Sometimes in a dating relationship or budding romance you come to the realization that it’s not going to work out. Things look really promising and progressed nicely until that moment when….well things just go off the rails. This is basically the moment when something happens that kind of dashes all hope of a good thing happening.
In a oddly hilarious website and book, Tales of Romantic Dead Ends, explores those moments when a romance ends. Some are funny, some are sad, but they are all real. I think there’s something about seeing fellow soldiers on the battlefield of love that makes you feel a little better about your own relationship failures.
A lot of us have to go through these crazy, funny, outrageous moments when a romance ends, but we are wiser and stronger because of them. Perhaps a little worse for the wear? When you think about those misadventures you have had, when did you know it was over? (Maybe she popped up without calling first?! Ha).
What are your top “This is SO over” moments and what do you think you learned from the experience?
The one that sticks out for me? First date with a doctor from my hometown. We are leaving his garage and a very angry woman is standing on his front lawn staring at me like I had 3 heads. I knew it was over when he lied and said he didn’t know who she was. I learned that I can get really upset when someone I’m dating insults my intelligence. Seriously, it’s a thing with me.
Oh, I could go on and on with these! Your turn!
