i want to feel more confident on valentines day

It's mine and my girlfriend's first valentines and I want to make it special. She is absolutely wonderful and makes a point of letting me know how beautiful she finds me but I've gained a substantial amount of weight in the last year or two and have kind of given up trying to look nice while struggling to feel confident and comfortable in my body.

I want to work on feeling sexy! I know this is a long process but I was wondering if there was anything I could start on now to pump myself up for Valentine's Day. I ordered some lingerie but am honestly super nervous about wearing it. What can I do for my girlfriend that's romantic?

I'd love to hear what you gorgeous folks do to feel confident and excited before a date or sexy evening!

What works for me is separating the idea of feeling sexy and the idea of being sexy.

Lingerie, smooth, lotioned skin, a good perfume- those things are sexy whether I'm feeling my most confident or not. Certain actions will always be a turn on for my partner whether I think I'm a ten or a two that day. It might not be how it works for everyone, but that's what works for me.

you could make her a favorite dinner and make a playlist of all the songs you love or remind you of her. the simplest things can be so romantic! I do't have a big budget for Valetines but i love doing sweet things for each other. and then you could maybe give her a massage and light cute candles.

i think a good body lotion and self care is perfect for getting in the sexy mood for valentines. just do special things for yourself and each other. hope you enjoy your first valentines together!
