This is a question Horrible things I've done to a loved one

You shat on her Justin Bieber poster because you adore her. She cleaned the toilet bowl with your toothbrush for the same reason. Tell us of the times true love has not been as true as it should

Jeremy Vine is a bastard
I should have known better but after "seeing what's on Radio 2" yesterday I found myself listening in to everyone's least favourite Vine brother who was discussing online infidelity. A woman had called in to tell her story, involving her husband of some years sharing intimate conversations and photos with another girl through the Internet.

She'd been tipped off, an almighty row had ensued and even after so long together she had found herself unable to forgive him and had thrown him out of the house. Her voice cracking with emotion at the recollection, she soldiered through Jeremy's sensationalist probing into the intimate details and bravely weathered his opining about how "Men don't think it's cheating if there's no MECHANICAL action," as if for all the world he was some weird third gender, innocent of any irrationality whatsoever.

She told how she had eventually decided to give him a second chance for the sake of the family but was finding it very hard ever to trust him again - the episode had robbed her of the secure marriage she thought she could rely upon. By the end she was clearly on the brink of tears and I was genuinely moved as she said goodbye.

"Thank you for that," said Jezza, the intro of his next record playing. "And now Stevie Nicks with 'My Secret Love'..."

More bad / tactless dedications
To a couple who were to be married that very day, a radio DJ played "You left me just when I needed you most".

Mind you, some friends of mine chose "Nothing Compares 2 U", another song about a break up, as their wedding dance song!

The irony was, we were already convinced that the marriage was a huge mistake -- to the point that at the reception we were having a sweepstake on how long it would last. And wondering whether they did gift vouchers at Relate. I even remember idly hoping I'd be around to "comfort" the bride when it all fell apart.

It did. I was.

Nothing Compares 2 U is not a break up song.
It's a song about giving up smoking.

Actually, I am fairly sure that's not true, but I was told that at the time it came out and believed it for years.

I just googled the lyrics to see if I was being really dumb or if it could potentially pass as being about giving up smoking.
and actually, at a stretch it could. So I am only a little dumb.

And certainly not as dumb as the person who posted the lyrics and prefaced it with 'She wrote this about the death of her baby'. Which I imagine would come as news to Prince.

his show has a habit of doing things like this
there was a piece a few months ago now featuring an HGV driver who had been involved in an accident with a drunk driver who ploughed into his Lorry. The drunk was killed and even though the HGV driver was cleared of any wrong doing, he had to give up driving completely due to the trauma.

The Driver was in tears recounting the story, and I sh*t you not, the next song that was played was 'Who's Gonna Drive You Home' by The Cars

...the hate for Jeremy Vine? He's usually respecful and sympathetic with guests. He's not exactly John Gaunt, is he?

Although he does make some horrendous song choices. I'm pretty sure he does it on purpose.
My personal favourite is when he had finished a discussion about abortion and decided to play 'Baby Come Back'...
