“Late”

best of manners

He asked me out on a date and said he’d pick me up at 8. He called at 7:30 to tell me he would be half an hour late. By 9:00 P.M. I had called and texted him with no response. Realizing that he had flopped, I started making other plans. He called me at 11 saying, “Hey, I’m free now, want to meet up?”

Aftermath: He called and texted me like crazy after, I (stupidly) agreed to give him another chance which resulted in flopped date number two. I told the time-wasting dipsh*t to forget my cell phone number and my name.

“You didn’t just do that !?!”

best of manners

He thought I was asleep and didn’t know I could see him, sitting in the bathroom (with the door open). As if that wasn’t bad enough, he proceeded to pick his nose, examine it closely, and eat it!

Aftermath: It’s been several years and I still can’t get the awful image out of my mind. First, SHUT THE DOOR. Second, watch what you eat.

“Text-pal”

best of manners

Went out to dinner with an old girlfriend. Up front, I asked if she was seeing anyone. She replied, “No.” After dinner, we went back to my place to watch a movie. She had been rudely texting most of the evening thru dinner and our conversations…so I was curious at this “text-pal.” I maneuvered to give her a shoulder massage and looked onto her phone and discovered explicit texts to some guy.

Aftermath: Movie concluded. I drove her home and she asked why I didn’t invite her to stay the night…

“Old Nerd”

manners

Even though he was an unemployed, recent law grad who had no actual career before, he would always correct me when I would call the condo that “he owned” an “apartment” by mistake—as if I couldn’t pickup on the concept of mommy and daddy footing the bill. He kept calling me a “nerd” about everything including having a job….and called me “old” nonstop when I was 26 and he 25.

Aftermath: I let up on the contact. My old, nerdy ass now has a boyfriend that is 2 years younger. He may rent but at least he supports himself and has more wit than simply calling me old and nerdy every 5 minutes.

“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!

—Boopy

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