A Gay Geek's Guide to Surviving Valentine's Day!

Well, Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away! After talking to some of our gay geeky coupled friends about hilarious mistakes they have made, we enlisted the help of cartoonist Jake Rohdy to create an illustrated guide to navigating potential missteps that might cause some strife on what is supposed to be the most romantic day of the year! Follow these steps and hopefully your Valentine's Day will be stress free!

#1) If you plan to go out to eat, MAKE RESERVATIONS! 
Like right now. Seriously. Nothing is a mood killer like driving around in a car for two hours trying to find a place to eat on Valentine's Day. So, unless you plan on waiting in line for ninety minutes at Olive Garden or settling for Taco Bell, start calling around now before everything decent fills up.

#2) Put Your Phones Away For One Night!
You can do it. Force yourself. Enjoy each other's company. No phones. No tablets. No video games (unless you are playing them together).

#3) Don't Go Overboard on Gifts!
This is a mistake we have all made at one time or another! If you are going to exchange gifts, keep it reasonable. There is no need to go into debt to show someone how you feel.

#4) No Gag Gifts!
Unless you have the boyfriend with the world's best sense of humor, we would suggest skipping the gag gifts. Save it for the birthday celebrations!

#5) If you are single this year... 
We suggest a night filled with video games, adult beverages, and junk food! Remember, every pizza is a personal pizza if you believe in yourself.
