How to: Fix a Valentine’s Day Fail

Did your Valentine’s Day not go as planned? We’ve all been there. Whether something went awry, didn’t happen at all or you stayed home to wallow, we’ve all got a story of a Valentine’s Day Fail.

My favourite cute-fail? My former roomie had been dating her now-longterm boyfriend for only a few weeks when her Valentine’s Day flowers arrived (hooray!) along with a teddy bear (awww) who was hugging an I Love You cushion (OMG). This strongly-worded bear has now become quite the inside joke, but you can imagine the freak-out that happened!

I can’t say I’ve ever had a truly horrible Valentine’s Day, although there have been more than a few guys in my life who have dropped the ball on the ‘big day’. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have a do-over?

Valentine's Day contest

I’ve partnered with Durex to give you just that: a do-over. Tell me about your best or worst Valentine’s Day for a chance to let the Durex #SavesTheDate fairy godmothers turn your dud date into a wow. How are we going to do that? Simple. We’re going to give you $150 to go on the date of your dreams plus a prize pack of Durex goodies worth $100 should your improved evening go really really well.

What could you do with $150? I would visit Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada for a romantic stroll in the fishy tunnel of love then head to a cozy nearby dinner spot – think e11even or Mirto for a bite over a bottle of wine. Here are a few other options from my Twitter followers:
