1. “Love” Knows No Boundaries…Or Rejections

I once broke up with a girl over the phone. At that time she was in Mexico City (working) and me in Michigan. She was living n Cali originally. She immediately caught the very next flight to MI and said “You’re not breaking up with me.”

At one point she hit me with a stick

We only had a few dates.

2. A Parting Gift Of Infinite Debt

My ex reopened several credit cards that we had jointly but had paid off and closed before divorce, somehow she opened them back in my name and charged them to the max, then moved out of state and stopped paying her car payment. All of these things ended up getting reported to my credit years later and pretty much ruined any chance I have at decent credit for the next 7-10 years in the US. I’ve been divorced and lived outside the US for 8 years now and only recently found out about all these charges. I know all this can be corrected eventually but the hassle of explaining things to several credit companies and collection agencies is a major PITA…

3. A Traditional African Wedding Dress

Not exactly an ex, because we only went on three dates.

After the 3rd date, I left to go back to London as an au-pair. The guy had his sister send me a traditional African wedding dress to my host family, and a letter stating that she was so happy for us and hoped I would visit her in Mali. I noped the f*ck out. He then had his friends and brother call me and berate me for breaking up with him, had them say I could not possibly do that because his parents had already bought the plane tickets to come see me before the wedding, and then tried to stick me with the costs for said tickets.

I changed my cell phone number and had the host family say that I had gone back home and they had no forwarding address.

4. The Silent Treatment

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. And that was the most fucked up thing. 9 years together, 2 married. One day she tells me she doesn’t love me anymore. A week later I find out she’s seeing another guy. Couple of weeks later it had all fallen apart and she moved out. To go from a position when a part of everything you do is for them, for the both of you to have the best life together you can. Sharing everything with each other, to absolute silence.

Didn’t want to talk to me, see me or have me contact any of her family. It was like she died there and then. I later found out she had got pregnant with someone else in less than a year after walking out.

Sorry it’s not a very exciting story, but to me it was more fucked up being able to do that to someone than any revenge story.
