What does WYBMV stand for?

Will you be my valentine

When you see WYBMV pop up in a text or chat message, it means someone is asking you to be their Valentine. It stands for ‘Will You Be My Valentine’. It’s a sweet way to ask someone to spend Valentine’s Day with you, usually sent by someone who has feelings for you.

You’re likely to receive a WYBMV message from your significant other (SO), but it could also come from someone who has a crush on you. It’s not just limited to private messages though. You might even see a WYBMV post on social media, especially around Valentine’s Day, from someone looking for a special someone.

If you ever get a WYBMV message, the ball is in your court. You get to decide if you want to be the sender’s Valentine or not. If it’s from your SO, the decision is usually pretty straightforward. But if you’re not interested, you may want to let them down gently to avoid breaking their heart.
