Who says Valentine’s Day needs to be all love and flowers?
Let’s face it. Sometimes, love doesn’t exactly work out as planned. Whether it’s bad dates or a good intention that lead to a bad outcome—like arranging a skiing trip and breaking your leg on the trip, or buying a gift that triggered your beau's allergies— everyone has stories about trying to find, impress or keep “the one."
Some of those stories are pretty hilarious—in hindsight, of course.
That’s why, for Valentine's Day, Parsippany Patch wants to hear your bad, unfortunate or funny stories from past dates, break-ups or attempts to impress their significant other. We'll feature the stories as part of our Valentines coverage—hey, it really isn't all love and flowers—that will run before the big day.
Of course, if you have a romantic, sweet love story, such as that typified by the long marriage of Parsippany's editor, who is featured in the photo with her spouse Jeffry, we would love to hear that too. Love has to work for someone, after all, and perhaps your happy story may give a neighbor a bit of holiday hope.
