I had this pair of rings at home - the kind of adjustable, gold-tone bands that they used to use around wedding announcements back in the 80's - and I decided that, since he was my boyfriend, I should give Craig one of the rings, and wear the other myself. After all, from what I could see, that's what people did when they were a couple - they wore rings.
I think that scared him off. The next day, he made up with Melissa, and I had my very first broken heart. I wish it had been my last.
