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