It’s no secret men and women are wired differently, and when it comes to Valentine’s Day that can be a problem.
"In a woman’s world, they want romance; they want the Prince Charming, and the flowers and the dinner," said Lori C. Ebert PhD., health education.
But men are a different story. She says they hate it because of the expectations.
With the differences in how to approach the day, it may seem impossible to create an atmosphere of love and romance, but Ebert says in reality it’s actually pretty easy. Her advice is for the ladies to take charge.
"What I mean by take charge is not command them what to do, but to really create the evening to be what you want it to be," she said.
She says you can cater the day to your favorite guy by using sextrology, which is the blending of astrology and intimacy. Ebert shared suggestions for each of the four elements outlined in astrology; air, water, wind, and earth.
Taurus: The way to the heart of a sensual Taurus is through their stomach. Ebert said, "I defy you to find me a Taurus who doesn’t love food. They’ll actually pick food over romance and if you can bring that food into the bedroom they would probably like that even more."
Gemini: Feed the mind of the intellectual Gemini. Ebert suggests, "a new book, a new theater, a museum, anything that intrigues them that they don’t know that’s new and exciting or adventurous." Driving to a nearby city for dinner, or visiting a bookstore and reading together are some of Ebert’s suggestions for the evening.
Leo: Luxury is the name of the game when it comes to the extravagant Leo. "Get dressed up and go to the theater do something totally unexpected where you look good and you’re in the glam and the extravagance of things. So maybe you go downtown to the theater or you take them to the opera," said Ebert.
Scorpio: Your night will sizzle with this sexy sign. Ebert says Scorpio’s are 50 Shades of Gray and "you buy a sexy black dress that you’ve never worn before and you go into the hidden and the mysterious."
