Cupid's Pulse Article: Check Out ‘The Vow’ This Valentine’s DayCupid's Pulse Article: Check Out ‘The Vow’ This Valentine’s Day

By Matthew Dougherty

With Valentine’s Day coming up, this movie is sure to be a hit.  Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum star was Paige and Leo, a happily married couple whose lives could change forever after a fateful car accident leaves Paige without the memories of their entire relationship.  To make matters worse, Paige believes she is still engaged to her ex, who likes the idea of having her back.  Leo must make her fall in love with him all over again.

Should You See It? Don’t expect quality cinema here, but it should be a fun way to spend a night at the movies.

Who To Take: Take your mother to this one, or maybe your best friend — someone you know will enjoy the movie as much as you will and enjoy spending time with you.  This is probably a bit too sappy to bring a boyfriend to, especially since the same weekend a Star Wars movie is getting re-released in 3D.

Don’t want a forgettable relationship?  Here are some tips to make memories that neither of you will ever forget.

Cupid’s Advice:

In The Vow, all of Paige and Leo’s great memories are gone, but Leo is willing to relive them to get her back.  In the unlikely chance that this happens to you, you want your boyfriend or husband to do the same thing!  Here are some ways to create memories you will want to revisit all the time.

1. Do something different. Typical dates are a lot of fun but there are only so many times you can do dinner and a movie.  To mix things up go to an amusement park or take a day trip to somewhere neither of you have been before.

2. Keep it simple. Not every date has to be an extravagant affair.  Some of the best memories can be made by doing something you would never think of doing.  Stuff like stopping by the local toy store or going to the beach at night are simple, yet different enough to stand out when you think back on them.

3. Chemistry. Memories can be made simply by having great chemistry with your partner.  This is where inside jokes come from that you could be joking about in your twilight years. The memories you are making will only be worth it if you have good chemistry.
