How to prepare for your Valentine’s Day date- For women

Be the first to vote…

Last year we provided you with some art-themed Valentines to give to your Valentine. It worked! And this year, you have yourself a date. Congratulations! But it’s been a while since you actually did Valentine’s Day and you probably need a quick refresher.

So here are a few things you should anticipate for the big night and how to prepare for them.


You need a strong start to the night. So look yourself in the mirror for a quick pep talk. You are a strong, independent, woman and that Kim Kardashian contouring is making those cheekbones look fierce.

This works best if you have a friend present for affirmation.


Dust off those stripper heels you never thought you’d have any occasion to wear. You may want to do a few practice runs before actually heading out the door, especially if you think you’re a bit rusty.

Now go out there and slayyyy.


Take some advice from Cher:


So don’t be afraid to order that cheeseburger, because that requires maximum mouth utilization.

This is you:


And this is you:


After dinner, don’t be afraid to show off your dance moves.

A little bit of ankle will surely entice him.


So you’re going to do the deed, and this is the first time in a long time you’ve actually had advanced notice to prepare for it.

We are not here to tell you what to do with your nether regions, rather to show you the options you have. At Sartle, our mantra is to go big or go home.

So either go bold one way:

Or the other:


Étant donnés by Marcel Duchamp at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

You can even put on a show. Go all out. You can get your posse involved in this. Someone can spread rose petals on the bed, someone else can assist you in your wardrobe change(s), and another person can set the scene with a sufficient amount of airflow in your room. Because it’s about to get hot and sweaty!

Make sure to rehearse this beforehand so everyone knows their cues.

From there, we’re pretty sure you know the rest.


Go get ‘em, tiger.
