In honor of Valentine’s Day, MyVeryWorstDate.com is holding a contest for the most cringe-worthy, laugh-out-loud, WTF! dating story in the country. The winner, who’ll be announced on February 14th, will receive 1000 bucks cash to help pay for the PTSD therapy sessions. Here are the basic rules (click here for the fine print):

1. It’s free to enter.

2. Submission guidelines are as usual. One exception: word count. Go ahead and go crazy with gory/funny/gross details but please keep it under 500 words.

3. It has to be your own story. Refrain from using real names for offenders. Initials will do.

4. Please include your name and phone as we might need to get in touch. We won’t hand out your digits to anyone. Promise.

5. Send it in to [email protected] by 12 p.m. EST on February 12, 2010. The winner will be announced on February 14, 2010 and receive payment by March 15, 2010.
