My boyfriend said the strangest thing

We celebrated a friend's promotion tonight and my boyfriend got pretty wasted. I just put him to bed, but before he passed out he grabbed my arm and said, and I quote, "I would have no problem destroying you." Then he passed out.

Now I'm all weirded out. I know, get a blog - but isn't that weird?

for OP:

by Anonymousreply 1306/29/2013

Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer...think about it.

A true lover would never say that, especially when he's drunk. For he's stating something he would dare not say to you, because its in his inner mind.

Remember, wherever you go, there you are!

It sounds like he doesn't love you. If he blew you off, he wouldn't care.

by Anonymousreply 1706/29/2013

Since he was wasted OP, I'm gonna say he still thought he was at dinner, had no idea who you were and his inner monologue about the friend's promotion came out which is why he got so wasted in the first place. Your friend should watch his back...or what R10 said.

by Anonymousreply 1806/29/2013

Tough call. Sometimes when people are drunk they say something they think is funny and assume it will taken as joke and nothing more. And sometimes when people are drunk they say things they really feel but would never say out loud when they are sober. Has he ever said something in the past while sober that was really off the wall but was clearly not meant to be taken seriously?

by Anonymousreply 1906/29/2013

He's deeply pissed off. Only you know or do not know why.

by Anonymousreply 2006/29/2013

No, even wasted he knew who you are. If your in a new relationship, still hot and bothered with each other then the others are correct, he wants to destroy that ass.

But if things are going so well, he might be harboring some anger towards you that slipped out.

In that case, he is an ass ready to make your life a lot like this:

I've had a couple of close friends get so drunk they thought I was someone else. I can't remember details but I said something to them that triggered thoughts of someone else and they talked to me as if I were these people.

If I take like 20mgs of Xanax and get drunk, my blacked-out self can do and say weird, funny, and sometimes vicious/threatening thing.

One time (according to my friends) I told a male stripper, "No thanks, I can see a bigger one at home for free." For some reason I was asked to leave the club.

Another time, I stood up through the sunroof and screamed at a cop, "How much, sexy? I'm into uniforms."

Then one time I ended up in the Lohan suite at the hospital. Woopsie!

by Anonymousreply 3806/29/2013

First contrary to popular belief, alcohol is not a truth serum, it makes you irrational. Talk to him about it and explain what a negative impact his comment has had on you. He probably won't remember it, but maybe together if you replay the evening you both can think of what must have prompted him to say that. Maybe he was very envious of your friend who told him an ugly story involving stepping on other people to get where he is.

by Anonymousreply 4706/29/2013

I doubt your boyfriend was in any condition to recognize he was talking to you.

Drunks have an internal stream of consciousness that wouldn't make sense to anyone else, not even to themselves when they're sober. Anyone who hears a snippet of that stream will be baffled because there's no context.

by Anonymousreply 4806/29/2013

OP here, he's pretty hung over this morning and I'm not going to bring it up. I'm sure it was just a drunk thing and I was over-thinking the comments of a man who had a little too much scotch. Thank for the responses, especially the funny ones.

R7, he is bigger than me. I'm 6'0/175 and he's 6'3/225.

r11, Not really. But he is crazy jealous.

r23, perhaps. They're at the same firm, and even though they're good friends, my bf doesn't think the friend does a good job.

r29, he has a temper, but nothing that I care about. We've been together 2 years.

by Anonymousreply 5306/29/2013

Oh, I SO agree with R53. WHEREVER that creepy comment came from, it's not a good place. SUCH an angry, violent thing to say, even in a drunken stupor. I think it would forever sort of change the way I looked at the boyfriend; I would keep that comment in my back pocket. And wait for more.

by Anonymousreply 5406/29/2013

I agree with r53 and r54.

OP, you've already got some classic warning signs of a potentially dangerous partner. Crazy jealousy is one and a bad temper is another. Although you said his temper doesn't affect you, I'm betting that you've already altered some of your behavior around it. Maybe, you haven't altered it so much that it bothers you yet, but just wait.

And if those red flags weren't enough, that comment is just a blatant one. There is NO reason to say something like that if it isn't a warning or some kind. He's letting you know something and you should listen.

I think you need to be alert and observant. For god sake's listen to your intuition. You wouldn't be posting on here if your intuition wasn't telling you that something is wrong. There is practically no violent or abusive situation that comes without any warning and now you've had a few. The problem is that by the time the violence occurs, the receiver of the violence has already gotten very used to blowing off abnormal behavior that they are dulled to the obvious signals to "get out now".

Sorry if I sound dire, but people get killed by their partners every day.

by Anonymousreply 5506/29/2013

I think it means rough sex.

by Anonymousreply 5706/29/2013

Hi OP. I too have a temper. I think that's no big deal, so long as the temper isn't abusive - that is the key. I blow up easily because I have a passionate personality. Everyone who is attracted to passionate people knows there is a plus and a minus. With me, no low blows, no hitting. Just pushy, whiny, and demanding. I aim to be fair, but if I'm not and my partner confronts me, I concede. Is that like your bf? You sound like an even-keel type. Even-keel people create good balance for passionate people, being able to take outbursts in stride.

The crazy jealousy thing could be an issue, especially if it leads to irrational behavior and the person is prone to get physical (I'm not, I just yell and cry).

I strongly disagree with everyone who says keep it to yourself. The way to bliss in relationship is through staying current and transparent about everything. The way to a failed relationship is through keeping things to yourself. The passionate person is capable of intimacy and depth like most are not. You have an opportunity here. Don't squander it.

Tell him what he said and say it makes you feel unsafe. Tell him you can only have a relationship with him if you feel safe. Then be quiet and see what he says. Does he blow it off, or laugh it off to drunkenness? Does he take it seriously? Does he indicate that he wants to make you feel safe? Needing to make you feel safe is crucial. He needs to show that you matter to him, that you feeling comfortable in the relationship is a foundational requirement. If he doesn't answer in a way that feels right, then you really have to sit with that and look at what you're doing with your life and with this person.

The path to deeper intimacy can be uncomfortable briefly, but so worth it. Makes everything better.

by Anonymousreply 5806/29/2013

R58, I think the OP already doesn't feel safe because of the comment. And some other stuff. So, "bargaining with the devil" really is not smart, is it? Intuition about a person is much more important than tipping your hand. You can't reason with a scorpion. It will always sting you. I suggest NOT talking about it. LISTEN TO PEOPLE. THEY WILL SHOW YOU WHO THEY ARE. And when they say things. BELIEVE THEM. You don't need to "talk it out" sometimes.

by Anonymousreply 6006/29/2013

I don't know why but this made me giggle. I'm sure it doesn't mean anything. Maybe you should get some bondage gear, dress up and when he comes home from work be there with all this gear on and your tuchas up in the air. Might do the trick.

by Anonymousreply 6106/29/2013

R59, I don't think so. I think OP is already comfortable with his partner, and this was a disconcerting anomaly. It's good he's thinking about it and not just blowing it off.

People are quick to jump out of relationships. Too many people don't give themselves, their partners, and their relationships a chance to grow. We're all skittish like deer. Why not see what else is possible with the one you already care about?

Also, I've said and done some crazy things at times. I have lost friends and relationships because of it, when they could have just shared their real feelings and I could have shifted things. Granted, I'm reasonable and not crazy. I don't know if the bf is crazy, but it's worth a shot to believe one's partner is capable of growth.

by Anonymousreply 6206/29/2013

R58, if you have temper and you blow up easily and you think "that is no big deal," then you get what you get. No WONDER you have lost friends and relationships. "Shifted things" my ass. My motto is "let people show you who they are. In time, they will." All one has to do is wait and watch. Who wants a friend with a "temper?" What the hell is THAT? Being on pins and needles around someone, never feeling completely comfortable and not knowing when they were going to go off about something? Not for me.

by Anonymousreply 6306/29/2013

By temper I mean I freak out about things easily. I rant about politics, I rant about the driver who nearly made me crash, etc. I don't blow up at friends. Neither do I act like I'm on quaaludes without an emotion or personality. But I've made faux pas and not realized it, because my friends weren't honest enough to confront me.

You're entitled to do as you wish. I like to see humans as works in progress rather than expecting people to be perfect without quirks. If people are willing to grow, I work with them and give them a chance. That's one of the ways I show that I care, by letting them know they were out of line and that doesn't work for me. Which hopefully creates a conversation and mutual understanding. If they prove to be faking it or not interested in improving themselves, those are the people I walk from.

R64, okay your explanation makes you sound much more like a NICE person who is just "excitable," shall we say. There is a difference between people like you who are passionate people (the type that friends say about them "Oh, Bob, calm down. And then they turn to someone and say "He GETS like this." with a loving eye roll) vs. true, scary assholes who excuse their own anger and abuse with "It's just how I am. Take it or leave it."

No matter what, if my boyfriend (or ANYONE) said to me, drunk or not, "I would have no problem destroying you," I would be creeped out so much. How DISTURBING is that statement!

It's pretty clear cut. He coldly threatened you with destruction. He probably feels you flirted too much with the promoted friend or whoever.

by Anonymousreply 7207/01/2013

OP, I’m a little worried about you. Jealousy mixed with "a bit of a temper" plus him saying such a violent thing equals one night he might accidentally kill you. What more warning sign do you need? CNN just ran an article on the Lauren Astley murder being used as a case example for teens in high schools to look out for one another and be on the watch for early warning signs of domestic abuse and relationship violence. You'd be remiss not to consider this event, on top of the things you've already told us, to be just that.

I would consider ending the relationship or at least addressing these concerns with him (in a public place).
