Ladies, if you are planning to break up with your boyfriend, at least do it after Valentine’s Day.
This was the sentiment of a 21-year-old man called Philip, who resented it that his girlfriend wanted to leave him just two days before the day of hearts on February 14.
On Wednesday, Philip bit the ears of Kristel, 20, when she went to his boarding house to return the cell phone he lent her, as she was calling their relationship off.
Kristel, who resides in Tuao town, Cagayan province up north in Luzon, immediately went to a police station in Cagayan City from Barangay Caggay, where her boyfriend was, and filed a complaint.
She broke into tears at the police station, saying that her boyfriend suddenly became flustered with anger and bit her ears when she asked him to release her, as she didn’t love him anymore.
With blood oozing from her ears, Kristel told police investigators that she couldn’t bear to celebrate Valentine’s Day with Philip, for whom she didn’t have romantic feelings anymore.
Little did she know, she admitted, that Philip was also thinking of Valentine’s Day—when he would bring Kristel out to dinner in a nice restaurant.
Valentine’s Day is widely celebrated in the Philippines, with restaurants, flower shops, and motels and hotels making a killing from customers willing to pay more for dinner, flowers, and short-time stay compared with the amount they shell out for the same goods and services on ordinary days.
