Ladies, need a hot date? Too bad this one’s mine. This helpful dating ad was taped up on a Brooklyn subway platform with some scotch tape and not a little bit of hope. Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Soda, or ice cream, or just, you know, a walk and some romance. Sounds pretty good if you ask me. [Happy Place]
It’s just about Valentine’s Day, and in honor of the Hallmark-iest holiday, I wanted to find out how some of my relationship-ed friends knew that they had found their special someone. It could be a moment, a glance, or the way he tied his shoes. Love is just like that, I guess. Read on for some adorable stories of the “moment I knew he was the one.” and please, please share your gushy love story in the comments!

Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be about who loves you, but whom you love. It’s the one day out of the year when you should take account of those people in your life who make you gleefully vomit little candy hearts. Being loved back isn’t nearly as important in life as boldly, recklessly, sincerely loving someone regardless of any returns on investment. Making love, not taking it, is the primary occupation of the human condition, our core programming, whether we realize it or accept it or not. All other activities and pursuits are secondary.
Instead, Valentine’s Day feels like emotional extortion. To many men, it’s an inconvenience to dread, a relationship hoop set aflame which one must deftly prance through like an expertly trained poodle. And to other men, it’s a day of opportunity. Keep reading »
Cooking as a couple is fun, sexy, and super rewarding. This Valentine’s Day, why not skip the expensive restaurant reservation, roll up your sleeves, and spend some quality time together in the kitchen? After the jump, what you’ll need for the perfect romantic dinner at home. Keep reading »
No date for Valentine’s Day and not afraid to do something desperate to get one? For $300, $700, or $1,200 you can pay for a membership package on PersonalDatingAgent.com to help you find that special someone. And luckily for you, the “initial setup fee” is free until Valentine’s Day! Whoopie!
So, how do you go about deciding which package is right for you? First it’s a question of finances. How much money do you have to spend on an incredible dating service with a plethora of testimonials by young professionals (James, John, Sarah, and Elizabeth) who claim to love the site that “does all of the work for them”? I personally think I’d go with the “executive package.” For only $1,200 I would be guaranteed 4+ dates and services including predate advice, stylist advice, concierge service and a professional photo shoot.

I love you more than HazMat protective suits. More than smoking meth with my buddies in my parent’s abandoned house. More than even Skylar loves money laundering through the car wash. Yes, my love for you is breaking bad. That’s why I hope you’ll accept this “Breaking Bad” V-Day card. We’ve got crazy chemistry, bitch. [Butthorn]
And so the love cycle goes. New love in, old love out. How awesome would it have been if this was the diagram we had to memorize back in science class? [Pleated Jeans]

Yesterday evening, I met The Young One outside my office with no idea of where we were going or what we were doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I’d pressed him for clues all week and the most he would give me was, “You’ll really like it,” and “If you wear heels, nothing too high.” We began walking, zigging and zagging down the unseasonably warm New York City streets. Every time I thought I had an idea of where we were headed, he’d laugh at my guess, shake his head ‘no,’ and make an abrupt turn. Finally he said, “This is it,” motioning toward an awning with the words “Ballroom Dancing” printed on it. Keep reading »
Thank you, Cupid, for this Valentine’s Day miracle. After breaking up in 2004, Barbie and Ken have decided to get back together. Yesterday, Barbie, who apparently has a Facebook page even though she’s made of sculpted plastic, wrote a status update that read, “Who knows … maybe I’ll have a Valentine this year.” Then this morning, she changed her status to “In a Relationship.” Keep reading »
