Quite true.  As far as "crazy" goes, all my exes did choose to date me, so they might qualify there.  Only one was flat-out malignant, though.

I feel you, Dan. Renée's happiness about bad news uncovers a self-destructive tendancy which is worrying...

There is a pretty strong tendency for men to label any woman they have a less than pleasant relationship with as a crazy bitch. Any ex-boyfriend is likely an unreliable narrator.

If he misrepresented Momo's reaction, that would lower my opinion of him a great deal.

Were his roommates at the time def Marigold and Momo? Because tbh, I cannot imagine Momo sacrificing a goat or Marigold killing one and eating it... so either he was exaggerating or they weren’t his roommates at the time.

Angus never responded to Faye's question where she asked if Renee was the person he dated before her, so Renee might not even be the one Angus's roommates sacrificed a goat for.

Better to suss out potential pitfalls ahead of time than to walk in blind. Make sure everyone in the relationship is on the same page.

'Blood Sacrifice' = freshman practical lessons in the machine shop. It can get messy, especially with all these kids who think that watching YouTube 'how to...' videos makes them an expert.

I think that she's just been burned so many times that she's actively searching for the hot spots in advance. I'm sure that Jeph will spend at least some time looking into the past that leads to this level of neurosis and her trying to work it out with her friends. I mean, when was the last time that we have a QC character that doesn't have a personality-shaping background trauma?

No blood sacrifices?

Maybe he’s got a thing for curvy, sassy service industry brunettes with trauma

Maybe he’s been unofficially banned from several Noho cafes and bakeries because he keeps having dramatic breakups with staff.

In my reenactment group, it's not a real project until you've spilled coffee on it and/or bled on it.

While true, that isn't enough reason to write off a man who says his ex "practically had a career in belittling people" (which if directed at him is a very specific example of abuse, not just a generic she-was-crazy statement). Lots of men do suffer emotional abuse from their partners.

This is true, and I never suggested one should dismiss out of hand, but one might not want to rely on that assessment in isolation.

We've been watching Renee firsthand for some time now, so there is absolutely no need to resort to hearsay in assessing her character.

Or use it to castigate someone when you don’t know if that person is the ex in question
