Relationships are really hard and they take a lot of work.
We all know that.
And sometimes, when you’re in the early stages of dating a person, the little things they do really annoy you and make you question why you’re with them in the first place.
That’s when some folks decide enough is enough and they end the whole thing altogether…even if it’s over something extremely petty.
Which is bad for the person getting dumped, but great for those of us watching from afar!
Enjoy these tales of woe…but be nice, because this might be you someday…
1. No ketchup allowed.
This is blasphemy.
Someone put tomato ketchup on my mum’s cooking. That was it for me.

2. Ruined the whole thing.
Sorry about that…
One really cool guitarist, he was so cool, 6’3, his hair was kind of long, lovely. We were walking up the street and his hair tie broke and all of a sudden he just had a bob and it was all I could see.

3. Too much chaos.
Can’t follow the rules.
he refused to follow the very clear census instructions on his 2016 census form and i just knew i couldn’t handle that sort of chaotic energy https://t.co/YPLZ2JE8IB

4. That’s all you need to know.
Time for you to leave, sir.
My cat didn’t like him.

5. Some issues going on here…
He might want to go talk to someone…
I vividly remember my attraction turning into unattraction when this guy did acrobatics to avoid stepping on grass while getting into a car. He said he was scared of stepping on dog poo. Later, we ordered a pizza and he said no mushrooms. Why? Because they grow in grass. https://t.co/q9cL60xRIP

6. Wetter than I would like.
Might need to work on that.
his kisses were too wet. not sloppy, just wetter than I would like. in hindsight, it was because the inside of his mouth was wet. like everyone’s. so…sorry about that. https://t.co/b3TNcXgdLE

7. Too controlling.
Good thing you’re out of that situation.
My ex-h at marriage guidance said he had a problem with me because I “left my tampax in the bathroom” and “left cutlery in the sink after washing up” ?. I still snigger to myself when I leave cutlery in the sink.

8. A terrible idea.
You can’t trust those people!
I broke up with a guy who insisted we sit in the front row of the cinema. Weirdo.

9. What a psycho.
You should’ve kept dating him just for the stories.
I broke up with someone because he talked (and criticised ) the whole way through Downton Abbey. This was on the back of him saying that his first dog show was the worst day of his life…. I didn’t care, he collected hats and wore lederhosen to our first date…. goodbye.. ?

10. I can’t take this!
This is very strange.
I had a friend who broke up with his girlfriend over whether fish fingers should be grilled or fried.

11. Soooooo, you have a drinking problem?
And you’re also not trying to hide it?
First time I went into his bedroom, about three dates in, and discovered he’d saved every single empty beer can he’d drank from since the age of about 15. They were piled floor to ceiling. Not even unusual ones. Just a bazillion empty John Smith’s cans etc.

12. Of all the movies to watch…
He picked that one?
He made me watch Troy and kept reciting awful lines of it. ?

13. I’m gonna puke!
Annnnnd, we’re done!
I dated a man who used to lick each of his fingers (& thumbs) in turn after EVERY bite of every chicken wing that he ate. Licking sounds included. ?

14. That would drive me nuts.
JUST SHOW UP ON TIME.
She could not EVER be on time. Averaged over an hour late no matter what the occasion was. I should have just brought a book
