Man mocked after claiming he can’t trust girlfriend because she previously dated “ugly” people

We all have faced disagreements in our relationships.

They can be related to big issues, or over small things such as who took the bin out last time.

But one woman was left reeling after her boyfriend claimed he couldn’t trust her any more.

His ridiculous logic? He thought her exes were ugly, so didn’t trust her judgement.

Sounds totally ridiculous, and people on the internet were ready to let him know how stupid that argument was.

The man, 28, went to Reddit and asked for feedback, where he described the discussion he’d had with his partner, 27 recently.

They’ve been together for 18 months and he knew she had two ex-boyfriends’ and two ex-girlfriends.

But after recently seeing photographs of them, he had a very unusual reaction.

On Reddit, he explained: “Her ex-girlfriend is not attractive at all, which got me off guard.

“My girlfriend is like an 8 or 9 out of 10 and always looks amazing so it just surprised me she would date someone for so long who looked like that, but okay, she says she was/is a sweet person and I believe her and I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just imagined something different.

“But then out of curiosity, I asked if she could show me her other exes and so she did, we just looked at their profile pictures.

“One ex-boyfriend looks like a scrawny teenager, the other has a really big face and weird teeth, and the other ex GF is very overweight.

“My GF noticed my confusion and she took big offence to it and says she dates people for how they make her feel and not how they look and how personality is attractive to her and I agree that those are the important things.

“But I did say that now I’m feeling insecure about my own looks because she calls me handsome or tells me I look good but now I just can’t believe it.

“Because now I know her standards aren’t really that high where before I was feeling I guess kind of proud to get a gf who looks so put together. But now it doesn’t really mean anything.”

Asking for feedback on whether he was acting like an a**hole, the internet delivered.

One person joked: “It sounds like you’re really attractive. I can tell because your girlfriend, who sounds lovely by the way, has dated other people for their personality but chose to date you for your looks.

“Which must be spectacular to make up for the fact that you’re an a**hole.”

Another agreed, adding: “Kinda sounds like you got an ego boost from dating someone you think is very physically attractive, and thinking that meant that you are, too. This is a you problem, not a her problem.”

A third commented: “You’re being judgmental because she doesn’t date to your standards. It’s obvious she places a high value on a person’s personality and the way you’re acting doesn’t put yours in a very good light.”
