Good plans, bad plans, we got it all all this Valentine's Day & the Amazing Kreskin.

It's President's Day Valentine's Day weekend and it's time to put up or shut up (or just make V-Day happen). Watch: 5 Worst Valentine's Day Gifts

First up, our buddies at The Frisky (specifically Judy McGuire, whose photo I giggle at every time) has a step-by-step guide on how to have a miserable Valentine's Day as a singleton. My advice, pull a Costanza and aim for the opposite (that may have be the point, subtlety isn't a strong suit of mine). 

 

The crew at LimeLife.com has a single suggestion for a V-Day gift for him: sex and plenty of it. I can't argue with that, it's good for what ails ya.

The blokes at VerySmartBrothas are on the same track as LimeLife, free Valentine's Days are the best kind. They break down 1-2-3-4-5 options for a cheap V-Day. I suppose all of these programs are assumed to end in basically free sex. Read: Valentine's Day Gifts Decoder

Divine Caroline, on the theme of bad V-Day ideas, gives you a rundown of 7, I repeat 7, big Valentine's Day don'ts. I have a bone to pick with the very first item. 

That "bone" is why I've included this little mamasita from Cosmopolitan: how to have a great blind date. Seriously, why NOT have a first date on THE MOST ROMANTIC DAY OF THE YEAR?

Betty Confidential gives you the ins and the outs of making your dollar stretch on Valentine's Day flowers. Evidently, "waiting until the 15th when everything is on sale" is gauche. 

Because times are tough, a heart-shaped necklace may not be in the cards, Em & Lo (EmAndLo.com) suggest making a list of why you like your special someone. The questions "Why do you like me?" and "What do you love about me?" are prett-y loaded; Em & Lo give the tips on how to do it seamlessly.  (PS: Buy their DVD, Sex: How To Do Everything.)
