If we're being totally honest, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) has had some detours on the trail of love—he's been married a whopping four times. But that doesn't mean he still can't turn on the charm!

Take a look at Gibbs' swoon-inducing moves in "Beastmaster" (Episode 22, Season 14).

Seize the moment!

Let's face it—there's nothing more romantic than wedding bells! While you may not necessarily want to tie the knot on V-Day, there's still plenty of inspiration to be found in McGee (Sean Murray) and Delilah's (Margo Harshman) nuptials.

In the episode "Something Blue" (Episode 23, Season 14), a BIG surprise changed both of their futures—but they also seized the moment and took control of their own destinies.
Discretion is advised.

5. Discretion is advised.

We understand that interoffice romances happen—despite Gibbs' disapproval of them (Rule #12!). Sometimes you need to act a little differently in public than you would in private.

Of course, Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) have shown us a thing or two about keeping up appearances with their undercover mission in "High Tide" (Episode 11, Season 15).

Whether you call a loved one "darling," or make a fun play on a co-worker's name, a la "McCherub," your creativity will surely bring out a few smiles.

Not everyone loves Valentine's Day, but we're pretty sure most people love a cute poem—especially when it comes in an adorable card. If you need some writing inspiration, here's a poem Abby once wrote for Bishop:
"Roses are red, 
They go in a bucket,
Jake is a jerk, 
He can go suck it."
Be thankful for your co-worker's homemade goodies—even if they're made of tofu.

Not all treats will leave you with a sweet taste in your mouth. For the sake of your friend's feelings, fake a smile and say "thank you" anyway. 
Deck out your office.

Break away from the norm and add a little Valentine's Day flair to your workspace. Not into pink doilies? That's totally fine. Take another tip from Abby, and punk up your space with red, black, and cute little critter decorations (well... bats, in her case).
Go the extra mile to make someone's day.

Spending Valentine's Day without a significant other doesn't have to be sad. In fact, you can help ensure that your single friends will have a night rivaling any other date they've ever had. Treat them to a scrumptious meal or send them to a basketball game.

Don't have that kind of cash? Throw a movie night or go out for coffee. After all, it's the thought that really counts.
