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.

— Mari

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

“Tidy TP”


I used his bathroom and he told me he was proud of me! I said I didn’t know what he was talking about and he said that I had finally ripped the toilet paper off at the very top and hadn’t left any sheets hanging below the roll!

— Pixie

Aftermath: I couldn’t take how obsessive-compulsive he was so I broke up with him.

“Lesbian Avatar”


My husband was in an online game using a female avatar and fell in love with another player, also a female avatar. They had a wedding ceremony online in which my husband proudly proclaimed he’d never loved anyone the way he loves her.

— Barbara

Aftermath: Haha! Not only was my husband’s avatar piloted by a man – so was the other “woman.” We’re divorced now and I hear my ex is pursuing a sex change.

“Big brother is watching…”


He wouldn’t get his deviated septum repaired because he didn’t want to have a nose job on his “record.” I never did find out who he thought was watching him so closely.

— Amy

Aftermath: We dated on and off for two years. I was willing to overlook a few things. He was hot!
