I was being semi-stalked by this guy I worked with. Nothing too alarming. He didn't follow me home or text me a million times a day. Nonetheless, he made it clear he was pining for me. So, Valentine's Day rolls around. There's a knock on my office door, and I look up to see the guy dressed as Cupid. Yep. In an oversized "diaper," a garland on his head and a quiver full of bows. He was holding a dozen roses and a heart-shaped box of candy. I was mortified. For him and for me. I'd like to say I thought he was charming and we ended up together. Instead, I reported him to HR and he got transferred.

On Valentine's Day, I decided to sneak home early from work to make a spectacular romantic meal for my husband. Wine, steaks, gourmet cheeses. When I walked in the door, I saw his briefcase in its usual spot. I thought to myself, "awww......he's going to surprise me, too." Well, he did, allright. I walked in the bedroom to change and found him with two guys in bed. The worst part? He invited me to join them.

I was in 3rd grade. I was visiting my cousin, Eric, at his house the day before Valentine’s Day and I brought my little cards with me to work on to have them ready to pass out in class the next day. I thought I would be really amusing and cross out all the nice words and write incredibly means words instead.

So instead of, “I like you! Be my friend”, we crossed out “like” and wrote “hate.” Then, we added, “You can’t” in front of “Be my friend.”

I did this kind of thing to everybody’s card in my class except for the spiky-haired girl I was afraid of.

The next day, everyone opened his or her cards and I was laughing, enjoying my prank. Then, suddenly, I realized everyone was really angry with me. They ... read more

It was either 1991 or 1992 in Chicago. A very sudden (and totally unpredicted) blizzard whirled up on Valentine's Day. It had been balmy, almost 60 degrees for a couple of days beforehand, so I just had a light jacket and regular shoes on. By the time work ended, there was about a 14 inches of snow, all of which had fallen in about 5 hours. The city was virtually shut down. Everyone who couldn't catch a bus or taxi took to the trains.Needless to say, the wait was excruciating. After about two hours, I finally got a train. Then, I had to walk the six blocks home. OMG!!!!!!!! It was freakin' bitter cold and I could barely get through the drifts. By the time I got home, my scantily shod feet were literally encased in several inches of ice. I i... read more

The first Valentine's Day together with my "ex" he gave me the traditional card and chocolate heart box. Nice gesture, right? Since we have only been dating less than six months (and we were in college). Well, I opened the chocolate box only to discover they were moldy. Gross, but I had figured he must have bought a bad box.

After asking him about it (probably repeatedly), he must have felt guilty or something because he confessed that they were the chocolates he had gotten from his ex girlfriend, not one, but two Valentine's days ago! Seriously! Who regifts a box of chocolates from an ex two years later!?!? He really should have kept that one to himself. Needless to say I gave them right back to him. However, it did take me 5 more year... read more
