At Anti-Valentine’s Day parties organise your own “let’s meet” games that often turn into love stories.

Give love not to one but to all!

Instead of spending the entire day with your partner only hanging out and spending money, go and volunteer together and make others happy. You along with your partner could go and spend time at an old age home, an orphanage or an animal shelter.

Passion, energy, intimacy… what more could you need on Valentine’s Day? Try to take some Argentinean tango dance classes with your partner, an experience you will remember forever.

Try a new challenge!

Your partner is supposed to be the one who knows best about you and the details of your life. Guess what! A fitness tracker may know better in some cases. It knows the distance walked or run, calorie consumption, and also heartbeat and quality of sleep.
