BJ'S BLOG 05/17/13 "Young and Dumb"
Yesterday during Group Therapy, we read a text we received at 77999 from a Rock-A-Holic named Lisa who was furious at her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend of five years just admitted to her that when they first started dating he once let his best friend and roommate at the time hide in the closet and watch them get intimate!
His excuse was that they had just started dating, he didn’t know if they were going to be long term and it happened when they were “young and dumb.”
She feels sick to her stomach looking at him and isn’t sure how to handle this situation.
First question I have is why he felt the need to tell her because right now he’s being “old and dumb.” This falls under the category of things to never tell your significant other! Nothing good can come from this unless the point was to give her a reason to end the relationship.
Guys like this make all men look bad; I understand that when a male is horny he makes bad decisions especially if you include young age, alcohol, and stupidity.
This is why I suggest always having some sort of counsel or mentor in your life because they will tell you when something is simply a bad idea. Sadly with the number of kids that did or are growing up with a single parent, they don’t get that support system they need.
The thing people must also consider about relationships is that you are going to get challenged severely; it will kick the crap out of you, the question is, are you willing to take what it can throw at you. Like your significant other’s bad behavior?
