WHETHER you are counting down the days or couldn't care less, there is no avoiding Valentine's Day on Thursday.

With pink and red hearts and flowers piled in shop windows, and restaurants vying for couples' custom, the most romantic day of the year is upon us. 

We would love to hear special Valentine's Day stories from Oxfordshire - or even anti-Valentine's stories - be it memories of a previous year or big plans for this week.

We are looking for funny, romantic or unusual tales to bring a smile to our readers' faces.

Perhaps you proposed to a partner in an outlandish way, or made a particularly eccentric public display of affection.

At the other end of the scale, maybe there was a nightmare date or break-up that you can now laugh about.
