Whether you are into Valentine's Day or not, we can all appreciate the need to express our love for someone or something. With the big day looming, many folks are busy buying sweet chocolates and sappy cards for the objects of their affection. Here at the Fool, we've got other preparations under way for Valentine's Day.

Our writers and analysts love lots of things. Last year, to celebrate this romantic holiday, we ran a series on Fools' First Loves -- stocks that our writers stared at longingly before purchasing, such as Disney (NYSE:DIS), Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), and FormFactor (NASDAQ:FORM). But this year, we decided to add a new twist. Instead of focusing on first loves, we decided to focus on all of our financial loves. Whether it's a heart-stopping company, a type of investing or account, or a person somehow related to the world of investing and finance, the possibilities are virtually endless. And we suspect that many of our readers will share our passion for some of these choices.

So go ahead and browse through our motley collection of Foolish loves. We're serenading a broad range of companies, from blue-chip behemoth GE (NYSE:GE) and computer mastermind IBM (NYSE:IBM) to entertainment providers such as game creator extraordinaire Activision (NASDAQ:ATVI) and DVD maker Dolby Labs (NYSE:DLB). We'll also whisper our sweet nothings to assorted financial topics such as online savings accounts, Roth 401(k)s, index funds, and growth stocks.

Please join us in declaring your love this Valentine's Day. Come on, don't be shy. Get yourself started by picking from the list below.
