Valentine’s Injuries Prove That Love Really Does Hurt for 65% of Men!
Watch out this Valentine's Day. A survey by dating Website CupidBay.com has revealed that men and women are particularly accident-prone on February 14th, with fires and trips to A&E commonplace.
(PRWEB) -- February 14th sees a plethora of calamities according to dating Website CupidBay.com ( www.cupidbay.com ).
A survey of the site's 100,000 plus users revealed that nerves and excitement were largely responsible for men's mishaps. Worryingly, 65% of males confessed to a Valentine's Day accident, with 30% claiming that they had fallen down stairs during a pre-date grooming frenzy. Meanwhile, getting married on Valentine's Day was considered a grievous ‘accident' according to 11 per cent of the women polled. Many resented getting married on February the 14th because a subsequent split ruined future Valentine's days.
Romantic candlelight suppers proved to be dangerous for 18 per cent of male and female respondents. Kissing across the dinner table caused loose hair to singe, dangling ties to ignite and napkins to combust. Wrapping presents and cutting out paper hearts caused 18% to cut hands and slice fingers. One man, bereft of scissors, improvised
with a Bowie knife, only to cut off a chunk of his finger. Just over 17 per cent of CupidBay.com users had either broken a bone or an object on the day, with multiple reports of fractured noses and presents being run over by vehicles.
Other passion killing stories included: the walker who crash-landed into a tent whilst the couple inside were having sex, the unlucky pair who were hospitalised on Valentine's night when they got knocked down by a car after their romantic dinner, the teenagers who visited A&E to be surgically removed from each other after amorous snuggling caused the boy's dental braces to catch in his girlfriend's earring, several weak-kneed men, who in their haste to carry their beloved to bed, either smacked their partner's head against the doorframe or fell over and the man who required hospitalisation and four stitches after catching his testicles in a chest of drawers while rooting around for clean underwear.
“Love is never going to be like in the movies, so, as with any special occasion, it's always wise to plan carefully and book and prepare anything that you can well in advance,” said CupidBay.com's relationship guru, Francis Deacon. “The key is to relax and enjoy. Nervousness can be one of the worst passion killers and makes even the most ardent of Casanovas prone to clumsiness and accidents.”
