manners quirks

While talking on Skype he went to the bathroom and when he came back he forgot he was talking to me and started playing WOW and ignoring me when I tried to get his attention.

Aftermath: We are still together, but that’s only because I can’t find the right way to end it.

“Poster Child”


I saw his bedroom for the first time – the walls were COVERED in music posters, “cool” clippings from magazines, old concert tickets, and random show flyers. Did I mention he was 28?

Aftermath: We actually dated off and on for about a year before I finally broke it off for good. I always felt like I was 13 in that bedroom – and not in a good way.

“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.

— One lunch only

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.

“Daddy Don’t”


She said, “You remind me of the 4th of my 5 fathers.”
