NOT going to link to it, because reddit is pretty much an anti-eHell when it comes to internet politeness, but a hilarious post recently:
- Guy is sick of dating his fat (and therefore ugly) girlfriend, even though she's really nice, because he keeps noticing hotter women.
- He makes a profile on an online "dating" website (one of the more "short-term" oriented ones, if you get my drift) and gets immersed in chatting various "hot" women.
- He gives his girlfriend an ultimatum: open up the relationship so they can both date other people, or he'll leave. She tearfully agrees.
- Now he's complaining on reddit because:
a) none of those hot women actually want to sleep with him, they just wanted attention
b) no sudden offers of Scrabble from other hot women online suddenly materialize, so he's lonely, and
c) his girlfriend made a profile too, and is inundated with more interest than she can possibly handle. Guy ran into her and one of her dates and even though she was totally sweet about it, he's jealous because she's got potential Scrabble partners lined up around the block - even though she's overweight and therefore couldn't possibly deserve any male attention - while nobody wants him.
Guy is asking for advice on how to tell his girlfriend he wants to close up the relationship again and keep her from dating any of these obviously superior guys.
I particularly love this, because it's obvious the only two options are "Yes, demand she stop dating anyone except you, and get dumped immediately" or "No, continue to sulk while she dates better guys, until she notices you're not worth her time and dumps you anyway."
