I know a lot of guys who seem convinced that nobody ever has feelings for them.

And often it’s like “well, somebody probably did, until you did something very stupid in front of them.”

Like these dudes:

Take it away, Reddit. Let the cringe begin.

1. Do it for the gram.

He asked if he could post a picture of me on his Instagram.

I said sure because I don’t have IG and don’t really care.

He was upset that I wasn’t ecstatic about being featured on his precious timeline.

That was a weird argument. No thanks.

2. The Control Freak

When i was 14 i met this boy who had a crush on me. He was extremely nice and really knew how to compliment a girl. I had fun with him and he made good jokes, i started to get a crush on him too.

Then after a while he suddenly started making not so funny jokes only about me, my appearance and women in general. Like “go make me a sandwich” type of s**t. I immediately lost interest and turned him down.

Years later our mutual friends told me he is a toxic and violent control freak and plays nice until he thinks he “owns” the girl and thinks he has to show who has the power. I’m glad i dodged the bullet.

3. The Jerk

Realized he was an absolute jerk to girls just because.

He also always used reddit slang in real life conversations.

You keep that to the keyboard, for fricks sake…

4. All About Me

After a while I saw how self-centered he was.

5. Well, actually…

We were talking about MCU, and I said I loved the films and had watched them. While I was explaining why I didn’t like Civil War as much as Infinity War he dismissed my opinion by saying ¨To enjoy the film you need to have watched all of the others.¨

To my answer ¨I have,¨ he explained, patronising, ¨There’s like 40 of them.¨

The conversation died when I replied ¨I know. I’ve watched them.¨

I could almost SEE his brain making the connection woman = nOt A REaL fAn.

6. Sounds like ya’ll are doing great.

I found out he got a girlfriend, while we were out with mutual friends.

The whole time he wouldn’t stop talking bad about her. He described how controlling she was, while he got a mini panic attack when he discovered that she was out with her friends.

I think that is enough to kill the crush.

7. The Bigot

It wasn’t a romantic crush, more like a platonic crush(as in wanting to be good friends instead of f**k buddies) but he yelled out in the middle of health class that “gay and lesbian is gross” (didn’t even use proper English) and very racist stuff about Aboriginal Australians in science class right to my white passing aboriginal, closeted lesbian a**.

8. The Fault in Our Stars

I confided in him that I (at the time) was waiting to hear back after an MRI where they suspected I might have a tumor.

He said we shouldn’t get together until after I get the results because he wouldn’t want to date the dying girl

9. The Dog Killer

Called me fat, ugly, emo and a lot of other things… He also said that he likes to shoot dogs in the head so I backed out real quick.

10. Boundaries, my friend.

I was dating this guy for a few weeks a few years ago. One night I got called in to work and he was really upset I cancelled our plans. He ended up driving to my work to “surprise me” and insisted on waiting in the parking lot for me to get done (I wasn’t gonna be off for like 4 more hours).

Later that week, I told him I was a little set off by it and that he needed to respect my work hours. He says okay so I think everything’s fine.

Next time I went to work, he sent me a photo of him having injured his hand and demanded I leave to take him to the hospital.

I called it quits that day. Sorry dude.

11. Not the sharpest tool.

He was a very kind and good man, but we were not on the same page intellectually speaking.

I was already in college, he was a high school dropout, and I realized two weeks into an almost relationship that I actually have nothing to talk to him about, that would be slightly stimulating for me.

12. So businesslike.

When he cancelled our date BY EMAIL, half an hour before it was supposed to start.

13. See what happens.

Dude sent back a bottle of wine after he’d tasted it “just to see what would happen.” It got worse from there and ended when, after a VERY long political discussion he mentioned he wanted to be able to use the n word (very white guy) in “certain situations.”


Oh and he’s not vaccinated because he’s “scared of needles”

14. Flick off.

He and his bestie were having a booger flicking war with one another. In the middle of class. In high school. ??????

15. Simple as that?

After talking to him

Yeah, that’ll um…that’ll do it.

Have you felt a crush deflate right before your eyes? How did it happen?
