Ahhh Valentine's Day, a made-up holiday by the greeting card companies and florists! (Kidding!!!!) At any rate, the beautiful rose is a centerpiece of this fine holiday.  Most people know that a single red rose has something to do with love, but how about a dozen? Thirteen? Forty? Ah yes, my romantic grasshopper, the number of roses you send has a meaning, and your friends at 929 NIN are here to tell you what they are:

One rose is meant for early in a relationship, and means love at first sight.

Three roses represents a shared love, and should be a one-month anniversary gift.

Six roses symbolizes passion and infatuation.

Ten roses says you believe your love is PERFECT.

Twelve roses is perfect for Valentine's Day, and means "be mine."

Thirteen roses means you just want to be friends.  (???)

Fifteen roses means you're SORRY.

Twenty-four roses is like SHOUTING "I'm yours."

And forty roses means your love is truly genuine.  And also you have a lot of money.
