Poor guy! John Whitbred, 32, was dumped by his fiancÃ© right after Christmas.
“She said she didnâ€™t feel the same way when we first met and she hasnâ€™t been happy or herself the last month or so,” he told ABC News.
But, he says he holds no hard feelings against his ex-fiancÃ©, Amy. They had been together for two years and were engaged for a year.
“Of course it was hard,” he said about the breakup. “The fact thatâ€™s driving me is that I’m glad she did it when she did it. Sheâ€™s done the right thing. You donâ€™t want to be with someone if thatâ€™s how they feel about you.”
The only problem Whitbread has now is the non-refundable honeymoon, an all-inclusive two week stay in the Dominican Republic. The honeymoon set him back about $3000.00.
Whitbred lives in the English countryside of Donisthorpe.
What to do? Whitbred went to eBay to offer to share the honeymoon with him. He has asked that females only bid. He wants to get most of his money back for the cost of the honeymoon and he is donating any money over that amount to Balls to Cancer, a British men’s cancer charity.
“Itâ€™s never been about the money,” he said about the eBay sale. “I thought it would give someone an opportunity to go on a cheap holiday. I never thought it would get this response.”
There are just a few days left to bid and the highest bid so far is $9000.00.
“I didnâ€™t really put that much thought into it,” he said. “Itâ€™s not really sinister, because Iâ€™m not really asking for anything. I just hoped for a fun holiday with some female company. I think it will just be easier. If theyâ€™re bidding, theyâ€™re going to be adventurous anyways, I hope.”
He will be a true gentleman and he plans on sleeping on the couch during the “honeymoon.”
