the past 20 years. I am VP/Partner of a large family owned and operated matchmaking agency named Elite Connections International, established in '94.  What is a matchmaker, you may ask? I hear that a lot, I help like-minded, busy professionals meet each other. We meet, screen, interview, and background search all of our members. Then I match my clients based on each individual’s preferences, likes, dislikes and who I feel would be a good fit for them. I set up the match by showing pictures and profiles and after they meet, I receive and give critical feedback that will help them in their dating journey. 

One thing I have learned along the way that has helped my clients is to be open minded. Everyone have a specific idea in their head of the person they want to be with. If you are too narrow in your search, then you might not give someone a chance that is a few years older, a few inches shorter or lives a few miles out of your area. From what I have seen in my many years in the business is when you are open, it will broaden the possibilities of many more people that you would not have normally met. One of those might just be “the one.” 

Another important dating lesson that has helped my clients countless times is to be as outgoing and open as you can on a first date. First dates are usually make or break. So, try to be an open book, let them in and find things in common. That is what connections are all about, relating and finding things in common with one another.  

Give someone a second date. So many times, I hear my clients say that they did not feel chemistry and do not want to go out with someone on a second date. If someone was very nice, kind and they are interested in seeing you again, why not try and see what might progress? No one is perfect and sometimes first dates are awkward, people are nervous and their true selves are not yet revealed. Are you not wanting to continue to see someone based on not feeling chemistry? Then my advice to you is that sometimes those things take time, so give it a fair shot. Chemistry and love towards someone can grow as we get to know them better. 

Be happy with yourself. Do not look for your happiness to come with a relationship. Desperation is a huge turn-off and you truly can smell it a mile away. It is much more attractive and appealing if you are stable and happy with your life as it is. You should not need someone to make you happy. So, make sure you find your happy internally before you go out looking for "the one." 

Enjoy yourself. We have this one life, so surround yourself with people that bring you up and make you feel better about yourself. Live everyday day to the fullest and try to have as little regrets as possible. If you are interested in finding the one for you, reach out to us and we would love to help you.
