Life used to be "like a box of chocolates," according to Forrest Gump. Now it's like a box of bullets. And you do know what you're going to get. Duck and cover, America! Valentine's Day, once a cultural oasis of sentimentality, is the opening date for A Good Day to Die Hard . No, it's not about the amorous demise of Nelson Rockefeller. It's the fifth in the series of Bruce Willis action flicks, full of gunfire and explosions, this time set in Moscow.

Tiffany Burnhill was mixed up with a bad seed, a former college basketball player whose claim to fame was that he was featured on "America's Most Wanted. " It's unclear if Burnhill knew what she was getting into when she started dating Shaun Warrick, who was accused of randomly shooting two Maryland college students and stabbing a third in 2007. What is clear, police said yesterday, is that Warrick allegedly shot and killed Burnhill, 19, and her cousin, Marcedes Ivery, 21, on Valentine's Day after he flew into a rage over an ongoing spat.

NO SWEET love and kisses here. Cops woke up 22 fugitives Thursday morning with hand shackles and a ride to jail. In their 16th annual, predawn Valentine's Day warrant sweep, more than 50 cops fanned out across Philadelphia and its surrounding counties in search of about 300 fugitives wanted on warrants for offenses big and small. They caught 22 of them in the five-hour sweep and hauled them in to Family Court for processing. "I'm an Afghanistan veteran. Thanks, America!" a shackled fugitive barked at reporters on his way into the courthouse.

Question: I was sent home early from a work trip with the flu. I got home around 1 a.m. and texted my boyfriend to let him know. I didn't hear back from him till around noon the next day, when I chatted with him online. He asked if I needed anything, and I said I'd really love sherbet and tissues, but I can manage without. Later, I find out that he's not going to come see me because I don't "need" anything. I realize he's not my mom, but we've been dating two years and all I want is to feel like someone cares enough to take care of me. In his defense, he said he had a meeting that evening, but it turns out he got the day wrong and there was no meeting.

Q: I'm a senior in college and dating a guy who admits to having fooled around sexually with his guy friends. Nothing serious from what I can tell, but when he was in high school, he participated in some sort of circle ritual. I won't share with you what he did, but I will say it was weird. He also made out with his roommate once or twice. That was a long time ago. He says he's in love with me, and I love him back. My friends say I'm unrealistic to think there could be a future with him. But doesn't true love conquer all?

Valentine's Day is upon us, and if you're single, you know what that means. Depression, shame, and chocolate cake. I'm not saying you should feel that way. I'm just saying you might, if you're single, divorced, a widower, or a widow. And if you do, I have a few words on the subject. But before I begin, I have to admit that I've had more than a few Valentine's Days by myself, so much so that I've even written about it several times already. Top that for pathetic. You can't.

Too wide for a plane seat? Is filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) a victim of size and weight discrimination? The Zack and Miri Make a Porno director has accused Southwest Airlines of ejecting him from a flight Saturday night because of his girth, says the Los Angeles Times. "Wanna tell me I'm too wide for the sky?" Smith said in a scathing message on his Twitter account. "Totally cool, but fair warning folks: If you look like me, you may be ejected from Southwest Air. " Smith said the incident occurred when he tried to board a flight from Oakland to Burbank, Calif.

By B.G. Kelley The spirit of springtime will be reborn this weekend as the Pennsylvania Convention Center opens its doors to the famous Philadelphia Flower Show. A civic treasure for 184 years, the Flower Show, with its dogwoods, cherry blossoms, daffodils, orchids, and more, sets in motion the seasonal rhythms of planting and gardening for green-thumb enthusiasts. I've been going to the show, on and off, for 40 years, and each time the overriding message never eludes me: Flowers bring a promise of renewal to our lives.

POSTELECTION pollsters with excess time on their hands sampled moviegoers to see which film they'd prefer to attend on Valentine's Day. "A Good Day to Die Hard" was the clear winner, capturing a 68 percent share, although "Safe Haven" with Josh Duhamel was the clear favorite among women. Date night may be problematic. Women might argue that "Die Hard" is not suited to Valentine's Day, men might counter that "Die Hard" started out as a holiday affair - the original was very much a Christmas movie.

Buzz: I forgot to get my wife a present for Valentine's Day. What could I pick up at the store that could save my bacon? Marnie: Wine always makes a nice gift, and there are some styles that evoke romance, like sparkling wines, sweet wines and pink wines. Buzz: Great! I don't want to spend the weekend in the doghouse, but I don't want to spend too much on a bottle, either. Marnie: No problem. Classy French Champagne and fancy dessert wines may be unavoidably pricey, but there are plenty of options that sell for less.

AVOID HEARTACHE on Valentine's Day - and every day - by following Steve and Mia's Rules of Romance: 1. Never date someone who has more problems than you do. 2. Never date a co-worker. If things go bad - and they usually do - you foul up not only your social life, but your work life, too. 3. Never date anyone who already has a boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife. 4. While there are exceptions, when beginning a relationship, assume that what's attracting the man is sex and what's attracting the woman is money or power.

DEAR ABBY: Valentine's Day is approaching, and I wanted to write concerning those of us who are single by choice, by circumstance, because of the death of a spouse or following divorce. This holiday was set aside to celebrate love and lovers, but it can be a lonely time for people who find themselves without a significant other. Valentine's Day is so commercialized that one is bombarded by ads for gifts and candy from every angle, which only enforces one's aloneness. The message is subtly sent - but received loud and clear - that an individual without a partner is worthless.

On New Year's Day last year, Melinda Ann Hill made a resolution: Become more social with her running. She did that, and with a dash of romance mixed in, by signing up for the Philadelphia Runner's Valentine's Day Singles Fun Run, a three-miler that will take place on - yup - Feb. 14. "It seemed like the perfect opportunity to meet other single runners," said Hill, 41, of Wynnewood. This is the third annual Valentine's event for the Philadelphia Runner, a store with locations in Center City, University City, and Glen Mills.
