Another valentine is just around the corner and as usual, couples feel that knowing pressure of making it extra-special. Something about trying to out-do the previous year’s valentine keeps couples from truly doing what really matters.
But valentine doesn’t have to be a Big-Bang, dazzling event that drains the bank account. While spoiling each other with expensive gifts and treats are still fanciful, spending quality time is all that counts.
And no, we are not talking about the cliché restaurant outings alone; here are7 unique valentine activities you can try this year:
1. Give each other a massage
You know that feeling of lying in bed and having some strong or soft fingers work out the knots in your shoulders and feet? Yeah! Why not relinquish that this valentine?
When you and your partner at that level of your relationship, bathing together might not sound unique. But here is something to spice things up.
Place candles or spotlights at attractive places around the bathtub, get a bowl of strawberries, a tray of chocolate, and a chilled bottle of champaign; all at arms’ length. Have a long, hot, tub bath together, while munching on sweets and champaign.
3. Have a romantic movie marathon
We gave an example of a movie marathon in a previous post. Since this year’s valentine falls on a Sunday, it makes for a great escape from reality and into the entertainment of tons of movies.
Be sure to have popcorn, drinks, and each other during this marathon; and make time for desserts and in-house lunch or dinner between movies.
4. Play a game together
When was the last time you two played a game just for two? It might be something classic as a Ludo or Whot, or something deeper like a Truth or Dare game.
If both of you are outdoor champs, this might be the perfect day to race each other to a stadium, play snooker, table tennis, or go swimming.
5. Try a new kitchen special
Cooking together is always perfect for Valentine. However, instead of making what you already know, why not try something new and special for both of you?
The internet is overflowing with exciting dishes for valentine from every part of the world. Set today to try that special Thai cuisine or French salad; as far as the ingredients are within reach.
6. Drive around town
You don’t have to have a destination in mind. Just gas up the car, hop in and drive! If you are in Lagos, check out places to visit.
There is that fun of plying roads you both have never plied before, getting lost in a city and finding your way back. Yeah!
Good thing is, you can always crash into a new restaurant or park to eat or catch fun, then zoom off again. Luckily, Google Map now makes drive-around safe and superfun.
7. Work together on a new craft or art
Creative couples with busy-hands may want to create something together this day; whatever it is. From making a photo-scrapbook to splash painting, sketching each other, or even making a toy.
Anything at all.
Poetry is yet another art. Have you ever wondered what you’d write your partner if given a pen and 24 hours of thinking? Why not game each other with this one and have each person submit their poem to the other, at the end of the day.
Valentine is always a great day for couples to embrace the company of each other, especially with uninterrupted services.
Even more than any other month, February always seems to emit an aura of love and affection. So, it is not unlikely to hear more about relationships this month than in any other month. But while it can be quite a norm to address normal relationships within normal ranges. Other relationship types that might not fall within the “normal” are worth recognising too. In this sense, long distance relationships should be on note. The popular belief basically is that relationships across long distances have a very slim chance of working out well. And yes, this can be very true. However, long-distance relationships also have prospects for longevity when the partners in question adhere to certain conditions.
So, in this turn, here are tips on how to keep a long distance relationship going.
Take it or leave it, the most important tip in keeping a distant relationship is talking. This is the only weaponry faraway lovers have in bonding. Usually, there is a lot to talk about, it only takes the patient ones to find the right conversations and delve deep. You can talk about your goals, the ground rules you need to observe, serious things, playful things. You can also make reference to your adventures, your emotions, your expectations…
Really, going on to talk about anything and everything; to greet each other good morning and good night will definitely avoid any sort of miscommunication. And it will give room to more closeness.
VTpass, an online payment platform, provides just the right atmosphere for your conversations to lengthen and grow. Through VTpass, you can easily buy your airtime and data for your voice calls, video calls and social media chats. By logging on to www.vtpass.com or downloading the VTpass mobile app on Google Play Store, you can conveniently buy yourself a time with your distant lover in just three easy steps.
Also, the vital key to a long distance relationship is trust. Partners in two exclusive places must be able to trust each other to remain faithful. Jealousy, strife, insecurities, these are the fastest way to quell a relationship. So they are best avoided.
Who says faraway couples can’t give themselves beautiful treats? So, your partner lives far away alright? But there really ain’t a place we can’t get to in this world. SO, why not take the time once in a while to visit each other. And then make the best of the time doing what you both enjoy. Also, you can stay afar off and still have fun. Delivery, online shopping, digital gifts, all these can spice your relationship
So yes, everyone thinks it’s good to be open in a relationship, right? Well, in a long distance relationship, the level of openness has to double. Because you are afar off, every shred of information must pass round between the two couples all the time.
It is not really a great idea to be playing games in a long distance relationship. But it is not equally a bad idea if you spring up surprises on each other, play pranks and make things fun. Online games
Honestly, long distance ain’t really the ideal thing. So, as soon as it can be over with, then you should get it over with. So, two couples in love should as much as possible keep looking at the train and be eager to go home.

Before this reads to the end, let’s just glance over a brief history of Valentine’s Day.
So, Valentine’s Day is connected to a popular Saint Valentinus in Rome. This Saint, a priest who lived around the second AD met his death in a gruesome way. Martyred for performing weddings for soldiers with a pact of celibacy and courting persecuted Christians, Valentine got a populous pedigree for his act of love and service.
Also, before his death on the 14th of February, Valentine went on to heal the blind daughter of his jailer and professedly, wrote a letter to her ending it with “Your Valentine”. In truth and in deed, he loved the jailer’s daughter. This dealt a final absolution to his name and made it just appropriate to describe a love season.
Then, around the 14th century (the medieval age), Valentine’s Day became a trend. On this day, lovers show love to one another with confectionaries, flowers and greeting cards they call valentines. Now, Valentine’s Day is a widely celebrated day. And although there is no public holiday on this day, it bears a lot of credence among religious and secular circles.
And for this year’s Valentine’s Day, February 14th, VTpass has all the intention to extend a gesture of love. Because love does not hang on mere words, it lives in the deeds; in those gestures that, though small, go on to last forever.
VTpass wishes everyone who is privileged to sit around a table of roasted turkey or other sumptuous meal and say thanks a happy Thanksgiving. There is nothing worth thankful for than being alive and having your family and friends all around you. And what’s a Thanksgiving without sharing? Well, VTpass has made sharing, even more, fun and convenient through the online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can easily share airtime and data with your friend. You can even afford to pay their electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions and so much more without having to see them at all. Really, this is more than any plastic-wrapped turkey you can afford to give them.
Talking about roasted turkey; this week, Donald Trump performed the obligatory before-thanksgiving ceremony where he got to pardon a lucky turkey and spare him the burden of coming under the knife.
The turkey which weighs about 36 pounds was given official pardon while the rest are left to bend their neck to the Thanksgiving celebration. Honestly, except for the fact that it is practised by one of the world’s powerful nations, this tradition sounds quite bizarre but it has quite a formidable heritage supporting it. Something that truly deserves a telling over and over again.
It all started with Tad, the fine son of our good president, Abraham Lincoln. In 1863, a turkey had been brought to Lincoln’s home for Christmas dinner. But young Tad took a liking for the turkey and pleaded that its life should be spared. Following this, the tradition of keeping a turkey alive has somehow managed to slip into modern civilisation.
But at first, it was not quite a binding rule to spare these turkeys. In fact, dead and roasted turkeys were usually offered as gifts to presidents during the 1870s. A Rhode Island poultry farmer Horace Vose was very accountable in this regard. Called the poultry king, Vose’dead and roasted Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys started with President Ulysses S. Grant and continued till he died in 1913. Even after his death, the “turkey gifts” were established as a customary practice and an emblem of goodness.
It was not until 1947 that the National Turkey Federation and the Poultry and Egg National Board gave live turkeys to the then President Harry Truman. Somehow, President Truman got pretty excited about this and photographed himself with the adorable turkey weighing 42 pounds before slapping it unto his Christmas plate. But already, the iconic image stuck out like a thumb in the minds of many.
President John Kennedy in 1963 took a cue from this and pardoned a turkey given him for a celebration. The president’s choice to offer clemency to the turkey might be slightly influenced by the sign that stuck around the turkey’s head which read, “Good eating, Mr President.” To this, Mr President simply replied, “We’ll just let this one grow.”
After Kennedy, this sparing a turkey’s life, it was pretty much becoming a campaign so that President Richard Nixon went on to send off the birds offered to him as gifts to the local petting zoo. Perhaps he didn’t feel right sending off the birds to a straightforward death in the presidential kitchen. President Ronald Reagan followed this trend, sending off Charlie, his birdie gifts to the Frying Pan petting zoo, but not without mentioning that the turkey had been pardoned.

George Bush (C) pardons a turkey named Pumpkin
Well, George H. W. Bush on the 17th day of November 1989 came all out to declare the pardoning of turkeys. He said “let me assure you, and this fine tom turkey…he’s granted a presidential pardon as of right now.”
And true to Bush’s words, several lucky turkeys have received pardon every November at the hands of benevolent American presidents.
Wow, this is quite a story. It tells of the making of history by merely sharing and offering gifts. You too can make a good impression on your folks by sharing so much love with your family.

If there is one thing we can never take a break from, despite the fast lane on which life tows these days, it is love. Love really does make the world go round. Every day, new relationships sprout up and old ones die. Maybe you suddenly have budded affection for a particular someone and you are thinking of cementing your growing feelings. Yes, going into a relationship with this special person would be the right thing to do. But there are certain factors you need to note before starting out. You wouldn’t want to get heartbroken or find out that you had been on a crumbling galley all along.
1. THE TIME FACTOR
Now it is important you consider if you have the time on your hands to go into a relationship. Are you a thoroughly busy person who barely has time to live for yourself? Then, you should not be thinking of bringing someone into your life. Because in a relationship, you have to be responsible for the other person. There is no way a relationship will work if one of the duos is miserly with time. For love to grow into any height, there is a need for the partners to send a lot of quality time together.
Spending time together does not necessarily have to happen physically all the time. Logging on to www.vtpass.com, for instance, affords you the opportunity of buying phone airtime and data subscription conveniently from anywhere and at any time. So you can call your partner from wherever you are and at any time. You can also have takeout and TV time with your potential other. Just make sure to pay for your electricity bills and tv subscription at your very convenience with www.vtpass.com.
You should know if your partner equally feels the same way as you feel about them. It would be pointless if you are the only one head over heels, and your partner is not really into you as you are into them. This inevitably turns a relationship into a sour grape. Even before verbally confirming a partner’s feelings for you, there are ways you can find out if your intended lover feels something for you. For one thing, the body language of people; their regular dreamy gaze at you or shying away once you look at them, their endless attempt to mirror your movements, touch you and laugh at your not-so-good jokes can mean they like you.
Also, try asking for help to see if they will hurriedly come to your aid. Notice if there are any subtle compliments coming their way or if their friends are all cosy around you once you show up. These are signs that can indicate if the feeling is mutual. And once you find out, don’t hang around too long, feeling too special. Make sure you immediately reach out by calling straight up or striking a friendly conversation on social media apps. Vtpass.com comes in handy here. Having double thoughts about reaching out to a sweetheart? At www.vtpass.com, we don’t give a chance for second thoughts. The faster your fingers are in logging on to www.vtpass.com to get your phone airtime or data subscription, that’s just how nearer you are to hooking up with your potential other.
Before going into a relationship, you must consider the things you expect from your proposed partner. Not just that, discuss these expectations with them. Do you expect to see your partner every day in a week or do you expect your guy to always take you on romantic night-outs and call you at night before you go to bed? Then you would want your partner to know. Don’t expect them to know because we are all humans. Know what you want and then ask for it. Ther is no way you can have a go at great night-outs or late night conversations without buying airtime or data subscription or making sure the electricity bill is settled. You can conveniently do this in record time by logging on to www.,vtpass.com
4. PAST RELATIONSHIPS
Still looking back to the bustling romance you had with an ex or that event that happened to you in the past and has affected the way you see things or view people? Then you wouldn’t mind taking a backseat, crossing your legs, folding your arms and sipping some chilled drink with a straw. Long and hard.
Because no, you are not ready for a relationship. Going into a relationship with some lurking past creeping in is not a good way to groom a relationship. And certainly not the perfect note to start at all. So why not rid yourself of this haunting past, no matter how painful it is. And start afresh. Every day presents us with a new opportunity, a new life.
Please don’t tie yourself to the past that you can’t relive. Talking about sitting back and taking a drink, you would also like to add a couple of refreshing episodic Telemundo soap-opera from the big screen. And definitely, you would need a good running decoder for that. You can renew your DStv, GOtv, Startimes decoder conveniently, efficiently and comfortably by logging on to www.vtpass.com, clicking on Pay TV subscription, selecting the appropriate options and paying.
Take it or leave it, going into a relationship without considering the character trait of potential significant other is like buying a car without giving thoughts to its engine. And that, you must agree, is the easiest way to landing in a crash. You wouldn’t want to do that so you should want to check out the character of your partner. Is there is any sign of excessive anger, bossiness, rudeness or the personal things you detest in a person? Is your partner a control freak, an attention seeker? Of course, being in love, you would not immediately see this. But still make sure that while you are following your heart, you do not leave your brain behind.
In all these, starting out into a relationship is one great thing that can happen to a person. But starting out right gives a better edge. Vtpass.com helps you give just the right spice to a new or growing relationship. As you can save time and spend quality moments with your lover with the easy, quick way of paying bills. Buy your phone airtime, data subscription, TV subscription, electricity bills and so much more by visiting our site www.vtpass.com. Get started with vtpass.com and watch that budding relationship ignite into a forever affair.
