best of manners

Despite his jobless, irresponsible, lazy habits, I thought it was sweet that he made fresh coffee for me every morning. It was over when I realized, I can also make my own coffee.


Aftermath: I asked him to move out and within two months, I had cleaned out the garage, finished painting two bedrooms, hired a yard team, and met a nice man who pays his own mortgage and takes me out for coffee.

best of weird

We were together for eight years. On our second wedding anniversary, he told me he was moving out and wanted a divorce. Then he asked if we could still date afterward.


Aftermath: The last time I voluntarily saw him was when we signed the divorce papers. Single life is hard for me, but it’s better than being married to him.

“Muffin Top”

best of chemistry

He explained that his friends at work liked to grab his “muffin top” that hangs over his jeans to tease him.


I allowed him to take me on a few more dinner dates because he had good taste in restaurants.

“If, then”


She cried, “If I can’t have you when you’re sober, then you can’t have me when you’re drunk!”  The next day, she promised never to cross the bounds of our friendship again. Needless to say, she did but I wasn’t having it and moved on.


Aftermath: She’s back with the guy she broke up with me for, hopefully happy. I’m so happy with my new girl, who is everything I could ever want sober or otherwise.

“Another Girl”


He asked my roommate for another girl’s number. And later lied about it.


Aftermath: It was over before that even happened. I later found out (not to my surprise) that he just wanted to get with me. Luckily I didn’t give him any.
