Valentines Shmalentines

recently my friend Mary told me that valentines day was named after a priest (Father Valentine) that held secret weddings for couples wanting to get married in a time when marriage was banned, he was found out and killed for his cupid like crimes, before his execution he had written a note for his beloved signed 'from your Valentine' and so St Valentine was given a day devoted to expressing love for the one you love. personally I love Valentines day, its the one day you can be over the top gushy, cheesy and romantic and it's acceptable.
I don't know if it's just me but I've been noticing a lot more dating site adverts too! the theme of love in the calendar is spreading to the telvision advert air time, one of my favourites is the one with the old couple talking about each other and the man says she makes a great cup of tea, aww!
one that i dont like however is the couple that meet in the music shop and sing a little song about what they like. I know these matchmaking scenes arent exactly realistic but come on.
