Guys, Get Your "Pre-Game" Going for Valentine's Day!
Calendar quirk offers an opportunity to make the Valentine's mood last all week!

Valentine's Day – Feb. 14 - is on a Friday. Its landing on the last day of the work week opens the door to some serious "pre-game" groundwork by guys looking to impress their girlfriends, wives or other romantic interest, said Rhonda Deaver, owner of Snapdragon Flowers of Elm Grove.
"A guy who is serious about his 'pre-game' will send a woman something on Monday or Tuesday of Valentine's week, so that she can enjoy it well ahead of the Friday Valentine's Day," Deaver said. "Even better, send it to her workplace, so that her coworkers all see the gift, and tell her how lucky she is to have someone so thoughtful in her life."
This proactive gesture allows a couple to enjoy all of Valentine's week. Given that Valentine's Day falls on a Friday, restaurants and other romantic haunts will likely be extra busy … and perhaps a less relaxed experience than hoped. Stretching out the mood all week – via smart "pre-game" planning – lessens the need for a flawless Friday.

Love is love, too - don't forget Mom and Grandma in Valentine's Day outreach. And yes, Deaver noted, it's OK for a woman to send flowers to a man. Just make them eye-catching, without being "pretty."
"Order your flowers sooner to get exactly what you want," she said. "A Valentine's calendar like this doesn't happen often, so enjoy the chance to extend Valentine's week into an extra memorable time."
