What do women really want on Valentines Day? The answer is simple and most definitely not ‘different’!

Valentines is here again and advertisers have commenced their annual attack on male insecurities, suggesting tradition isn’t enough; you need to be clever, quirky and ‘give her something different’.

But a survey released this week by community website reveals that, whilst a full 50% of men are desperately trying to be unique, a resounding 75% of women would prefer to receive traditional red roses and most definitely do not want any of the alternatives!

So lets be honest guys: No matter what the slick TV voices say, we really don’t dream of owning a 40 track compilation of Tom Jones hits (plus bonus CD) performed by some random Welsh Choir.

And whilst lingerie might seem romantic, have you ever noticed the gaping chasm between what men like and what women are actually willing to ‘slip into’?

Teddy Bears are cute but the placard announcing your Sex Goddess status transforms them into one of those embarrassing artifacts you feel obliged to put on display, but equally obliged to keep out of public view.

And we all know that Sex on Legs Mug will only serve as a time-bomb awaiting the moment her mother offers to help wash-up.

So the message is simple: If you want to make your lady happy this Valentines, relax, stop stressing and stick with tradition.
