The reason he doesn’t trust authority figures is due to being circumcised at birth. Quote: “They’re just trying to keep me down.”
— Lesson Learned
Aftermath: Stayed with him for a total of 1.5 years. No excuse, really.

best of secrets!
On our one-month anniversary, he emailed me to cancel our dinner date because his friend was in the hospital. I found out later that this “friend” was his ex that he still wasn’t over, and the “hospital” was a mental institution. She had come to school after an all-night drug bender and started acting so crazy, they had to handcuff her to a desk. When he heard about what happened, he banged his head against the wall and made it look like an accident, so he could be sent home from school and then go see her.
Aftermath: It was over the moment he confessed to me that during his visit, he supported her “both mentally and physically.”
best of sex
After journeying across country for a visit, he tried to go down on me and instead stuck his balls in my face. When I realized the musky smell was from lack of hygiene, I slept on the couch the rest of the visit.
Aftermath: When I got home, we exchanged a few texts but he got the hint with my lack of communication and disgust when he mentioned having sex with him again.
best of weird
Moved in with my fiancé when I was 19. He started banging his head against the wall at night and having weird blubbering fits. Then he slit his throat in the bathroom. While in the psych ward (where I visited faithfully and allowed him to blame me for his crazy), he cheated on me and then wanted to date us both at the same time!
Aftermath: I did go on a few dates with them—and then found my self-esteem. He is now heavily medicated and still single.

best of manners
We had been out on a few dates and I wanted him to meet my best friend and her boyfriend. We all decided to meet at a nice restaurant. Everything was going fine until he opened his phone and started showing my best friend all the porn he had downloaded.
Aftermath: It was over two weeks later.
