Valentine's Day is great for blissfully loved up couples, but for the average Brit it can bring up some complicated relationship woes.

We asked relationship coach, Dr Rohan Weerasinghe to answer the three biggest Valentine's Day questions that we're all too afraid to say out-loud...


I love my partner but there's no passion in our relationship. What can we do?


Take advantage of Valentine's Day and put in the extra effort to be romantic and intimate. If you've been disconnected from your partner for a while, your efforts won't seem contrived and you'll hopefully be able to use V-day as a catalyst to break your current pattern.


I'm single and Valentine's Day makes me feel alone. Am I being pathetic or is this normal?


It's important to remember there's a big distinction between being alone and feeling lonely. You are never truly alone - each of us has someone in our lives who we can reach out to. The sense of loneliness singles feel on Valentine's is connected to a lack of intimacy, so stop worrying about what you're missing and remember you have the chance to find a man who's kind, intelligent and handsome. The world's your oyster.


I feel under pressure to be extra romantic. How can I take the stress out of the situation?


When everyone else is buying each other heart shaped chocolate boxes it's easy to feel awkward. Why not choose a random day either before or after Valentine's Day where both of you agree to be romantic and surprise each other? The commercial pressure will be lifted but you'll still be revealing your passionate sides.
