4 New Romantic Traditions to Start This Year

4. Give Yourself a Wonderful Gift -- Express Your Creativity
Most of us have hidden talents that we may be afraid to express. But the more creative you are -- the more willing you are to open up to what's inside you -- the more romantic your Valentine's Day can be. If you dream of becoming a poet, write a poem and read it to others. If you want to sing, write and sing a song. Paint a painting. Make a collage. Do something new and creative, and be sure to share it with those you love. Not only will this be a wonderful gift to them, but you will be giving yourself a gift as well. Creativity is the wellspring of romance; it is the way in which we are able to find joyous ways to share the person we truly are inside.

Make It Last: Make being more creative your Valentine's Day resolution. Keep up your writing, singing or painting. The more you use your art to open yourself up, the richer and fuller your relationship will be.
