“The second his fingers”

manners

My long-distance boyfriend and I took a holiday vacation together. He was sick and had the sniffles all weekend. The sniffling was annoying, but I cut him some slack since he was sick. On the last day of our trip, using his fingers, he combed boogers out of his protruding nose hair and ate them. It was over the second his fingers hit his lips.

Aftermath: I resisted the urge to dump him in the airport before we parted ways, but did so 2 weeks later over the phone. I didn’t tell him the reason.

“Used massage oil”

manners

He gave me a used massage oil candle for a going away present when I was moving home to take care of my dying mother.

—Marissa

Aftermath: He called me about a month later to express his condolences after her passing. Shortly thereafter he changed his Facebook status to say he was in a relationship with someone else.

“Multitasking”

manners

I knew it was over when I knocked on the bathroom door and he said “come in” only for me to see him taking a number 2 and eating breakfast simultaneously.

Aftermath: It ended right there.

“She went there”

She told me I loaded the dish washer wrong and was going to have to re-teach me everything my mother had ever taught me.

“Distance”

manners

I knew it was over when every conversation with him was via text message—never a phone call. He lived about 2 or 3 hours away and that was all I got from him after 2 in-person dates. He said I was perfect, wonderful etc. but the distance was too much for him to handle…and it apparently was too much for him to pick up the phone and speak.

Aftermath: It didn’t last more than a month or so after our first date. I tried to get him to call and he blew up at me via text message…
