Saturday is Valentine’s Day. For couples, this means chocolates, birds chirping “La Vie en Rose” and an explosion of heart-shaped confetti. If you’re single, it means burrowing under your covers with Netflix and a bottle of wine, waiting for February 15 to roll around.

Whatever category you fall under, our favorite octogenarian sex therapist — Dr. Ruth Westheimer — has some advice on how to make the most of this most wonderful/awful of holidays.

For the person planning “Singles’ Awareness Day.”

For the ones just dying to see “50 Shades of Grey.”

For those who can’t be bothered to leave the house.

For the more gluttonous among you.

For those who just can’t unplug — you won’t score if you check the score.

For the ones tired of singing along to Beyonce.
