Press release date: 10th February 2015

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and many people will be planning romantic gestures to sweep their loved one off their feet.

However, with so much romancing going on, many people often forget that Valentine’s Day poses its own set of problems that could potentially ruin all of your thoughtful efforts.

Siobhan Grehan, Director of nursing at Tropical Medical Bureau, knows exactly what can go wrong and has provided her very own guide for avoiding any Valentine’s disasters.

She says, “Valentine’s Day provides the ideal chance to express your love for your partner but failing to make sure you’re prepared for all eventualities can leave you open to having your plans ruined. By following these simple tips, you’ll be able to rest assured that your Valentine’s Day will be nothing short of spectacular.”

Here are Siobhan’s Valentine’s Day tips:

1: You may want to impress your loved one with some sexy dance moves but remember, broken ankles and pulled muscles will put an end to any potential action.

2: Preparing a romantic dinner? Make sure you cook chicken thoroughly if you want to avoid any nasty cases of Salmonella.

3: Whispering sweet nothings to your date over a few drinks may seem romantic but drinking too much can make you say something you might regret the next day!

4: Planning to take your other half out for a fancy dinner? Don’t forget to make a reservation! Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest nights for eating out all year.

5: If you’re heading on a hot date, bring protection. Giving your partner an STI is one way to ruin your chances of a romantic future together.

6: Proposing to your loved one in public might seem like a romantic grand gesture but it can leave you open to public humiliation – be sure before you bend the knee.

7: Filling a room with candles is undoubtedly impressive but one wrong move and your Valentine’s Day could literally go up in flames.

8: Whisking your partner away on a romantic weekend abroad? Make sure the tap water is safe to drink – an upset stomach will definitely kill the mood.

9: Sex has been known to cause heart attacks, brain haemorrhages and muscle injuries – be careful about overexerting yourself.

10: Surprising somebody with flowers is a lovely idea unless they suffer from pollen allergies!
