Whenever much emphasis is put onto a ‘special’ occasion there are more things that can go wrong. If your partner buys the wrong present, be gracious and think that they thought of you even if they haven’t a clue. If you go out to dinner and the food is not good or the service disappointing, avoid the blame game with your partner. Go home and make the evening special for yourselves and enjoying each others company.
Being angry and upset when someone makes an effort for us and gets it wrong only prolongs a negative time in your relationship. Be bigger than that and move on especially if you are the one who is better at choosing the right gift or lucky at knowing which restaurants are right for the occasion. Think of what other positive qualities your partner brings to the table and if kindness is one of them – count yourself blessed and enjoy.
