Love 'Em and Leave 'Em
I met this cute guy at a bar and he hung out with my friends and I for the rest of the night. I ended up drunk and back at his one-bedroom bachelor pad where we did some high school-style making out. The decor at his apartment consisted of t-shirts with silly sayings that were pinned to the walls. After a few more kisses we ended up just falling asleep. When I woke up I called my friend. I was concerned because my friend had a fight with her girlfriend the night before and I spent a few minutes consoling her before asking her to pick me up.
"You're leaving?" he asked.
"Yeah. You know I'm the love 'em and leave 'em type," I joked.
That set him off. He proceeded to start yelling at me, saying that I put my friends first and didn't have a backbone of my own.
"I thought we were getting along great and really have something here," he pleaded. "You really are just the love 'em and leave 'em type!"
As I was gathering my belongings he stormed into his bathroom, slammed the door and told me I could wait on the curb. I happily obliged and waited for my ride outside.
He then tracked me down through MySpace and sent me a note recapping the entire evening and morning, again referring to me as the "love 'em and leave 'em" type.
