best of quirks
I realized he had a sickly attachment to his mother and preferred porn over sex with a woman with a great body who knows how to use it.
Aftermath: We went on and off for a year and a half, though it should’ve ended a lot sooner! I left him after he copped out of picking me up at the airport and left me to take a shuttle in snowy, holiday, gridlocked traffic. I got home SIX hours later than I should have.
best of chemistry
One day, casually sitting next to me on the couch, he looks over and says, “You know, you’d be perfect…with green eyes.”
Aftermath: We stayed together a year and a half, to two years. The comment was made pretty early on, but it stuck with me through the end. Crazy as it sounds, my eye color should not be that important to him.
best of clashes
When I got pregnant, we couldn’t have sex—too risky—so you can imagine how 11 and half months later I was more than ready to be touched again. Imagine my surprise when I lit the candles, put on the lingerie and presented myself to my husband, only to be told “Um, can we do this tomorrow? It’s the season premiere of Friends and I don’t wanna miss it” All I could do was go to bed and cry myself to sleep. I did for a week after that; he had no clue what he did to me.
Aftermath: The relationship ended that evening, in my heart anyway, and I asked for a divorce three months later. He never touched me again, the thought sickened me. I deserved better, so much better!!!
best of chemistry
We broke up when he told me I “tasted like aspirin when we kissed.”
Aftermath: It was our sophomore year in high school. I should have known he was a jerk when he broke up with his girlfriend for me.
best of secrets!
He hid his DUI from me for months. Later, he almost threw me out of his house after I asked what I was to him after we’d been “dating” for 4 months.
Aftermath: I slept with him off and on, and after two years of wanting him to fall in love with me, finally realized I need to let go. It’s amazing how great sex can cloud judgment.
