1-800-GET-LOST

relationship

I was 18 years old and in my very first relationship. The person I was dating was a year older than I was. Neither of us drove. He lived in the next town. A mutual friend would actually drive us on our dates and we frequently double dated with her. One day, after going to see a movie, my boyfriend thought a romantic place to go would be the McDonalds inside of a walmart. It was not my ideal spot but we all humored him. After he spent a lot of time complaining about his McDonalds not being served to him on the spot and the amount of fries he received my friend and I walked around. He was being a baby and kind of a douche-bag, so we actually left him at Walmart. It was sadly about a forty minute drive away from his hometown. (We basically lived in the middle of no where.) After we left him, we called his mom and told him what he had done and that we had left him there. And his parents had to go and pick him up. We broke up shortly after. Our entire relationship lasted about three months.

Kissing Cousins

I was a late bloomer. I was so excited to finally have a boyfriend. Everything was going great for the first few dates. Things were getting pretty hot and we where both into each other. Then he suddenly broke it off. I found out later that we were third cousins. His parents told him and that’s why he ended things. How embarrassing. I guess if I went to family reunions, I’d have know this.

One of the worst dates I ever went on was when I was in high school. A cute boy from my high school band had asked me out to see a movie and then go out to dinner. He was a gymnast and incredibly cute so I was very excited about the date. We had planned to go see a romantic comedy, but when we arrived at the movie theatre, the comedy was sold out and we ended up seeing a Will Ferrell. It was incredibly crude and crass and especially on a first date, it made us both really uncomfortable. We sat through the movie not being able to look at each other and hoping that it would end soon, obviously not what you’re looking for on a date. Afterwards, we went out to dinner. I ordered first and got a small steak with a baked potato since steak is what the restaurant was known for. What I didn’t realize was that gymnasts are always worried about staying slim and constantly watching their weight. He usually ate very small portions, especially when eating out at a restaurant. He ordered his meal after me and got a small side salad with dressing on the side. I thought he was joking at first, but then I realized that he was serious and my face turned bright red. So, of course when my food arrived, I could barely eat any of it and I was so embarrassed that I had ordered more than he had. Surprisingly, he did ask me out again and we dated for a few months, but that first date gives us a lot of laughs even today.

When I started dating Andrew, we didn’t spend a whole lot of time together, but he seemed great. After awhile, we started dating very seriously and I would regularly spend nights at his house. This is how I discovered that he had some issues to work out before being ready for a relationship. After calling me one night because he had drunkenly locked himself out of his house, I helped him inside and witnessed a bizarre series of events. In his drunken state, he fell down into the floor, demanded that I retrieve him a hamburger from wherever was still open at 2am, and when I refused he asked his dog why I was mad at him. He continued a conversation with his dog until he began to cry. Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly impressed and the relationship didn’t last very much longer after that night.

Why I ordered 100 beers

When I was in college I dated a girl for a 2 months, she didn’t see a future in it so she dumped me. Then about 6 weeks later I ran into her in a bar. We got to talking and dancing, then while on the dance floor she grabbed me pushed me up against the wall and tried to remove my tonsils with her tongue. Well her friends had to go so we agreed to go to a movie in 2 days. I picked her up and she barely spoke but we went to the movie anyway, about half way through I went to put my arm around her and she got up and moved over 2 seats. Well I decided to cut my losses, when the movie ended I walked outside and said have a good life and left her standing out in front of the theater. I walked around the corner to my favorite bar where it was nickle draw night and slapped down a fiver on the bar and said give me 100 beers. I then called 3 of my buddies and commenced to drink all 100 beers while discussing the complexities of women.

I was really excited to go to our school’s talent show. It was a dress up event and I had been asked by Larry. He was a nice guy, and everyone seemed to think that he liked me. That is, everyone except for him. He actually liked someone else, as he made obvious throughout the night. We dressed up as celebrities, and I had a very nice dress on. He never once told me that I looked nice at all. We sat on our ride to the event in silence mostly. He was too distracted to notice that I was sitting right next to him. At the event, we sat down with some of his friends. Watching the actual event wasn’t too bad. At intermission, he just left! All of his friends left, and I was sitting there all by myself. Fortunately, my friend Bob was there, so I went to talk to him. I have now been dating Bob for almost two years. Most people wouldn’t be very happy if their date was like Larry and didn’t talk to them, but it turned out to be the start of something beautiful for me.

Some guy I had a crush on all 4 years of high school finally asked me out on a date. I was so excited, I was telling friends and family about the good news, and losing sleep over it every night from the excitement! We talked for a week, until it was the night of our date. We planned out that he was going to pick me up at 8, and we would go for a dinner and a movie. I was looking very forward to this because I have liked this guy for so long. So we went out to a very fancy restaurant, the date was going great! I couldnt of asked for it to go any better! We were at the restaurant for about an hour before his phone rang off the hook! Every time he answered the call, and it sounded like he was fighting with his mom or something. I thought it was very rude he would even answer the phone during our date, let alone fight with someone for 25 minutes right in front of me! Anyway, so after we got done eating we left and we were on our way to the movie. His phone rang about 3 more times and he ignored it. I was extremely surprised when we did not pull into the movies, but we pulled into some random drive way that I didn’t even know. A girl our age came out and him and her started fighting, and she looked at me and got me involved by calling me very rude names, saying I was trying to take her boyfriend! I asked him what was going on and it turned out that was his girlfriend, and he asked me out on a date to get her jealous because they were fighting! I had to get my own ride home from her house.

David was a great kisser. He really knew how to pull you in close and give you a passionate, roll your eyes to the back of the head kiss. Heck even my mom was jealous when she saw us sucking face in her living room. David made a lot of promises that a naive 18 yr old girl about to graduate from high school would fall for. Especially one who had a bad complexion, thick glasses and an introverted personality. With his dark curly hair, solid build, and olive skin most girls would drool. add to that he promised we could go over his aunt’s horse farm after prom. What girl’s jaw wouldn’t drop. Alas, David was a lady’s man and his promises were mere pipe dreams. He “fell in love” with someone else a week or so later and I ended up asking a friend to prom instead…a friend who eventually became my husband of 15 years. So girls keep your chins up. If the first fish gets away keep fishing because there’s plenty more.

the other man

This young woman and I were both attracted to each other and we went on several dates. She seemed interested in me and I was interested in her. At the time I thought it may last for a while. She seemed to be having fun. Then one day out of the blue a man called my house and said that he was this young woman’s boyfriend and threatened to hurt me if I continued to see her. I was in shock. She later admitted to having another guy and laughed about it. It hurt my feelings quite badly. Our friendship and relationship subsequently ended.

Memorial Day breakup

February 12th, 2012 by Twenty Timers (Long Island, NY)

I thought I met the girl I was going to marry in college. We met during my junior year, her senior year (although she stayed an extra semester). From the beginning our relationship was strong both romantically and emotionally. For 2 years everything went very well. After she finished school, she got a nice job in Manhattan. Nothing major for a while, but all of sudden there were hints things were not right. I figured it was just a hiccup we would work through. We celebrated our 2-year anniversary in April and the sparks were again visible. Then all of sudden, everything sort of plummeted! I had graduated at this point and was planning on looking for a job near where she lived and we would get an apartment together. She however was reluctant and on Memorial Day, we were at a her family party and things were not right. We went for a drive. She broke up with me. The worst part, I was absolutely miserable and had no escape. She drove. I was drinking and she couldn’t take me back to my house on Long Island. I was completely stuck. Lost and wanted to blow up. The absolute worst break up and the worst way and time for anybody to do it. HORRIBLE!
