“Green Eyes”

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.


“Friends season premiere”

best of clashes

When I got pregnant, we couldn’t have sextoo riskyso 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!!!


“Aspirin Kiss”

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.


“Bright Orange”

best of chemistry

I met this guy while drunk, kissed him and made plans to meet him the next day. When I saw him the next day, he was wearing Oakley sunglasses with bright orange lenses and jeans that were too short and too tight.


Aftermath: He left town right after we met again. Though I told him I would look him up again, we only exchanged awkward instant messages afterward.
