It is definitely a disordered relationship with food. I bet there were other this you may not know about  in.his past regarding food issues.

My ex husband worked at an electronics store that shut down, so he was given their display Bose speakers. He went to Best Buy to buy the exact same model, and put the “old” ones in the box to return, so he got a brand new set of speakers for free. It was so incredibly dishonest. It was one of the first truly eye-opening moments I had about his character. He said, “It’s fine, Best Buy is a huge corporation that rips everyone off anyway. It doesn’t matter.” I say in the car and fumed, refusing to go inside with him, and I was pissed for days. We divorced within two years of that incident, because things continued to get worse.

oooo I’ll play! My ex boyfriend would hack up moucus and spread it all over the wall, would only take baths so he’d be washing in his own filfth,  would brag to his friends about how “kinky” he was in the bedroom (we only had sex in the missionary position, and rarely had sex), he would lie to random people about his life (ie where he grew up aka the “hood” vs when he actually grew up in the suburbs in a very wealthy area), and would attempt to pick fights with cars as a pedestrian.  

I picked a reaaaaaal winner there. Thank friggen goodness I dumped his ass and found the love of my life.

Gosh, there are two weird behaviours I’ve experienced with different exes that I wanted to share with y’all, signs of a very controlling person with a terrible temper:

Exhibit #1: We were watching TV one afternoon at his house. He had the TV remote and was flicking through the channels but couldn’t find anything he wanted to watch. I sweetly asked him if I could have the remote. He flat-out refused, multiple times. He tried to play it off like a joke, but he absolutely would not let me hold it. It actually turned into an argument. (This actually happened twice with him.) Control always shows up in little things first.

Exhibit #2: Another ex would “accidentally” elbow me or shove me in his sleep. He seemed to be sleeping so I always brushed it off like it was nothing, but it didn’t feel like nothing. It actually made me want to cry. Then I read that you should never ignore “accidental” physical shoving or pushing or any time someone physically hurts you because it is often not completely accidental.

I was in a long-distance relationship for 5 years. We only saw each other a total of 1 month a year; the rest of the time we saw each other on webcam. He once ran away from an exam literally. He was studying computer science, quit, changed universities, started studying business, and then quit that too. At 25 years old his mother was still driving him around. He had no disabilities and he was perfectly capable, but his family babied him and he let them. He never worked full time. I can’t believe I was with such a loser. Now when I think about him I want to puke.
