This story comes to us from Reddit, where a young woman was reduced to tears by her boyfriend’s rude behavior. Her relationship issues seem to indicate something deeper at play, and maybe she would be better off without him.
A Family Meal
The Original Poster (OP) is a young woman in her 20s who has been living with her boyfriend, Simon, for a while now.
One day, her father and his wife came over to visit and have lunch with her at a nearby restaurant.
They brought some leftovers and a few gifts for her, which she was happy about.
She Offered Him Some but He Declined
After dropping her off at home, Simon asked her how it went, and she invited him to share some of the leftovers. He refused, saying he would eat some later.
“Why Don’t You Make Me Dinner?”
They both slept for a bit, but Simon woke up and asked her to make dinner.
She told him she would be fine as she had leftovers to eat, but he asked if she was sure she would have enough to eat.
OP was still groggy and didn’t fully comprehend what he was saying, but said, “Yes, I’ll be fine.”
And So He Ate Her Food Instead
Hours later, around 10 pm, OP awoke to find Simon eating all the leftovers.
When she asked if he had left her any, he said he had told her earlier he was going to heat up everything and eat it.
She was upset that he didn’t leave her any leftovers, not even a little bit of fish and rice. She quickly dressed up for the night and left the room to have a good cry on the couch.
A Girl in Pain
As she was crying, she heard Simon laughing at clips of Family Guy from their room, which only made her cry even more.
She then cooked some raw fish she found in the fridge for a possible dinner.
When Simon came to the kitchen to drop off the dish he put the leftovers in, OP felt even sadder that he didn’t leave her any.
A Sad State
She went back to their room to eat her late dinner, only to find Simon already in bed browsing his phone and laughing at memes.
She wanted to confront him quickly in a way that wouldn’t cause any drama.
A Reasonable Request
She asked him, “Next time I have leftovers can you save me a little fish?” to which he replied, “No, I told you I would eat all the leftovers when I woke you up earlier to make dinner.”
She was taken aback but restated, “Do you think you can save me a little fish next time if I have leftovers?”
He Said What?!
He said, “Look. I woke you up to make dinner. You chose not to make dinner. I told you I would heat up all the leftover food and eat it.”
OP said, “But you asked if I will have enough to eat later, and I said yes. I was under the impression you would leave me some fish and some leftover rice.
I would’ve been fine with just a little food for dinner.” He told her, “Make dinner next time, then.”
His Awful Attitude
OP was hurt and upset by Simon’s attitude and told him he was rude. He responded with “I don’t care” and didn’t say anything else to her.
She cried in her chair as she somberly looked at her food. Simon made a quiet comment about her crying again and went to bed.
The Silent Treatment
OP then asked him for a goodnight kiss, but he didn’t respond.
He just turned over in bed with the sheet covering his head.
When she asked again, he still didn’t respond, causing her to cry for an hour straight.
She’s Deeply Hurt
OP was left feeling hurt and neglected by Simon’s behavior. She just wanted a simple apology and some affection, but he refused to acknowledge her feelings or show any empathy.
She wanted to hurt him back for his rude behavior but knew it wouldn’t make her feel any better in the end.
All she wanted was to feel loved and appreciated by her partner, but instead, she was left feeling sad and alone.
A Red Flag
This situation highlights a larger issue in their relationship. Simon’s dismissive and rude behavior towards OP is a red flag that their relationship may be toxic.
OP deserves to be with someone who treats her with respect and kindness, and it may be time for her to consider leaving this toxic relationship.
She Wants to Work It Out
OP is at a loss for what to do. She loves her boyfriend and wants to make things work, but she can’t help feeling hurt and unappreciated.
She wonders if she overreacted, is being too sensitive, or is expecting too much from him.
A Tough Spot
She is in a tough spot. She wants Simon to treat her better, but she doesn’t know how to get through to him.
She also doesn’t want to let him get away with being rude and disrespectful. She’s stuck in a cycle of hurt and sadness, and she doesn’t know how to break free from it.
What do you think of her story? What should she do?
