best of chemistry
After sex, I thought it would be a good idea to take Plan B and made my boyfriend go get it from the pharmacy. Upon his return, he told me not to take it and that having a baby would be fun. Or if not, he hoped we could rent one for the day.
Aftermath: Two months later….I realized his incessant need for marriage and children after 4 months, at age 24, was a little too much for me. The kicker? I broke up with him and he claimed he had been planned on breaking up with me all along.
I got home from school one evening and left my bag inside my car, just for a minute. I passed an “out of place” stranger while walking into my apartment. He said hello, so did I. When I got back to my car, someone had smashed the window, stolen my bag and wallet. I called to tell my boyfriend what had happened–that I was scared because I suspected it was that stranger who knew what I looked like and where I lived. The boyfriend’s response: “I’m doing the dishes.”
Aftermath: I stayed with him for at least another year and a half knowing each day I didn’t love him. Why, I really don’t know. It was awful and devoid of passion, love and even friendship. I don’t care if I ever see him again!

Not only did he cheat, but with “professional” women…
Aftermath: I am happily disease-free, and in someone else’s monogamous bed.

During the 2009 Golden Globes there was a tribute to Steven Spielberg. He said, “Spielberg didn’t direct Jaws.” I said “What?!” He said, “He may have produced it, but he didn’t direct it.”
Pause. “He didn’t direct The Color Purple, either.”
Aftermath: I moved out.

best of secrets!
I was dating a guy long distance and we had visited a couple of times. He came up and told me he had something important to tell me. It turns out that he had sexually molested two of his own children. His therapist told him that she wouldn’t let him out of the state again unless he told me everything.
Aftermath: He got mad that I didn’t want to start a family with him (after three dates). We haven’t spoken since.
