The next highest search term proves something we already knew: Americans are cheesy but not educated in the actual language of love -- poetry.
3. The Bachelor
There's a high percentage of states that don't even care about V-day at all. These people are interested in love, but only the kind that involved reality TV and Googling The Bachelor. Someday, maybe they'll care about their own relationship this much.
