Hopefully the person dating them gets these hints
We all want to see our friends and family members fall in love with the perfect partner and live happily ever after. But life isn’t a fairy tale, and we all have a significant other at one point or another that isn’t quite right — and often times, you’re the only one who can’t see it. Your friends, on the other hand? They can always tell, and hopefully they tell you! After all, you would tell them, right?
It’s not always that easy, though. When someone you care about falls for a person who seems just a little bit off, you’re compelled to tell them that the relationship needs to end. That can be the hardest conversation you’ve ever had if you worry that your friend will feel totally betrayed by you.
He had a full-on, toddler-level temper tantrum twice at a group game night. Once because during a trivia question he couldn’t remember the planets in the solar system. Then, in the same night, he got mad playing Uno, threw his cards down, and stormed out. We all kind of looked at each other and at our friend. That was when we knew he was.. ‘off.’ My friends and I were all in our mid-20s and he was over 30, so it was definitely not acceptable behavior.
A couple weeks later we all went out for the night and ended up at our neighborhood bar. He threw another temper tantrum, stormed out, and peeled away in his car, leaving us with no ride home.
Thankfully, she broke up with him not long after. She is now with a wonderful guy who not only knows the planets of the solar system, but also treats her a lot better. (stephyski)
He tried to feel me up at her birthday party. I tried to tell her, but she took his side. I tried the argument, “I have nothing to gain by telling you this. He, however, does have something to gain by lying to you.” Didn’t matter.
This was even after she had caught him cheating when they first started dating and had caught him in creepy situations like having her call him by the same nicknames an ex gave him, giving her the same clothes he had given to an ex to wear (she found pictures of the ex in the same hoodie he asked her to wear for him).
We’re no longer friends. (DwightKSchruteIV)
The first time we met her was at a bar. My boyfriend and I arrived early, so we found a Scrabble board on the game shelf and started playing. When my friend and his SO got there, literally before even introducing herself, the SO looked at our Scrabble board and said, “Wow that’s a lot of small words. Are you guys stupid?”
My boyfriend and I were so stunned that we kinda just ignored the comment. Was she joking??? (leprkonpi)
