It was 2016 , We had a romantic evening planned and we even spoke about it that morning and then half an hour before he was supposed to fetch me I find out instead of having a romantic evening with me he drove all the way to Newcastle to gamble the money that was meant for the evening out , with a friend he told me he didn’t even like.

Drunken Love

My partner who I was with for 2 years decided she was going to invite me to her place for a valentines day dinner. I got to her place that evening to find her drunk out of her mind. She then proceeded to get physically abusive with me, complete turn off and definitely worst valentines day 2015 experience ever.

Tying the knot

A few years ago my boyfriend and I were walking around town on Valentines Day afternoon eating an ice cream. He was so romantic with me the entire day and I was just completely in love. We then went to spur to have dinner and during our dinner, he got up and knelt down… My heart almost skipped a beat… Only to realize he was just tying his shoelace… lol epic fail

Bad Mood Valentine

Use #BadMoodValentine to vote for this entry

Last year I thought I had found my significant other and everything was so amazing all the time. So I decided to skip out on work on valentines day and spend the day making ‘our’ apartment romantic for later, a little bit after 1 pm she came home and was so annoyed that I was there. I couldn’t understand why? Then her phone rang, it was security at the gate asking if they could let someone in… She started freaking out saying to me I need to go because her parents are here and they in a bad mood. I said ok ill go. As I was getting into my vehicle I waited for her parents to get here. And they didn’t. But there was a vehicle that parked and a guy got out and immediately went into the apartment. I then got out of my car and opened the door to see her and him making out. A lot happened after that but it was the worst experience of my life.
