Seventeen Again

“Don’t buy me any clothes.” he said vehemently.
“Why ever not?” she asked.
“Well, they say when you do that, the relationship ends.” he answered.
“Nonsense,” she replied and proceeded to buy him some trendy clothes.
He seemed to love them. She noticed he wore them quite often.
A month later, she realized he had been cheating on her with several women.
She broke up with him.
“Do you have any regrets about your relationship,” her friend asked.
“Oh, yes. I do have one big regret,” she answered. “I should have bought him clothes as soon as we started dating!”

This is my tongue-in-cheek take on The Writer’s Post Thursday Prompt hosted by Debbie Doglady. Her prompt: Regrets.

    I’m wondering if I should even add this to this discussion since not to many men have ventured into the discussion. haha

    I’m thinking not πŸ™‚ but had a a good laugh reading!

    The quicker the experience, the more immediate the lessons. Did this woman ask for the clothes back?? I’m guessing not:)

    I kinda agree…if someone shows fondness for another person, and that individual does not…true feelings do tend to come out especially if the display of affection is happening…

    LOL! That was a tongue-in-cheek response alright… In btw, cheating is a overrated concept…just as I find monogamy. Can’t we love more than one person? Why Love Capitalism?

      Interesting, Bhavana. Personally, I don’t subscribe to anything other than monogamy – emotional or physical. But each to her/his own. But I’m sure you wouldn’t think it fair if one partner thinks they’re in a monogamous relationship and the other does not clarify that s/he thinks differently!

    I think she should be glad that probably it was her choice of clothes that got him noticed πŸ˜›
    She’s better off on her own than a cheating partner πŸ™‚

    Never heard of that. Is that true? Still, if that happened to me, I would seriously have regretted what i did.

    What an ungrateful man, letting a woman dress him up and finding another to undress him. Tsk tsk.

  14. Galen Pearl Galen Pearl May 8, 2013

    So that’s what went wrong! I’ve always wondered. Just kidding. I hate buying clothes even for myself. Great take on the prompt.

    That was a naughty one, Corinne! Ah, I was wondering if it was trueeeee!!! And slightly petrified too. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› But Debbie’s comment was a life saver. πŸ™‚

  16. Debbie Debbie May 8, 2013

    Hahaha! Good one, Corinne. I always buy hubby’s clothes, (I swear he’s colour blind!), and we’ve been married 40 years, so, hopefully it’s not true. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for joining the hop. Cheers!

      Yes, Harleena, the challenge was great because I connected with so many lovely bloggers. But I did miss this space. I’m not sure if Debbie meant us to be serious, but I couldn’t resist being naughty here! I hope all is well with you.
