For some unknown reason, most ‘chick flicks’ revolve around women who are either trying to land the perfect guy, or they’re trying to get over a guy. Some of the guys in these movies are pretty bad boyfriends. So bad it makes you wonder why some of these incredibly strong and independent female characters (much like the women reading this) would waste their time with men who don’t truly value them or respect them.
It can be hard to tell when you should let a relationship go, but if they’re doing any of the following things it’s time to let them go. And just as a side note, if your partner is physically abusing you or verbally belittling you in anyway please get help immediately.
1. Brock Hudson (Matthew Lillard) from She’s All That
I’m all for a partner that has goals and ambitions, that’s great. However, if all you guys ever talk about are their goals and ambitions and not some of yours, then there’s a slight issue. A relationship is supposed to be built off of mutual support and respect. Every conversation can’t be about his latest Real World episode.
2. Billy (Skeet Ulrich) from Scream
If your partner is actually a serial killer, run fast. All jokes aside if your partner is pressuring you to do things you don’t feel ready to do, the way Billy pressures Sidney (Neve Campbell) for sex, let them go.
3. Jim (Michael Anthony Hall) from Edward Scissorhands
Jim constantly picks on people who have disabilities like Edward, and he’s way too controlling. The way your partner treats other people, can sometimes show you how they might treat you.
4. Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) from Twilight
I know, it pains me to add him to this list. Edward’s hot and cold behavior towards Bella in the beginning is enough to confuse any girl. If your partner makes you question how they feel about you all the time, they’re playing with your emotions and that’s never okay.
If your partner is doing anything that doesn’t feel good to you, or if you just aren’t happy with where things are going don’t be afraid to end things. You are deserving of a happy and healthy relationship.
