My bf of 2 years is a great guy, treats me well, smart, makes me laugh.
However he just can’t seem to keep his emotions in check at times.
He raises his voice damn easily at his mum (but to be fair, his mum can get pretty unreasonable). He’s also quite a sore loser.
Few days back we were playing mahjong with my family and whenever he was about to game but someone else gamed, he would go whining about how good his tiles were and how he’s about to game. That continued on for almost every round when nobody was even responding to him anymore (zero social awareness).
Lose then lose la that’s just your luck what, why need to keep whining. Then he just kept on losing and he started getting frustrated, throwing the chips on the table at my family members whenever they gamed, throwing the tiles when discarding them, which is just downright disrespectful.
The funny thing is whenever we play board games with his family and his mum lost, his mum would whine and say how she almost won or say that we cheat, and he would call her a sore loser. Yet he is behaving exactly like that LOL. Oh yes he also said that I cheat during the mj when I gamed. *facepalm*
Anyway, him throwing tantrums during that mj session totally ruined the atmosphere and my mum who won the most even felt guilty for winning and offered to return him his money. Like what??? If it matters, he lost $70 to my mum. Seventy. I was so angry that he is a full-grown adult already yet can’t even manage his own emotions well, but I didn’t say anything during the mj.
At the end of the mj session my bf and I went into my room and I straight away told him “if you’re gonna be such a sore loser then just don’t come play next time already”. He went silent afterwards. We barely talked after that and he went home the next day.
Any advice on how I should deal with him? When playing games of any kind he just gets angry so easily to the extent that he’ll start throwing things, banging the table.. but otherwise he’s an angel. I don’t know which is the real him.
