Being dumped on Valentine's Day


Emily, 35, teacher, Cambridge
The other year, my husband left for work as usual on Valentine's Day. I sent him a text telling him I love him but I didn't get a reply. Surprised, I sent him a second one asking "What's up?". He replied with: "We need to talk". I couldn't wait until the evening so I rang him straightaway.

I badgered him into telling me what was wrong and he finally confessed that he didn't feel anything for me anymore. i couldn't take in what he was saying. I hung up and started throwing his stuff in a suitcase.

He came home late that evening and told me that I shouldn't blame myself for anything, and that I was a perfect wife. What a thing to say! After telling the children that he was going away for a while, he left and never came back.

At the time, I was going out with Luke. For Valentine's Day, I prepared a surprise for him: I ran a bath with his favorite bubble bath, sprinkled false rose petals over the bed and placed candles everywhere. I skipped my last lecture so I could prepare it all. But just before 8pm, the time when he was due home from work, I received a text message: he wanted to end our relationship. I was in complete shock! I've hated Valentine's Day ever since.
