How to Stop Hating Valentine’s Day (and Maybe Use it to Your Advantage)
Excuse 6: My girlfriend will be expecting a proposal.
In this case, you can always just tell her ahead of time that you aren’t going to propose on Valentine’s Day, but please don’t tell her that it’s because you don’t want to do something lame and cliché. There’s nothing wrong with cliché and she won’t think its lame, especially if she’s hoping for it! But, if you really don’t want to pop the question during the Feast of Valentinus, just tell her that you just might have something better planned that has to be on a different day. That should shut her up.
Your other option, assuming you are actually planning to propose, is to go ahead and just do it on Valentine’s Day. That way, you don’t have to celebrate Valentine’s Day AND the day you got engaged for the rest of your married life. And she WILL make you celebrate both. So it’s like killing two birds with one dinner reservation.
