Be Mine, Valentine: Looking to TV’s Best Couples

If this Valentine’s Day isn’t particularly special for you, no worries. Why let one day of the year dictate how you treat your significant other? There are other days that you genuinely feel love for him or her, right? ( . . . Right?) And no one says you won’t be currently working through a disagreement of some kind when February 14th rolls around.

The idea I want you to get is that I’m a pot-bellied couch potato who leaves the sofa only to roll my way to the fridge for another double-shot espresso and a tub of pistachio gelato. Just kidding. Maybe. But honestly, I do spend more time staring at the television than doing anything else. Pathetic? Probably. Do I care? Probably not as much as I should.
