Stars always get the guy on TV and in movies.
But in real life? Not so much.
Read on for Hayden Panettiere, Lauren Conrad and the other stars' Valentine's Day horror stories.
"I went through a bad breakup and spent the day at a restaurant called Birds, where they had an anti-Valentine's Day party. You can hang up notes like I HATE HIM or HE WAS MEAN TO MY DOG and make a voodoo doll out of your ex and poke it."
"In fourth grade, I made the big huge card for a boy. I found it in the trash later in the day. It's cool. It's fine. I feel like I am better for it…not that I'm still thinking about it or anything."
"My worst Valentine's Day ever was, I think I was like 17, or 18, like the love of my life, like my boyfriend who I was obsessed with in love, my first love, left me on Valentine's Day and moved back home. He just left -- like never said anything. Who leaves on Valentine's Day when you have a girlfriend that you're supposedly in love with? I get it. it was young love, but it really, really sucked, and I think it ruined every Valentine's Day from here on out."
"I spent a ridiculous amount of money on a pair of Tiffany diamond stud earrings for a girlfriend -- it wasn't Jen Aniston! I gave them to her at dinner, and she burst into tears and said, 'You don't know me! I never wear studs, only drop earrings.' I was just, like, I can't win."
"In high school, I remember me and my friend were dating best friends and we went to a restaurant and we decorated the table and had presents waiting and had them meet us there on Valentine's Day and my date showed up drunk! I was really bummed. I put hours of work into it and he showed up drunk."
Jersey Shore's Snooki
"I couldn't go on a date because he lived two hours away. I said I didn't feel well, but really I was hung-over because I went out the night before and got trashed."
Chad Michael Murray
"A guy friend and I went to California Pizza Kitchen, and a group of pretty girls came over to us and said, 'You guys are gay, right?' I wound up really lonely.
"I once dated a guy who was like, 'Holy s*it, I just made out with Harriet the Spy!' And that's messed up. Don't say that. I was 10, you're 30, it's just weird."
