Valentine's least romantic gifts

by Dateable.com

Hey honey, I love you.

Here's a Nordic Trak.

Happy Valentine's Day.

When it comes to romancing their partner, it's clear that cupid's arrows certainly can miss their mark.

There are a lot of unromantic people, losers in the love category, who believe exercise equipment or house wares make appropriate Valentine's Day gifts.

In a recent survey on Dateable.com, we posed the question:

What is the least romantic gift you've received on Valentine's Day?

Here are the top three winners (or losers):


Gold Heart: Roses, with a card for another woman!

Silver Heart: A Nordic Trac. This person states, "I am not sure if the message was your fat or not, but let's just say I was not thrilled."

Bronze Heart: A book on making love. "Sounds good but it sure can make a gal insecure," says an anonymous voter.


Most of the runner-ups were household appliances and tools. What is this fascination for appliances?

Ironically, a recent study revealed that the number of clean homes are declining due to women in the workforce. Although these gifts are practical, they are, nonetheless, unromantic.  Runner-ups include the following: 

      A vacuum
      A blender
      Cleaning supplies
      A Black & Decker screwdriver
      A power steering hose
      A toaster
      A broom


I was asked the question: "So how do we end this? A handshake or a high five?"

Divorce Court.

(You'd think the judge would schedule other types of cases for that day, right?)

A pear.

Yes! A damn pear!

I wanted a pear shaped diamond.

But, I got.. an actual pear!!
