10 ways to deal with "Ex Season".

I've always referred to February as "Ex Season." Blame it on the chill in the air, the sudden realization that everyone's brothers/sisters/cousins all required extra seats at the table to make room for their significant others over the holidays, or plain seasonal horniness, but exes begin surfacing left and right when Valentine's Day rolls around.

Suddenly your high school boyfriend is wondering how you've been. That dude you kissed last New Year's Eve (mainly out of desperation)? He's super interested in that new job of yours! And of course we can't forget your on-again-off-again hometown hookup buddy.

Whatever your ex's Valentine's booty call tactic may be, we're here to keep you from texting him back. We've rounded up some of the most romantic movie scenes of all time (if we do say so ourselves).

Re-gift him to a friend and snuggle up with one of these more predictable on-screen couples, and leave the awkwardness to someone less fortunate. You can thank us later ... with cookies, preferably.
