“Beat the Ticket”


First (and last) date was over lunch. She bragged about the time she lied to a cop who pulled her over when she was speeding. She told him that she was racing to get home because a neighbor called and told her that her house was being burglarized. The cop followed her home where she took him on a wild goose chase around her yard before he determined she was safe. She was thrilled with the way she escaped a ticket. I knew that I didn’t want to date a liar and finished lunch ASAP.

Aftermath: At the end of the meal, she suggested we get together again and I said my schedule is pretty full. It still is, if it’s her.

“Short sleeve surprise”


I had been dating her for three months. Before we had met, she used to be a “cutter.” I never brought it up, for fear of her mental stability. When she wore short sleeves around me for the first time, the name “Brian,” (her ex-boyfriend) was clearly carved into her wrists.

Aftermath: For the past seven years since we broke up, we’ve only talked a handful of times.

He used the word “ain’t” in casual conversation and meant it. I work in communications, and one of my pet peeves is bad grammar.

“Mama’s Boy”

best of quirks

He talked to his mother so much he would even answer the phone at the movies!! One day I called him and he told me he couldn’t talk because he was painting her toe nails.

Aftermath: I told him it wasn’t working out. His mother called me the next day to ask why.
