This romantic fail is told from the perspective of the gift-receiver who found out that joking about insignificant things can actually have some serious consequences. You know, like getting a wind instrument you can’t play and don’t even care about as a loving Christmas present from your partner.
Sure, presents are almost always a type of gamble, but at this point, even a sweater or a nice pair of warm socks would have been better than learning your girl doesn’t get your sense of humor.
Winning Isn't Everything
Most Reddit users shared one specific romantic mishap, but this gal told it like it is: sometimes we just can't seem to get anything right, no matter how hard we try.
Now, since there were no details given, we can't know if she's seriously lacking in skill or if, maybe, her ex was just one of those sour-faced people that are never pleased with anything. Either way, it's safe to say they are probably both happy that this relationship is over.
A Mixing Mistake
Aren't high schoolers precious? How else would you define celebrating each and every month they've been dating? Sadly, not all of them are as lovely as we'd like to imagine. This guy, for example, sounds like kind of a downer.
Next time, when someone bothers compiling a list of songs that show how they feel about you, maybe try and ignore your so-called superior musical taste for a minute and try and be grateful for the gesture?
Love Never Dies
This third-grader knew the power of love from a very young age, and we bet that today, he makes for a great boyfriend or husband. Fake flowers are never ever acceptable, not as a gift and not as decoration, but this little fellow has a golden touch.
With a few words, he has turned a plastic rose into the ultimate symbol of undying love. So while he didn't get the girl, she still remembers him all these later and that's a win in our book.
Not Into Men Anyway
Being rejected for a romantic advancement is one of these things that never stop being hurtful, no matter how old we are and how many times we've been rejected. There's something about the word "no" when it's spoken from someone else's mouth that is just offensive and insulting.
Also, one should never ever "lol" when asked on a date, as these three letters are enough to crush anyone's ego. We hope the guy found comfort in the fact it really, truly, wasn't about him.
