“Age of Love”

best of manners

I had been dating a younger man for several years. I had never been so in sync with anyone before and he felt the same way. He said: “This is the most incredible relationship; it’s beyond my wildest dreams.” I agreed. But I knew it was over when he said he loved me so much but he was doubtful because (his very words) “I don’t want to get stuck with an old lady.” Wow, words of love from Mr. Sensitive!

Aftermath: It turns out I didn’t get stuck with an idiot.

“The Deer Hunter”

best of manners

This wasn’t a hunting expedition, at least that’s what my husband told me when I agreed to go with him. We were in the truck when we spotted a deer about ten yards from the dirt road we were on. Before I knew it, my husband had gotten his gun out and shot the doe while still sitting in the truck. I was horrified.

—Becca

Aftermath: What he did was illegal and I lost a lot of respect for him that day. I also realized just how little he respected me because he wasn’t a bit concerned about how it made me feel witnessing the kill. We divorced a year later.

“Snap”

He snapped his fingers at the extremely swamped bartender.

—Jer

Aftermath: This was merely a portent of the boorish and exceedingly rude behavior to come that night. After exchanging a horrified look with the bartender and mouthing “Sorry!” I hurried the date to its conclusion as quickly as possible.

“Just a Friend”

It was over when we were out for the first time with my friends. She invited out a “friend” and proceeded to hang off his arm. I ditched her and her friend immediately, with the bar tab.

Aftermath: She tried to contact me two days later to see if she could buy weed off a friend of mine. I let her know she had no class.

“Dirty downloads”

We had been out on a few dates and I wanted him to meet my best friend and her boyfriend. We all decided to meet at a nice restaurant. Everything was going fine until he opened his phone and started showing my best friend all the porn he had downloaded.

—Jillian

Aftermath: It was over two weeks later.
