You may be tempted to imbibe a little on Valentine’s Day. It may seem like the perfect occasion to drink a little wine to add to your romance. In fact, you may want to skip the drinking during your Valentine’s Day interlude and here are five reasons why.
Romance and Wine – Five Reasons not to Drink on Valentine’s Day
Stay in Control of Yourself
Even a little alcohol can reduce your inhibitions and make you say and do things you might not otherwise say or do. Whether you’re wanting to make a good impression on a new date or share a special night with someone you care deeply about, losing control of yourself due to drinking could easily ruin a great evening. Skip the wine so you can make sure that you are in control of your senses at all times.
Alcohol Can Cloud Judgment
Drinking alcohol can impair your judgment, even if you just drink a little. When you are on a date for Valentine’s Day, you don’t want to blow the mood by making some bad judgment calls. A little too much wine can make you misinterpret words and body language and can bring the date to a screeching halt or can ruin any romance before it even begins.
You Want Your Feelings to be Real
Just as alcohol can impair judgment, it can also make you misunderstand your feelings for someone. A little drink can loosen you up and you might give your date an impression that your feelings are more or less than they truly are. Don’t let a little wine dampen your date and make you wonder if your feelings of love or not-so-much-love are real.
You Want to Remember the Night
A few too many drinks can turn your romantic evening into a lost memory. You want to remember your Valentine’s Day celebration — whatever direction it takes. Don’t allow a few drinks to rob you of a great evening that you will want to remember, or make you forget an evening that you never want to repeat.
Alcohol Can Break Your Budget
If money is an issue and your budget is tight for your Valentine’s Day celebration with your date, a bottle of wine or a few drinks could easily break your budget. If you know that you need to keep your night out on a budget, don’t blow it with alcohol. Opt for water, sparkling grape juice, or soft drinks to keep you on track financially for your date.
These are just a few reasons why you might want to skip the drinking this Valentine’s Day. It’s more important to connect with your date and keep your judgment, your senses, and your feelings in line. You can imbibe in some wine at another time, but on Valentine’s Day you may be better off skipping the drinks.
