“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.”

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.

“You Can’t”

best of weird

I’d been with this guy for 9 months or so, and things had been going downhill for a while. One day I was finally fed up, and called him to break up. He actually said, “You can’t break up with me. I won’t let you.” My response was “Well, you really have no choice in the matter. We’re done.”

Aftermath: He continued to tell people we were together, including mutual friends. They thought I was being terrible to him, even though I told them what had happened. I lost a lot of friends over the fact that he refused to believe that I had, in fact, broken up with him. But considering the guy, I’m glad I broke contact completely.

“Next”

best of weird

I had just arrived to pick her up for our first date when her little boy ran over to me and said, “My mom says you are going to be my next dad.” Yes, he said, “Next.” We went out that night and never again.

—Dace

Aftermath: I ran into her a year or so later and found out she had gotten married but was getting a divorce, after only a year. Her kid’s new daddy number 4.

“Seriously?”

weird

I told my boyfriend of a year that I re-enrolled to finish my degree. He said, “That’s a great idea—did you think of that yourself?” I became mute with shock at his insult, uttered in sincerity.

—insulted

Aftermath: I moved across the country to finish my degree.

“Clingy”

weird

After 6 months of dating he was getting way too clingy. He was already talking about getting a place together and “our” future. Me, on the other hand, I was enjoying being young! If I was out with other friends he would text and/or call me the entire night. I told him that I would call him when I got home, but the texts continued. Later that night we fought about him being so attached and he decided to cheat on me the next day.

—Jill

Aftermath: Needless to say, when I found out that was the end of him. I went to his house around 9 the next morning to get some stuff that I had left there and the little tramp was there. Haven’t spoke to him since.
