What's it going to be for you today?

Here it is Valentine's Day and so many people are lost or in limbo about what to do.

Some are complaining that they have no one special to share it with. Some are upset because like every other holiday, its another occasion to stimulate the economy by purchasing items we don't really need. Still other just haven't figured out what to do with it, how to celebrate it. Well, if you ask me, it all depends on what's on the menu, and usually you'll find that if you get what you wanted, it was well worth the price.

If this day is about love for you, then your rewards are probably spiritual. For those of us whose loves are now angels about, we will spend this day basking in the memories and special times we shared with our significant others, knowing what we had was the real thing and celebrating the fact that we have experienced it. For those who for some reason find themselves recalling people who are no longer serving in that capacity in our lives, you may be feeling conflicted in your emotions. You may feel the loss or regret, pain or hurt, joy or relieved. Try to remember the positives however. You know what it feels like to be there. And you learned enough to perhaps avoid being in that position again. Still the luckiest ones are busy trying to make one more memory about love. Knowing that at some point during this day, one person will bring on a magical feeling because they are getting it back from you.

If romance is on your agenda, you are likely to be spending some money and probably aiming for an emotional satisfaction. Do not confuse this with love...you can definately have romance without having love. What is usually derived from romance is intimacy and the sense of being special expressed from someone else. So lavish gifts, jewelry, fancy dinners and weekend getaways are the usual responses. However, some of the most meaningful are also the least expensive. Sitting by the fireplace, a moonlit stroll, a walk on the beach, a homemade meal by candlelight, poems or cute little notes or a massage and bubble bath are just a few simple, inexpensive ways to convey the same feeling.

But let's face it, some of us just want to get busy. If sex is really all you're after today, there are several ways to go about it. Hopefully you already have a partner or playmate so it isn't that big of a deal. However, for those of us who don't, we do have options. The little black book has many formers that could answer the call. We could put our money where our mouth is for now and in somebody else's pocket later. We could try our luck at any number of websites, bars and phone lines. The main thing is to get our freak on, to get our groove back and hopefully take a step on the wild side.

In the best of all worlds, we would all have the triple threat, a day when the three come together like braided hair. But some of us don't have that luxury. In the real world, many of us don't have any of them. What are we to do? I can't speak for you all, but I know what I'm going to do. I'm going to walk into that all-you-can-eat smorgasbord buffet, get some of everything I see that I like and make repeated trips until I'm satisfied! It may not be the dream, but at least I will have a damn good time!

Now again, what's it going to be for you today? Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!
