SANTA ROSA BEACH — The secret to a successful Valentine’s Day isn’t the gift for your loved one, the expense of the meal or anything quantifiable.

It’s being present and engaged, and creating a memorable moment, said Kandi Gardiner, a love and life coach based in Santa Rosa Beach.

“I think guys get stressed about (Valentine’s Day) because they never know what to buy, or women get stressed because it’s usually a dinner out and they want to look good,” Gardiner said. “The important thing is — it’s like a kiss. … You can tell someone is into you by the way they kiss you, if they take a moment, pause, you can tell how engaged they are with you. It’s about the moment, being warm, taking their face in your hands, being sincere, saying ‘I love you deeply’ and here are the reasons why.”

Gardiner, who has a master’s degree in psychology and also has worked as a corporate counselor, will lead a seminar on passion and love as part of the “Romance on the Water” cruise aboard Custom Yacht Charters on Valentine’s Day.

“The basis of most discontent is the lack of feeling loved and valued,” she said. “I want to help people identify their core values and then find the partner who’s most in alignment with their values, and learn to manifest their love. You can be a loving person, but if you never manifest your love to someone else, they won’t know.”
