Have you ever been in a relationship that you thought would go the mile, but then a seemingly harmless personality ended up being the cause of the end of the relationship? We took to Reddit to see what others had to say about this topic.
It’s a good thing to have the flexibility to agree with your partner in most cases, but it can become a problem too.
One person commented, “After a while, you realize they never make any decisions and just go with whatever you want to do, which makes it so that you make literally all the decisions. It’s exhausting.”
Another agreed: “So true, it’s exhausting, and it gets boring after a while. It’s nice to be with someone that has their own opinions and ideas. Like you ask what you want to do this weekend, and it’s always whatever you want to do. Any thoughts on dinner? Whatever you want. At some point it’s like please have an interesting idea or a mind of your own!”
“Sometimes they’re not actually agreeing with you; they’re just absolving themselves of any responsibility of the outcome,” said one commenter.
One added this point of view on the topic. “Sometimes people become agreeable because when they have an opinion, the other party doesn’t care and you end up doing what they want anyway; it gets to the point where it’s just easier to agree.”
Everyone loves someone with a personality, but can it become too much?
“It’s fine to be funny, but it becomes a problem when the person prioritizes being funny over being kind. They’ll say something critical or sarcastic and try to hide behind “humor.” Or, “being funny” is such a big part of their identity that they will prioritize that over every else,” said one Reddit user.
Another agreed. “This! My ex-husband was always “on,” and at first, it was one of my favorite things about him but over time it became exhausting. We could never have a serious conversation or any true intimate moments because there always had to be a joke in everything.”
A third replied. “This hit really hard. My ex would always try to make some joke out of my misery. I would tell him about something serious, and he’d make a joke (or say something sexual). It made me so extremely mad, but more than that it made me feel insignificant, like he didn’t care, like I was making a big deal out of things. And then he’d say he was only trying to distract me and that I was “overreacting.”
I always thought it was my fault for expecting him to show me some sincerity or kindness. That maybe I really was overreacting. Now I realize that no, I had every right to be disappointed.”
