Now today's Unger report. The Valentine's Day clock is ticking down friends. Supplies of roses and chocolate / hearts, and restaurant reservations. All these are dwindling1. And here to help with none of it ,is Brian Unger.

Tomorrow is the one day of the year in which couples in love are required by Hallmark (gift, card retailer) to say to one another: yes, it's true. I actually do love you. Here is a card, some flowers. Let's go eat a steak in the shape of a heart. This simple restorative ritual suspends for just one day the fear that we've wound up with the completely wrong person. But for far too long, boyfriends, girlfriends and married people have had a stranglehold on Valentine's Day. It's as if Hallmark's high holiday has been reserved for only the in-love. A day of consummation, not communion. Because if you are not sharing a bed, you are not welcome.

In 2006, isn't it time to allow everyone to participate in the Valentine tradition. To say: hey, I love you. But not in that way. Because for many, best friends are spouses3, family are most cherished love ones and yet for best friends, there is no holiday celebrating their partnership4 and how deeply they care for each other. None bed sharers make tomorrow your day to tell someone you don't love in that way that you love them. Here is how to say it without them freaking out.

Guys, you can't give your best friends chocolates or flowers. Instead, for Valentine's Day, get his car detailed5. You know how we likes it. Or give him a card that says: hey, I love your tie. But at somewhere, hope my girlfriend gets me one just like it. Men can also give a buddy6 of the office a Valentine greeting. He'll never hear from his girlfriend or wife. I love your work. Happy Valentine's Day. As a more daring gesture, gentlemen, a bit of the bar goes a long way. Roses are red, violets are blue. Hey, I'm not gay, but dude, I love you.

Ladies, there is always putting pen to paper with those three little words every woman loves to hear: your shoes rock. Or still, even more affectionate without any sexual overtones: Oh my god, I love your hair.

On Valentine's Day, tell her something she'll never hear from a guy. Like, hey, let's get a map or you were right.

Send your boss a Valentine. Send your letter-carrier a Valentine or soldier heck ,send the president a Valentine that says, I love you, sir, for not eavesdropping7 on me. This Valentine's Day let your voice be heard. Even if you have no Valentine, no friends, let alone a spouse2, aim Cupid's arrow at anyone. It might feel strange but it'll hurt less than a chest full of birdshot.

And that is today's Unger report, I'm Brian Unger. I love you, Alex.
