  • The Couple That Slays Together, Stays Together, Part 19

    | VA, USA | Dating

    (I’m on the couch making out with my boyfriend. We’ve just come to a compromise on what show to put on, because his family had been watching too many crime shows for his tastes. I have a fairly dark sense of humor, which he ordinarily tolerates with grace.)

    Me: *pulls back* “I like you.”

    Boyfriend: “Good! I’d be sad if you didn’t. Just don’t get obsessive.”

    Me: “Awww. So I should dismantle the shrine to you?”

    Boyfriend: *pushes me away and half-leaps off the couch*

    Me: “Too much of a mood-kill?”

    Boyfriend: “You think?! I just told you I’ve been watching too much Law and Order: SVU! That’s the sexual crimes show!”

    They Worked It

    | CA, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (My friend and I are taking an afternoon walk through our neighborhood when a car with two guys pulls up.)

    Guy: “Heeeeey.”

    (We ignore them.)

    Guy: “Hey. Hey!”

    (We ignore them again.)

    Guy: “Say hi!”

    (This pisses me off.)

    Me: “No! Go away!”

    (They drive off. I blink and look at my friend.)

    Me: “Did… did that actually work?”

    He Married Pure Awesome

    | Austin, TX, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (My husband and I are settling down for bed. It should be noted that we’re both big gamers.)

    Husband: “You’d be the best Game Cube game.”

    Me: “Oh?”

    Husband: “Yeah. You would be about space dinosaurs who wear purple hats and had laser eyes. They’d be coming to take over Earth and as a human you’d be able to choose to either help them or stop them.”

    Me: “I’d help them.”

    Husband: “I know, dear.”

    (That is the best compliment I’ve ever received.)

    Contraception Misconception, Part 2

    | Seal Beach, CA, USA | Dating

    (My boyfriend and I are driving. The subject of condoms and the correct way to put them on comes up. We went to different high schools.)

    Boyfriend: “If you start to put it on backwards just flip it, I don’t see the big issue.”

    Me: “Because there’s fluid that contains sperm on there that kinda defeats the purpose of using a condom if now it’s on the outside. Seriously, they didn’t cover that in your middle school or high school sex ed?”

    Boyfriend: “Uh, no. Why would they? This is an amnesty education. They didn’t teach us about much prevention.”

    Me: *laughing* “Amnesty? Do you mean abstinence?”

    Boyfriend: “Yeah, yeah. They’re both ‘a’ words.”

    Me: “Amnesty means accept everyone.”

    Boyfriend: “Yup. They taught us in sex ed to accept everyone.”
