What do Men REALLY Want For Valentine’s Day?

What do Men REALLY Want For Valentine’s Day?

8 men (all 40+) were asked what they really want for Valentine’s Day and how they wish to celebrate. The answers may surprise you….

Being awoken “pleasantly” is how I want my day to start. To celebrate I want to do something with just my wife. It doesn’t have to be romantic, just a day together. ~ married 8 years.

I want a good steak and a nice relaxing night!!! – dating two years

A nice home cooked meal and to stay at home would be what I want, but we will probably go out to dinner. ~ married 26 years

I want to cook a special dinner for my wife and have a quiet night together to chat and just be. I’m thinking of making her a salmon with mango salsa, couscous and asparagus. A small strawberry cheesecake for dessert and a California Pinot Noir woudl be perfect. We normally don’t go out or exchange gifts, instead we just dedicate the time to being together. –  married (common law) 6 years

Men May want a Valentine's Day Dinner at home

A nice quiet night with dinner at home and a movie sounds great to me. ~ married 27 years
I often felt that Valentine’s Day was a fabricated holiday. I will buy boxes of See’s Candies and movie tickets for my ex-wife and daughter. My ex and I are good friends. ~ previously married 21 years, not currently dating.

I would like for my girlfriend to take me shopping for a new wardrobe, actually help me pick out the clothes which is something I am not particularly good at. I’d also love to have dinner at a nice restaurant. ~ dating 4 months

I want a romantic evening. To celebrate, I want good food that lasts and that does not make you so full that you do not feel like sex afterwards. I want a meal that paces itself…small bits of food with wine. A walk after we eat, working our way up to the bedroom, or anywhere in the house. I want to get up there early enough so that we can spend a lot of time. ~ married 26 years

What women think men REALLY want?


What I am hearing though is much more than that.

Perhaps we need to listen….

What do you think? Men comment what you want. Ladies, tell me what you think they want.
