“Coin Toss”

manners

A guy I dated had a choice one night on going out with me or going with his friends. He flipped a coin and I lost.

Aftermath: He later came to my door and apologized, but it was too late.

“Cold Shoulder”

manners

It was our first date. We went for coffee, and then to the movies. I got chilly, so I leaned towards him, shivered, and commented that I was cold (what I thought was an obvious signal to put his arm around me). Without even taking his eyes off the screen he said, “So put your jacket on.”

— Tara

Aftermath: I wanted to walk out right there, but I was his ride home. A drive that should have taken me 20 minutes took less than 10, and I haven’t talked to him since.

“Dawson’s Creek Christmas”

chemistry manners

We’d been dating for 4 years. Found out I was pregnant, he said he wasn’t ready for a baby. So I had it “taken care of.” He never called b4 or after my surgery. Week later on Christmas Day. He dumped me, I bought his family including him gifts. He kept stating things like “I hate us,” “I don’t see you in my future” and “You’re a great girl. You’ll get over this.” He said it as though I was sleeping around or we were dating for only 4 months.

—Santana

Aftermath: He told me he want to be friends like Dawson and Joey from “Dawson’s Creek.” He went to Cuba the weekend before my birthday…and I got a call from Cuba saying, “Happy Birthday.” This happened this past December. The emotional and mental scarring is still fresh and I regret my decision everyday. I was going to dump him when I found out I was pregnant, but I thought we had a future and I didn’t want to ruin his or the future child’s.

“Dear Subscriber”

best of manners

I was out of town for a close family members funeral and he wrote me: “Dear subscriber, I know you’ve been out of town, but your sex balance is past due.. Your account will reach virginity status… Please f*ck to avoid disconnection. Thank you. ^-^”

—Kyya

Aftermath: That was his sympathy… I think that was definitely it, when I knew what we had built our relationship on.

“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.

—David

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.
