“Too many signs”

chemistry

When she left for an overseas internship…when she stopped saying I love you…when the only time we would go out was with her friends.

Aftermath: After another terrible night out with her friends, we meet the next day for a beer, and parted ways before I finished my one drink.

“Inexperienced”

best of chemistry

It somehow came up in discussion, and apparently I’ve kissed more girls than he has. And I’ve never even been into girls. I think he needs more dating experience before getting serious with me.

—Jen

Aftermath: I’m procrastinating ending things. Maybe a break, or a breakup. I swear I’ve tried, but he’s so cute…

“Plan Eh?”

best of chemistry

After sex, I thought it would be a good idea to take Plan B and made my boyfriend go get it from the pharmacy. Upon his return, he told me not to take it and that having a baby would be fun. Or if not, he hoped we could rent one for the day.

—Erica

Aftermath: Two months later….I realized his incessant need for marriage and children after 4 months, at age 24, was a little too much for me. The kicker? I broke up with him and he claimed he had been planned on breaking up with me all along.

“A Fun Guy”

best of chemistry

My boyfriend and I were always laughing and having fun. We both had the same quirky sense of humor and enjoyed the same activities and even shared a passion: salsa dancing. It was a constant joy fest when we were together. But, for various (and really, pretty lame) reasons he decided I was not the right one to marry and he just had to be married. Even though he admitted that he would never again meet anyone with whom he could have so much fun he cried out in pitifully: “I don’t want to have fun, I want to be happy!!” Oh-hhh-K.

—Ginger

Aftermath: He has now traded in joyfulness and fun for ho-hum mediocrity with a new lady. What he really needed is someone to control. That’s his idea of happiness.

“Ireland”

chemistry

She came back from a summer in Ireland a completely different person. I said to her, “You used to love every moment together. You used to love every time I touched you. You don’t even want me to touch you anymore, do you?”
She screamed through a rush of tears, “No!”

–Gill

Aftermath: I drank, did lots of drugs and messed around with other women for a whole year before converting back to my Catholic faith. Now I’m dating her roommate. I had a crush on her first, anyway.
