Valentine’s Day Lexicon fun
n. an irrational fear of Valentine’s Day.
blue bawls
n. an emotional, romantic version of flirting that leaves you feeling sad
and crying.
bud light
n. the blatantly cheap flower selection from a guy who
needs to be dumped ASAP. (How was your V-Day? Bud light.)
n. a girl who puts out for carnations.
adj. as in, if I don’t see a ring today, he’s dead to
long-stem posers
n. people who send themselves flowers from a
“secret admirer.”
v. to walk the thin line between love and hate. (I lote Johnny.
One day he’s a dollface; the next he’s a total wanker.)
ménage à flaws
n. when you crash your friend’s Valentine’s Day date
only to talk about all your relationships gone wrong.
n. public display of rejection: when your valentine takes you
somewhere lovely only to break your heart in front of strangers.
Valentiny Tim
n. a man whose masculinity is put in question by his
overenthusiasm for V-Day. (I mean, I don’t expect him to be a Valentiny Tim, but
he could at least try to hide his total amoraphobia.)
n. A once-single woman who traditionally swears off
the holiday but is now happily coupled off and suddenly all about hearts, roses,
and luuuv …

n. A cop-out gifter. (“Good old George. He’s a total
candy-boxer, but I still love him.”)
cryday the 13th
n. The day before Valentine’s Day if you don’t have a boy/girlfriend.
