On Twitter Bynes posted that she spent Valentine's Day alone. "I just want a person who can see me with all my flaws and still love me," she had told Cosmopolitan last year. "I want someone who'll be there and who I can trust--that's really important to me." But Amanda is no hurry to get married as this tweet shows: "I want to be a mom but not til I'm 30 and even if I get married b4 (before) then I still want to wait to have kids til long after I'm married. (Because) children are a lot of freakin work and I can't deal with that til I'm AT LEAST 30 :)"

The other two blondes in the pic are Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. Some of Amanda's tweets are less controversial and more philosophical: "Love is like a puzzle. When ur in love, all the pieces fit but when ur heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together." Another tweet from Bynes reads: "Negative emotions cause erratic patterns called heart rhythm incoherence, which has a damaging effect on your body."
Good to see that one thing that hasn't changed too much with Amanda Bynes is her healthy body. Obviously she's paying attention to her fitness and diet. 5'8" Amanda Bynes says that of the ideal Valentine's Day gifts: "I like jewelry, because it's forever. Flowers die, chocolates get eaten, and lingerie eventually gets worn out in the wash."
