V-Day Treats


  • Going The DistanceGoing the Distance is a great romantic comedy that lacks all the ridiculous premises of many  romantic  comedies . It’s about two people in love, with a common dilemma: the long distance relationship. It’s relatable and hilarious.
  • Once is a beautiful movie about two musicians who fall in love. It’s got a lovely soundtrack as well.
  • On Love by Alain de Botton is half fiction, half philosophy. Kant, Plato and Heidegger -- who needs flowers?

Not for the Fanciful

Looking for something a little more practical? John Gottman, founder of the Seattle Marital and Family Institute and a professor of psychology at the University of Washington, wrote The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work . Research-based romance? It beats a Katherine Heigl movie . . .

Not getting into these suggestions? Ah, well – there’s always An Affair to Remember . Sniffles.
