Ridiculous Things People Regret Doing In The Name Of Love

We’ve all been in there. We get our heart set on a person even though every part of our brain is screaming for us to run the other way. We hold to every last glimmer of hope and go to extreme lengths only to be left with nothing but disappointment and regret.

These people’s stories are a little too relatable if you ask me.

A One-Way Trip

She should’ve just left him in Alaska to fend for himself and used the rest of the trip as an Eat, Pray, Love experience to find herself again without him. They say that travel is actually the best cure for a lost soul and a broken heart.

Girl, Get Those Priorities In Check

When you love someone genuinely, you can’t help but want to see them succeed, so you do what you can to help. But, think about it, if they loved you the same, wouldn’t they give your goals just as much importance?

You don’t want to end up angry at yourself because you ignored your gut. Often, it’s better to act on it and settle it than to ignore it and regret it.

Just remember, there’s a lot that can happen, so this isn’t your excuse to go snooping through his phone.

The Worst Advice Ever

There’s a difference between having a partner who is a shoulder to cry on, and a shoulder that makes you cry. Can you imagine the life she would have lived if she just blindly followed this kind of bad advice all the time?

This Test Gets A Big Fat F

It sounds like what really happened was that this guy broke up with her, realized how much of a mistake he had made, instantly regretted it, and did his best at damage control. We give his attempt an F.

This Equation Is Easy To Solve

In this equation, one successful, smart woman who doesn’t need to excel in every single subject, minus one controlling partner who doesn’t know how to appreciate what he has, equals one newly single woman who doesn’t need this kind of negativity in her life.

The Reason That Chivalry Is Dead

Did I read that right? Did this man just put aside his girlfriend’s safety so he doesn’t get a little wet from the rain? Imagine if everyone stayed in lockdown every time we had a little rain outside. The whole economy would stop.

No Shaving For A Man

A man should never have a say over a woman’s body. This doesn’t mean that he can’t have preferences, but you get what you get. He shouldn’t feel the need to change a woman by shaming her into fitting his mold.

Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees

The real question is what kind of Uhaul costs $4,000? Did she ship the man with it too? From space?

And if he was going to take advantage of the poor woman, why dump her in the process? This whole situation is confusing.

Music Speaks To The Heart

This is a really sweet gesture and gives an outlet for expressing feelings through someone else’s talent.

However, if you’re going to put in the effort to figure out someone’s music tastes, find songs that speak to them in that genre, compile them, and have the courage to share it, the least they could do is send you at least one song back.

Leave Grand Gestures To Nicholas Sparks

There is a reason the authors of movies and novels make so much money. They provide us with an escape to a fantasy land where romance thrives and love conquers all.

That’s why you should leave such grand romantic gestures to fictional characters in The Notebook, and just leave your ex 16 missed calls instead like the rest of us.

That’ll Just Be A No From Me

The next time, before you commit to a man, make sure to find out first if he’s from the kind of family that sips on Mimosas on Christmas morning, or signs up for charity marathons. This is the rest of your life we’re talking about.

The Secret’s Out

No one wants to feel hidden. Your partner should feel so proud of being the one who gets to have you that they want to show you off to the world.

Being someone’s secret stops being fun and exciting real fast and only ends up destroying your self-esteem.

Dedication At Its Finest

In case you were wondering what “ICP” stands for because “horrorcore” isn’t necessarily in your top five genres, it’s short for “Insane Clown Posse.”

What’s really insane is that someone with no prior interest put themselves through the entire album and were able to actually find ways to compliment it.

Does This Count As Breaking And Entering?

Break-ins must have so many loopholes. For example, does it count when they give you their consent to come over but were too much of a jerk to stay up to make sure you even got there okay?

Commitment Is A Two-Way Street

Clearly, one party was loyal and committed to making long-distance work, and the other one was setting them up for failure by treating the relationship like a chore.

I wonder how many of those trips to campus it took her before she finally got hangry enough to put an end to it.

Never Comment On A Woman’s Weight

So let me get this straight. Instead of thanking this woman for taking the time to cook him a hot meal, he expressed his concerns about her weight? It sounds like he was simply projecting his own insecurities. I hope he went home and ate raw broccoli for dinner.

So Many Questions

Sometimes, the situation is so bad that you don’t even know where to start to express your regrets. This is why we keep writing articles about the red flags you should avoid before getting attached. Are you ready to listen yet?

Food Is The Way To The Soul

Some of us are on a first-name basis with our UberEats driver who is very familiar with the Chinese food place that stops reading our order as soon as they see our name and knows now to only give one set of cutlery. Others go on crazy diets for underserving partners.

The 12-step program is the standard recovery program for nearly any type of addiction. However, your partner shouldn’t expect you to attend meetings with them if that’s not your thing. But from the look of this tweet, those meetings were the high point of the relationship, so…
