    Love is in the air and Valentine's Day is coming, but where should single-tons look for the perfect mate?

    FOX's Ashley Papa has a Valentine's Day special edition of "FOX on Love":

    Picking a Valentine's Day card for your sweetie isn't a "one size fits all" type of purchase. Choose the wrong card and you could end up spending next Valentine's Day alone.

    Professional matchmaker, Samantha Daniels, says you have to pick the Valentine's Day card that matches your relationship:

    (Daniels) "When you're choosing a Valentine's Day card, it's really important to pay attention to where you are in the status of your relationship. You definitely don't want to pick a card that has more serious sentiment than where you are and you also don't want to pick the friends card if you're romantic with the person."

    If you're in a new relationship and stuck on if you should even get a card, Daniels says, yes, but keep it simple:

    (Daniels) "If you just started dating, you're better off picking a card that's maybe funny or cute or sarcastic. Shows that you took time to pick something but it's not over the top in sentiment."

    Daniels says make sure it's clear where you are in the relationship or your uber-gooshy card may scare your love off.
