there's a good guide here BUT there are some things worth noting

http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=38837.0

1) Don't go to the classic dungeons to look for the bouquet of red roses... they don't drop any more, you need to do the Northrend instances
* Maiden of Grief (Halls of Stone)
* Prince Keleseth (Utgarde Keep)
* Prince Taldaram (Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom)

2) You CANNOT use the bouquet of ebon roses for the other achievements (fistful of love or the flirt with disaster)

3) Carry Cologne AND perfume... some places (Thunderbluff) seem to be rife with cows and no bulls.

4) when you mend someone's heard, Make sure you remove your Friendship buff and you can keep chain mending people, otherwise you need to wait 1 hr for the achievements

5) Guards give the PLEDGES of Adoration, Non guards give the Gifts... you need the Gifts for the achievement

6) you DO need to be inside Naxx to pity the fool there, same for other areas, don't believe people who say you just need to be near the portal

Here's my advice if you have a few hours to kill... the bits underlined you can ignore if you prefer to just go for gifts every hour and then do something else inbetween, it can be a bit tedious.

a) Dalaran -> TB
b) buy loads of tokens and 2 bottles of perfume and 2 bottles of cologne from an innkeeper, use one of them
c) get GIFT from NON guard (i.e. not a bluffwatcher)
d) you're adored now, but go round giving tokens to people with hearts (if they are the wrong gender just spash cologne instead of perfume or vice versa)
e) keep doing it until you have 5 flowers, 5 pledges, and 5 cards, use each of them to get 3 new items
cards come from Bluffwatchers, flowers from non-guards and pledges from both
f) use the 3 new items to get a TB Gift

g) if you're heartbroken you can't hand in gifts, yell for a mend and someone will help you
h) repeat d e & f until you have some mopre TB gifts... I'd recommend 4 in total

i) fly to Org
j) hopefully you're no longer adored, so go get a gift (i.e. NOT from a grunt)
k) repeat d e & f until you have 4 org gifts (cards pledges and pies this time)
l) look for a quest giver near the bank who sends you to UC with a letter

m) Zep to UC
n) repeat j & k until you have 1 gift of adoration and 4 UC gifts (cards pledges and poetry) make sure you get 1 spare guardian's moldy card
o) hand in the org quest from part l)
p) a quest giver will call you and ask for a Guardian's moldy card... you should have this from n... hand in
q) next quest needs a bottle of cologne and perfume, you should have a spare of each on you or go to an innkeeper. Handin
r) go to apothecary quarters- handin... go back to bank - handin... go to magic quarter tailor - handin... get follow up

s) now to hand in the gifts... when you combine an UC TB & Org Gift you get a horde gift... hand this in to the "cupid" in the Royal Chamber near Varimathras. you have a choice of rewards
for other achievements you NEED 10 handfuls of rose petals, at least 10 rockets, and 10 arrows, each gift will only give you 5 of each so hand in your 4 gifts and choose what you need most (i.e. what you didn't get from the gifts of adoration)

t) before you leave UC, drink a load of alochol until you're "completely smashed" apply more perfume if needed, find the cocroach vendor by the bank, and /kiss and then use some petals on him (I don't think the bouquet works... you need a handful of rose petals)
u) pick up another gift of adoration if your buff has gone and then fly to tarren Mill
v) run up to hand in ... don't forget to click the cauldron
there's a map here on the screenshots http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=8984#.
w) hearth to dalaran
x) now loiter around dalaran and you can use your petals on specific class/race combos... use the track function in achievements to make it easier.
y) also look for someone under a parasol... click the picnic hamper
and Shoot 10 people with silver shafted arrows, make sure they don't have non-combat pets with them before you do it!
now find a quiet, un-laggy place to fire off 10 rockets in 20 seconds

You've now completed
Nation of Adoration
Flirt with Disaster
Nearest and Dearest
Fistful of Love
Lonely?
Shafted!
The Rocket's Pink Glare
if you've been mending hearts too you should have done
Heartmender
if you have some chocolate boxes from the gifts the sweet tooth is pretty trivial

that just leaves
Be Mine: hopefully you've also got some bags of candies to create the love hearts... they have 10 charges, good luck, if not then keep trying for gifts of adoration every hour until you comlete it

My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose: go to the dungeons mentioned (HoS, UK, Old Kingdom) to get the ebon roses... UK normal would be the quickest

I Pitied the Fool: this is like a target dummy, and it doesn't need to be yours... when you see one in the relevant location just target it and type /pity
needs to be done in: Wintergrasp, Naxx, AB Blacksmith, Culling of Strat, Battle ring of Gurubashi Arena
That's The REVEREND Dr. Kazza to you.

Thanks for the roundup, DrKazza.

One thing I experienced differently, though:
DrKazza wrote:4) when you mend someone's heard, Make sure you remove your Friendship buff and you can keep chain mending people, otherwise you need to wait 1 hr for the achievements
I never removed the Friendship buff and the achievement is at 16/20 now. I played for roughly 3 hours, in which I used up the rings as soon as I got them. At the start of the session, I already had some unused rings, which went away in the first few minutes of that session.

Another hint for getting rid of a broken heart or using up ones own unused friendship rings: Players with a broken heart drift towards the bank in a capital and are often cured before they can even ask for that boon. So this is also a place to easily spend your unused rings in a very short time.

aaah very wierd.... I used 5 rings and got 1/20 achievement, then i started dispelling and I'm up to about 12.
anyway it's only a right click and unlike the sweets the buff doesn't actually give you anything so if you dispell you're not losing anything


I was however VERY VERY fucked off after flying all the way to pissing dire fucking maul cunting west only to find I didn't have the crescent key and had to suicide to get through the door, and then find out the bitch didn't drop the roses.
That's The REVEREND Dr. Kazza to you.

Loads of people seemed to have trouble with that one, Kaz. Being left with only one candy to get and not getting it.

Achievements involving random chance are bollocks imo. They should require skill or effort, not luck. It's not fair.
