We asked our friends..."What is your ideal Valentines Day like?"

"Going for tea at the St Regis with my husband and then ordering in for dinner later that night. I hate being in a restaurant on Valentine’s Day".

“My ideal valentines date would include a night of live jazz, a great dinner and a nightcap with either great wine or some good tea preferably over a game of chit chat cards so that I learn something new about my love that I didn’t know before.”

“My ideal date would to do something fun together …like a cooking class where we can interact and laugh while making something delicious. Maybe a movie and snuggles after”
Ruby 51- Music Supervisor
“Meet in Grand Central Station on a warm summer day. Grab the shuttle to Times Square and take the 7 train to Willets Point-Citifield. Go to a 4 pm Mets game. Stand in line together at Shake Shack for dinner. High five each other when a Mets player hits a home run. Take the train back to GCT and go to Annie Moore's on 41st for cocktails.”
Lori - Fla - College Professor
"Lol...ok..here goes...morning workout followed by a "spa day" then "Linner" at one of my fave restaurants ...perhaps browse for books in Barnes and and Noble...before or after...end with a walk along the water(Hudson) with views to NYC...ALL without any cellphones...just conversation and laughter".

“My ideal Valentine’s Day is a long hike with my dogs, a hot bath and a 5 star meal prepared by a chef in my home. Oh, and if you want to throw in Drake that’d be ok too”
Kimmy - Stylist - Los Angeles
"My ideal Valentine’s Day would be getting little thoughtful surprises throughout the day, like finding cute handwritten notes in my bag, flowers, and chocolates. Then just a really nice dinner either to one of my favorites or a new place with good reviews."
Devon - 21- Boston
"My husband and I have been married for almost 24 years so needless to say we have shared many Valentine's Days together. Up until a few years ago we spent every single Valentine's Day with my mother in law as her birthday fell february 15th. Sounds like a nightmare right? Well to tell you the truth , I wasn't always so eager of the thought but we always made the best of it and had a good time. Now, in an odd twist , since my mother in law is no longer with us we both miss her and sharing our V day with her."
Teri - Real Estate - Florida
