Did Valentine's Day "sneak up" on you this year? It's easy to let that happen. There's Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. To make matters worse, Mardi Gras is early this year, with Valentine's Day falling on Ash Wednesday. Without delving deeply into my personal life, I was unattached for many years. Folks tell me dining out on Valentine's Day is more trouble than it's worth. My significant other decided we'll go to dinner the following night. If you've found yourself without plans, here are some last minute suggestions from Elite Daily.

#1 Have a leisurely picnic.

#2 Cook dinner together

#3 Take a scenic bike ride

#4 Share massages

#5 Play hooky from work. I considered this one, but I know I wouldn't get away with it.
