“Dirty downloads”

best of manners

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.

“Mr. Sensitive”

He made fun of my friend for her hair loss. She was going through chemo at the time.

“Chivalry”

manners

Second date, bill came. I offered to split the bill and he told me I should pay since he got the first date. So much for chivalry.

—Sara

Aftermath: He tried to make-out with me after that. Denied! I ignored the next two weeks of phone calls and texts.

“A Stretch”

best of manners

A month into the relationship, we went to the pool and afterward he asked me why I had stretch marks. I said, I was probably 40 pounds heavier before he knew me. He proceeded with the question, “Did you have a baby? You had a baby, that’s why you have stretch marks.”

Aftermath: I was 17. I was not pregnant, I was just fat. I dumped him a few days later. He broke into my house to watch me sleep and profess that we were meant to be together. I got a restraining order because he started to stalk me.

“Subtitles”

best of manners

I knew it was over when his mom started speaking to him in Russian and he answered back in Russian–leaving me totally out of the loop and standing around like an idiot.

–Kat

Aftermath: We broke up. No subtitles required.
