Relationships aren’t easy. They rely on two people to act maturely, whilst taking each other’s feelings into account. There is no room for a selfish attitude or narcissism when two people make a commitment to one another. Yet somehow, hints of the unhinged can filter into the tightest of relationships, as these Reddit users prove with their scandalous dating stories…

WARNING: Their experiences with their ex may put you off dating forever. It’s time to delete Tinder and live a single life folks!

1. They can’t just kiss and make up

“After I broke up with her, she used makeup to feign bruising on her arms, neck, and face. She then proceeded to send pictures of it to all of our mutual friends ‘warning them’ about me.”

2. Doggy dilemma

“I suspect she was crazy long before I knew her, but I realized she was a fucking sociopath when she asked me to euthanize my dog because ‘he was taking up too much of ‘our’ time’.”

3. That escalated quickly

“Painted my name all over his bedroom, bathroom and lounge room. Proposed and then Photoshopped us into wedding pictures, sent invites all his family, mine and my friends, got an ultrasound photo online and tried to announce to Facebook we were expecting a baby, shaved our initials into his cat and left hundreds of love letters taped to my car So that was crazy… We went on half a double date with friends, I was just being a good sport, noped out when he proposed when my food came. The rest came over the next week…

“Edit to clarify as I feel I wasn’t clear: this was all after the one and ONLY date. This wasn’t a ‘we dated for months and then his crazy came out’ this was ‘we met an hour ago why are you proposing to me’.”
