best of manners
I had been dating a younger man for several years. I had never been so in sync with anyone before and he felt the same way. He said: “This is the most incredible relationship; it’s beyond my wildest dreams.” I agreed. But I knew it was over when he said he loved me so much but he was doubtful because (his very words) “I don’t want to get stuck with an old lady.” Wow, words of love from Mr. Sensitive!
Aftermath: It turns out I didn’t get stuck with an idiot.
best of clashes
My wife of 20 years cheated the 1st time with her boss & the 2nd time with our Roman Catholic priest. She cried & begged me to stay. I did & watched her spend all her savings to nice me up while I saved every cent. Now she is broke & brokenhearted and can’t pay next months rent. She will be evicted. I’m leaving this weekend fully satisfied and vindicated.
Aftermath: I won’t even say good-bye. She’ll have to figure it out.

best of sex
We were hanging out by my firepit with one of his female friends and it was time to go. His friend said she would go wait in the car so we could say goodbye. Then my boyfriend said (in front of her) that we should go into the woods and do it. I was in shock considering she was right there and it was my parents house. Then he had the balls to say, “No? I guess that part of our relationship is over.” Like I would’ve done that before? Keep thinking!
Aftermath: He got busted that night for driving buzzed with booze in the car. Things weren’t the same after that and we broke it off a few months later.

Two years after deciding to stop working and go back to school, she announced that she was quitting school, but “didn’t really want to work full-time,” either. She then began berating me for working seven days a week to support her, her kids and her live-in mother. Then she cheated on me with a guy who worked at the goddamn post office.
Aftermath: I kicked her to the curb, then laughed in her face a year later when she asked for a second chance.

best of secrets!
On our first date. I kept getting a “creepy uncle” vibe from him. He was a few years older than I was, and spent most of the night telling me about how he had lost his wife and child to a drunk driver a few years earlier. When he dropped me off, he spent several minutes trying to talk himself into my house. I refused to let him in and lost his number.
Aftermath: I learned from a mutual friend that his wife and child were alive and well, living 2 states over while he finished off his degree.
