Think Valentine’s Day and your mind probably comes up with multiple visions of romance and intimacy. Slightly OTT in terms of cheesiness maybe, but cutesy visions nonetheless. The hard reality, however, is that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes, things go terribly wrong and Valentine’s Day becomes a terrible memory you wish to repress. A few brave women tell all, recounting embarrassing V-Day horror stories from firsthand experience.

It’s understandable why she never spoke to him again.
