I don't do chick flicks, but at some point, I caught this and I thought this was a really good romantic (though a little sad) movie.

When a Husband dies, 'he' sends letters to his wife to help her cope with his passing. It's sort of a treasure hunt in a way and an adventure!

 

Valentine videos - for all

whether you're a romantic or an Anti'tine I've tried to include it all here..(esp. if the word Valentine is in it) but sadly due to new guidelines... I've had to pull back on the list.

Leap Year

When in Rome

P.S. I love you (as noted above)

Love Potion #9 (stars Sandra Bullock)


(unfortunately, I can't find enough 'anti-tine related movies :-( help me out)

There's My Bloody Valentine (The original) not the one with Jansen Ackles)

Date IDEA #2

You don't have to go out to 'go out'

If you have a patio, set up the table with 2 taper candles maybe some rose petals

make the dinner yourself, maybe you can even have a friend help you out and serve the 2 of you.

I think bowling is great for a first date.

Its a great icebreaker & it helps you both to be relaxed.

Billiards

I like playing pool as well

This is the same idea for the bowling

however this one makes you think

also for either one.. if oen of you does not know how to play get closer to teach the other

Dress Appropriately- No skirts or heels. (trust me on that)

The Song

Lyrics

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Selling little bottles of love potion number nine

I told her that I was a flop with chics
I've been this way since 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said "What you need is love potion number nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine

He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine
Love potion number nine
Love Potion number nine
Love Potion number nine

The Semi-Valentine

LOVELY SCENTS - are these the TRUE Love Potions?

Some scents are warm & sensual these are a few I can think of. Ladies put these on your pulse points (esp. The ylang ylang & the guys will go wild) but remember if they don't not my fault as our body chemistries are different so try them out and try othes let me know what's worked for you!

As for the guys... Well The only suggestion I have for you is the Cologne COOL WATER (I have litterally Almost attacked a couple guys wearing it) also There's a Chrome scent & a calvin Klein one that were very for lack of a better term 'Baiting'


  • Ylang Ylang (sensual)
  • Jasmine
  • Roses
  • (warm) Vanilla
  • Sugar Cookie (guilty pleasure)
