The pain of your first heartbreak tends to linger for quite a long time. Some people vow to never date again and some people vow to stay single until they get back together with their first love. This man made a vow that last for 50 long years.
A Special Gift
The day that she broke up with him she handed him a Christmas gift. Even though Christmas was right around the corner, he vowed to never take the wrapping off of the present. It's 50 years later and we're about to find out if he ever opened it.
The First Love
He was 17 years old and a senior at George S. Henry Secondary School in Toronto, Canada, when he met his first girlfriend. Soon enough, he was in love with her. Vicki Allen was her name, and like most high school flings, they spent enough time together for him to be hurt when Vicki ended things. The loss of a first love really is the worst.
Feeling the pain of heartbreak, he vowed to never open the present. Well, at least not until they were together again. That's when he would finally agree to open it. But that never happened. Over time, the man forgot about the gift, until Christmas day every single year.
Eventually, the two lost touch and moved on with their lives. Forgetting their young romance, they both married other people, but Adrian Pearce has held on to the gift for all of these years. But Adrian, who was now a married father of two, continued to put the gift under the tree each Christmas.
