“Sales Director”


The CEO of a company that I worked for called to tell me that my boyfriend, an investor in the company, was having an affair with the Sales Director’s best friend.


Aftermath: I had to ride to business meetings with the Sales Director while she fielded personal calls about bridesmaids’ dresses. When things soured between the cheating couple–they divorced after six months–I endured the Sales Director’s questions about my ex’s moral character.

“World Trade Center”

best of secrets!

He told me he was on the phone with someone in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and then saved people in a stranded subway train, and then had qualified for several Ironman Triathlons, and was in a ten-car accident, and…..


Aftermath: I tried to break up Mr. Pathological Liar without saying why. We broke up and he continued to track me for a couple of years.

“The best news”


When I learned he cheated on me, it was the best news I could have had in that moment. It opened my eyes and let me see that I deserved waaay better than a cheater and I shouldn’t be crying for a guy who didn’t even have the guts to tell me to my face that it was over before he started dating another woman.


Aftermath: Now we aren’t friends, not even enemies, I’m just so over him. I’m engaged to the best man in the world, getting married in three weeks, happier than ever and more in love than ever.

“She said I was crazy”


I read something about a woman setting her husband up with a comfortable life so she wouldn’t feel guilty about leaving him. I saw an unsettling connection between my wife’s excitement about my recent promotion, so I asked “Are you happy for me because you want a divorce?” She said I was crazy. But, she left me a week later, after months of planning. I knew it was over when she was happy for me.



“Forbidden Romance”


My job prohibited employees from dating managers but we often would go out as a group. Shortly after my 18th birthday, my manager asked me if I was going to the movie on Friday. When I arrived to meet up with everyone, I discovered that nobody else knew about it. He told me he wanted to see me but we couldn’t let anyone know or we could lose our jobs. We secretly dated for about 8 months until I found out that he had just begun secretly dating another co-worker too.


Aftermath: At that point I was done with him, but I warned her about him because I had known her for years and felt that she was even more naive than I was.
