Not sure if there is a post like this already but I want to hear about the worst duds you ever dated before you met the perfect guy! Tell me your stories and we can collectively heave a sigh of relief over dodging these bullets!
Ex horror #1: He was a fraternity boy. I was the nerdy girl who spent Fridays playing Apples to Apples with friends. I thought it was like a John Hughes movie come to life. For the first month he was nothing but sweetness. We met right before Christmas break and I ended up spending like $80 buying him this jacket with his Letters on it. He got me nothing and didn’t even thank me for the gift.
He was super rich yet would never even spring for meals out. It was embarassing. He started smoking pot daily and would ask me for money to buy weed. He never invited me to his fraternities parties and would only visit me at like 2am. He finally broke up with me after 2 months and would still call me after the bars closed.
The kicker is that after I started dating my current boyfriend he would continue to text me. The best one was literally on the day of my 6 month anniversary with boyfriend. He texts me at 3am asking for an “emergency blow job” (his exact words). I shut him down and he kept asking “Please, just one emergency blow job, we don’t have to even kiss, it’s not like that’s really cheating”. In my defense he had a really nice car.
Ex Horror #2 I started dating this guy at a really low point. He was someone I’d known in high school and stopped talking to. He friended me on facebook 3 years later in college. We started talking. I was home for spring break so we hung out. I ended up agreeing to date him because like I said, low point. After a couple days (long distance!) he told me he loved me! After 2 weeks he told me he started planning our wedding and told me he wanted to propose in a month. WHAT!? We’d seen each other ONCE in three years. Oh did I mention he was suicidal and told me if I ever broke up with him he’d kill himself or that his mom would gauge my eyes out?
I broke up with him the next time I was back home (thank god our Easter break so quickly follows spring break!) We dated for three weeks total. Afterwards he kept texting me with suicide threats. One night I lost my phone for 5 hours. I found it only to have like 35 texts from him ending in one that said “I’m killing myself now. Goodbye”.
I called my then fwb and asked him to come over because I was pretty sure my ex had killed himself. I then paused and was like “not sure this is a good time but I’d like to date you”. He came over and spent the night. Ex didn’t kill himself. (I later talked him into admitting himself into a pysch ward, he is doing much better now but we don’t keep in touch). And I got my current boyfriend, the fwb in the story, (almost 3 years strong now!) out of that situation.
Now that I’ve shared my cringeworthy stories I’d love to hear yours.
