How would you feel if you received this message from your boyfriend/partner?

I had mentioned that I wanted to start again with my hobby that I haven’t done for a long time (well before I met him)

I know it was sent with good intentions but I just don’t like it. Aibu?

How would it make you feel to get a text like that?

I don’t understand. What’s it about? What don’t you like?

I'd think he was drunk when he sent it! How long have you known him?

Ellisandra Sat 25-Jan-20 23:41:27

I think it would be more helpful if you said why you don’t like it. The hobby’s pottery, yes? And he’s trying to be clever with the poetry?

flingaling Sat 25-Jan-20 23:41:32

Yeah I don't know anyone who'd send a message like that. Ew.

I've read this 5 times and can't make head nor fucking tale of it!!

Well it sounds like someone has tried to make a poem based on the fact your hobbie is what? Pottery? Drawing?

I wouldn’t think anything of it. Maybe the person who sent it is trying to show you they too are creative

It’s a bit messy but I think he’s being nice, why don’t you like it?

Fidgetwonkam Sat 25-Jan-20 23:42:19

It’s about me making pottery! Sorry to be confusing

Ellisandra Sat 25-Jan-20 23:42:22

I mean, the poetry is shit - but the support for your hobby is good.

I'd be quite happy that he was showing an interest. DH never comments on my hobbies but I have to hear chapter and verse about his.

What don't you like about it?

Ohyesiam Sat 25-Jan-20 23:42:55

Do you dislike it because he was very drunk even he wrote it?

Pipandmum Sat 25-Jan-20 23:43:50

Just a silly poem. Trying a bit to hard to be funny. I'd roll my eyes but not think much more about it.

DesLynamsMoustache Sat 25-Jan-20 23:43:59

I mean it's drivel but I can't see why it would be offensive drivel.

Ellisandra Sat 25-Jan-20 23:44:05

It was obviously pottery from the throw comment - obvious if you know about pottery, that is. He’s wheely trying too hard - it’d make me glaze over. He’s kiln the lines.

Why don’t you like it?

I’d wonder what the hell my husband was on about and ask him to stop talking in riddles. I guess we are past flirty texts 15 years in though... our messages are usually “get some milk on your way home please”.

Has he mistaken pottery as to do with pot/weed and was high when he messaged?

Ohyesiam Sat 25-Jan-20 23:44:14

It’s obviously about you making pottery. Don’t you like the shit poetry, or that he has an opinion, or what?

Fidgetwonkam Sat 25-Jan-20 23:44:50

It was just a series of statements... I just find it a bit cringy!

And what if I don’t end up doing it? What then? He ‘Needs’ me to pot? hmm

DeTwamps Sat 25-Jan-20 23:44:55

Sounds like he was drunk?

Kisskiss Sat 25-Jan-20 23:45:00

So he made a cheesy poem about your pottery hobby, it’s kinda cute and silly? Why are you annoyed

Modestandatinybitsexy Sat 25-Jan-20 23:45:24

Just the kisses at the end of each live put me off.

The rest is kind of bizarre also

steff13 Sat 25-Jan-20 23:46:03

It's a silly poem that he wrote to indicate he supports your choice to return to your hobby. It's not a great poem, but I wouldn't hold that against him. Most people aren't great poets, I imagine.

Fidgetwonkam Sat 25-Jan-20 23:46:11

It’s not poetry! 😂

I think he has had a few drinks yes!
