“Lose me”

best of clashes

After a year and a half of being on-and-off, he called to let me know he wasn’t ready to lose me…or the woman two decades older than me that he had begun seeing.

Stormy

Aftermath: It lasted as long as it took me to hang up the phone.

“Wiccan”

clashes

About a year into our relationship she told me she felt that I didn’t give her the space to practice her Wiccan religion freely. I was totally dumbfounded and asked her how she thought I was not giving her that personal space. (We didn’t live together). She said she didn’t know, yet still stuck with her point.

Aftermath: It lasted a week after that. That comment, plus her moping all the time about everything and anything, totally killed it. Nothing is worth that.

“Fast & hard”

clashes

My boyfriend and I fell in love, fast & hard. Shortly after that, I found out I was expecting a baby. Soon after that, I found out my boyfriend had an addiction to prescription pills. I knew it was over while still recovering from my c-section delivery. He was stealing my pain medication out of my purse. Nice guy, huh?

—Lydia

Aftermath: Our relationship lasted another two long years. He went from one addiction to the next and I realized what an idiot I was.

“World of Warcraft, naked”

clashes

A month before our five-year anniversary, he told me he couldn’t make love to me because I’d become so fat that he couldn’t stand looking at me naked. I gained about 11 lbs, or 5 kg. Four months before that, he weighted 275lbs (125kg), so I told him he was a hypocrite. He then apologized, but started sleeping with another woman whom he met on a World of Warcraft server.

Aftermath: We lasted for another 15 days, tried to be friends for months but it always ended with him trying to sleep with me. Four months later, I met a guy who showed me what a loving relationship should look like.

“Joint custody”

best of clashes

He called me a c*** because I told him it was stupid that he and his ex-girlfriend had joint custody of their dogs.

—Chelle

Aftermath: We tried to make it work, but after he said he wasn’t sure if he would love his child more than his dogs, I was done. We haven’t talked in over a year…thankfully.
