'To suffer love. " This unusual line appears three times in quick order toward the end of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing . Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's fresh, exuberant production illuminates the Bard's theme with a fullness and flourish. Much of Much Ado centers on the unwilling affection building between Beatrice (Eleni Delopoulos) and Benedick (Chance Dean), a proud maid and professed bachelor trading jaded barbs about how they will never marry, especially not each other.

People buy flowers for their sweethearts all year round, but Valentine's Day is the day to go public with love. A simple bunch of daisies will not do. No, for maximum points, a long white box must arrive, a box that can contain only one thing: a dozen roses. Yesterday, Charles F. Kremp 3d Florists of Willow Grove was busy delivering these fragile symbols of love.

Kathy Anne English grew up inspired by the wildlife, landscapes, and people of the Pinelands. "I paint what I'm passionate about. I paint where I am," says the prolific watercolorist, who lives in a woodsy, light-filled home in Mullica Township, Atlantic County. For English, creating a 10th-anniversary poster for Lines on the Pines, a lively annual gathering of authors, artists, musicians, and craftspeople, was a natural. After all, they, too, are inspired by the 1.1 million-acre national reserve, a unique, fragile, and storied landscape that comprises nearly a quarter of the Garden State.

DAN MATHERS remembers the first time he laid eyes on Morgan Quinn - the way the yellow shirt she wore and the waterfall of blond hair spilling onto her shoulders offset her sky-blue eyes. "Yellow shirt. Big, blue eyes," Mathers, 28, of West Chester, recalled with a grin. "Pretty irresistible. " Within seconds, Mathers knew that Quinn, 24, of Berwyn, was something special - and he wanted to let her know. So he swiped his finger to the right, across the glowing touchscreen of his iPhone - a hopeful gesture that would quickly connect him with Quinn on Tinder, a dating app on which she, too, had "swiped right" when she saw his profile pop up on her iPhone.

Falaka Fattah woke up on her 83d birthday, Dec. 28, knowing what she wanted for Valentine's Day: A giant "I Love Philly" party. That's what brought 100 people to LOVE Park on Saturday for four hours of music, some speeches, and a shot of civic self-esteem. Fattah is the cocreator of the House of Umoja, an "urban boys town" that has been operating in West Philadelphia for more than four decades. Partnering with the Mayor's Office of Faith Based Initiatives, Fattah wanted to stage an event that focused on the positives of the City of Brotherly Love.

Hello there One night after work in October 2011, Jason, his buddy Chip, and another friend figured they'd grab a beer at Mike's York Street Bar & Grill in Warminster - Jason's hometown. They were enjoying their beers when two women approached their bar stools. Maggie, a student at Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, had been given an assignment by her introduction-to-communications professor: Invade a stranger's personal space. Write down what happens. Maggie and her friend Stefanie, who came with her for moral support, were looking for that stranger when Stefanie spotted her friend Chip.

Whenever Valentine's Day comes up, the newspaper, TV, and stores are full of heart-shaped candy boxes, roses, and jewelry for "that special someone. " The holiday has become a celebration of romantic love, and that's great if you're in a romance or you're married, which is like having an automatic valentine. But not everyone is so lucky. There are plenty of people who aren't seeing someone right now, which is code for haven't had a date in 55 years. Like me. And that's OK every day except Valentine's Day. Single people feel like losers on Valentine's Day. They're left out of the hearts and candy.

Those who run together stay together, so the saying goes. This year, single runners may meet that way, too. That's the theory behind three events put on by local running stores timed to the Valentine's Day Holiday. "A lot of people run. A lot of people are single. Why not merge the people looking and have them all run together?" asked Liz Pagonis, outreach director for Philly Runner. In Haddonfield on Thursday, runners joined in a new event called the "Running To or From Love Run," an untimed, three-mile run starting and ending at the Haddonfield Running Co.'s downtown store.

If you're a creative romancer, when it comes to Valentine's Day weekend, you'll go beyond the predictable roses and chocolates and 50 Shades of Grey and opt for something singular. Here are some off-the-beaten-track ideas to ponder before you start shouting "red. " "Fin. " This company's name sounds stuffily official, but the Cabaret Administration's performances - by Philly neo-burlesque queens Anna Frangiosa and Christine Fisler - are as intelligently scripted as they are sensually adept.

EROTIC ROMANCE novel Fifty Shades of Grey has sold 100 million books worldwide and been translated into 52 languages since it came out in 2011. But few people around here want to admit to having a copy, it seems. A search for Philadelphia-area superfans on social media did find a few local women, though, who were willing to share their deep love of, among many things: 1) the book's lead characters, (Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele); 2) romance, and 3) handcuffs.

WITH ENOUGH sacrifice and deprivation, nearly everyone can achieve a sixpack. But, is it worth it? Will cut abs deliver lasting happiness? If you crunch your way to a sixpack by next Valentine's Day, will it bring you love? Sorry. The answer is a big fat no. I once had a sixpack for about six hours, and I can tell you that it doesn't bring lasting joy - and doesn't even do much to improve your libido. I'd liken it to the thrill of purchasing a hot pair of shoes: bliss for about 15 minutes, and then the thrill is gone.
