I was given this amazing necklace right before we were married and after about a month I took it in to be cleaned.  When the jeweler looked up the name, to my suprise, my new husband had bought it for another woman. He didn't realize that even though I had it now, the warrenty would still be under the name of who he put it under. So I was given a gift that he had bought for another woman and to make it worse, it was while we were together.

It's a ... Bear?

I was going out with this guy a few years ago. He was such a great guy! He treated me like I was the best thing to ever happen to him. I was his princess (according to him). Now, as great a guy as he was, he should really let his sister pick out gifts for his girlfriends from now on. During the time we were going out, one of his cousins was getting married far away from where we lived so he left for two weeks to attend the wedding. The first time I saw him after he returned, he handed me a small gray box. I open it to find an extremely large black bear charm attached to a chain. I was stunned. Why a bear? I couldn’t tell you to this day why he would get me a necklace with a bear on it. It wasn’t one of those things that was a joke just between us, in fact I don’t think we ever even spoke of bears in any of our conversations, why would we have? The only thing I could do when receiving this gift was smile, give him a kiss and say I just how much I loved it.

A few years later when I moved, I found a mysterious box in the back of my closet. In it, along with the rest of the contents from past boyfriends, was the bear necklace. As ugly as that necklace was, I could never throw it out.  After all, it’s the thought that counts, right?

Hi Readers,

We had an email yesterday from a fan of the site who felt compelled to write us with the Urban Dictionary Word of the Day:

screwvenir (rhymes with souvenir) - Anything you keep (whether stolen or given to you) from someone's house after you've slept with them.   urbandictionary.com

Here's how our reader described it: "I wouldn't say the items I have were "stuff left behind" and they weren't gifts from adoring past boyfriends, but rather things I secreted away to remember him by."  I think we may have a few screwvenirs posted already - feel free to share yours!

forgot about it

I was with Dustin in elementary school. I moved away for my dads job but came back a year and a half later and me and Dustin picked up where we left off as if I never left. He started being rude (like most young boys when they like a girl) so I broke it off with him. A few years later we got back together in junior high (we really liked each other our entire lives back then) and he gave me his necklace to keep and hold onto. He was a really nice guy then. Well I don't remember how or why but we broke up.

I was going through an old purse last year and found his necklace. My boyfriend of 2 years was there with me and asked me who's it was. I told him I'm not sure when honestly I did know. I wanted to throw it out but I couldn't. I smile and stare at it everytime I find it. I think of back then and how care free kids are, how I really really liked him and thought we'd be together forever.
