What Was I Thinking?

58 Bad Boyfriend Stories

Edited by Barbara Davilman and Liz Dubelman

St. Martin's Press

The stories you are about to read are true. Often hilarious and always relatable, they all describe the moment when good sense and simple self-respect triumph over the human need to be loved—or, at least, the need to be with a particular man. The relationship may not last beyond lunch, or it may linger for weeks, months, or even years. But inside, you know: it’s over.
