Why do some boys try to insult their girlfriends?

I’ve had an ex who would insult me until I had to break up with him.

  • He was trying to get it into your mind that if you broke up with him, you aren't enough of a catch to find someone else. Classic psychological/emotional abuse...

  • first off - either can/will play that game.
    it's intended to get them to go away.
    partners of either gender are good at dishing it out.
    it puts the onus on them to take action.
    added plus is that the abuser gets the added plus of seeing just how much abuse the other is willing to withstand.

  • Boys can act like cunts and they don’t know better. They probably weren’t raised right or are missing s few neurons. It could also be a nature bs nurture thing,
    Monkey see monkey do, seeing an abusive father or something.

  • Works both ways. Women do it to guys all the time too. It is a human thing and not anything to do with gender. Some people are just low-life's with low self-esteem that feed off degrading people and insults.

  • I'm not sure I hear about this type of stuff too.

    Maybe girls should stop dating guys with short tempers.

  • Some people (person A) insult their significant other (person B) to lower their selfesteem and to get them attached to them selfes. This often results in person A getting something we in Austria call "Narrenfreiheit" which basically means person A can do everything they want because person B is afraid of loosing them due to their extremely lowered self esteem that leads them to think that they don‘t deserve/can‘t have someone better.

  • My ex only did that whenever he was annoyed with me. So I always saw it as a form of 'punishment' or manipulation, to make me do what he wanted me to.
