You're not. He sounds like a right twunt.

scarletforya Sun 09-Mar-14 14:07:15

I'm a bit confused. Whose car is it?

Er, does he actually bring anything positive to your life? He sounds like a tosser sad

If that was how the texting went, and there isn't a back story then shock at how your 'd' p talks to you. He sounds like a bastard

TanteRose Sun 09-Mar-14 14:10:14

I'm guessing a friend's car.

Why on earth didn't he just tell you if you could borrow the friend's car? confused

You are not fucking with anyone's head - you just want a simple answer to a simple question, right?

fairylightsintheloft Sun 09-Mar-14 14:10:18

and you're with this charmer because??

unluckyineverything Sun 09-Mar-14 14:11:34

Oh sorry should of explained his mates car we usually borrow it for long journeys

"what has it got to do with you?"
shock
Why would anyone say that unless they were wanting to start an argument?

Is this an isolated incident, or representative of his behaviour in general? And no, you are not a head fuck.

Joules68 Sun 09-Mar-14 14:16:48

He speaks to you like that and you are ok with this?

Optimist1 Sun 09-Mar-14 14:17:53

Thank goodness you're not living with the arsehole man.

GoldfishCrackers Sun 09-Mar-14 14:20:01

What a rude man. I'm not even sure what he'd get out of being so nasty.

You are nothing of the sort and he is being disrespectful here. He is dragging you down with him.

Why are you together at all?. What do you get from this relationship?.

He is no decent man to you let alone a stepfather type figure to your children. Put yourself and them first for a change.

I am only glad that you do not live together. That will make it easier for you to get rid of this character you have shackled yourself to for the last 4 years.

His been like this since Xmas an his getting worse. To many incidents have happened over the past few months. But that is how a typical question is answered lately. when we are together if I ask him something that he doesn't feel he should answer he blows up screams at me tells me to be quiet as he doesn't like the sound of my voice then leaves. I told him I will get some outside views of his present attitude all he said was go ahead embarrass yourself

iklboo Sun 09-Mar-14 14:29:35

Sounds like he's trying to push you into breaking up with him so he can play the sympathy card with all his mates. Let him. He sounds like an absolute dick & I'd be telling him to get lost.

You have not answered what you get out of this relationship so I presume from this that you cannot answer. That is in itself pretty damning evidence that this is not working at all.

Your children need and deserve a better father figure than this current man whom the youngest calls dad.

Why on earth are you still together, what is preventing you from giving this man the boot?. Are you really afraid of him and or being on your own again?.

Nomama Sun 09-Mar-14 14:30:13

Now embarrass yourself further by dumping his rude gob and getting on with your life.

4 years and still living separately has just turned into a blessing smile

Why are you putting up with this? sad

What are you getting from this relationship? Because from what you've posted so far you don't just get fuck all, you get the heartache of him being a dick

tribpot Sun 09-Mar-14 14:33:12

I agree, it sounds like he's being deliberately argumentative, obstructive and dickish so that you finish with him and he gets to feel like he wasn't the bad guy.

Life's too short to put up with having someone screaming at you. Bin the twunt and plan a birthday party that doesn't rely on him.

PeanutPatty Sun 09-Mar-14 14:33:27

Bin him.

CogitoErgoSometimes Sun 09-Mar-14 14:33:59

He's an offensive bully... how's that for an outside view? Wouldn't waste a second more on someone that doesn't even appear to like you. Horrible behaviour.

coldwater1 Sun 09-Mar-14 14:37:36

Tell him you only asked because you think he should drive right out of your life. I wouldn't put up with being spoken to like that.

unluckyineverything Sun 09-Mar-14 14:40:10

Your spot on Attila I can't think of a single thing ��

I'm not afraid of being alone I have stupidly been hoping things will go back to how they used to be. They won't get better will they. thank you all for your help an advice only one option I have left an that's to end things

He has behaved like this towards you for over two months - screaming and tantrumming at you? unluckyineverything, this is a serious question, I am not having a go at you or sounding off. Why are you still seeing him? Why is your self-esteem not snarling back at him and throwing him out? Why are you accepting this behaviour? Seriously, this is what you should be asking yourself. You don't live together (so I assume your finances are completely separate too) and have no children by this man - there is nothing really to stop you just stopping this relationship.

Ask yourself, in what way does this relationship make me happy? I know some people feel the need to have someone in their life, but that need should NEVER make them accept a 'someone-who-is-worse-than-no-one'. This man is not adding to your life, he is draining it out of you. I really think you need to get rid of him. It may even be that his behaviour is an attempt to force you to do so?
