Valentine's Day Ideas
These fantastic restaurants have a little something for everyone.
Maybe, with life being so busy, we have to prearrange it all, even if it means that we all end up celebrating our love in one identikit packaged, shrink-wrapped night. And yet... something about all that prearranged perfection makes me want that Boredom app to vibrate on my wrist or phone.
While I admit that I don't have a huge problem with Valentine's Day as a whole and am quite looking forward to the plans I have with my cute man on Saturday, I don't agree that Valentine's Day should be the only day you go out of your way for the one you care about.

Valentine's Day need not be all about couples. If you treat it as just a day of love, you can have a great day on your own; loving and looking after yourself. Don't complain about the lack of a partner; but instead, treasure the fact you have the time to pay attention to your own happiness.
A gush of oddball events, only loosely themed on love, are taking place across Britain this year.
