“Should Have”

best of weird

Long distance relationship for 1.5 years. Lived together for a year and few months. I should have left when I had to sneak and take birth control pills because he had the crazy thought that if we had a baby that we would be together forever… I should have left when I had to start hiding the battery, phone and my cellphone in 3 different places at night so that he couldn’t check my cellphone to see if I was talking to other men. He had to go when he started sniffing my underwear every time I took them off.

Aftermath: After I finally got him to move out, he moved a few blocks away from where I lived. Two weeks later, a hurricane blew me to Texas and him to Georgia. After he realized that I wasn’t letting him come to Texas to be with me, he bought a house for us in Georgia that he’s still waiting for me to be a resident in….NOT!!!

“Minor Accident”

weird

I moved across the country to a city I hated with him and was stressed about finding a job. Instead of being supportive, he nagged me constantly and refused to come to community events so I could meet neighbors and network. I was so unhappy that I finally started seeing a therapist. Two weeks after we moved, he was in a minor car accident and I knew we were done when I had no desire to take care of him or be his chauffeur.

—Meems

Aftermath: I ended it within a few weeks, moved back to my hometown. I’m now almost done with a Master’s Degree and couldn’t be happier being single. He just got married to the girl he started dating 1.5 months after I ended things. We don’t talk, but his friends still like me better than his new wife.

“Knight in Fuzzy Carpet”

best of weird

My parents just carpeted our downstairs and my boyfriend at the time asked me if we had any carpet left. So I said yes and gave it to him without thinking what he needed it for. The next day he showed up to school wearing the carpet in the form of armor. And wore it for the entire day.

—Shauna

Aftermath: We broke up soon after this happened.

“New Car”

weird

We had been married for 3 months. It was the exciting, blissful “Honeymoon Period”—all love and great sex. One day, I came home from work and there was an ugly little brand new white car in the driveway and the down payment money for our house was gone.

—Rhonda

Aftermath: Who pays cash for a car, honestly? What was he thinking? He thought he could just do that without mentioning it to me and all would blissfully continue? I don’t even get a say in the color of the ugly piece o’ crap?
Buh-bye!!

“Half-Jewish”

best of weird

We had been dating about a month when I told him that I was half Jewish. He got a weird look on his face, but didn’t say anything. The next day, he told me that he couldn’t see me anymore because he wanted to be a Baptist preacher one day. He couldn’t be with a girl with a Jewish heritage, even though I didn’t practice the religion. I guess we shouldn’t have had all that dirty sex if he was to be a man of God.

—Melanie

Aftermath: We still had to work together for a few months after that, and then he moved out of town. I haven’t seen him since. I wonder if he’s a preacher now?
