“Lose a finger”

best of quirks

He said he’d “rather lose a finger than go bald.”


Aftermath: He was already going bald. I should have known something was wrong when he had to sleep with a hat on. We dated for two years, long distance.


“Hopeless Mama’s Boy”


A few weeks into the relationship I was making tea for both of us. When I asked him how he liked it, he made a call home to his Mom to ask how many spoons of sugar to put in.


Aftermath: Lasted a few weeks longer but ended after a discussion about the way his Mom thought I should act and dress. 22 years later, he still lives with his Mom.

“Not the Bravest Guy”


Woke at 2am to see a shadow at the window with a crowbar. Nudged him awake and whispered there was someone trying to break in. He screamed like a little girl and ran around to hide behind me. I was 5 months pregnant with our second daughter at the time.


Aftermath: Lost all respect. Divorced him. We both found more “manly” people to marry.

“Stay Classy”


We met in college. She was attractive and I wanted to date, but she kept me at arm’s length. When she told me that she liked dating married men because it was “safer” I cooled to a friendship. Then I met my future wife. When I told my classmate about my serious relationship, she came on to me like I was the last man on earth.


Aftermath: I have been married for 32 years and this is the first time I have thought about her in a long time.

“Boyband church boy”


He dumped me for my so-called “friend” so he could get publicity for his wanna-be boy band. He came back, and I gave him another chance. That is, until he cried and whined because I wouldn’t go to church with him.


Aftermath: I dumped him. Months later, he tried begging me to take him back. I saw him that night with his gf. He was shocked to see me!
