was in a relationship with a hip hop singer ‘wannabe’ so it was all about girls, alcohol and drugs. I was so attached (for some reason) and he knew the right things to say at times but he was emotionally abusive and a playa. when I left him years ago he tried to worm himself back into my life but i wasnt going that route no more.
So what’s the most ridiculous relationship you were in? that has you having the ‘what was i thinking’ moment every time you look back. those toxic, not good for ya one

I wouldn’t say that I was in a relationship with this guy, but I really liked him. I wanted to be with him. He used to play mind games and made me believe he felt the same way. Problem is that I KNEW he could never be faithful. He did end up getting a girl pregnant while we were talking/hanging out. Silly me was looking past the fact that he was an alcoholic too. So glad I walked away when I did.

I guess I would have to say one in which I was dating a guy whose beliefs and values were the polar opposite of mine. I was just out of high school, and we were incredibly attracted to each other, especially intellectually. We really enjoyed the relationship and had respect for each other, but we essentially were two trains traveling on separate tracks. There really was no way we could have ever ended up together. However, I don’t think either of us has any negative feelings toward the other, and we both learned something from the relationship, so I can’t in good conscience call it ridiculous. Yet, it is the one that came to mind for me to use in answering this question.

okay, this is going to sound mean, but I went out with a guy for about 3 months who had spina bifida, so he was 5″4, I’m 5″7. That didn’t bother me at ALL, he was cute, funny, confident, in a band, everything. I was very drawn to him, he seemed to be a life of the party.
But he quickly became mean, and would put me down, and tell me he could have anyone, and I was so lucky to have him. And never gave me the time of day.
I ddin’t get it… I wasn’t thinking I needed special treatment because I was going out with someone who was physically different, but I thought he would really treasure me, like I want ANY guy to do, you know? But he seemed to always be bossing me around, and trying to proove he was in charge and talk over me and stuff like that.
I broke up with him because my NOW fiancee confessed his love for me for the 2 years we’d known each other and couldn’t stand the thought of me being with anyone else. I felt the same way, but I never thought he saw me at all! he proposed 2 years later, so I guess he meant it.
haha.. Am I a terrible person? My Fiance stole me from my then boyfriend… hahaha

@silkspectre94: Not terrible. Your ex was verbally abusive & controlling. I think you should thank your Fiance, and give yourself a pat on the back. You dodged a bullet!

Haha, oh man.. This is embarrassing: The over-privledged, alcoholic, severly bipolar rich boy. Generally very manipulative, self-involved, and emotionally abusive.
One of the last times I saw him, he sort of crashed my (technically they were sort of friends) best friend’s birthday party (An all-girls night out), cried in the corner awkwardly, and then went to the bathroom where HE FLED OUT THE BATHROOM WINDOW. No joke. That happened. He then texted my friend saying he left her $20 in mailbox to buy her a birthday drink…
Yeah, I’m still pretty much the laughing stock of my friends for that one. But hey, at least it made it ALOT easier for DH! Darling Husband is the most amazing man ever, but my friends didn’t even give him a hard time because “Well, you haven’t left out the window yet!”

@OctBride-2012: I’m kind of jealous. Is that weird?
I’ve had a few. One was when I was 16, he was 21 and in the navy.. and in another state. It was weird. He had purple hair on the weekends and I liked it.
I also dated a gay guy. He had really really really really good abs though. Totally worth it. He’s still one of my best friends.
I also dated a dude with really long gross dread locks. He is the only one that my dad literally pinned up against a wall an threatened. lol

@Mrs.LemonDrop: omg i can so relate. he was a bi polar too sometimes missing meds, threatening to kill himself and his mom was blaming me for not being there *sigh. ripped off phones off the wall of my university residence and stole a motor bike and crashed it. lol he was just a disaster!!!!

Oh…young love. So when I was with my ex who was going into the marines, we were in a LDR. He called me one day and said he wanted to try and date another girl for a week that he met, and then see how he felt about me afterward. Being 17 and stupid, I decided to wait and wouldn’t you know, he didn’t want me any more. I lost about 15 lbs in 2 weeks out of sheer depression. I was sick, wouldn’t leave the house…it was just bad. And for what? A pathetic wannabe. Oi…
Ah well, all roads led to FI! <3

Sooo one of my friends was shot by her very recent ex yesterday. He went super crazy after they broke up and when she came home yesterday to pack her apartment (she’s moving next week) he was standing there with a gun. She somehow convinced him to get in the car with her so she could talk to him and she drove to a firestation, got out, and he fired six shots at her, three of which struck her in the neck/shoulder. Luckily she is stable, but WTF!! They are 20 years old! I can’t believe this.

Oh god. Mine was in highschool I was 16 dating a guy who was 22. I thought he was AMAZING and the BEST everything. He had a nice car, nice apartment everything the whole package. Except he acted like a ‘thug’. He met my parents one day and my dad FLIPPED OUT. Turns out he was 35 not 22. Still to this day don’t know how my dad found out ( knowing him he probably asked for ID lol) But all I know is my dad almost killed him and I’m SOOO Thankful I didn’t sleep with him because about a week later he was at my school picking up another girl!!
