What Your Fave V-Day Candy Says About You

OK, New Years has passed, it's officially Valentine's Day at your local pharmacy and in all of your intrusive ad suggestions. Get ready, because whether you like it or not, the next month-and-a-half of your life will be flooded with Valentine's posts on your newsfeed and the panic of how you'll spend that 14th of February will start to set in.

But it's still early, so don't worry about the big questions like, will you have a date? Will your partner royally screw up? Will your partner propose? Will you eat yourself to death on the couch? Who will be there to give you CPR after you involuntarily suck a chocolate covered cherry down the wrong pipe? What could my partner do for me that would make my friends jealous at brunch the next day? Should this be the year I buy myself a Rabbit?

For now, just focus on the mindless stuff, like the fact that it will be overwhelmingly simple for you to find amazing deals on mass quantities of chocolate over the next few weeks and the fact that all of your favorite rom-coms will be playing on TV non-stop and the fact that it's totally OK to re-watch the Twilight series now. And, of course, focus on this very important and informative psychological breakdown based on your V-Day candy preference. Explanations are based on conclusive results cultivated in a diet and psychology lab in Switzerland. (This is not true.) Enjoy.


You're old school and get straight to the point with all things. You like the nostalgic aspect of V-Day, and in your relationships, you like your partner to behave like a class act. You love celebrating annual anniversaries and probably make up a few anniversaries of your own. First kiss, first time you said "I love you," first time you ate pizza together in bed after sex. In general, you probably are most comfortable going by the books. You're not one to change a good thing. Your friends might call you vanilla, but you probably secretly think they're all a little nuts.

Cinnamon Hearts

You thrive in extremes. In your relationships, you don't mind a heated argument here or there — in fact, you might stir them up to get a rise out of your partner every now and then. You expect your V-Day to be exciting and passionate. You might use the day to try something new in bed or make a big stink if you're underwhelmed with your treatment. You do you — it's good to know what you want.

Assorted Truffles

You're a bit of a traditionalist and you don't like surprises. You're a very gracious person, but you like to know what's coming. This might mean that you're the planner in your group and the compass in your relationship. And while you might be a stickler for holding on to traditions, you're far from boring. In fact, your personal taste is more vast and varied than people might give you credit for.

Chocolate-Covered Fruit

You know what you like and you're not that interested in what anyone else has to say about that. Your ideal V-Day is probably spent romancing yourself at home alone... because no one can do it better than you. You take the whole "you do you, girl" saying to the next level.

Dark Chocolate

You're a deeply emotional and sensitive person. Love is like air for you, and when you're in a relationship the rest of the world slips away. And while it might appear that you give every bit of love you have away, you're actually a secretly private person. You have lots of discrete rituals and tendencies that no one knows about. You need that duality in order to stay balanced.


You're used to getting what you want out of life. You know how to work the system, and you have a pretty sexy, confident attitude in and out of the bedroom. You like to look good and show off your sexual power. Some might call you an alpha woman.

Peanut-Butter Filled Anything

You're a homebody. You like to be comfortable at all times. Drake really gave you hope with those "Sweatpants, hair tied, chillin' with no makeup on. That's when you're the prettiest," lyrics. While you love the comfort a relationship can bring you, you're totally cool eating a giant Reese's heart at home on the couch with your friends. In fact, you're probably your happiest crying over Bridget Jones.
