“That IS Too Bad”

chemistry manners Uncategorized

We were snowed in at her parent’s house and I’d spent the last three and a half hours digging her and her family out. Exhausted, I sagged to the floor of her room and asked if she had any Chapstick. “I offered you some yesterday and you didn’t take it.” “I didn’t need it yesterday.” “Well, than that’s too bad, isn’t it?”
I silently stood up and left the room.

Aftermath: First night I was stuck there was great; second night, she was downright mean. Still not sure if I’m COMPLETELY done with her, but damn, I’m close. I didn’t wait for her to finish a semester abroad so she could come back and talk to me like I’m ten years old.

“Imperfect Match”

best of chemistry

Met a guy on a dating site. One night he slept over – I woke up at 2:30 am to a blaring TV and no guy. I called him: “Where’d you go?” “To a buddy’s.” “Why’d you just leave in the middle of the night?” “Well I left a note.”

Reading the note, it stated how we were an “imperfect MATCH.” Classic.

— Drea

Aftermath: He called me a few days later, but I never spoke to him again.

“Do the Math”

chemistry

Advice from someone else – take your current age (35) and your life expectancy (40+), do you want to live with this woman and her controlling style and verbal abuse for that many more years?

— Peter

Aftermath: I left that marriage after 11 years and two children. I am now happily married and a grandfather. She is still single and bitter for 23 years.

“Confused Clueless”

chemistry

After sex, he proceeded to say “You’re the type of girl a guy marries,” plus additional pillow talk, and then showed me all of his best friends on Facebook. It was the second time we’d slept together and we were friends with benefits.

—CT

Aftermath: A week later, he called to say I was emotionally detached and not being in a relationship was corrupting his soul and that this wouldn’t work. I’m still wondering what “this” was exactly.

“Rollercoaster”

chemistry

We were each other’s first loves. Completely inseparable, we got together when I was 15, and stayed together for 3.3 years, even surviving several months of being in separate cities when I moved away for university. However, he stopped making effort, considered an hour to be “long distance” and he never listened anymore. So I ended it.

—Hannah

Aftermath: He is now with one of my best friends, and I don’t speak to either of them anymore. However, before they got together, I totally upgraded, and what I thought would be merely a fling has blossomed into an amazing relationship that is ironically what I would call real long distance—I am English and my boyfriend is Canadian. We met at university while he was here for the year and I couldn’t be happier with him. He is perfect for me and far exceeds my ex in EVERY way.
