If you actually want to be a game designer, you need to be able to take criticism. There are a lot of good board games and your first board game is not going to be one of them. When my friend wanted me to playtest his game, my criticism amounted to an entire rewrite of the rules of the game. If this would upset you enough to curl up in a ball, you need to rethink what you want to do.

Why do people assume OP cannot take criticism. There is a world of difference between constructive feedback that actually improves the game (even if this results in complete rewrites of rules) and burning someones ideas to the ground. It is entirely possible that the boyfriend was a dick, shitted on the whole premise of the game and basically told his SO it sucked.
I take criticism well and search to receive it from peers explicitly, but I can still be hurt if people are just rude or flatout mean and that never helps the project.
