One online user told people they had a friend who broke up with his girlfriend because she could not cook scrambled eggs. It wasn’t the only reason this friend ended it; the poster said, “His friend and his girlfriend were making hot chocolate in a pot, and she was moving it from the pot to her mug with a small spoon. One spoonful at a time.” If they aren’t reasons to call it quits, we don’t know what is?!

Singing the Beatles

Another person told the story of an ex-girlfriend ending things with someone else because he sang The Beatles’s “Drive My Car,” he added an extra “beep-beep m.” We are not sure if she had an issue with The Beatles themselves or just disagreed with messing with a song.

“I liked her and tried, but I just couldn’t do it “ were the words of one man who couldn’t get over calling his girlfriend the same name as his sister. Many people agreed, with one saying, “So funny that this bothers you. I mean, it should bother you. I’d be grossed out if I dated someone with my brother’s name.”

Not Having Curtains

One shy person said of her boyfriend, “He lived on a busy street. His bedroom had two large windows that faced the street, and he had no curtains.” Another person thought they were hilarious when they responded, “Dude wasn’t shady enough.”

Many friends joined the online thread to tell on their friends, including one with another petty excuse that involved food. This person said his friend broke up with his girlfriend because “she chewed popcorn too loudly during movies.”

Another person was sincere, saying, “The guy I was with kept sighing when he didn’t know what to say. Also, he blinked slowly.” She said it “drove her mad,” and many people agreed that people who make too much noise are lucky to get a second date.

“She had a permanently sweaty forehead, and I didn’t like her accent.” Were the honest words that came out of one person’s mouth. He explained, “Tiny droplets, slowly making their way down her forehead even when she was just sitting on the couch.”

One angry music lover said he dumped a girlfriend who claimed to be a huge Pink Floyd fan. Initially, the man was pleased until “Later, she didn’t recognize Pink Floyd on the radio.” We wonder if it was the lies or that she didn’t like his favorite band.

She Liked Disco
