Ex Story # 9

He Dumped me in the Middle of my Finals.

I know.

What an absolute cunt.

It wasn’t even a clean break either. We had this hideous going-round-in-circles discussion one afternoon where he was saying things like; ‘It’s not you, it’s me’, (really) and, ‘I just don’t think I can be with anyone right now’, so eventually I went home, crying all the way, dumped.

I cried for three days straight; I didn’t even shower or get out of my dressing-gown. My flatmates went straight to the corner shop and bought me a packet of biscuits and an enormous slab of Dairy Milk, but I didn’t eat a thing. For days.

Then he called, late, on the Sunday night, as if nothing had happened. I was so relieved that I wasn’t even angry with him for wasting three days of my life whan I really should have been revising.

Then, the following Friday, after another couple of hours of convoluted shite-talk, he dumped me properly.

(He did come crawling back after a couple of weeks, but, y’know, he certainly picks his moments.)


  • I did that once, though we did carry on sleeping together until after she'd finished. Is that better, or worse?

    (She did get a first, m'lud)

  • Hm. My boyfriend's housemate got dumped a couple of weeks before her finals. The twist is that he had been on a year abroad in Australia for about 9 months already, but suddenly decided to cheat on her after all that time. They'd also been going out since fresher's week. Sweet.

  • i found out my husband was sleeping with a skanky, filthy little punk rawking bag of pestilence on valentines day, after he beat me up and took all the money in the house to buy her dinner.
    does that count?

  • ah the humiliation... even though I am happy and settled I still feel my cheeks burn at the memories of past arseholes. Let them be damned to suck dogs' cocks in Swindon for ever more.

  • I was once dumped by a phone call which began, "This is just a quick call as I've got to get to work..."

    Spookily enough, I actually had a dream last night where his wife had left him and he was living in squalor so I went round his house with binliners to help him sort himself out. Analyse away....

  • Bless your heart. Gotta love that "It's not you, it's me" bullshit. Nice try, asshat.

    And then crawling back to you?! Lordy. Men are pigs.

  • Men are pigs because women have allowed them to be!

  • fewclewz, are you actually trying to blame women for men's bad behavior?!?! wow, i havn't heard a comment that sexist since i left the midwest...

  • Nothing further from the truth. What I'm saying is that women time after time accept their menfolk back after being beaten senseless by them. All the bloke has to do apparently is to say he loves her, and the woman, not realising her own strength, accepts his dumb arse back!
    Down the beach on the weekends Moslem women go swimming in neck to knee burkahs veil and everything - their men wear speedos.......WTF is that all about???
    Women allow themselves to be abused by taking these fuxking losers back. They should know that they have the strength and nine times out of ten, the intelligence to go much further, much faster, than if they had stayed with some fucking arsewipe who is beating them down, making them feel insignificant.
    I know that if I EVER were to strike my wife, she would be gone for good. I wouldn't have done anyway, but the line has been set. I accept that. Pity many other women have never had the courage to set their own line!
    Am I sexist?.....no more than I am racist.....if someone treats me with respect, I will reciprocate.

    Chaucer's Bitch:
    BTW your own statement is equally as sexist as what you THOUGHT I wrote.

    Don't go looking for beligerance where there is none.

  • Um, no fighting please!

    (Deep fear of confrontation, even from people who are Not Actually Real)


    I certainly don't think ALL men are wankers. Just my ex.

    (And he was nice a lot of the time too, but that would kinda ruin the whole, um, vibe of this blog if I told boring happy-happy stories.)

  • i have bin working on a speshal GRAVY TRAP i will test it on him and if he gets out i will BIFF him then have a cake

  • Girls can be quite hurtful too, Spin. One ex- of mine once had a nosebleed in a hotel lavatory in Paris after I'd proposed to her.....

    I took that as a no....

  • that's really weird, an ex dumped me during her exam, then she cried, then she failed the exam and blamed me for failing. She'd been in Australia for a while and decided to cheat and dump me, so i maintain my innoncence (she's currently redoing a term or something due to this debacle).

  • Oh ugh! I feel for you, Spinsterella. Getting dumped sucks the big wet one. Cry it out all, dear. Eat chocolate, compose a melancholic dance, spit tacks. You have my blessings.

    Odd, usually, it's the dumpee's call to have the closure talk, not the dumper. Why he felt he needed to wham it to you twice is beyond me!

  • I refer to my ex as Satan. It suits him well.
