Valentine's Day is closer than you think and if you're one of those couples who make reservations and go out to eat dinner on V-Day, you're braver than I am. Going out to eat dinner on Valentine's Day is kind of like waiting until Christmas Eve day to get your kid's pictures taken with Santa. There is going to be a huge wait for a seat, everyone is trying to get it done because the day is about to pass, and no one is having any fun because there is someone looking over their shoulder waiting for them to wrap it up.

If you go out, chances are you're going to run into these couples:

1. The 'We Both Worked Today And I Want A Pizza But She Made Me Take Her Out' Couple - He wants to skip the appetizer and dessert so they can get home, but she wants the only item on the menu that takes forty minutes to prepare. Now nobody is talking, he's thinking about the presentation he needs to finish up and she's thinking 'I shaved my legs for this?'

2. The 'They're So Happy They Make Everyone Else In The Place Sick' Couple - Newlyweds or been together forever, this couple is holding hands and having a great time. Everyone else wants to pelt them with dinner rolls and little coffee creamer containers because they are so danged adorable.
