Love makes you do crazy things. Here’s a list of people who should have listened when MeatLoaf professed “I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that” and instead, took Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’ to ridiculous (and decidedly felonious) levels.

Have your friend shoot you


Yes, this is a true story. After being dumped by the love of his life, 20-year-old Jordan Cardella convinced his best friend to take up arms and shoot him three times so his ex would feel sorry for him and take him back. After firing a single shot, the marksman came to his senses and promptly drove Cardella to the hospital. Instead of getting a visit from the love of his life while hooked up to a drip, Cardella got a visit from the cops. It turns out, planning your own shooting, even if it’s for love, is a criminal offence.

Smear faeces on your ex’s door, then set yourself on fire


Lovesick Rasheen Harrison chose to forgo the love letter and chocolate route and instead took the road less travelled (the smelly one at that). Harrison thought the best way to get his ex girlfriend’s attention would be to smear her door with fecal matter. After failing to move her with his bold declaration of love (surely she has a heart of stone), he set himself on fire. Now that’s class! Did he get his woman back? Of course not. But he did find himself in the back of a police van.

Cry on Youtube


After catching her long distance boyfriend cheating (turns out he actually lived with his long-time girlfriend), Kelly Summers created a Youtube channel and documented her grief for the world to see. We’re talking crying sessions complete with runny nose and smudged mascara, as well as reflective diary sessions. After the channel went viral, her ex waltzed back into her life, citing how seeing her raw grief on the web helped him realize she was the one. A month later however, she turned out to not be the one, because he got back together with his live-in girlfriend. Ouch.

Call your ex 77 000 times in one week


When Erykah Badu sang “call Tyrone”, we’re certain this is not what the star had in mind. A 28 year old woman left law enforcement officers dumbfounded by the sheer magnitude of her stalking prowess (or lack thereof). Linda Murphy, the woman scorned, called her ex boyfriend 77 639 times, sent him 1937 emails, 41 229 text messages, 217 sung messages and 647 letters, all in one week. You don’t understand. She even SANG! All this after only having dated him for three whole weeks. Now that’s real love.

Give away your kidney


Four months into nerd Alex’s relationship with bombshell Cathy, the love of his life ran into his arms, tears streaming down her face. Her beloved brother was on his deathbed and desperately needed a kidney transplant. What did Don Juan do? Volunteered one of his own and saved the day. A week after the operation, Cathy professed her undying love and devotion to Alex, but just two months later, quickly forgot her vows. Turns out, her brother was in actual fact, her fiancé.

Break into his home
Although these two have never dated, this story deserves to be on this list, for obvious reasons. Remember when singer Chris Brown came home from a wildly successful tour to find a strange, naked woman in his house? How could anyone forget? "Mrs Brown" had slept in his bed and had even cooked a delicious meal for the two of them. How romantic!
