- 2001: I baked someone a giant chocolate chip cookie in the shape of a heart. They took it and laughed in my face. Needless to say, we didn’t hook up, but we’re still friends.
- 2000: Got someone 100 Hershey’s Kisses (their favourite chocolate) and put them in a heart-shaped box, taping it to their locker. Got turned down the next day.
- 1999: Got someone a teddy bear with a heart on their tummy and heart-shaped lollipops. Got a rejection phone call two days later, even after having had dinner with her family the night of that Valentine’s Day.
- 1998: Bought my then-girlfriend a rose and put it on her locker. That was my only successful Valentine’s Day.
Yup. Gotta love Valentine’s Day. I won’t be getting anyone a Valentine’s Day gift for a while yet 😑.
