I am sure all of us have daydreamed about the “what if” we agreed to go into lockdown with the last person we went out on a date with, or that new person we are chatting and Zooming with now that we’ve been in quarantine for what is nearing four months.

The Guardian interviewed a number of couples who did just that.  A few didn’t work out, but there’s a charming tale of a middle aged couple that decided to shack up after a handful of dates (so it was kind of an endless da...

You might think there’s not a lot of choice this year, but you’d be surprised by two of the smaller films on offer.  I was.

I had heard that Portrait of a Lady on Fire was the lesbian film of the year (last year) and I noticed that it was being re-released for Valentine’s Day this year, so I arranged to go to a screening, not really knowing what the film was about.  It blew me away, so much so that I can honestly say that it was by far the best film I’ve seen in the last year.

I am single this year, by choice, on Valentine’s Day.  I am working three jobs and a little too pre-occupied.  I know that I just don’t have the time, patience or the inclination to be charming and coiffed at my age for someone else’s amusement, so I am facing Valentine’s Day uncoupled.

Not everyone loves or wants chocolate shaped hearts, and America's candy manufacturers are well aware of that, that’s why Skittles, Lindt and Kit Kat are rolling out something different this year.

Skittles has introduced their Love Mix, which features a combination of red, pink and white candies in the flavors of watermelon, white grape and cherry.

Kit Kat is offering a new Raspberry Crème candy bar, which consists of the familiar crisp wafer, coated in raspberry-flavored white crème. The new candy is a pretty pink chocolate bar.

Lindt is offe...

When all other forms of dating—apps, singles events, and going out to bars—fail, why not go with something a little less conventional like, say, a giant billboard with your face on it?

That’s exactly what 30-year old Mark Rofe thought, when he put up an ad on the side of a busy road in Manchester, UK. His ad read: “Date Mark. This could be the sign you’ve been waiting for”. 

Curious, I took a trip over to mark’s website, datingmark.co.uk/, and it’s hilarious as you’d imagine. The website contains clever version of a dating apps bio, labeled “...
