Valentine’s Day is renowned as the season of love, but could it be possible that the lovey-dovey holiday can actually make it harder for romance to survive?
According to Anthony Brown from the YouTube channel SciShow Psych, Valentine’s Day can act as a catalyst for relationships to either deteriorate or grow stronger. The holiday pushes focus upon acting affectionate with your partner ad buying them gifts such as flowers and chocolate. Focusing on these aspects too closely can result in feelings of obligation or expected obligation from a partner. Thus genuine gratitude and true feelings of romance can be strained.
As Valentine’s Day has now come to pass, is your relationship still sailing smooth or are there choppy waters ahead?
