The Dumbest Thing You've Ever Done For Love...Page 3 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
helped her to get over her ex and find truth to what she had to offer
dated her for a summer
she went back to the X
wtf.

Lesson, if its broken, leave it. it will be broken and where you left it when you come back, fix it , and it will break down where it broke down before. True for women, old cars, motorcycles, and boats.

I agree though in my case, it was the guy who was broken.

I was dating a guy who had just returned from an overseas deployment. While he was gone, the person he had appointed to oversee his financial matters had stolen all of his money and run off. So he was spending all of his time (and money) trying to straighten out back child support, house payments, etc. Before he had left, he had put an expensive leather jacket on layaway. The store called to tell him they still had it but they had held it way too long and were going to have to release it and keep his deposit.

Long story short, it was his birthday that week and he told me he didn't have the money to pick it up. He had been hoping his best friend would help him out and pay off the balance for him since it was difficult for him to find jackets like that to fit his frame. The best friend didn't. I heard about that jacket several times over a couple of weeks. How else was I supposed to interpret that except that he was hinting that I should pick it up??

So I tracked down the store and paid off the balance. I stopped by his house and asked his roommate to hang it in his closet. I didn't want it to be a big deal. (Honestly, it was more than I would have normally spent on a gift that early in a relationship but special circumstances......)

Anyway, the guy freaked out. He tried to get me to pick it up and return it. (Store had a no returns policy so I said no.) He couldn't believe that I would just do something to be nice and insisted I must have an ulterior motive....like I wanted an engagement ring. I was just trying to help out. I never heard from him again. After what women had done to him in the past (a couple of "oops" babies), he just didn't trust any women.

The funny thing was: before I did this, I asked all of my guy friends for their opinion. They all told me that I would be the best girlfriend in the world. After the fact, they all told me I was crazy and that it was too much, too soon.

Oh well, live and learn.

REally like the roller skates story... and the fact that the gift remains unopened to this day. I would keep it unopened forever, too, actually...

The dumbest thing I ever did was to move to another country. And to decide prematurely that she was "the one".

LOL! for sure this will be a forum that everybody need to post something, because all of us had been there and done that! My dumbest was to go back with my ex fiance after I found him posting and asking for sex on a website when he was not even touching me using the excuse that he was tired. LOL! sure tired of doing manuelas online! After that we didn't last more than 2 month. he gave his phone number i think to the entire website and was geting sexual texting almost everyday. and believe me i will not go back to that.

When it comes to love or life I don't do dumb things for God gave me a mind, a tool to manage my life , but if it went into another direction , I don't waste my time blaming myself or labeling myself DUMB
,but try other direction until the result is satisfying to me..

I did the whole move away thing and gave up a great life only for it to crumble to the ground later but at least I know not to ever do that again. It has helped me so much and I have been single now for 17 months (longest ever since I was 19) and I have finally taken time for myself and know exactly what/who I am looking for.

a few silly things I did for love?
at the ripe old age of 14 I had a crush on my sisters ex-boyfriend (they were already broke up) I found out his address and had a balloon bouquet sent to his house for his birthday. Talk about child-stalker! LOL When he finally did see me it was awkward but we ended up friends and to this day we talk on Fbook.

Bleached my hair super blond to get my boyfriend who just left back to Iowa to come home. He always told me he thought I would be hot as a blond. He ended up staying to get back with his ex but the picture haunted him because he loved it A LOT. When his ex dumped him he tried to come crawling back and I said "kiss my a$$!"

And finally.....I, being a country gal, fell head over heels for someone totally NOT my type. He drove a new charger with rims and he was super hot, wanted me (for some unknown reason) chased me and he had $ and I was stupid. I got all dressed up in heels and did my makeup and totally looked nothing like myself. Went to a club with him and ended up almost breaking my darn ankle. We did end up dating for 4 months but when I found out he bought an engagement ring I freaked out and dumped him. He had just left his wife a few weeks before we met and My divorce wasn't final either. What a crazy dude!

Stayed far too long in an abusive marriage with an alcoholic, despite my 3 kids begging me to leave and take them with me. My only reason was that I hoped, with support, that my ex would see the light and return to the once wonderful person she was. I left with the kids, she still hasn't changed 7 years later.

Paying for my then fiance to go back to finsh law school about 15 years ago. She ran off with one of her profs, a 56yr old woman, after discovering her "true" sexual idenity. Only hurts when I laugh.

Buying a house with her. I had to cover most of it, things went downhill rapidly when we lived together, and I ended up selling it a year later for a big loss.

My b/f at the time was acting like a child at his friends birthday barbie. (Chewing on cow dung).
My best friend wanted to meet a new guy in town and asked me to go with her. It meant me leaving the barbie to go with my bestie, so I did.
Turned out that we were later than expected getting back to the barbie and my b/f had already headed off into town to find me. (We were heading back to the barbie).
On the way back I saw my b/f's car across the road with the roof caved in. He had crashed.
We had only just arrived second's after impact.
The ambulance arrived.....My b/f was dead.

Given the circumstances, would you do it again?
.....I would like to say NO, but at that time I did not realize what the consequenses would be. I was 19 years of age and so was he.

Often times in the name of love we do some pretty stupid things.

What's is the dumbest thing that you've ever done for love, how did it turn out, what were the consequences, and are you still with that person? Given the circumstances, would you do it again?


Online dating. It works for other people, not for me. I felt stupid for using it, but now I perceive it as more of a love lottery. You cannot win if you don't play. My name is in the hat, waiting for someone to pull it out. Otherwise, coming on these forums is cool. I think my luck with meeting people outside of the internet is improving anyway, little by little.

The dumbest thing? That would have to be getting married but that isn't very funny.

So I have another one for you:

In high school, I developed a crush on an extremely hot and exceedingly cool girl who actually liked hanging out and listening to records with me.

I totally fell for her and decided to write a poem for her. I wrote it up in calligraphy and designed some sort of really crappy artistic foolishness to dress it up. It was titled "The Girl of My Dreams"...seriously.

It was late on Christmas Eve and I thought it might be nice for her to find it all rolled up with a red ribbon on it, on Christmas morning. So I went out into the snowy night and slipped it behind her screen door.

When I finally did reach her a few days later, she told me about how she awoke on Christmas morning to the sounds of laughter coming from downstairs. Since I didn't bother to address it to anyone specific, someone opened it up and the whole gang got a big chuckle out of it.

THAT was pretty dumb, I must say. No, I'm pretty sure I won't ever do that again.

Well, it wasn't love....but I believed in him. Trusted him not to hurt me.
Outcome? None. We aren't together now. He hates me now.

Hmm...paying $25K for an engagement ring and filing a chapter 13 bankruptcy to wipe out her $80K of credit card debt. Also accepting alimony to the second wife for the 'love' of the third.

Built a house I didn't want and couldn't afford in a place 150 kilometres away from where I earned my living.

The consequences were divorce (partially due to the house amogst other things).

Would I do it again? Not a chance, I would have bought the place I wanted and could afford instead of letting myself be talked into building a behemoth ! lol
