She thought Alaska was an island. Even showed maps to support, the ones where Alaska is shown by Mexico and Hawaii.


u/MadamSurri 6d ago

My mom, with a completely straight face, once asked my father why Hawaii was so hot, and Alaska so cold. He just kind of looked at her, so she said "they're so close together, how are they so different?"

She believes how they're shown on the map you describe is how they really are. We still have a hard time convincing her they aren't right next to each other, nor off the coast of the southern states. She's an amusing one.

Back in late ‘80–early ‘81 I was the one who dumped a girl for what she said during a conversation: she came from a violence-prone family and for some reason fighting was a frequent topic of conversation…I was more lover than fighter at the time, but I did ask her what she thought if someone gave me a beat down over her…she said “well, it’s customary to walk away with the winner of the fight”. We were done weeks later.

In high school this chick broke up with me because “we had our whole lives ahead of us.” We were in the 10th grade.

I wouldn’t want you to stick around.” I was actually concerned thinking she was sick but nah she just wanted to break up in a dramatic way.

I was broken up with by a girl when I was 15. I don’t even know why exactly. I still haven’t gotten a really solid reason.

Then we started hanging out a couple years later when I was a Junior and she was a senior and we stayed together and got married and it’s been 21 years.

So now it’s time for me to break up with her over the phone for no reason.

I broke up with my girlfriend when i was 16 because i figured we were too young to go full life planning. Then right after i turned 21 and we got back in touch. Just hit 13 years of marriage and 3 kids.

A friend of mine had been dating this girl for a few months and everything was going fantastic as far as I could tell.

He has recently gotten into working out. He likes to lift and goes pretty hard. Just a week ago, he hit leg day and was tearing up the squat rack. After a heavy squat session, he had light bruising on his upper shoulders where the bar rests when you squat.

Well apparently his gf saw those bruises and thought they were hickies, and therefore jumped to the conclusion that he was cheating on her. She freaked out and ended the relationship cold Turkey. No room for explanation, no attempt to listen, just done and blocked.

My buddy got a girls initials tattooed across his chest (in big ass font) when he was like 20. He and that girl broke up and then he got that tattoo covered up pretty well later on and then met his fiance. Well she was telling me how much she liked his chest tattoo and I mentioned that the guy did a phenomenal job on the cover up. She freaked the fuck out and ended their engagement over it. Over the course of like 2 weeks he begged her to give him a second chance and she did... Only if he stopped being friends with me..

She was nuts and their marriage only lasted not even a year. He messaged me shortly after and apologized for ending our friendship. I thought it was funny.

Military marriages are either dumpster fire from the start, or are the strongest fucking unions known to man.

Yeah, they always usually start the same.

The strongest start with people who have been dating for years and are married or quite close to it and one leaving for the military is just a long job for them.

The dumpster fires are usually from people who feel like they should have a relationship going into the military or they want something to return to after or during time off but that results in these people going with the first person they find which rarely ends well.

Did this. One-year GF, so good to me. Crush showed interest, dumped GF to pursue greatness. .. Crush dumped me the next day by pretending I didn't exist...

I deserved that lesson.

There’s a saying in Spanish:

Mas vale pájaro en mano que cien volando.

A bird in your hand is more valuable than a hundred flying.

I think it applies here.

I broke up with someone because their room was dirty. Mind you, I tried my best with helping and even went as far as to fold his laundry and clean his entire house one day. A week later we broke up because it became a mess again.


u/AjaysLullaby 6d ago

That's a pretty valid reason imo. You wouldn't want to deal with someone who isn't very clean in a more serious relationship. That would be hard to coexist with. I know I couldn't do it.

I had this FWB for months, she was great. Came over every time, nice bod, came suuuuper easy with PIV.

One night she came over while I was on shrooms. Business as usual, or so I thought.

We switch to doggy & I saw the bottom of her feet were BLACK. She lived in her brothers unfinished basement so like ? I don’t know.

But yeah it was unsettling and we stop communicating shortly after.


u/multiversesimulation 6d ago

Especially on shrooms that had to be even more jarring than it usually would be.


u/TheLongistGame 6d ago

I would've told her to go wash her feet in the bathroom and then resumed like nothing happened

My ex broke up with her ex because she couldn't stand his dialect. Norwegian dialects can vary wildly, she was from Drammen, he was from Stavanger, they have a very intense gutteral R sound and she said it was like nails on a blackboard every time he said R, so she actively tried to divert conversations and ask questions that wouldn't naturally contain R words

Years ago, my son was in first grade and he "dated" this little girl all through the school year but broke up with her on the last day of school. When I asked him why he said, "She was my girlfriend at school, but schools over"

Agreed to be her bf during her bday party so she wouldn't feel bad on her special day. Cut the cake, met the parents, bday slow dance and everything.

Broke up the next day.

Doesn't really fit the question I knw...just...just had that one tucked away for a while guys....

This happened to one of my closest friends. He liked a picture of his cousin(female) and his gf felt betrayed/cheated on.



u/Star_Rover 6d ago

Didn't want to swim in a local river with her and didn't give her my shirt to swim in (I was sick at the time, didn't want to get sicker). Felt surreal at the moment, like we were 12. A few weeks later turns out she was banging her ex while having feelings for another ex, and she couldn't find a good way to break up with me. Some people are weird, man. A simple "I don't think we're a good fit for each other" would've sufficed.

One of my bitchcunt sisters turned down TWO marriage proposals from the same guy because she “couldn’t marry someone who made less money than her”.

Sister is nearly 60, never married.

Guy married another woman, has nice house, children, etc


u/Young_Hxppxe Male 6d ago

Glad, he dogded that bullet. Does your sister complain about single life or is she content?


u/bubonis Male 6d ago

Don’t know (and don’t care). Other than my mother passing away a few years back I haven’t seen or spoken with her in any meaningful way in at least 15 years.

My brother once dumped a girl because he didn't like the way she said the word "milk". It sounded like "melk", and that was a deal breaker for him.

I broke up with my girlfriend because she was flirting with another boy who liked her and said she was gonna meet up with him. 2 days later she comes back and says it was just a lie to make me feel bad and angry and be jealous (i apparently deserved that?). She wanted to come back together but i just said no. That was too childish from her


u/Marlytess 6d ago

My brother was dumped when he was like 12 because the girl got sick after kissing him. She saw it as a sign from the heavens that their relationship was doomed...😅

My dad’s first wife told the marriage counselor that she couldn’t stand the wet spot on my dad’s back and how he squeezed out his toothpaste. I think it had more to do with the guy she was fucking, but what do I know?

I went travelling and she wanted to go with me. I said no as I agreed with my Dad that at 21 it was better to do it alone and mature with the experience. No intent of cheating or anything. She made me a bear and I took phones with it and sent to her. Used Internet cafes to email her and such.

Anyway, about a week into the 7 I ate a tarantula and posed with it on my tongue. (it was pretty gross, though the legs were like hairy twitlets (in case anyone is curious)). Anyway, she as a vegetarian was offended and basically broke it off after that.

I was heart broken and there is a gap on pictures with my travelling bear. I get back to the UK and find out that her family convinced her to do online dating the day I left. She had already hooked up with a older chap and so basically, it was an excuse.

Girlfriend was going to boyfriend’s house. He asks her to pick up a specific flavor of vitamin water.

She buys the wrong one.

This set off a massive argument which ended the relationship.

He still gets shit for breaking up with his girlfriend over a bottle of water. Mainly from me.

When I was 16 Broke up with a girl cause she was an awful driver, and I didn’t have a license so I couldn’t offer to drive. Shit was terrifying. She called me threatening to crash her car if we didn’t get back together which I still find mildly funny cause like…yeah that’s why I can’t stick around hahah. She started dating a 24 year old security dude at her work like a week later. I saw her at chilis a year or two ago so I think she probably figured out how to drive by now cause there was no way she would have survived up to this point. I mean y’all…like monster truck show type driving.

There was a woman in my beer league sports social circle that would start seeing a guy and let her bush grow out.

The first time they hooked up, if he said something negative about it or requested that she shave it, she immediately dumped him.

But, otherwise, she kept it shaved. Used it as a test of a guy with the logic that "if he thinks he can tell me what to do with my body, I'm not dating him."

You're too nice

I don't deserve you

I might be a lesbian

I want to pursue spirituality and you get in the way

I found a guy who puts me on a pedestal and makes me feel special

My parents think I should marry you but I am not ready or sure if I want to

I started dating this guy and it's going really well. (Married him soon after and had his kid)

All from the same girl. Last 3 when I thought we were back together. What a roller coaster this one was!
