Why ASK? Because ASKING Attracts Like-Minded People to You
LAURA’s TIP: “Expecting someone to read your mind on what you want for Valentine’s Day can be a big mistake,” says The Expert on THE ASK© LAURA FREDRICKS. “I think people don’t know the right words to use so they don’t use any words at all. Then, if they do ask for it, they’re afraid it’s going to change or sour a relationship. So, they just hope their partner can figure it out, which means each person can be facing disappointment.” However, with easy ways to please, whether you’ve been married for years or you’re on your third date, LAURA believes that asking for what you want is not selfish, but builds trust and helps create clear communication. For making the best of your Valentine’s Day, she suggests offering your time instead of your wallet. Say, ‘Honey, I don’t know if you were thinking about getting me anything but if you were, I really just want to spend time with you.’ Which is the same way as saying, ‘Please don’t spend money on flowers, candy or dinner.’ For some, this is much more important.” For more on “How Both Couples and Singles Can Ask for What They Want on Valentine’s Day,” read here:
