My boyfriend (24M) and I (22M) went to the beach on 12/25, it happened to be a sunny day, so you could get a sunburn if you didn’t take some self-care measures.
Both my parents are dermatologists so my siblings and I are very aware of the importance of protecting your skin from sunburn and having a proper skincare routine.
my bf on the other hand doesn’t give a sht about his skin, no matter how much my parents have tried to convince him to wear sunscreen he has never done it.
When we got to the beach I started putting on my sunscreen and he asked me to share some with him but I refused to share since it wouldn’t make sense to take care of your skin just once because he isn’t doing it again, plus my sunscreen is the one I wear on a daily basis, it’s meant to be personal. He got mad at me.
Long story short, he got sunburns, my bf’s skin was so red and felt hot to the touch and it was painful for him. He called me an a-hole for not sharing with him, he says he hasn’t forgiven me yet because it hurts and the sunburn hasn’t faded, my dad has seen him to get sunburn relief.
He isn’t entitled to your sunscreen, but you had the means to help someone you supposedly care about and decided to act holier-than-thou and let him get sunburned. Guess what, I was never a regular sunscreen wearer, but I’d put some on when it was particularly hot and I was going to be out in the sun for long periods of time. That may be your bf’s philosophy as well; just because he doesn’t take care of himself the exact way you do doesn’t mean he doesn’t care for himself at all.
You let your bf get hurt just to teach him a “lesson”, wtf
