Valentine's Day

Another Valentine's day... and like many other years Nobody loves me.
It is not only that. Actually, Everybody loves me, too, but I'd rather Somebody.


somebody: "Who is Somebody?"
me: "everybody but Everybody."

PS:. Inspired by the story of Odyssey.


... telling the Cyclops (Polyphemus) that his name is "Nobody", then escaping after blinding Polyphemus. When queried by other Cyclopes about why he is screaming, Polyphemus replies that "Nobody" is hurting him, and with that, it sounds as if nobody is hurting him.

Somebody loves Zzyzx, and she doesn't love Anybody. So she may also love Somebody. But due to English grammar rules Somebody knows that she cannot say "I don't love Somebody" so Somebody would never know her exact opinion about himself and would not propose.

Solutions:
1. Somebody can go ahead and propose without thinking about Zzyzx's opinion.
2. Zzyzx can ignore Somebody and love Nobody instead.

(1) doesn't work because she would not accept the proposal knowing that he doesn't care her opinion.
Hence, (2) is the only solution.
