Valentine Blog Winner #3

Posted by on Wed, January 21st, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Every girl wishes to have a guy like her SO MUCH that he opens up his heart with an outpouring of love and writes a song for her. Be careful what you wish for ;)

It was Valentine’s day 1996. I had been dating a guy for a few months now, and really liked him a lot. I was under the impression that things were going really well…until I got my “gift”. It was a home made video tape (yeah VHS baby lol). He handed it to me with a smile from cheek to cheek. His exact words were “this is a little something I made, to express my feelings for you”. I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to get home and watch it.

It’s now 4pm, i’m home from school and anxious to watch the tape. I pop it in the vcr, press play and see my guy on the screen with a guitar in hand. He had written a song for me. I was waiting for him to say he loved me, or he couldn’t imagine life without me. Instead, I got the worst breakup of my life. There was MY guy, singing about how he’d been seeing another girl and never really cared for me. If I recall, the chorus was something like “she’s hotter then you, I want her real bad and.i’m sure right now you’re probably mad. You’ll wanna scream you’ll wanna cry but this is how i’m saying….goodbye”. Obviously I was crushed, but everything happens for a reason. He’s now 29 years old and still living with his mom. No job, no life. Who’s the one crying now???!! HAHAHAHA

What a jerk!! But you gotta love karma – not only does the Serenading Sap end up a big loser but our loyal Swaggernaut who sent in the story would have never won 14 Swag Bucks if this never happened! haha You also gotta love earning free Swag Bucks for doing your Valentine’s Day shopping. Check out the Valentine’s Day section of our Shop&Earn and make sure to sign up for the newsletter as well which will have a little surprise for all the recipients.

No need to check out the Valentine’s Day section if you’re planning on just writing a song for your special someone, but if you’re anything like the guy from this story I would suggest you get shopping! ;) haha
