  大家好,

  Dear Fam,

  刚送走春节,情人节就迫不及待的接踵而至。每年都想破脑筋挑花,挑礼物,挑餐厅,挑房,挑内衣......然而年复一年,这个每年最虐狗的节日在烂大街的红玫瑰和爆满的酒店房间中,也没什么新意了。

  Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s the time of the year when people think really hard about what gift to get for their other half, which restaurant and hotel to book, even which underwear to wear. Year after year, hardly anything new happens on Valentine’s Day anymore.

  

  能做的事其实很多,根据你的预算、时间,想干嘛都行。今天咱们来聊聊,情人节几大雷区,你千万别踩。

  You can do whatever your budget and time allow. Today let’s talk about what not to do on Valentine’s Day.

  当然,你长得足够好看,以下内容可以略过。

  Keep reading unless you are attractive enough and don't need any help.

  约会禁忌

  Taboos to be avoided on a date

  穿着打扮太随便

  Looking unkempt

  谁都不想看见对方穿着破洞颓废的牛仔裤、皱巴巴的咸菜干衬衫来赴约吧!整齐合宜的穿着打扮是尊重对方的表现,如果在情人节见面穿得太随便,毫不修饰,等于在告诉对方,你一点都不在乎这次约会。就算你们是在一起多年的“老夫老妻”,这样特殊的日子悉心打扮一下,也是浪漫的第一步呀。

  No one likes to date someone in ragged jeans and a wrinkled shirt. Dressing decently shows respect, and if you look unkempt on Valentine’s Day, your other half will think you don’t care about the date. Even if you’ve been together for years, dressing up for such a special occasion is the first step to a romantic night.

  

  迟到,还拼命找借口

  Being late and trying to make up an excuse

  一种情况让人为之气结,就是迟到了也不先道个歉,反而扯一堆借口,虽然工作日大家都忙,但是这也不是为自己的迟到脱罪的借口。建议最好比约定时间提早5分钟到,不仅可以让自己喘口气,还可以顺便整理一下仪容,摆好pose风骚地等对方出现。

  Being late on Valentine’s Day is bad; trying to come up with an excuse is even worse. Everyone is busy on a work day, thus work is no excuse for being late. You should arrive at least five minutes earlier so you have time to take a breath and strike a nice-looking pose as you wait for your other half to appear.

  口沫横飞地只谈自己的事

  Talking only about yourself

  或许你们是第一场约会,也可能是第N次约会,但是不管怎么样,在情人节约会当天,不要在整个过程中只有你自己口沫横飞地说个不停,不让对方有说话、表达自己想法的机会。切记,你们是在约会,对方不是来听你的单口相声的。如果平时的你不善于表达你的浪漫,也许这一天也是个好机会说说心里话。

  Maybe it’s your first date. Maybe it’s your who-knows-how-many-already date. Whichever the case is, do not just talk about yourself all night. Your other half is here for a date, not your stand-up comedy show. If you're not good at expressing your love on ordinary days, Valentine’s Day may be the perfect opportunity for you to do so.

  

  身上带的现金不够付账

  Don’t have enough cash to pay the bill

  虽说一卡在手能行遍天下,再加上支付宝、微信这些快捷付款方式,但你还是会碰到必须掏出现金付账的情况。为了避免到时候遍寻不着提款机、硬着头皮要对方先为你垫钱的尴尬场面,最好在出门时,先数数皮夹里的现金够不够应付这次约会的开销。

  Indeed we have credit cards, Alipay and WeChat to make payments with today, but you may still run into the “cash only” situation. To avoid the awkward moment of asking your other half to pay (even though you will pay her back later), you should make sure you have enough cash at hand before you go for the date.

  

  送礼禁忌

  Taboos to be avoided on gifting

  1

  满大街同款的玫瑰花。相比较于99朵低品质的红玫瑰,配上俗烂的包装,不如一精心挑选一束甚至一只玫瑰,当然,花盒、永生花等新兴产品也是不错的选择。

  Low-quality roses. 99 inferior roses with tacky packaging won’t compare to a carefully designed bouquet or even just one single rose of supreme quality. Of course, a flower box and preserved fresh flowers are great options as well.

  

  2

  毫无心意可言的礼物。所谓萝卜青菜各有所爱,送礼不能只看价格,价值也是很重要的一方面。对方已经有上百件的东西就不要重复送啦,想想平时逛街、聊天的间隙中对方透露过什么喜欢又一直没舍得买的?还有一种就是当你看到某一件物品,让你联系起心中的她/他,那一定也是个不错的选择。当然啦,富有一点儿寓意和期待,也会显得你在关系当中积极、健康。比如,

  Perfunctory gifts. Gifting is not just about the monetary value. Sentimental value is important as well. Don’t give your other half things he or she already owns. Recall what he or she has mentioned loving but hasn’t purchased, or something that makes you think of him or her. Of course, a gift which represents good meanings and wishes shows your love and care.

  餐厅禁忌

  Taboos to be avoided on picking a restaurant

  关于撩妹挑餐厅这个事情其实我们已经说过一次啦(有多少人撩不到妹是因为挑错了餐厅?)。在此我们需要重申几个关键点:

  We’ve talked about how to pick the right restaurant for a date night(You Can’t Hit on Girls in The Restaurant?). Here are some key points:

  1

  提前订位。大冬天的拉着妹子在马路边等位不是一件太浪漫的事情哦。无论你去哪里就餐,都尽量提前确定有位置。对,就现在,打电话吧!

  Make a reservation. Letting your girl wait on the street for seating isn’t so romantic. Wherever you go, you should make sure that there’s a table available. Better make your reservation now!

  

  2

  交通便利。预估好晚班下班高峰会花的时间,不要让你亲爱的他/她等的太久哦。

  Take your time spent in transit into consideration. Don’t let your other half wait for you.

  

  3

  一家完美的餐厅,美酒,美食。挑一家环境舒适、灯光撩人的餐厅;挑一家食物物超所值,健康,却不失美味的餐厅;挑一家从前菜、到酒水,都无比用心的餐厅。

  Pick the perfect restaurant with healthy and delicious food and wine, a comfortable environment and alluring lighting. Pick one that serves its guests wholeheartedly.
