One in 10 Britons, according to our latest news Sun’s Valentine’s Day Exclusive Survey.
But Eddie Price, a builder from Leicester, East Midlands, says he doesn’t care if his ex splits with him because of his “stingy” gifts.
The 27-year-old told The Sun: “I gave a daffodil in my backyard and an old card to celebrate February 14th.
“She thought it was a joke at first until she realized I was serious.
“For me, spend hundreds pounds on a bouquet of roses which will die in the next few days is a complete waste. “
Eddie says angry exes have called him “stingy” and “shy” in the past.
He added, “I don’t care what girls think. If you’re materialistic, I don’t want to be with you in any way.
“My friends think it’s funny, they call me Penny Pinching Pricey, but I’m saving to buy a house and have more important things to spend my hard earned money on.”
Last year, Eddie met 26-year-old administrative assistant Jennifer*, whom he dated for eight weeks after meeting at a friend’s party.
He said: “She was obsessed with Valentine’s Day and kept making suggestions about how much money her ex had spent on her in the past and how they showered her with expensive gifts. money.
“She even sent me a link to her favorite florist and highlighted a Valentine’s Day bouquet of red roses, starting at £100, and suggested a classy sushi restaurant. where their Valentine’s Day packages start from £150.
“I can’t believe it. There’s no way I’d spend that money on her.”
She threw me on the spot when I gave her daffodils in my backyard for Valentine’s Day. She dumped me that day by texting
Eddie said when she arrived at his apartment on the big day, she was amazed that there wasn’t a bunch of expensive roses waiting for her along with an expensive present.
“Instead, I gave her some daffodils from my backyard,” he explains.
“She was in great pain and stunned when she realized we weren’t going to an expensive restaurant. She dumped me that day by texting.”
Four years ago, another girlfriend told Eddie he didn’t take the relationship seriously when he gave her a recycled Valentine’s Day card.
“She was always talking about saving the environment so I thought she would be impressed with my upgrading skills,” he recalls.
“I cut the front of an old Valentine’s Day card an ex made for me and stuck it on new cardboard and folded it to look like a new card.
“I wrote a nice note inside and thought it was pretty sweet. I hoped she would see the funny side, but she didn’t and dumped me.”
There’s too much pressure on girls to spend a lot on Valentine’s Day so their aunts can brag on Instagram
Now he’s always been frank with women that he doesn’t like to spend money on “trash” things.
“I told them I was saving to buy a house and was very careful with my cash,” explains Eddie.
“There’s so much pressure on blokes to spend a lot on Valentine’s Day so their aunts can brag on Instagram.
“That’s pathetic. I’d rather be a compulsive person than be in debt on Valentine’s Day.”
