#ValentinesDay Are You Ready?

Tech Tips for lovers and those looking for love.

XOXO! It’s one month out until Valentine’s Day and we’re betting you’ve begun to think about what to get that special someone in your life. #Sweetheart

This year step outside of the box! Forget the flowers and candy, and check out a few of the AT&T newsroom teams do’s and don’ts for February 14th.

First and foremost, use this opportunity to impress your date. PUT DOWN YOUR DEVICE (unless you are sitting by a fire adorably playing Words With Friends against each other). The last thing you want at dinner is to be communicating on your device and not to the person sitting across from you.

If you’re like us, you are constantly on your device throughout the day. How about you give the gift of your focus to your loved one.  Sometimes a little TLC is all your partner needs on Valentine’s Day.

Mashable also has some other thoughts on good things to think about before you make those Valentine’s Day plans, including how best to communicate through tech and appropriate PDA online.

Haven’t been struck by one of cupid’s arrows yet? Try some of the ideas below to find the perfect someone to spend the day with. 

Hinge connects you with other users who are friends with your Facebook friends.  That way you know you each have someone in common.

Zoosk doesn’t have you fill out any questionnaire.  It uses something called a Behavioral Matchmaking engine that uses your behavior and preferences to match you with others.

How About We incorporates user created events into the plan.  Their hope is that you post a date idea, connect with someone you like and go out.

How about we also has an option for couples.  If you are trying to plan out that perfect date, you can enter in your name, your significant other’s name and the site will generate some date ideas in your area.

Whatever your plans for V-Day may be, we hope it’s filled with lots of #Love and #XOXO.
