We were laying in bed talking when his phone rang. He got up and walked outside to answer it. I got up and went to stand by the door to see who he was talking to. I heard him say, “Didn’t you get the flowers I sent you? Well, what? You can’t say thank you?” In the year we had been dating he never so much as took me out on a nice date! I confronted him, and he kept saying, “You just aren’t good enough. You’re not pretty. I want her back.”


Aftermath: I left that night, taking everything I had bought for the house. I’m now with a great guy, who thinks I’m great, pretty, and good enough. The ex still calls me from blocked numbers. I guess he thinks I’ll be there when he’s lonely. Truly a loser.

“What Happens in Vegas”


She went to Las Vegas with her best friend. I was wary. My cousin kept telling me she was going to cheat because that’s what girls do in Vegas. I go to her MySpace page only to find a comment from her best friend saying she wishes she could’ve gone. I didn’t hear from her all weekend. She sent me a text on her way home.


Aftermath: When I asked her if the friend and her had a good trip, she lied and said they had fun. I broke up with her right there through email and told her I knew she was lying.

“Family Plan”

best of secrets!

I was dating an older, successful military man who pursued me for a year before I relented. He had to travel often, and would fly me to see him. Then I got a phone call from his wife.


Aftermath: Turns out he had girlfriends all around the country who he fly to see him, but his wife doesn’t believe in divorce and they have two children together already. I sent him a final e-mail asking him how he’ll handle it when his daughter has men like him using her. He still pays for my cell phone, which is on his family plan!

“Sleep Around”


After learning he had been cheating on me for several months, I confronted him and told him it was over. He responded that I was crazy and just making up excuses so that I could sleep around with other men.


Aftermath: We lasted about two weeks of him cheating after my confrontation. I hear he and the girl are getting married this spring.

“Update your contacts”


After hanging out for a few weeks at his apartment on weeknights, I asked him to hang out in public on the weekend. He said yes, then never called. We got in a huge argument on text & he then called me another girl’s name. When called out, his response “My bad. Lol. Don’t be upset. An honest mistake.”


Aftermath: He texted me another month later, asking if I was interested in hanging out again. Told him I wasn’t interested and reminded him who I was just in case he hadn’t updated his contacts yet. His response? “Whatever,” then not another word, ever.
