I did some driving in the southwestern U.S. this week, and enjoyed switching radio stations to see what was out there. At one point, I came upon call-in program where the DJ's were asking listeners to finish this sentence regarding their exes: I Knew It Was Over When...
My romance writer spirit went on overdrive! I became engrossed in the stories of liars and cheaters and thieves-of-hearts. When the program ended, I started reviewing my own single years and what had been instant deal breakers for me. Here are two:
...when I found hickeys on my high school boyfriend’s neck. That were not from me!
...when a relatively new boyfriend talked nonstop during a movie. And got annoyed when people asked him to be quiet. Later he explained to me that movies were stupid, just “something to do” to pass the time. (Next!)
Now I’d love to hear from YOU. Keeping it PG-13 rated, please, fill in the blank: I Knew It Was Over When...
