Love can make people do pretty weird things sometimes. I think that if we're being honest, we could all probably think of a time when we acted less than ideally toward our significant other, either out of paranoia or just straight up being a teenager.

When I was in high school, I once looked up my crush's home phone number in the phone book, then sent him that number via AOL Instant Messenger. Why? Why did I do that? That was a very bonkers thing to do. But I did it!

A recent AskReddit thread asked women to share the stories of the times that they were the "crazy girlfriend." Some of their stories are more extreme than others. As you read them, feel free to laugh, cringe, and maybe even gasp in horror, but remember — we've all done things we regret in the name of love.

At least he tried.

I was hormonal and PMSing and so my BF brought me takeout from my favorite sub shop. I cried when I opened it because it was my favorite sub, but I didn't want my favorite — I wanted my second-favorite sub.quilles

Maybe a tad extreme.

When I was 15, my boyfriend broke up with me so he could date another girl. I asked for a game back that I had loaned to him, and when I went to pick it up I dropped off a bunch of things that had been from our time together, including a little paper doily from Homecoming that had our names on it. I'd burned off his half of it.eclecticsed

This is a lot.

My ex didn’t come home one too many times so I just snapped and ripped up all the photo of us and sprinkled the bits all over the bed and tore apart a little "I love you" teddy he gave me and left it on the bed to come home to. I felt crazy the next day. And I’ve never actually admitted that to anyone.Emmaline1986

This girlfriend is my hero.

After I caught my boyfriend cheating (in the apartment we lived in together), I cut the crotch out of 2 pairs of his favorite pants. When he put them on and saw what I had done, I told him I was trying to make life easier since he couldn’t seem to keep it in his pants anyway. I was 20 at the time.illbringcookies

So subtle.

He didn't want to hang out that day so I took the train to his neighborhood. He brought his friends to the train station after their band rehearsal like he always did. He saw me walking around and I told him that I just like take walks in his area. It worked and I got to hang out with him because you know since I'm already there... I cringe just thinking about it because he definitely knew. But to be fair I was 13. I wouldn't do it again nowadays.Zaomi

We've all done this, right?

I made us on The Sims and made us have a bunch of kids.Literally_a_Gorilla

I didn't even know this was an option!

Searched "photos liked by my boyfriends name" on Facebook.Ignoremepeas


Turned on the read receipts on his phone when he asked me to fix something else in his settings.AtlantisLuna

This one is more cute than crazy.

I was dating this guy for about two years. He was moving away, and I was helping him pack (we’d agreed to break up). Well, I got into those moving boxes and managed to write an inspirational message on the inside of each one. Things like “Are you tired of opening boxes? That’s ok, you’re doing great!" It wasn’t malicious or anything, but I tried way too hard to unexpectedly delight that guy. The cringe still eats me when I think about it.UnfairCanary

This might be my favorite.

I burned his stuff and posted the picture of the fire on Facebook, then tagged him right in the center of the fire.VinegarPrincess

What a twist!

Well, it’s not really a “crazy girlfriend" because It was only a crush. I worked at a supermarket on the registers, and this guy who worked at the store next door came in at the same time, same day every week. I ended up having a crush on him, despite never actually talking to him. I went to the store he worked at one day, his shift was just ending and the next person was taking over for him. I asked his coworker what his name was and he told me. I ended up going on Facebook and typing in his first name, his workplace, and where we lived and I found his profile. After looking through all his pictures and being a complete weirdo, I made a fake account to add him on. He accepted. Long story short, that’s how I found out he was gay.areyuna

This one hurts to read.

Sent him a video of myself crying as a way to "reason" with him after he broke up with me.likthebluud

Totally deserved.

My high school boyfriend ditched me on the night of my prom (just didn't come to pick me up, after I was all dressed up and ready to go) so he could go to his ex-girlfriend's house and hang out with her. My friends and their boyfriends all chipped in for my dinner so I could go out with them before the dance, but then I went home because I couldn't handle going to prom alone, knowing I'd been ditched. After prom was over, my friends showed back up at my house with several cartons of eggs. We drove to the ex-girlfriend's house, found my boyfriend's prized Mustang, and egged it. Oh, it was also a convertible and had the roof down, so the eggs got all in the upholstery and stuff too. My best friend's boyfriend also apparently knifed the tires, though I didn't find out about that until later. Looking back, it was a childish, mean thing to do. But man it felt good that night.myaN7

This hits a little too close to home.

Texted him for 3 weeks after we broke up basically telling him how much I love him and how much he’s changed the standard in future men and constantly apologizing for being so bad to him even though I wasn’t really. I don’t know why I did that, to be honest. I wanted to break up with him and kept bringing it up so one day he agreed. I think it was my way of closure by saying all those things to him.starrorange

Impressive! But also a tad much.

I found his ex-girlfriend on Facebook using only her first name and the city he lived in when they were dating. He still doesn’t know how I did it, luckily he found it more impressive than creepy.bloodlikegasoline

This one has a happy ending!

I was kinda seeing this guy and he told me he’s was going on a road trip that would take him to another country in 3 months. I really liked him and knew we would only date a short time because of this. So, after a month I got a passport expedited JUST in case he asked me to go with him I’d already have one. I started to sell my stuff also. Two weeks after my passport came in, he asked if I wanted to go. We're married now.YelloWoodenTable

This is actually amazing.

When he cheated on me and then gaslit me about it I paid $30 to have 500 “Ex’s Name Sucks" stickers made and put them in all the bars downtown.Ninauposkita

Talk about a scorched earth approach.

When my ex-fiancé out of nowhere sprung on me that he wanted to break up, I had to move out of the house we had barely moved into like 2 or 3 months earlier with our 1-year-old. So I took pretty much everything in that house. All the food, all the towels, all the toilet paper, the bed and frame/blankets/sheets, all of the wooden and metal shelves and all but 1 phone charger. I left his clothes, his video game/superhero Funko stuff, and tore his Walmart posters off the wall. Left them all in a pile on the living room floor. I was also nice enough to take him back any movies that were HIS, only to see him selling them on Facebook the next day. I should have just kept them.ImABanshee

That took some dedication.

I built a steel clamp (yes, I went to the machine shop and spent time designing a solid model, cutting, lathing, boring, sanding the damn thing) just so I could crush our 3-year anniversary ring. You may wonder at some point: why didn't you just use an already-built clamp? Because I wanted to crush it in my own hands, and since I wasn't strong enough to do that, I figured a clamp made by my hands was good enough to feel like I was crushing it in my hands.polancomodanco

This guy really does sound like a saint.

When we were on a break, I constantly got drunk and rang his doorbell instead of texting/calling like a normal person. When he didn't answer the door, I'd peek through the letter slot and would usually see him in the kitchen, trying to ignore me. I found the key to his garage one night and took a photo of his car, then texted it to him without context. (?) When he went on holidays I told him I'd installed a keylogger on his computer and could remotely see everything he was doing (I couldn't). I texted all his ex-girlfriends a picture of the engagement ring he gave me. I was crazy. It's a mind trip to think I actually did all these things to the same man who I'm now MARRIED to. Obviously, I'm a completely different person. (I was going through some trauma back then and somehow, he understood that and helped me through it.) I try to make up for my previous bad behavior every day. The man is a saint.sweextin

Hey, new hobby!

I kept his Xbox. I figured he would contact me since he left it at my house. I ended up playing Halo and got super competitive with it.AccountcompromisedTY

Evil genius.

With my ex-boyfriend, I always insisted on helping him with his laundry. He thought I was being sweet; really I was training him Pavlov-style. That way if he ever screwed things up with me (he did) he would have to think about what he lost every time he had to do his own laundry.DarkSoleBoots

Note to self: Alcohol and politics do not mix.

Got in the hugest fight ever and almost broke up with my boyfriend because of an argument about the Electoral College after Trump was elected. Like, drunken rage throwing shoes at him mad.pepper-puppy

Welp. That's embarrassing.

He dumped me and I refused to get dumped so I grabbed his foot and didn't let go as he began to walk away. He crawled me a few meters as he was walking away, I was also crying. I was 23.HedgehogHorizon


So after my ex broke up with me and immediately got with another girl, I made a vinegar jar to sour their relationship. A vinegar jar is a curse you can place on someone to mess up their life. You add vinegar, a picture of the person or people you want to curse, a petition of what you want to happen and optionally shards of glass, lemon, nine nails, red pepper flakes or black salt. In my heartbreak, I followed every step and for the petition, I wrote that I wanted the girl he was talking to leave him for her ex and that he wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about me. Not my best moment, but it’s definitely funny to laugh about.GoldenPorridge

Sounds like he may have dodged a bullet.

Shameful to say this, but when I was in my early 20s I didn't talk to my date and berated him all evening because he walked ahead of me into the restaurant and didn't wait for me.viralplant

Burned by birth control.

Found a hair bobbin on the floor and became convinced he was cheating on me. Turns out it was mine. I do not take that birth control pill anymore.cliclia

Well, cheaters never prosper.

My ex was applying for a coveted spot in a university. I emailed the dean with all of his cheating when we went to school together so he wouldn’t be accepted.Comprehensive_Set

I fully support this one.

My cheating, abusive ex-husband had the nerve to leave a load of laundry in the dryer when he moved out and asked me to fold it for him. I ran it through again without dryer sheets (to maximize static cling) and then turned all of his clothes inside out, rubbed them all over the dog (a German Shepherd who shedded heavily), turned them back the correct way and folded them perfectly.RunRubyRuby

This took some effort.

Thought I saw a Tinder notification on my ex’s phone so I redownloaded the app and made a new account then set my radius to 1 mile and the age to his age and went looking for him rather than actually ask about it. I mean I was right but still.feijis Whew. You made it to the end. Take a deep breath, and share this with someone who will get a kick out of these incredible stories!
