Top “hugot” phrase you always hear on Valentine’s Day

by | Feature

Feb. 12, 20 | 9:09 pm

Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, but it’s also a season where you’ll hear a lot of people ranting about how exclusive this day could be. You probably have heard one or two of your single friends woofing about this day, uttering words that range from “walang forever” to “gusto ko ng kape na kaya akong ipaglaban.” These are all considered hugot slang, or emerging catch lines that seem deeply rooted from heartbreaking or sad situations.

And since a lot of people active online are single, these hugot lines and slang have found their place on social media. In fact, these single people have become so clever and quirky about how they convey their emotions about this day—and relationships in general—that their slang expressions have become some of the most viral lines circulating online.

The Filipino Times listed some of the most commonly used phrases and lines that single people utter every Valentine’s Day. Check them out!

Walang Forever
This line has been trending perhaps the first time it got uttered on social media. Whenever couples post cheesy stuff online, or act cheesy in person, there is always that one single friend who will jokingly say “Walang Forever.” It’s rooted from the idea that, realistically, nothing lasts forever—even love. Whenever our favorite couples, especially celebrity ones, split up, these two words are the first many of us usually say.

E ‘di kayo na!
Another line we say whenever we see or hear good things about couples. When one gets surprised by her boyfriend on her birthday, when one gets engaged, etc., this line seems like a surrender to the greatness of their relationship. It’s like saying, “good for you,” but in a bitter, sarcastic way.

Hindi ka mahal ‘noon, matulog ka na!
This line seems like a bit of a reality check for people who are single—usually a joke people tell their single friends who are in love with someone who does not feel the same way. This is like saying, “Don’t sacrifice sleep thinking about him/her because it’s pointless.”

Mag-b-break din kayo!
Similar to “Walang Forever,” this phrase is often jokingly said whenever we see couples on romantic escapades and dates on social media. It’s similar to the idea that, “enjoy it while it lasts, because you will eventually call it quits.” It’s a bit dark, don’t you think?

Sana all
Whenever someone does a really romantic surprise or thing for their other half, “Sana all” is becoming the impulse response of single people, and even those who are taken. Unlike the other lines mentioned above, “Sana all,” exudes a vibe of positivity. It’s like having hope and wishing that it happens to all, so everyone will be happy. “Sana all” is fast becoming a favorite line that it has resulted in people quirkily describing themselves online as “taga-sigaw ng ‘Sana all’.”
