(NewsUSA) - Valentine's Day, the most romantic day of the year, remains the day to express heartfelt gratitude for companionship, friendship and love. It also can be an occasion that will create fond memories for years to come.
No romance without finance is an adage that some live by. And if you are like most people when you think of romance, you think money and lots of it. The Beatles may have sung "Money Can't Buy Me Love," but it sure helps make a downpayment. Ian Stanczyk, a probability expert, estimates that the average date costs $250. The actual cost of the date is about $130 but he included the cost for one's time because, after all, time is money.
Valentines Day is a day full of romance and spoiling your partner with guilty pleasures. But according to cardiologists at Mayo Clinic, some of those guilty pleasures don't have to make you feel quite so guilty. "We do know that real dark chocolate has some protective effects on the heart and that it's not harmful," says Carolyn Landolfo, M.D., a Mayo Clinic cardiologist. She suggests skipping the milk chocolate and sticking to dark to really get those protective effects.
