Present or past relationships, what is the sweetest thing you can recall and the most annoying?

I told an ex about how I rarely sat down to eat dinner. It had to do with how unpleasant dinner time was growing up. I never really put much thought into a dining room set, it just wasn't that important. He bought me a beautiful dining room table, came with 4 chairs but could seat 6. Mother's Day. Tho thweet.

I hate being tickled. One guy would not stop doing it, no matter how many times I told him I hated it. My exact words were, "Stop. I don't like being tickled." He'd stop, but would do it again at another time. I finally had to get really ugly with him and he acted like I was overreacting. *sigh*

I had a free vacation that cost me little to nothing. Wow, that was great and not what I am used to. After it was all over with I got a $700 bill to pay!

When my mother was ill, my bf at the time got a luxury motor coach and drove to our home. He carried her to the bedroom in the back and drove us to UAB for a second opinion. He carried her on and off and arranged everything with the hospital. That is the nicest thing that anyone has done for me.

I dated a guy one time, and then when I tried to politely decline the next time he asked he would not take no for an answer. He even came to my workplace to try to get me to reconsider. He was my stalker for a while.

There are a few sweet things but an ex-boyfriend left me a note one morning for me to find after he had already left for work. It said "your beautiful". It was so sweet I even forgave the spelling mistake

Most annoying - well I suppose the cheating and emotional abuse would qualify but I think you're looking for something simpler. One ex tried to change me into someone I'm not - that was annoying. If I'm not a super athlete then stop trying to get me to do all sorts of strenuous athletic things. He wasn't happy with my taste in food, my lack of hiking skills and a bunch of other stuff but instead of just ending the relationship he kept trying to turn me into his ideal image of a girlfriend.

Can't think of anything annoying.

The sweetest thing was when my b/f bought me a music cd of one of my favorite female singers who I found out while tracing my ancestry that she is a cousin of mine.

Sweetest thing~ I had a guy in high school, who drove to my house from his~ which was about 30 minutes one way~ to drop off flowers in the middle of the night. I woke up the next morning and found the flowers on my car with a note that said something to the effect of he was thinking about me and wanted me to know! Very sweet and we are still friends to this day!

Most annoying~ There was a guy that my "friend" tried to set me up on a blind date with and after talking to him on the phone briefly I declined the date~ just not my type. So, a few days later the "date" showed up at my house with my "friend" but I didn't know it was him because I had no clue what this guy looked like and it wasn't until I asked the guy his last name, that I figured it out!
Very annoying and stalkerish~ if that's a word! Oh, and I broke off my friendship with the party responsible for bringing that loser to my home!

The sweetest thing anyone did was bake a cake for my birthday. No other girlfriend ever did that before --and only one since.

It tasted awful--but it was the thought that counted.

I met this girl who I just found attractive but......she was deaf. It didn't hold me from approaching her but since I didn't know sign language. I used a notepad to write on it "Hey! Nice to meet you. My name is..." First time we met we would write to each other on pieces of paper, notepad, etc. Went to the mall one day and she bought me a sign language book to teach me how to sign. I still have that book.

My ex surprised me. She flew all the way from Japan to my country just to spend our first Valentine's Day together.

He told me there was no room in his head for anyone else because it's filled with me.

Right now, since I can't seem to get it off my mind, my ex spreading stupid, petty lies about me.

So sweet.

I'm going to have to change mine, as sweet as it was, because you just reminded me of this. My first love (the love of my life, to this day) used to drive 3 hours to come see me, knowing my mom might not let me out and I might not get to see him. He did this several times and never complained once. *sigh*
