Heartbreak for sale – two thirds of unwanted romantic mementos sold on are posted by men

Tuesday 15 February 2011, by

Online local noticeboard has seen a surge in ads from disgruntled ex-lovers – as they try to recoup money from ruined Valentine’s Day plans, or convert their ex’s gifts into cash.

Nearly two thirds (63 per cent) of the adverts are posted by heartbroken men selling items relating to an ex-girlfriend, opposed to just 36 percent posted by women.
