It's February again—it's that time of the year when starry-eyed lovers worldwide celebrate their affection for each other, but who says this holiday is exclusive to couples? Instead of moping on your couch and waiting for a date, make the most of this day by spending it with people you love in the comforts of your own home. Here are some ideas to consider:
