“The King of Omission”


I spent the last 3 years in graduate school while my special man snuck around and lied to me repeatedly while I was writing my thesis. One month after I graduated, he “dropped the nuclear bomb”. Five months of his lying. Now he denies, deflects, minimizes, accuses me of lying; he cannot take responsibility. He feigns obsession with spirituality and God, which makes it all the worse. He is trying to set me up as the bad guy. I just finished my masters degree for “us.”I feel annihilated.


Aftermath: I am currently trying to recover, and it is not going very well. Every time I talk with him, I feel like I want to die. I am still looking for work and will probably have to leave my home in 3 weeks. He doesn’t care. My long-earned trust of him shattered. Unbearable. He is happy as a clam. Pure evil.

“Too much, too fast.”


She started coming to my band’s gigs. She was 7 years older than me. We went to a movie… once! Suddenly I started getting cards in the mail with hand-written messages like, “I think I’m in love!” After ONE MOVIE. I, as gently as possible, broke up with her. Her girlfriend was there and angrily kicked me out.


Aftermath: Six months later, she came to a gig with her NEW HUSBAND, whom she’d met 4 months earlier. Definitely dodged a bullet.

“Test Your Goods”

best of weird

One of the things that I loved most about him was how close he was to his family, especially his dad. But one night at dinner, he told me that he had something important to ask me. I never expected it to be, “Would you mind if my dad tested out your goods first? He really knows what I like”. And he wasn’t joking.


Aftermath: I got up and left right about the time he started telling me his dad’s availability. I changed my number and email after his father tried contacting me several times about setting up a “date.”


“Sunglasses during sex”


I was talking to this guy for about 2 months on the phone. When I finally met him, he had on sunglasses and a baseball hat at 10:00 at night. I asked him if his glasses were prescription. He said yes. One thing led to another and we ended up having sex. I couldn’t believe he kept on his hat and glasses. I realized he was hiding a lazy eye.


Aftermath: He kept texting me but I never responded.

“You Suck”


It was over when he asked me if I thought he was crazy after two weeks of dating. Well, yes, a little. Our first fight was a lot of him saying “I love you”, “I hate you” and “you suck.” Really? At 50? I was done.


Aftermath: Little did I know the incessant, insane calls and stalking would last almost longer than the dating. I am soooo happy being single!
