Valentine's Day for new couples may feel awkward.
Whether you've been on only one date or have been seeing each other for a couple of weeks, the dreaded red-hearted holiday can make even the most confident dater feel insecure about how to approach the holiday.
The boombox scene in the movie "Say Anything" is one of the most romantic film scenes. But guys are starting to feel the pressure with the most romantic day approaching fast.
"Every day is Valentine's Day with us. Now, is that sappy or what?" said Brian Holker.
Not at all, but then again Holker has been married for 31 years.
So what if you're in a new relationship? What if you've only been on one or two dates?
"The same way you're approaching it with me. You talk to the person if that's what you want out of a relationship. You want someone you can communicate with, start right away," said Therapist Steven Katz. "Say, you know I'm a little worried. I don't know what you've been thinking, but the whole Valentine's Day thing -- what do you usually do?"
Katz is a therapist in Honolulu and says don't surprise the new lady in your life. Instead, lay your cards out on the table so both know what to expect.
"Maybe a lunch -- not too serious. If you want to do the flower thing, maybe one rose -- something like that," said Katz.
If you're that uncomfortable with a romantic idea, maybe skip it all together. Why not go play paintball, go rock climbing or go to an unromantic movie.
