“Crying”

weird

I knew it was over when I cried. Not because my relationship was failing, I cried because I thought my coworker was going to be fired.

—Nix

Aftermath: I never cried over the breakup. I smiled because I was, and still am, deeply in love.

“Diamond”

best of weird

We went on a lot of dates and always had fun. A month or so later, as we lay in bed after he slept with me for the first time, he asked me if I wanted to see the engagement ring his ex-fiance returned to him a few months before. Then he started talking about how he didn’t want to get rid of it in case she changed her mind.

—SarahJane

Aftermath: I feel sorry for him but not for myself.

“Morning Glory”

best of weird

We had gone on a few dates, but I made it clear that I wanted to take things slow physically, so we hadn’t done anything beyond kissing. He got too drunk to drive home one night, so I said he could stay over. The next morning, I woke up to him wide awake and dry humping me from behind.

Aftermath: I told him to leave and never talked to him again.

“Hospital”

weird

I rang my boyfriend up and told him I had been rushed into hospital late last night. His response? Okay.

—emily

Aftermath: He claims he was confused, not good enough. Still deciding how to break it.

“Wizard of Oz”

best of weird

I belong to a dating site that specialized in husky men. One day I was contacted by a guy who wanted to chat. I read his profile and thought he was cute, so we talked. One time I asked him what his favorite book was. The responding message started: “Wizard of Oz. I don’t know why I’m telling you this, but I was an orphan and had a very unhappy childhood.”

—Nilmandir

Aftermath: It took me 24 hours to respond. After insisting that I chat with him on Yahoo so we could talk more “intimately,” I blocked him. I was creeped out.
