“He let his dog”

I found out he let his dog sleep with him…under the covers.

—Becky

Aftermath: We dated another 3 months, until about April. I guess the dog was actually sort of cozy over the winter.

“Denver Broncos”

best of chemistry

He cried when the Denver Broncos lost. He didn’t live in Denver, hadn’t gone to college there and had no money riding on the game. He never even played football.

—Nicole

Aftermath: It lasted about three months after that. I realized that I played more football than he did.

“Her friend’s pants”

chemistry

I went to a New Year’s Eve party and thought, “You are ugly and I’m not attracted to you.” I was only dating her to get in her friend’s pants.

—Brian

Aftermath: I broke it off New Year’s Day. God, I’m such an a**hole.

“When you date a stripper”

best of chemistry

She spent our date telling me how she’d had an affair with our waitress, which was fine. That happens when you date a stripper—it’s half the reason you date a stripper. But, when she took me home, she drove demon-fast, erratically and sang over an ear-splitting stereo. She then flashed the cars next to us while swerving into their lane.

—Rob

Aftermath: I never called her again, though she did show up at my house on her break, wearing a waist-length blond wig. I turned her down gently, not telling her that she was two degrees too crazy for me.

“A light went off”

chemistry

We were sitting on his couch, talking about our derailing romance, hashing out whether we’d be able to remain friends. And then the subject changed to his career aspirations. As he spoke so animatedly about what he wanted to do, a light went off in my head: I could never be with someone whose job I didn’t really give a s*** about. That’s when I said abruptly: “Oh my gosh, we can totally be friends!” He looked confused.

—Jenna

Aftermath: A few weeks later, I met a fascinating urban planner.
