It's a little late, but I enjoyed this mix of love and science. (I also enjoyed the World of Warcraft reference. Eric introduced Michelle to WOW on Tuesday. She loves it. I sent her character a kitten.) There was also this somewhat more serious study on love. And the Yarn Harlot has posted a good essay on the subject as well. All these sources say that romantic love is not really the end-all and be-all, despite what retailers say.
And me? I say Valentine's Day is a fraud. I am crushed. I am desolate. We went shopping for Valentine's Day candy last night and found it was only discounted by 20%. What madness is this?
