Today is Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Satellite Internet compiled Google searches that reveal the top Valentine’s Day searches in every state, and the responses are very telling. 

Ohio’s most-searched is the restaurant Red Lobster, which could pose to be a great date place to celebrate the romantic holiday. The closest Red Lobster to Athens is in Parkersburg.

Some of the more laughable responses are “Venereal Disease” in Arizona, “Hooters” in Louisiana, “Brazilian Waxing” in Utah and the more relatable “Broken Heart Syndrome” in Kansas. 

Among the most common were various restaurant searches, dirty valentines and Edible Arrangements. 

It looks like there are very diverse ideas about what Valentine’s Day calls for around the country.
