What does it mean "It’s raining men"? I got this in this paragraph:
Metaphor - Describing something by using a word that isn’t literally relevant. For example, “It’s raining men”, “I’m feeling blue”, or “The weather was bitterly cold”.

In this case the 'not literally relevant' word is raining - rather than men. The phrase comes from the Gloria Gaynor song of the same title and describes a situation in which a single girl might go out and have the opportunity to meet a large number of eligible men. An analogous phrase might be 'it's raining money'.
