Today, I told my boyfriend I had to go out and that I'd be back later. He asked where I was going. "To see my other boyfriend," I chuckled, smiling. He took it seriously and wouldn't believe it was just a joke. I'm pretty sure I'm now single. FML

It's all fun and games until somebody doesn't get the joke.

Youre going to have a bad time if your sense of humour is that incompatible with him. It might be for the best.

It's all fun and games until somebody doesn't get the joke.

As someone who has been cheated on, it's sure as hell not a good topic to base a joke.

Sadly #2, sometimes the situation is extra fun and games (for them) until you realize they weren't actually joking.

but if Nigahiga has taught people anything is to call the bluff! she said yes to throw him off guard . But she she frowned it would counter her counter so she had to smile to counter her counter for the counter, but she did not see him countering her counter that countered her counter. Us still with me here folks?

It's ok op! If he can't take a little joke like that then he doesn't deserve a funny girl like you!

Okay I understand he is over reacting, but I would hardly call that funny. It is an overused line and quite frankly, a lame one.

All the more reason that he shouldn't have overreacted

Agreed, 24. It's a cliche jokey thing that people say, like "I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you." I suppose OP's boyfriend would actually fear for his life if someone said that to him?

He sounds like a pussy anyway, you're better off

If it's true love, it's just a small hurdle. Personally I wouldn't break up with someone for not getting a joke.

I don't think OP was going to break up with the boyfriend for not understanding the joke. Rather, the boyfriend really thinks OP has another boyfriend, there for HE might want to break up with HER. He shouldn't, but if he's lacking that much in humor and is that untrusting, OP would be better off without him.

Maybe he has some trust issues?

I hate people like that. Two ought to be comfortable enough with each other to be able to joke and play around with one another :)

Depending on how long u were together, I would've thought that he could take a joke

While yes, it's extremely childish and immature to jump to such outlandish conclusions, maybe he had some bad experiences in the past related to what you said. Talking to him might help, even though it is 100% not your fault.

horrid joke.

If OP was clearly and innocently teasing him, how was it a horrid joke?

he obviously didn't know that. that's how

She also didn't clarify she was kidding.

#30 She obviously did after he reacted childishly. And any normal person would have known that was a joke.

did you people not ever consider that she has probably done things in the relationship that made him not believe her. to jump to the conclusion he is being childish shows how shallow you are.
