A totally evil technique that girls use to hook guys for long-term (as in, "til death do us part" long-term). Unfortunately, it oftentimes works, because being direct freaks the guy out -- unless HE is desperate too -- whereas this method makes the guy want her. Also known as "tantalization", after Tantalus in Greek mythology, although strictly speaking the girl DOES plan to give it up -- but only after a term in purgatory.

Perhaps the most evil aspect of this technique is that if the guy loses it and turns needy or complains to her, she blows him off and looks for somebody else, thereby making it seem like she has been a tease all along.
Erica decided she wanted to marry Tim. Tim liked her and like a shark smelling blood, Erica could tell. But Tim didn't feel like having a girlfriend, which of course for a woman is like waving a red cape in front of the bull (or cow). So she played hard-core hard to get, working him over in ways that would make Machiavelli blush. He couldn't stand it but thought it would be wussy to complain, and that "all girls are like this anyway". Eventually, they ended up married until he died.

The ability to close off your mind from outsiders so that nobody knows what you're really up to or whose side you're on. Men have to train rigorously for this (Severus Snape and Harry Potter being examples of this), whereas women have it built into them naturally.
Occlumency: the reason why most men never see it coming when their girlfriend dumps them.

Severus Snape managed to fool even Voldie until the very end, doing incomparable damage to the Death Eaters' cause.

Not acknowledged as official, but real all the same.
There are de facto countries around the world, such as Transnistria, Northern Cyprus, and Somaliland, which the world community refuses to recognize as real countries, despite having their own governments, flags, military, and so forth.

Ashley and Tim are in a de facto relationship. Even though they claim to be single, they're always together and have been for over a year. Duh...

A river in northern Italy that Julius Caesar crossed, saying "fuck you" to the Roman government at the time.

When a guy crosses the Rubicon with a girl, it is basically the point where it is impossible for them to be just friends. It is the "at bat" portion of the baseball game, and the next step for the guy is to get to first base or strike out. In other words, the guy either ends up in a relationship with the girl, or he fucks it up and they never speak to each other again. But, either way, it's far better than being in the Friend Zone, and crossing the Rubicon with a hot girl is always something to be admired.
Scenario: Tristan crosses the Rubicon with Amber, but Alex and Mark are both in her Friend Zone.

Alex: But she was so nice to us, and we all had such a fun time hanging out, but she ends up fucking Tristan? He was also there the whole time and they never spoke. I thought she hated him!

Mark: Yeah, Tristan's an asshole. But you know, girls like assholes.

If you get a friends request on Facebook and you do not accept or reject it for an extended period of time, even though you log onto Facebook frequently, the interim time period is called Facebook purgatory.

Can be done, for example, if you do not quite know somebody well enough to friend them, but think you will in the future. At least, that's why GUYS do it.

Note that this is not quite the same as Facebook limbo; purgatory is temporary (the person might be cool) and limbo is permanent (and thereby reserved for asshats, douchebags, and so forth). Also, it does not count if the recipient of the friends request only checks Facebook once a month or so, since it was not intentional.
That one girl in Russian class kept me in Facebook purgatory for two months before finally accepting. Slap me silly if I know WHY... I mean, she was talking to me just about every day for the whole damn year...

A part of the afterlife where souls are kept until they are allowed to enter heaven. Catholics (such as Dante Alighieri) believe in this because they think souls need to be clean before they can be allowed into heaven, as opposed to Protestants who believe that accepting Jesus as one's personal savior entitles one to heaven automatically no matter how filthy your soul is.

It is unpleasant and fiery like hell, but the souls there are not like the damned, in that they love God and are already saved. Part of the torment is the waiting. A "term" in purgatory can vary widely in length, from a few minutes to the end of the world, and in intensity, from "just slightly less bad than hell" to simply kept in a waiting room. Like prison, visitations by angels and saints are allowed for some souls.
Purgatory: because your sins have to be burned off.

Purgatory: the final processing.

Purgatory: a very unpleasant place, but at least you age in reverse.

Purgatory: hot time in the celestial big house.

A natural blonde dimepiece, after the nymphs in Harry Potter. The kind with the feminine grace and charm that make you go weak at the knees. The Delacour sisters would of course qualify under this broader epithet, even though they are only partially veela.
"Pesky veelas," Kevin grumbled to himself. He couldn't imagine that Tara and Ashley could be doing anything other than flirting with him to get their jollies.
