When Your Boyfriend Accidentally Calls You Another Girl’s Name
When your boyfriend accidentally calls you another girl’s name it’s very annoying. But just take a moment before you boil over into a rage. Have a think and work out which of the following categories it falls into… then react accordingly.
1: The Ex Factor
Not ideal is it? Well this depends on a few things. If it’s a recent break up and you’re in a new relationship it could be an honest mistake from force of habit. If it’s a first offence, let it go and laugh it off. Act cool and sassy – he’ll be putty in your hands. On the other hand, if it’s years later, you’ve been together forever and he does it more than once… have a long hard think about WHY that bitch’s name keeps coming up. If this can also fall under category 3 bin him. Now.
2: The female work colleague
If she’s not as hot as you it’s probably an honest mistake. He probably spends more time in her company than yours and therefore let the guy off after a long day. But if she’s hot – you have every right to throw a plate at him. He won’t do it again. If this also falls under category 3, throw a chair at him and throw him out.
3: During sex
No. No. No. AND NO. You hear me?
NEVER ACCEPTABLE. Ever.
Right. A bit creepy. BUT if it happens when he’s sleepy or tired – then it’s probably because he’s feeling comfortable and at home in your arms. This is only really acceptable as a one off. My friend’s kept doing it.
It was weird. He was weird. He got canned. If this also falls under category 3: RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN AND KEEP RUNNING, DON’T LOOK BACK. And maybe leave behind the number of a good shrink.
5: A name you’ve never heard before
This is worrying on many levels. If it sounds like your name mashed up with another word and was a one off, let it go. If it sounds nothing like your name then I’d start the interrogation. Sit him on a chair, stand over him and shine a bright light in his eyes. Make him sweat and squirm. If this can also fall under category 3, lord have mercy on his soul.
