Lonely Brit Sells Cut-Price Caribbean Trip

Young women interested in a romantic getaway at a Caribbean resort will find a half-price offer at eBay. At $1,200 and it's a great deal, as long as you don't mind going with a stranger. Briton Adam Croot had planned to propose to his girlfriend at the resort. That was before she dumped him. The tickets and hotel deposit are non-refundable. So rather than lose the money, he's hoping to sell the other half, now that he doesn't have an other half.
