““Real money””

best of chemistry

I asked him what he wanted to be doing in five years. He said “still driving a truck and finally be making real money at $15.00 per hour.” He had already been working there for five years and had started the job at $13.00 per hour.

Aftermath: We lasted two weeks after that. And the clincher? It ended when I had to give him a pen so he could sign my birthday card.

“Stained”

chemistry

We were having some drinks with friends at my house. He raised is glass, looked at the coaster…and cleaned it against the white tablecloth. “It was stained,” he said.

Aftermath: When it was over, more than a year later, that moment played again and again in my mind. I should have realized right then.

“Hospital smell”

best of chemistry

We hung out a couple times, had some drinks and went back to her apartment. I was blown away by her comfortability in disrobing and how amazing her rack was. We had great sex…and then I noticed it. She had the peculiar smell of a hospital when she perspired. That did it!

Aftermath: We met at the movies a week or so later.  I really hoped it was something in her apartment, but as she hugged me at the theater, the hospital smell wafted up my nostrils for the last time!

“Twilight v. Shakespeare”

best of chemistry

Being well-read is a major turn-on for me. On the first date, I referenced Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” and “Much Ado about Nothing,” and she had never even heard of them. But she had read “Twilight.”

Aftermath: There was not a second date.

“Pocket Bible”

chemistry

On our second date when at the restaurant, while we were waiting for our dinner, he pulled out his pocket Bible and asked me what my favorite verse was. When I couldn’t think of one, he read me his favorite one and preached to me about God’s love for the rest of the night.

Aftermath: I went out with him one more time so he wouldn’t think that his God talk scared me away. But it totally did!
