“Used massage oil”

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.

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.

“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…

“Effortless Valentine’s”

manners

I knew it was over when I gave him a simple gift and card for Valentine’s (our first) and he gave me nothing. He has done nothing to make up for it.

—CSD

Aftermath: I’m done wasting my time on someone who doesn’t want to make an effort.
