What are the things you hate about being a boyfriend/girlfriend?

Asked by Vincent_Lloyd (3007points) August 12th, 2011

Well…When I think about what I hate about being a boyfriend…Mmm…Can’t complain that I don’t like being a boyfriend. I love it truth be told. But one thing I don’t like about being a boyfriend is that I always have to fend off other guys or girls, from being to close since I get jealous VERY EASILY, and that usually turns into rage since I feel neglected… And also that it causes a lot of paranoia for me. But over all I’m glad that I can be called a boyfriend in my girlfriends life. And also another question I have is what things do you hate about having a boyfriend/girlfriend? The thing I hate most about having one, obstacles to overcome just to get to my princess, but what can you do? Life is full of them. But what do you have to say?

How much you fear losing them.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Yeah…that’s another one, specially to another. You know?

When you’re in love with a beautiful woman, you watch your friends

@Vincent_Lloyd Yeah, that doesn’t bother me so much. I do not like to give jealousy an upper hand in my relationships. More like to death or disease or a freak accident.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Yeah I worry about that too, I don’t want anything to take her away from me, the worlds a crazy place….Wish it wasn’t, but what can I do? :/

Nothing in particular, really…being a girlfriend is pretty cool. I need a lot of alone time though, and that kind ruins things a little. :/ So, I guess that.

Being stuck with a possessive b*tch to be blunt.

I don’t like mind games, controlling behavior, or being tested.

People being clingy or not trustworthy. I like my space and I don’t like worrying if a person is lying to me.

I was similar but I lacked the rage part since I would just walk away if I thought someone was fooling around. But you got to work on that. You are doomed until you can get it under control.

I don’t like dishonesty, really don’t like it when things aren’t authentic, and don’t like being judged, made fun of, minimized or invalidated. The worst of all, to the point of setting off deep, deep anger, are silent treatments.

I’m jaded, very jaded right now about relationships

Just speaking from experience with the one boyfriend I’ve had so far, I didn’t like it when he wanted to be together constantly (I need some alone time), and the fact that we spent most of our time together doing things he was interested in that didn’t interest me. I understood his wanting to share his life with me, and this sounds harsh, but I just didn’t really care at all about all the surrealist movies he was obsessed with and got really tired really fast of being persuaded to watch them. Haha.

@Vincent_Lloyd, some gentle advice? Your girlfriend will begin to feel resentful towards you if you’re preventing her from having other friends with your jealousy. Learning to trust her is important.

I’m only in college, so I try to avoid dating. When you’re my age, you just want to meet as many people as you can and enjoy your time. I dislike dating, as it prevents me from meeting new people. This doesn’t mean that I’m promiscuous or anything, I just don’t think I’m old enough to let myself get tied down to one person haha!

Vincent_Lloyd's avatar

@Mariah Hah yeah I know I mean she has friends, just me. But I do trust her, just don’t trust others. She’s been through a lot, and I don’t want her to get more hurt than she already has. But overall I understand what you mean on your part!
