He took the dog.
"Oh, and he took the dog we got together and that I had helped pay for and train. There was nothing I could do, because he had gotten the dog micro-chipped in his name."

We had very casually dated for two weeks.

"A couple years later I had been with a man for a few months, he proposed. It was quick but I was head over heels. We got engaged and a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant. That bumped up our wedding plans. Got married, and two months later I caught him in bed with a 19-year-old. Being pregnant, I was scared of being alone, didn't know what to do, but after trying to work it out for a year, I divorced him. Love sucks and I've been battling the mentality that it's not worth it. I'm hoping I'll find a man that makes it worth it. So far, no luck. My daughter is almost 9 and I've not found 'the one' yet."

I became the hysterical crying girl.
"I've had really awful breakups since, but that first one bothered me for so long. I didn't think I'd ever be happy or fall in love again."

They gave him an ultimatum: me or their money.
"He came home from a trip to see them two days before New Year's Eve and told me they gave him an ultimatum: me or their money.
"He chose the money. I had to live in the apartment for another two months, sleeping on the sofa bed, while he moved another girl in. Ugh. My fuck buddy and I broke his couch bed, though, so it wasn't all bad in the end."

I'm trying to dodge him without hurting his feelings.

He took me to a restaurant to try and 'mend' the relationship.
"One guy got his ex-girlfriend (who is now his fiancé) to break up with me for him.
"Another spent the day with me, was really lovely and sweet. Talked about how much he enjoyed spending time with me. But, 20 minutes after he left, he texted me going, 'Being your boyfriend is too weird we have too much history as friends.'
"Thankfully I'm now in a relationship with someone who doesn't have the emotional age of a 16-year-old."
