It’s that time. You know, the time of year when you use your dear friend Faceboook to declare your love for your partner to the world, shout it from the Instagram rooftop and tweet that hell out of the romantic and not at all embarrassing flowers your love sent you to work. Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day folks.
But before you make any declare your undying love for the love of your life, be warned.
One of our fave websites has listed the 6 things you should not post on Valentines Day and we thought we had better share these with you because we would hate for you to break these cardinal rules and #fail at Valentines Day.
1. MAKEOUT SHOTS
‘Save the French kissing for behind closed doors (or on private camera rolls).’
This seems reasonable, no one wants a side of tongue while they scroll their newsfeed over breakfast.
2. THE LINGERIE YOU PICKED OUT
‘Let us remind you: Your future mother-in-law follows you on Instagram.’
Do people actually do this? I’m not sure if I should say props to you if you do, or un-follow you stat.
3. GIFT BRAGS
‘We all gawked at the David Yurman ring and eight dozen roses your hubby sent to the office. No need to hit us over the head with it again.’
I know that half my feed on Feb 14 will be clogged with flower pics so this is public plea to you. I can’t handle all the lillies.
4. PRICE TAGS
‘C’mon, people. Keep it classy.’
Eeeek. This ‘aint cool. No more needs to be said.
Let us remind you: Your future mother-in-law follows you on Instagram.
5. YOUR CANDLELIT DINNER
‘It’s less about the bragging and more about the actual picture quality: Food in dim lighting is a major no-no, people.’
But what if it’s some kind of once-in-a-lifetime dessert send from some kind of magical unicorn, then is it okay?
6. THE PUBLIC “I LOVE YOU” PARAGRAPH
‘It doesn’t matter if 201 people like a post dedicated to your boyfriend. He’s the only one that matters. And if we learned anything from The Notebook, it’s that real deal, snail mail love letters are everything.’
Nothing beats a hand-written note or card. That’s real romance right there.
