Met a nice guy, been out a couple of times but he's called Bruce and it angers me! It makes me cringe and I can't seem to get over it. AIBU to just give up on him over it?

LittleBearPad Mon 30-Nov-15 20:31:32

Well it could be worse. Give him a nickname if he's worth it.

BondJayneBond Mon 30-Nov-15 20:31:40

Yes, YABU.

It angers you? What a strange reaction.

What's wrong with Bruce?

whattheseithakasmean Mon 30-Nov-15 20:32:24

YANBU. If his name annoys you so much, he obviously not the one for you. Throw him back for another woman to have, plenty more fish in the sea.

I think Bruce is quite a sexy name.

ZenNudist Mon 30-Nov-15 20:33:44

Have you said 'nice to see you' to him yet?

Or just g'day. (For some reason I also associate Bruce with Australians

I used to go out with a Bruce. He was cool, loads of fun. The name suited him. Whats wrong with Bruce?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 30-Nov-15 20:34:47

Yes! He doesn't deserve you.

I have two friends who are married to a Bruce. Both are hard workers and great dads. I think it's quite manly actually.

Eva50 Mon 30-Nov-15 20:34:57

My neighbour is Bruce. My friends son is Bruce. What's wrong with it. I would ditch him if I were you - do him a favour!

CerseiHeartsJaime4ever Mon 30-Nov-15 20:34:39

Sorry, I'd have to sing at him all the time, I'd find a nickname pronto!

"Lets call a truce, Bruce. The time has come to put that tumberly tum to use.

Come on Bruce be our hero! Cover yourself in chocolate mousse!"

CharleyDavidson Mon 30-Nov-15 20:34:41

Awwww. I like the name Bruce.

Our late cat was called Bruce. smile

dementedma Mon 30-Nov-15 20:34:44

Lots of Bruces here in Scotland. It's cool!

RoseDog Mon 30-Nov-15 20:35:03

I know 2 Bruce's, they are good people!

SwedishEdith Mon 30-Nov-15 20:35:24

I quite like it.

I did have an ex that I referred to for nearly 2 years as "my boyfriend" to avoid saying his name out loud.

TudorTrace Mon 30-Nov-15 20:35:45

My childhood sweetheart was a Bruce.

Most genuine, realistic and kind person I've ever known, I often wonder what he's doing now smile

Call him B 😄

I went out with a Barry and a Gary. Hated their names.

Refused to be set up with a Nigel once based on his name 😳

scratchandsniff Mon 30-Nov-15 20:36:39

At least it's not Kevin grin

Seeyounearertime Mon 30-Nov-15 20:37:47

Bruce is an awesome name, why?

Bruce Campbell, awesome actor.
Bruce Dickinson, awesome singer.

grin

NellyTimes Mon 30-Nov-15 20:38:06

"So your name's not Bruce then...that's gonna cause a little confusion around here"

SirChenjin Mon 30-Nov-15 20:39:57

As demented says, it's quite common up here - no big deal.

Now Nigel or Trevor.... grin

magpie17 Mon 30-Nov-15 20:40:09

Just don't use his name! I hardly ever call my DH by his actual name, I just use a series of pet names. (His name is fine though and so is Bruce)

Makes me think of sweet Valley high books.
