The candy that says, “Happy Valentine’s Day! Welcome to the Friend Zone!”

For more on Valentine’s Day, catch “Guy Code” tomorrow at 11p/10 on MTV2

This is reverse psychology. It looks like a romantic present, but it will actually creep her out so much–because you’ll seem like a clingy, codependent weirdo–that she’s going to reconsider the relationship.

3. Fast Food Dinner

Make your reservations early, because if White Castle runs out of tables, you’ll have to take her to some fancy place she’ll actually appreciate.

4. Divorce Paperwork CD-ROM

For unhappily married guys, try to find this gift discounted for some Valentine’s Day sale. You’ll save a few bucks right before you lose half your net worth.
