Valentine’s Day is an opportunity

Valentine’s Day is one day in the year that you can use as opportunity to show your wife that you love and appreciate her, and show your kids how to care for those you love.

Use this day as an example of how to treat those that you love.

Know what your partner likes

Do not go the standard route and give your partner the standard gifts.

If you want to make a true impression and show them that you care, then buy or take them to the experiences that they love.

It’s going to take communication. It’s going to take you asking – yes, in advance – what do they like? What do they want? … what are some things they would never expect you to do that you can surprise them with? Surprise yourself and do them. (Willie Cisneros)

Willie’s guide for husbands

  • Show affection: some men struggle with showing affection to their wives. Have you asked yourself why, if you do? It’s not unmanly, and it does not make you less strong. Being able to be soft and loving makes you a stronger man and a better husband.
  • Let go of previous Valentine’s Day experiences: had a rough day last year? Let it go. Do not be afraid to keep trying, and do something different. It is about making the effort to get to know your wife and to celebrate loving her. Make that a continual effort.
  • The best thing you can do is to plan: do some research and make a plan. Organize something that you and your wife would both enjoy doing. Remember to keep her desires in mind, and do not be afraid to make her the center of the day. If she sees you focusing on her, then she will be more likely to focus on you too.

The bottom line is that there are no excuses, you gotta have something. We’re looking for progress over perfection. Don’t try to make it perfect and be down on yourself. Have a plan … always have a backup plan too. (Willie Cisneros)

  • Don’t break the bank but don’t be a cheapskate: you do not have to go all out on the money, but do try to make an effort to spoil her.
  • Ask her what she would like to do: have an idea of the things that she would like, and then surprise her with a handful of those.

Do it because you want to

Spoil and surprise her because you want to. Do not go into it expecting something from her.

If there is something that you would like as well, communicate that.

Veronica Cisneros | Empowered And Unapologetic Podcast

Hello, my name is Veronica Cisneros, I am a licensed marriage and family therapist for over 7 years, a Group Private Practice owner, a Mother of 3, and married for over 20 years. I help housewives transform their marriage, communicate effectively and build confidence. Like you, I also struggled with cutting through the communication barriers. I felt like there was no reason for my husband and I to feel unhappy because we had it all. We just felt disconnected and our conversations were filled with avoidance, kids’ hobbies, and schedules. 

I’ve helped plenty of couples in my private practice who struggled with similar issues. With my proven strategies and step-by-step skills, I’ve helped hundreds of women reignite their marriages. I am known for helping women step outside of their comfort zones, I don’t do bandaids, I only teach life-changing healing methods.
