For this week’s #WhatTheHellHappened, we caught up with “Anonymous,” who originally asked us a question during our weekly livestream/ podcast! She was in a relationship of seven years, living with the guy, and waiting around for a ring. Naturally, my mother had some FEELINGS about that. To make things even more confusing, her boyfriend suffered from bipolar disorder, and she was having trouble figuring out where she stood with him in part because of that. That’s not enough? Anonymous had also started a flirtation with a friend and was daydreaming about the possibilities with this other man. Check out the advice we gave her in this clip, and see below for an update on her situation!
So, #WhatTheHellHappened? Here’s a refresher on Anonymous’ original story, and an update from her below!
“I’ve been with my boyfriend for about seven years now and we currently live together (I know). He’s bipolar and I worry that he’s never going to step up to the plate so to speak, and it’s very confusing because of his mental disorder (he’s functioning, not padded-room crazy). One minute he wants to get married and have kids, and the the next he’s adamantly denying it. Anyways, my question is a loaded one because we took a year break about three years ago and I met someone really nice. We’ve been talking on and off as friends, and I know he likes me. It’s really hard because he’s exactly who my mother would want me to marry – good job, nice, the whole sha-bang. My question is, I guess, more of a confession; I have a bit of a situation or issue trusting men in general. Every time I think this new guy is different he acts like every other guy by not responding to texts or giving me a lame generic response. I do love my current boyfriend, but we’ve been through so much I wonder if it’s beyond repair. I don’t know who to choose. I’m scared of making the wrong decision, so I guess I’m wondering how do you know if someone is honest.”
So, #WhatTheHellHappened to her?
Hi mom and spawn! I wrote to you both a while back and wanted to write back in to give you an update. I was with a guy for a little over 7 years, and he wasn’t going to marry me. He kept making excuses, saying it will happen when we’re ready blah blah blah. Anyways, I finally got the courage to leave him ( and move out ) and I couldn’t be happier! It was definitely hard to leave because of the time together, but I just wanted to say to your mother that she is 100% right and you shouldn’t live with anyone until you are either engaged or married bc it just makes every little thing that much more difficult. Anyways, good news! I met an amazing man and now I’m married!!!!!!! It may sound cheesy, but I really believe when you meet who you’re supposed to be with you just know and according to him he knew on our first date! Thank you so much for the advice you ladies gave me the courage to leave a toxic situation, and now I’m happily married, so I wanted to say thank you.
