My boyfriend often criticised things I say or do eg. If I make a joke he talks to me sternly and says “that’s fkn stupid” or if I say “i was waiting in line for like an hour” when it was actually 30 minutes but just felt even longer, he would say “its so frustrating when you do that”. If I had a physical imperfection, he had to point it out even though I’ve obviously seen it before he did eg “why do you have a pimple” or “You haven’t removed your moustache” (yes, many women have hair on their upper lip).
He often snapped at me eg. He seemed upset with me and I asked if everything is ok, he said yes it’s not about you. I said “ok.. are you sure I haven’t done anything wrong” he snapped and said “I just fkn told you it’s not about you. I broke up with him because I feel like I deserve to be treated better. He keeps calling/texting saying he wants to work things out, but he can’t see me yet. He has not apologised and it’s been a month since we broke up.
I’d like other opinions on this, what would you do?1 AnswerSingles & Dating5 hours ago
My boyfriend confuses me in the way he talks. Sometimes he responds to a question or statement and just sounds aggressive and patronising in his tone... but he says he’s not angry. He will often point out things I say or do that are “stupid” or “annoying” it seriously makes my blood boil sometimes when he puts so much emphasis on the word “stupid”. I’ve told him it upsets me and he just says that he says it but he doesn’t mean I’m stupid or annoying. Over time I’ve started feeling self conscious around him, I feel like my self esteem us getting slowly destroyed.
Im 28 years old, am I too sensitive? I’ve thought about breaking up with him many times, but then I wonder if I need to toughen up. At my age I feel like I should be able to disregard these things and not let it do this to me3 AnswersSingles & Dating3 days ago
