Valentine's Day used to be a wonderful time in the heady days before romance entered into its sordid relationship with Big Business.Back then a man could dash into a drug store after work and pick up a sappy Hallmark card and cheap box of candy, and be relatively certain that the woman in his life would just about turn cartwheels at this incredible thoughtfulness.Then, I don't know . . . something happened.Suddenly, it wasn't enough to burst into a Rite-Aid 10 minutes before closing time and bark at the startled Whitesnake freak with the nose ring behind the register: "The little, y'know, chocolates in the, uh, sampler thing . . . YOU GOT ANYMORE OF THEM?

C On the day after Valentine's Day, it's the thought that doesn't count.No matter what you buy, the fact is, the gift is a day late. And if you give the wrong gift even if it's on the right day, you're still in trouble.Greg Rogers, a 42-year-old sales manager from Kent Island, had this idea. Call it impulsive, romantic -- and ultimately useless. On Valentine's Day night, he suggested to his wife that they fly to Florida for a long weekend. Forget the flowers and candy. Think sunshine, honey.

SOME PEOPLE, I am told, book tables months in advance for romantic Valentine's Day dinners in dark restaurants.Some home cooks, I have read, plan elaborate Valentine's Day seduction dinners that begin with raw oysters and end, more or less, with souffles.Just the other day I learned that the hot item this Valentine's Day is chocolate body paint. You call up an 800 number, and order an 8-ounce jar of sweet milk chocolate and a brush.Such Valentine's Day doings are fascinating, but foreign to me. I feel pleased with myself if I remember before sundown Feb. 14th that the day is Valentine's Day.I find Valentine's Day a slippery, hard-to-keep-track of holiday.

PSSST. Hey, Susan. Wanna know what Valentine's Day is all about for men?I'll tell you what it's all about: pressure.As the big day approaches, a man gets this jittery feeling in his gut, like he did before the SATs back in high school.And all these thoughts start racing through his mind.Did I get her the right gift?Is it enough?Is it sexy?Is it too sexy?What about the card? Does it say what I want to say?What do I want to say?Men go nuts trying to figure this stuff out, Susan.Honest. You may think all we do this time of year is lay on the couch with the remote and a bowl of Doritos watching David Duvall in theBuick Invitational.

Gentlemen, we'll start this column by stating our major premise: Valentine's Day is important. Not to you, maybe. But to your spouse, girlfriend, significant other or some person who's not in one of those categories yet but could be someday if you're smart and lucky enough, Valentine's Day is a National Holiday, big time. To half the human species, it's the day that the other half has to prove that it's sensitive, caring and affectionate enough to be considered worthy of the first half's notice during the other 364 days of the year.

In the mood for love If you're planning to celebrate Valentine's Day with your loved one at home, here are suggestions from Nextdaygourmet.com for making a romantic meal: Set the table by a fireplace or a window with a view. Use candles and fresh edible flowers to decorate the table. If you really want to splurge, buy a mold to create a tabletop ice sculpture for $56. Set the chairs side by side to give you the chance to get close with your valentine. Keep the food light; stick to tender, lean meats and avoid heavy pastas.

Love it or loathe it, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Step into any card shop or drugstore, and you won't be able to avoid the rows of heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, the miles of red and pink cards and the many soft and cuddly stuffed animals smiling back at you. The day, of course, is mainly for lovers, but it does see its share of popularity among other segments of the population, including friends, children / parents, teachers / students, classmates...
