Valentine's day is just around the corner and if you are in a relationship, you better get ready.  This day has totally different meanings for men and women.  You don't want to ruin this day so here are some the worst mistakes men make. 

Let's face it, Valentine's day is one of the biggest days in a girls life, if you are in a relationship or not.  This is a day that women wait for all year.  This puts extreme pressure on you men, so avoid these mistakes at all costs!

5. Talk garbage

We all know that Valentine's day is super commercialized but all holidays are.  Stores and restaurants want to make extra money on us suckers, but don't ruin the day for her by talking about it.  Also, don't talk about work or other depressing topics.

4. Show Up Under Dress

Valentine's day comes once a year I she has probably been planning her outfit for weeks.  It would be horrible if she is dressed and accessorized and you show up looking like you just rolled out of bed.  Put a little thought into your dress.  Pretend like you are still trying to win her over.

3. No Reservations

You are not the only man in a relationship so that means restaurants will be super full with walk ins.  Make sure you call ahead of time and make a reservation so that you and your sweetheart aren't having Valentine's Day at Wendy's.

2.  No Effort

This is a common mistake.  Putting no effort into the day at all.  Spend a little extra time and make sure you make this the best day ever.  Find out what her favorite flower is and send her a bouquet to work.  She'll love getting an arrangement in front of all her co-workers.

1. Not Buying Her Anything

This is the biggest mistake any man can make.  Women are difficult to understand.  They say one thing but mean another.  If a woman tells you "you don't have to buy me anything,"  they are lying.  They want to act like they don't care if they get a gift but in reality they want you to get them something.  The want to feel like they mean enough for you to get them something anyway.  It doesn't have to be extravagant, just something.

This are some of the biggest mistakes that guys make on Valentine's day.  We all know that the day is big  ploy to get you to spend  your money, but if it makes her feel loved, why not.  Show her how much you care and love her.
