"I had an ex who was so hairy, I refused to go to the beach with him until he let me Nair his back. The whole time I shrieked, 'Eww, eww,' as he laughed and told me to rub harder if I wanted it all to come off."
—Kristin, 26, Park City, Utah

"For a few months I dated someone who, I'm pretty sure, thought he was a vampire. He watched only sci-fi shows and was obsessed with biting me on the neck. Once after fooling around, my shoulders were aching. When I took a look, they were covered in black-and-blue teeth marks!"
—Cassie, 32, Washington, D.C.

"The person I'm 'seeing' is truly nice, loving and good-hearted. The problem? He smokes pot like it's his job; his favorite word starts with an F; and he begins every sentence with 'You know what I'm saying?' though he clearly hasn't said anything yet. Oh, and he's a convicted felon — and my dad is a corrections officer. Yeah, I'd be horrified if anyone in my family found out, but I have a soft spot for him, so we hang out every day at his house, even though we can never officially be together."
—Ann,* 22, Wallingford, Conn.

"I used to secretly rendezvous with this guy who was way shorter than me, but I could have gotten past that. The real reason I never let on that we were seeing each other was that his breath was horrible. When everyone talked about how bad it was, I would play along, knowing good and well this same breath would be all over my body later that evening. It was so wrong, I know, but that little man had it going on in the bedroom!"
—Allisha, 33, Raleigh, N.C.

"A guy I was with for four years always had on one of his 20-plus baseball caps — even when we went to the theater. Everyone else would be all dressed up, and he'd look like a frat boy … a balding, in-denial, too-old frat boy."
—Mary, 39, San Diego
