Pink Palm Centro winner!
Okay, so being the winner of our "Pink Palm Centro Misery Giveaway" means you've been a big loser at love, at least once during Valentine's Day, but now you're getting the messaging phone extraordinaire and you can send hate messages to the one who wronged you. Only kidding....
The winner will be receiving the Pink Centro, valued at $399.99 (or $99 with a 2-year Sprint contract).
And the winning/losing story:
M & I had been dating for 7 years. Valentines Day was a huge day for us, as we had been set up on a blind date on V-day 2000. A mutual friend set us up & we hit it off immediately. We got close quickly, but were both happy with keeping our separate living arrangements as we were both professionals with busy work schedules. We had always talked of getting married at some point and having kids. We had similar ideas & ideals about marriage & families. Back to V-day. M always put a huge effort into making our V-day celebration special. I never knew from year to year what he would plan. One year, he whisked me away to NYC in a limo to an intimate dinner & then to a show that I had wanted to see. On the way, he took me to my favorite SoHo boutique to buy a new dress & beautiful shoes.
Don't be too jealous, see the misery come in after the jump...
So, early last year, the talk of marriage and kids had ramped up as we are both in our 30s. I was really expecting M to pop the question on our special V-day outing. He (in the past) never let on what he was planning, so it was no surprise to me that I didn't know what was planned that day. On the 13th, he told me that we would be having a dinner at his home. I got all spruced up and knew in my heart that M was going to ask me to marry him. It was the moment I had been waiting for, or so I thought. I hadn't told anyone my thoughts, as I am superstitious. So off to M's I went, with all of my little girl "pop the question" fantasies in mind. He was nervous & I was surprised to see that the intimate, romantic dinner I was expecting wasn't anywhere to be found. The butterflies in my stomach turned to lead. To get to the point, over dinner M told me that he had met someone in late December and that he had fallen head over heels in love with her (claiming he NOW knew what real love was) and he already knew he wanted to marry her.
The relationship that I had poured my heart and soul into was gone. M dumped me on our 7 year anniversary (7 year itch anyone??) in such a devastating way. He married J in September & she is already pregnant. I am left a bitter, Valentines Day hating old maid. I even took off work on V-day so I wouldn't have to see all the ladies & their V-day bouquets.
Congratulations/condolences to our winner! Your Palm Centro will be on its way, along with wishes for many happy Valentine's Days in the future.
