Has cupid struck this year? Or has he struck out? Well, depending on your particular level of commitment or lonesome despair, here are a few things you might enjoy doing this Valentine's Day. All events are on February 14th, which as fate would have it falls on a nice, low key Sunday. You could always just go to church, you know?
Taken: You and your significant other have been seeing each other for some time, so isn't it time you saw something else, like a nice view? Peruse this list of romantic destinations with views we've compiled for this and all similar occasions.
Taken and Naked: Enjoy some couple's nudity on Sunday at the spa with a Valentine's Day special. Archimedes Banya, which offers a love birds' special, are also among SFist's 11 best spas, a list you might want to consult in general for your spa day needs.

Somewhat Taken: Your best chance at taking this romance to the next level? Exactly! I was thinking the same thing!

Uncomfortably Sober and Alone: We can fix half of this right away with SFist's list of the city's best dive bars. Tell 'em we sent you, and expect a gruff nod and/or a quizzical look. That's the sign we worked out with them in advance.
