When it comes to love, sex, and dating, every woman has a story to tell, and sometimes the ending isn’t the happiest one.

We’ve all been there. You’re sitting across the table and your girlfriend starts the conversation off a little something like this: “Girl, you are not going to believe what happened to me…” You know how the rest goes, and now we want to hear it too.

There’s a lesson to be learned in everyone’s been-there-done-that stories and we’re asking you to share yours – anonymously of course. Did you catch your so-called man with your roommate? Did your husband spy on you? Maybe you met a guy online who used another guy’s photo as his profile picture. Whatever the situation, we’re listening if you’d like to share it with us and the rest of ESSENCE.com family.

Do you have a cautionary dating tale to share? (Remember it will be completely anonymous!) Tell us about it and your story could be featured anonymously on ESSENCE.com. Send your “it happened to me” tales to relationships.essence(at)gmail.com or click here. Thank you in advance for sharing, ladies!

Share your girlfriend story, and you could win a magical reunion from ESSENCE.
