“Mom’s approval”

chemistry

I realized it was over when I wanted to spend more time with my mom and her 25-year-old boyfriend than with my boyfriend.

Aftermath: I used my mom as an excuse to dump him — “she didn’t approve” of my dating him.

“Hooters T-shirt”

best of chemistry

When I was 19, I dated this country boy while I was home from college for the summer. I knew it wouldn’t work when he showed up for a date one night in a Hooters T-shirt, cut-off shorts and high-top shoes. Then we went to a gravel pit and made out in the back of his pickup.

—Summer

Aftermath: It was fun while it lasted (about a week), but we would never have made it past that “What does it all mean?” conversation.

“My arm fell asleep”

best of chemistry

When we were in bed spooning one night, and my arm fell asleep underneath her. As I went to slide my arm out, she turned around and said, “What’s wrong with you? Don’t you love me?” She rolled over and bawled for the next hour, inconsolable.

Aftermath: Two months later, we were through. After my arm fell asleep, there was a constant boo-hoo over everything. I couldn’t take it.

“Through teary eyes”

It was her turn to pick where we ate, but after 45 minutes of passing restaurant after restaurant, I finally looked over and asked her, “Really, where do you want to go?” She looked at me through teary eyes and said, “I don’t know!”

—Bill

Aftermath: We ate salty food at T.G.I. Friday’s. She paid. We broke up the next day.

“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.
