Help! So my boyfriend likes to play the "tough guy" and honestly I kind of like that! Anyway, this other day we went out with another couple, and the other guy and my boyfriend started talking about self defense and stuff. Then the other girl kind of jokingly proposed that they could try to see who would win in a real fight. Noone wanted to say no, so both men accepted.
Anyway, my boyfriend grabbed his arm, but in no time he got thrown onto the ground and immobilized. As he stood up again, he tried again, but ended up like that a second time. Then he stood up again and attacked him by surprise, which made the other guy very angry and blocked hin immediately onto the ground with his knee on his back, holding his arm behind his back and forcing him to apologize. My boyfriend apologized after some resistance.
That night he made up all sort of excuses to why he lost, saying also that he was wearing jeans und a denim jacket, which are not great for self defense.
Anyway, from that moment on he has lost a lot of his confidence, in real life as well as in the bedroom. And as for myself, I have to admit that I kind of lost attraction, even though I hate to admit it!!
Boys: how would you feel after losing a fight like that in front of your girlfriend? What can I do?
Girls: is it normal to be less attracted to him? Please, don't judge!!
