I've been seeing someone for about 3 months. I'm on guard all the time as my last partner turned out to be a bit of a nut so it could be that I'm just being paranoid.
But he was due to come around tonight as the kids were at their dads and he said he'd bring a "brilliant" dvd to watch that I'd find "hilarious".
So I got a few drinks in, we ordered a takeaway and this dvd was called happy tree friends. I said I'd never heard of it and he said "oh, you'll love it, I've brought 3 of them
Anyway he put it on and this is what it was
I saw through 30 seconds of it before asking if he was taking the piss but he was litrally creased up laughing, tears in eyes and everything. He kept it on for a good half hour (pissing himself laughing throughout) before realising that I wasn't going to "warm to it" and reluctantly turning it off.
The whole thing just annoyed me tbh. For one thing it was a rare night together (due to kids etc), for another thing it was just ridiculous and lastly, he must have known I wouldn't have liked that.
I suppose I'm going to come across like a spoilt brat but he just came across like an immature twat tonight and I can't be arsed with that a 2nd time.
Am I over-reacing? (it wasn't just the dvd, it was the OTT laughing, the big deal he made about it as if it was the latest blockbuster etc)
OMG my ex loved these and I loathed them. Cant stand violent cartoons like this. You arent over-reacting, you are noticing the big "Exit" sign that has begun flashing over his head. If he also does drugs and you dont, and likes to be spanked (and you dont) tell him to close the door on his way out. This cannot end well. Sorry for digression, just so glad am not in that relationship and keen to save you from possible same fate!
The night was a wash out really. After gorging himself on a takeaway (burping and gulping throughout) he turned that shite dvd on, made me sit through half an hour of it whilst pissing himself laughing and poking me every 5 minutes to say "watch this bit" and then he begrudingly turned it off whilst making out that I was miserable and moody. He then spent 20 minutes on the bog nefore coming back in complaining of stomach ache and he then sat down and started flicking through men and motors (my tv, doesn't bother to ask) and when he see's my obvious boredom he again begrudgingly turns it off saying "for gods sake" as if I was being unreasonable and then 5 minutes later says...
"can we play?" (to us grown ups, this means can we have sex).
Happy Tree Friends isn't eveyrone's taste (though I quite like it, partly because it's great for pissing off bleaters with) - but that isn't really the issue. He sounds like a right cocklodger ie he wants to make himself at home in your house, get his feet under the table and expect you to cook, clean, pick up after him and suck his cock out of sheer gratitude at having A Man Around. You're not that desperate.... are you?
Leaving aside the whole question of whether they are funny or not, if you don't have a shared sense of humour then I think the relationship is very unlikely to work out long-term. And if he's already irritating you then I think it's unlikely to work out short-term. Move on and both of you can find better-suited partners.
