Why Does My Boyfriend Call Me Names?
Hearing those words stung. It hurt, like needle sharp pains stabbing at your soul. It made me want to cry. My ex-boyfriend had yelled at me because I had forgotten to check the expiration date for the milk. The second time he said it was when I forgot how to properly address his grandparents in Chinese; it was my first time meeting them so I was very nervous and I tried my best to leave a good first impression. But instead I said the wrong thing and he ended up mocking me in the presence of the very people I was trying to impress.
What I had hoped to be rare occurrences quickly became a habit. He said it was a joke and that it was my fault for making the mistakes that I did. Eventually as the years passed and I lost the pain associated with him saying it, I became numb to it. He had said it so often that I just accepted it for what it was. After the breakup, I was devastated and heartbroken.
I started looking for jobs, any kind of job because I needed something to occupy my mind with. I worked there and was quickly promoted, but still felt unsatisfied with where my life was going. I still felt empty. The self-esteem I had was virtually non-existent. I was afraid, afraid of trying new things, meeting new people, afraid of making mistakes. I felt useless. I felt stupid for not having control over my life, for letting my emotions get the best of me.
I remember the very first week when I started, I made a critical mistake. The difference between the invoice and the spreadsheet I had sent him was that the spreadsheet showed exactly how much we marked up our services by, and how much profits we made off of him.
If the client decided not to work with us again, it was a mistake worth thousands of dollars. Why would you think that? Mistakes happen by situation, not by intention. It was the first time, in a very long time, that someone accepted me and acknowledged my mistakes as being more situational than intentional, allowing me to understand that what was more important was to learn from our mistakes than to dwell on them.
Fast forward a year or two later, I ended up going to Taiwan with the rest of the team. It was there when I fell in love with traveling and decided to go back alone the year after. Having traveled all around Southeast Asia for the greater part of a year has broadened my mind.
There are only people who are less-fortunate or less experienced, but neither of whom are stupid. Think about this: If you go to a different country and have trouble adapting because of the language differences, does that make you stupid? As a youth, I was made to feel odd and stupid.
Not only by my fellow classmates but by members of my own family. To them I was beneath them and would end up just as my father, their brother, did. This was exacerbated by everything, no matter how hard I tried, I fell short. To this day, my self confidence, is virtually non-existent.
So yes I understand how it can stick with you if a way to overcome is not found. Thank you for sharing. No one should ever be called stupid. It cuts a relationship off from feeling safe. Tiffany thanks for sharing. Just coming out of a similar situation myself. I have a business degree and run my own small company making more than my boyfriend, but he would always look at me with such contempt and find ways to bring me down.
If I made him dinner after work when we both work he would complain if I was still cooking and it was not ready when he walked through the door. If I left a window open or like you, forgot to throw something past its expiration he would go mad at me calling me a retard. He would even criticize things like the way I washed the dishes or cleaned the bathroom.
It got to the point where I was running around trying to not make mistakes. These people are abusive control freaks. Omggg thank you! This absolutely means everything to me!
I think part of the reason why i am misudnerstood for being unintllegient is because I think that way before I even do the task. But that, you can change, you have control of. Wow…was dating someone who also made. Just because i decided to take another route to the airport and eventually i was right.
Thank you so much for writing and sharing your experiences. I was with this this guy for 6 years. For the first years he was like an angel to me but the first time he called me names until now he would always call me stupid for not understanding.
Always invalidating how I feel. But whenever he tells me how he feels I keep on listening to everything he says. He even disrespects his mom, breaks my heart having to hear him calling her mom stupid. The way he was treating me starting to be like the way he treats her mom. Breaks my heart for loving this kind of person. The last time we talked was the time my aunt died and I needed the money I lend him.
I will pay you dumbass! So stupid! Don told waste my time!! But still saddens me because I really love that person. I decided not to cry. I will make my self so happy that even if he comes back to me I wouldnt mind ignoring him. First of all, thank you for sharing such a saddening story about your relationship. Just remember, stay strong for yourself and never let anyone treat you as an unequal. Thanks again for spilling out your heart. I wish it heals very soon and also I wish you the best from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you for posting this. I love this story and the outcome. I am so happy you found yourself and made the realizations you did. I had expected the worst, but then they looked at me and said: Stupid? Tiffany Sun. March 4, Elmer Erana. I like the growth here, and the props for the startup members for supporting their teammates. Samuel Neatherlin. Your ex-boyfriend is a cunt and should have been slapped silly.
My boyfriend always calls me names when we fight?
Enjoying your new role as teacher?! Short sharp shock. Next time he does it, take the kids and leave , even if just for a few days. He needs to feel what being without you all would feel like and weigh up for himself if it's worth losing you over. He has to think you mean it or it will continue.
Guest over a year ago. You should never let him call you like that! Once you let him do this, he will do this all the time. Try to sit and talk to him, if you notice that he is angry again - quit this talk.

Things That Crossed the Line for Me
Name-calling is not the type of behavior that results in bruises. It is more subtle, but can be just as hurtful. For instance, being called "fat," "stupid," or a "whore" can badly damage your self-esteem. It can be very challenging to know how to respond to such a situation. You might believe these things are true, or perhaps that you are overreacting by being upset.
We have all had toxic people dust us with their poison. Being able to spot their harmful behaviour is the first step to minimising their impact. There are plenty of things toxic people do to manipulate people and situations to their advantage.
Things That Crossed the Line for Me
Here are a few:. My god, this is a huge one. I remember so clearly my friends in high school saying that their boyfriends were so in love with them, and they knew that because they were always jealous of other boys. Not even a little bit of it.
Case in point — name-calling. You can NOT do it. Which is a surprisingly painful thing to accept. Because you actually give a damn about what that person thinks about you. And names might sound like a minor thing to worry about. It took me way too long to realize this, but name-calling matters.
What Do You Do When the Man You Love Calls You Names?
I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for over three years. I have been in many relationships and three past engagements. Those relationships had their issues just like all relationships. I have had calm discussions with my boyfriend asking him to stop. I have also exploded at him for it as well when he gets too carried away. Why would a guy who is supposed to love a woman do this? Your boyfriend is verbally abusive. Some people do not equate verbal abuse with physical abuse, yet it is considered a form of psychological violence.
Speaking from personal experience, I know how hard it can be to see the signs that your partner is toxic. After all, most relationships don't start off toxic, and falling in love can make us blind. Even after you've realized you're in an unhealthy relationship, it can be really difficult to figure out what to do with that realization.
