Nonetheless, spending Valentine’s Day with anybody you love, doing something that means a lot to you both is always a day to remember. Unless you’ve been completely unfortunate to have a day you’d much rather forget and if you think yours was bad, how about some sympathy for these people?
Romantic dinner turns disaster...
“My boyfriend wanted to cook me a romantic dinner, so he went to the trouble of finding a recipe, shopping and cooking for me at his apartment. He chose to cook chicken and stuff it with loads of vegetables and cheese. Well, apparently he doesn't know about SALMONELLA. After dinner he was complaining that he wasn't feeling well, and asked if I felt OK. I felt great! I didn't lift a finger to cook! He spent our romantic Valentine's night puking in the bathroom until about 4 a.m., and then, the whole next day in bed."
“A new guy surprised me by planning the perfect Valentine's Day date: a romantic dinner followed by fireworks show on the beach. Everything was great until the check arrived. He asked me, "Should we split it or do you just want to pay for your meal?" After dinner we took a walk on the pier. He bumped into a girl, who was obviously his ex-girlfriend, and after talking and laughing for about 20 minutes without including me he finally said, "Oh sorry, this is my friend, Kat." We broke up the next day.”
I blame the cat
“My college boyfriend gets his buddy to let us use his parents' fancy New York apartment while they're out of town. So we make dinner, get naked and start rolling around on the floor.
But this friend's parents have cats and I'm horribly allergic to cats. So I'm sneezing and my eyes are tearing up, but I am determined to ignore it all and have the best sex of my life. THEN my ‘va-jay-jay’ must have been exposed to some kitty hair because it starts to swell up. I mean really SWELL UP. I've never seen anything like it before or since. Naturally, the V-day fun stopped there. ”
“One Valentine's Day, I planned an elaborate meal for my boyfriend. He acted really awkward during dinner, and when I gave him a gift he said, "Oh, I don't have your gift. Can I give it to you tomorrow?" I found later out that he was dating another girl and had already celebrated V-Day with her earlier that evening!”
“One year, I didn't have a date on Valentine's Day, so I went to see the movie Hitch. With my parents. And I sat between them. On the way home, my mother started singing the “Chicken Dance” song, and my dad joined in. Reluctantly (at first), I started singing too. Needless to say, this was not my proudest moment.”
So, do you still think your Valentine’s Day was worse after reading these?! If you think you could beat any of these disasters, don’t be shy and share your stories with us, we promise we won’t laugh (okay - maybe a little!) but we believe you have to see the funny side of things to really appreciate the meaning of Valentine’s Day!
