A ‘sell’ of a way to get over love re­jec­tion

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HAP­LESS ro­man­tics dumped by their part­ner af­ter buy­ing Valen­tine’s Day gifts are now des­per­ately try­ing to sell them on the in­ter­net.

The heart­bro­ken lovers are sell­ing en­gage­ment rings, bracelets and ex­pen­sive shoes in a bid to claw back their money.

Bit­ter men and women are also sell­ing gifts they re­ceived from for­mer part­ners as they try to ‘move on’.

Some of the ad­verts posted this week, which in­clude cud­dly toys and di­a­mond ear­rings, fea­ture irate rants from jilted Brits strug­gling to come to terms with their split.

One ad­vert for a Nikon cam­era says: “Un­wanted gift from an idiot ex-boyfriend!”

An­other, on clas­si­fied ad­ver­tis­ing web­site Gumtree.com, says: “Di­a­mond ear­rings – bought by my now ex-boyfriend so want to sell them!”

A stag­ger­ing 64 per cent of the ad­verts placed on the site for un­wanted Valen­tine’s Day gifts are from men.

One wrote: “Jimmy Choo boots – bought for ex-girl­friend, cost me £425.”

An­other, sell­ing a re­jected di­a­mond en­gage­ment ring, said: “I can’t stand see­ing it any more.”
