best of secrets!
On our one-month anniversary, he emailed me to cancel our dinner date because his friend was in the hospital. I found out later that this “friend” was his ex that he still wasn’t over, and the “hospital” was a mental institution. She had come to school after an all-night drug bender and started acting so crazy, they had to handcuff her to a desk. When he heard about what happened, he banged his head against the wall and made it look like an accident, so he could be sent home from school and then go see her.
Aftermath: It was over the moment he confessed to me that during his visit, he supported her “both mentally and physically.”
Not only did he cheat, but with “professional” women…
Aftermath: I am happily disease-free, and in someone else’s monogamous bed.

I was dating a guy long distance and we had visited a couple of times. He came up and told me he had something important to tell me. It turns out that he had sexually molested two of his own children. His therapist told him that she wouldn’t let him out of the state again unless he told me everything.
Aftermath: He got mad that I didn’t want to start a family with him (after three dates). We haven’t spoken since.

I went to pick her up to go see a movie and went on her computer to check times. She left an AIM conversation open with her ex-boyfriend ending with them exchanging “I love yous.” I closed the window before she saw what I was looking at.
Aftermath: I confronted her about it a week later. I wanted to dump her and she deflected the blame on me saying it was because she wouldn’t sleep with me.

My quarterly savings account statement arrived, $800 light. I’d put his name on it for a just in case emergency (like my death). When asked about the withdrawal, his response was, “I was going to put it back before you found out.”
Aftermath: Three months later, I threw him out.
