With so much activity and everyone wanting to profess their love for their significant other on Valentine's Day, there's a slim chance you might not be able to get into your favorite restaurants if you haven't already made your reservation. Yes, you could go to that place with the golden arches and dollar menu, but if you've been in a long term relationship, what does that say about how much you love your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend? And if you're in a new relationship, that definitely does not scream "I care about you" let alone "I Love you"!
Single folks, who says you can't celebrate as well? Love isn't always reserved for your beau. What about your besties? They are always there for you when you need them. Maybe the week of Valentine's Day is a good time to share the love with them as well?
So if you haven't made your plans for the 14th or are working that evening, why not pick up a gift or do some shopping before the big day, then shoot for Friday night, February 16th for dinner? Then you can celebrate longer and get in quicker to most restaurants.
