WHAT DO YOU SAY WHEN SOMEONE SAYS HAPPY VALENTINE
I get a lot of questions from the ladies. They want to know how to make this day special for their husbands, boyfriends, siblings and friends. And yes, it’s important that we all take time out of our busy lives every once in awhile to show those special people in our lives just how much they mean to us. But what if you are single? What if you don’t have a significant other? What then? Shouldn’t we all celebrate love on this day? Let me tell you what my response is when someone says “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
When someone says “Happy Valentine’s Day,” the best response is to acknowledge them. You don’t need to say anything else, but a simple “You too” shows that you have heard what they said and are not ignoring them.
The worst thing you can do when someone says “Happy Valentine’s Day” is say “Me too.” This makes it seem like you’re not paying attention or don’t care about their feelings. It also implies that this person has done something wrong by saying something nice, which will likely make them feel uncomfortable around you in the future (and vice versa).
Another bad response is simply saying “I love you.” While this may be true–and sometimes people do just want their friends or family members to know how much they care about them–it’s not appropriate as an answer when someone asks how your day is going because there are many other ways of showing affection without using those words directly out loud!
“I love you.”
When someone says “I love you,” don’t just say it back. Do it in person and with a smile, your eyes and your heart. Show them how much they mean to you by your actions and words, too. The best way to say “I love you” is with a gift!
“Have a great day.”
- You could say, “Have a great day.”
- You may want to add something like, “I hope you have an awesome Valentine’s Day!” or “Enjoy your day!”
- If you’re feeling more sarcastic, try saying something like this: “You should get out of bed and go do something fun!”
- Be sincere. If you don’t mean it, don’t say it.
- Use the right tone of voice. If your friend asks how her new haircut looks and you say “Happy Valentine’s Day,” she’ll know that you don’t really care about how her hair looks.
- Don’t say it if you don’t want to say it–and if someone does this with your name in their mouth, take comfort in knowing that at least they aren’t trying hard enough for anyone else’s opinion about their actions mattering much anyway!
