My (23F) boyfriend (25M) is jealous of my dog (11M).
I wish I was making this up, lmao. My boyfriend gets jealous of all the affection and cuddles that I show give to my dog. I’ve had my dog for 11 years, and boyfriend for 1 year.
So yesterday, I was playing with my dog. My boyfriend was telling me to come cuddle with him. I tell him just a few minutes.
Then he totally snaps and says “I’M TIRED OF ALWAYS COMING SECOND TO THAT DAMN DOG, IT’S EITHER ME OR HIM,” and he slams the door and walks out.
I’m totally taken aback by that reaction. When he came back an hour later, he looked embarassed and was quiet.
I’m not even sure how to have this discussion with him, he obviously has some issues that he needs to address, right?
- Imagine if you have a baby with this man?? Is he going to feel the same about you giving a child more attention than him?
- This person reminds me of that other post where this dude got fed up with his gf always prioritizing her dog over him that he broke with her after giving her a last chance.
Of course it might not be the same thing, but “always coming second.” obviously has some underlying meaning.
- I would never get rid of a pet because a boyfriend was jealous, however if you are constantly ignoring him to play with your dog you are the one in the wrong. Let your boyfriend go so that he can find someone that loves him.
