By cheat - United States
Today, I cheated at card games to let my boyfriend win. I did it because I don't like him to throw the cards at me when I win. Now he just thinks I'm 'so slow a turtle could kick my ass' and that he has 'a cute little bubbly spud-brained girlfriend.' FML

Eh. If she's still with him, then he's right. Way to fulfill his expectations by continuing to take his condescending, childish abuse. He has issues for treating you that way, but you have issues for still being there. You may just be made for eachother.

Before anyone else chimes in with 'dump him'.. Figure out if you'd rather a guy you like let you win every card game, & 'sorry dear' if not. Haha. Especially if you can tell they think it will improve their odds with winning you over. How borin'

Argue as much as you like, but every girl is going to be drawn to whoever drives them crazy. A little harmless teasing goes a long way. I'm sorry you didn't get it. Lol! :]

Throwing a huge ass fit every time he loses... she should have dumped this long before him. Now he's being a sore winner, a total ass again, she should /definitely/ dump him.
This isn't a "little teasing" this is a guy who can't grow the fuck up.

Throwing cards or throwing fits? It's great you know what's tearing their lives apart, after just reading 2 lines on a couple's card game. You must be really gifted.

It just so happens that I have the same gift! So after chatting with you for a little, I finally have a solution for your problem getting laid! MSG!

you cheated at cards to let him win? dump him, btw. If he calls you a retarded girlfriend dump him and eat his children of the future. (ok, so maybe not the last part)

Throwing cards because he loses constitutes as throwing a fit. Or did your parents treat you extra special all your life?

Also, your argument has already been rendered invalid for trying to insult my sex life as part of your "argument." We call that a Red Herring fallacy; bringing up unrelated topics in your argument, diverting from the actual issue at hand. Or, it could be considered ad hominem; bringing up something against me as an attack on my character to somehow strengthen your argument.

If I say yes, I come off as a self-centered bitch.
If I say no, I come off as someone with low self-esteem.
If I say maybe, or any other indirect answer, I come off as not wanting to admit that I am not cute.

Oh, the choices.

You could come across as someone who treats everybody like a case study. You haven't done much of that today.

Haha. I'm just giving you a hard time. You're alright. Gotta run, though. Seeya.

Sorry OP, I have to go with ydi for lowering yourself and throwing the game. My husband also has a hard time loosing, he doesn't throw cards like a child or become a shit head when he wins, but he gets grumpy. I would never throw a game to avoid his bullshit, he needs to learn to loose.
But your guy sounds like a child, unless you guys are teens, this is too much for an adult to put up with. This will manifest in other aspects of your relationship. I suggest stop catering to his childishness and face the issue. If he can't grow up, time to go.
If you are teens, dump him and tell him why, let him learn from it, you are too young to lower yourself for a boy!

You're calling her stupid when you're grammar and spelling is atrocious. You know, if you want anyone to ever treat you as a smart, independent woman, you need to spell properly, and probably speak properly, too. Moron.

I have to agree with everyone else, please dump your boyfriend!
If he reacts that badly to a card game, I'm concerned as to how he would react to bigger things in life that really matter.
Please get out as soon as possible, for your own good. I realise it would be hard, but it's for the best!

I would not advise dumping him... he would probably become enraged and would physically harm you. The bigger issue here is... why are you attracted to abusive guys?

Your life will not improve until you can figure out the answer to that question.


imo, you're looking at this the wrong way. the way you're stating it, it makes the OP's situation sound like some sort of zero-sum zen riddle where if she leaves her boyfriend, she gets assaulted, and if she doesn't leave her boyfriend, she gets assaulted, but i don't necessarily see a guy who throws cards as a danger to beat her RIGHT NOW, while if she inadvertently encourages that behavior by not doing anything about it, it could easily snowball to the point where he does become actually abusive. basically, i don't see any real downside to her dumping him now, and if it does become bad, she can always file for a restraining order or any other preventative measure.

ughhhh so many dependent clauses, i'm so ashamed of myself
